iLoud & iLoud Mini
For the first time, musicians can have a portable speaker that sounds like a studio monitor, and allows them to create high-quality compositions and accurate mixes on the go. So grab your iPhone or iPad and just rip out one brilliant tune after another with iLoud or iLoud Mini.
As its name implies, iLoud is much louder than your average portable speaker. With a full 40 Watts of sonic power, iLoud sounds 2-3 times louder than comparable-sized speakers. It provides a richer, more powerful sound for any type of music style from rock to hip-hop to electronic music. It allows you to reproduce your music in every possible mobile situation – as accurately as you would in the comfort of your studio. The sound quality and fidelity of iLoud will absolutely blow you away.
Together with its high-power output, iLoud also distinguishes itself for its hi-fi sound, which can't be obtained from your generic, off-the-shelf, fancy speaker. Thanks to its time-aligned 2-way system, precision custom neodymium loudspeakers, tuned bass-reflex, non-resonant enclosure and DSP processing,
Plug and play
Here’s where it gets interesting. Grab your guitar and plug it into iLoud, plug in your mobile device, launch your favorite mobile app like AmpliTube or VocaLive and start jamming and recording. iLoud features a built-in iRig circuit for directly connecting a guitar or a dynamic microphone, and allowing you to take advantage of the real time sound processing of your favorite mobile apps.
Not only does iLoud offer the characteristics typical of a high-end system, but it packs them in an ultra-small enclosure that can be easily carried anywhere in a laptop bag or a backpack. It has the overall dimensions of an iPad, is only 6 cm (2.3”) deep, and features a tilted shape for optimal listening on a desktop. Thanks to its long-lasting battery, iLoud is the ideal speaker to be carried around by mobile musicians, whether they're composing, recording, or they simply want to listen to high-quality music anytime and everywhere.
iLoud is not only perfect for monitoring your creations, but you can stream audio to it via Bluetooth, creating a perfect wireless portable speaker system. It gives you the convenience of a cableless connection, together with the performance of a hi-fi speaker, and offers a superior listening experience at home, with your friends, and on the go.
