IK Multimedia ARC System 2 Room Correction Software with Microphone
The iK Multimedia ARC System 2 Advanced Room Correction System Software is the first acoustic correction system that combines a measurement microphone, measurement software and a correction plug-in for most popular DAWs to improve the acoustics and sonic reliability of your studio.
ARC works by measuring your room using the included measurement microphone and measurement software and then generates an algorithm to provide a correction of your room’s acoustic problems that you can apply to your mix using the included plug-in. You can record and mix with confidence knowing that what you hear from your speakers is a faithful representation of how your music will translate to the outside world.
ARC uses Audyssey MultEQ XT32 patented technology to improve your monitoring system so what you hear is not affected by distortions caused by room acoustics. ARC 2 can improve the acoustics of ANY room. An untreated room will experience a dramatic improvement – but also treated rooms will sound better depending on the quality of the existing treatment. Many of ARC 2 improvements make it more effective in a wide spectrum of applications — from amateur bedroom studios to the most high-end professionally treated studios.
