Faster Acoustic Room Correction

iLoud studio monitors feature built-in ARC calibration, tuning themselves to their environment with the ARC measurement microphone. X-MONITOR makes the process even easier with step-by-step instructions and visual feedback on the calibration progress.


When the process is complete, you get a graphic representation of the room analysis before and after correction, and you can use X-MONITOR to turn on or off the room correction conveniently without leaving your listening position.


Iconic speaker emulation

X-MONITOR controls iLoud monitors’ ability to emulate the frequency and phase response of the most famous studio monitors on the market. It works with the ARC settings for the best possible sound in any listening environment. This is ideal for testing a mix on different reference systems quickly, without ever leaving the sweet spot and ARC’s calibration.


Choose the emulation you want to try from the Virtual Monitoring dropdown menu and X-MONITOR applies your selection to the iLoud monitors. For immersive audio setups, X-MONITOR lets you choose the same or different monitor emulations for each iLoud monitor or pair of monitors for maximum flexibility. The speaker emulations are stored inside the iLoud studio monitors’ firmware, and the last one used is recalled the next time the speakers are turned on.

Using X-MONITOR or the optional remote control (only available for iLoud Precision monitors) makes it incredibly easy to audition and load the over 20 iconic speaker emulations or return the iLoud studio monitor to its original, superior sound.

Monitors Composition

Customize your response curve

Want to customize your listening experience? X-MONITOR lets you create custom EQ settings. With its dedicated Acoustic Contour page inside, you can adjust specific frequency ranges, with or without ARC, to suit your needs and save them as selectable user presets. These settings are stored inside the iLoud studio monitor and are recalled automatically the next time you turn the speaker on. Once you load a favorite profile, X-MONITOR is only needed to change settings.

Rear panel control
on your desktop

X-MONITOR gives you access to all the same controls as iLoud studio monitors’ rear panel from your desktop and lets you save their settings as user presets for easy recall. You can select individual speakers or linked pairs. From the software, you can adjust the low-frequency extension, the low- and high-frequency contours, and more. No more struggling to experiment with back panel settings. It can all be adjusted within X-MONITOR.


Software remote control

X-MONITOR’s user interface includes a virtual version of the optional wired remote control sold separately for iLoud Precision. You can change the virtual remote’s default selection of preset settings with any combination of user presets and virtual monitor emulations.

You can use it to quickly recall up to 4 favorite presets, such as different speaker profiles for A/B testing, dimming (-20 dB), system mute, ARC on/off, standby and more.

Easy setup and updates

As IK releases periodic firmware updates with new features and speaker emulations, X-MONITOR keeps you informed and guides you through the firmware update process. It also includes diagnostic tools on the system status showing the selected speaker’s model name (default or assigned by you), serial number and any alerts reported by the firmware. X-MONITOR makes it easy to keep your iLoud studio monitors up-to-date and running optimally.
