Available as a downloadable upgrade for those whose already own the previous version, ARC System 2 from IK Multimedia is a studio-acoustics room-correction solution for improving anything from a bedroom studio to a high-end facility. The system utilizes a professional calibrated measurement microphone and stand-alone software to calculate proper room correction, providing an equalization solution in the form of a multi-platform plug-in.
The ARC system features Audyssey MultEQ XT32 technology that measures acoustical information throughout the listening area in the studio. After compiling this information to provide an accurate representation of the room's acoustical problems, the equalization solution corrects for both time- and frequency-response problems effectively and efficiently.
These measurements allow the software to accurately correct the entire room, not just the engineer's "sweet spot." Once a correction algorithm has been generated, placing the included plug-in on the DAW master bus delivers an accurate monitoring environment. Regardless of the acoustical issues in a studio, recording, mixing or mastering becomes immediately clear and reliable. Do remember, however, to bypass the plugin when bouncing your finished track.
Note: You must be a registered user of ARC System version 1 or ARC System TDM in order to purchase this Upgrade.
