IK Multimedia ARC System 2.5 Upgrade overview

  • 1Description

Available to registered users of ARC System 1 and ARC System TDM, IK Multimedia ARC System 2.5 Upgrade offers a solution for quickly improving audio monitoring accuracy without costly acoustic room treatment, in music-creation spaces ranging from bedroom studios to high-end control rooms. The system utilizes a calibrated NEMS measurement microphone (available separately) and standalone multi-point measurement software to create measurement sets that are specific to your room. ARC 2.5 then calculates a correction algorithm, which you can apply to your music by inserting the included correction plug-in on your DAW master bus.

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 profile, the equalization solution corrects for frequency response and phase distortion issues, effectively and efficiently.

These measurements allow the software to improve monitoring for the entire room, not just the engineer's sweet spot. Regardless of the acoustical limitations of your studio, ARC System 2.5 enhances clarity, stereo imaging, and frequency response for faster and more reliable mixing. Do remember, however, to bypass the plug-in when bouncing your finished track.

Note: This upgrade is available to registered users of ARC System 1 or ARC System TDM. It does not include MEMS measurement microphone.

Software Differences Between Version 2.5 and Version 1
  • Supports new MEMS measurement microphone (as well as previous ARC mic models)
  • Completely redesigned interface for improved usability
  • Four times greater resolution improves critical low-end response
  • Smoother, more natural sound in the midrange and high frequencies
  • Combined L/R correction option maintains perfect focus with symmetrical control rooms
  • Customizable target curves to match engineer's personal taste
  • Virtual Monitoring mimics the sound of various listening devices like popular studio monitors, car systems, boom boxes, and more, allowing you to hear how mixes translate on different systems
  • Monitor Control panel interface streamlines workflow
  • Fewer measurements now get higher-quality results and shorter setup time
  • Measurements can be saved and used for multiple correction setups
  • DAW-based acoustic room correction plug-in
  • Includes measurement software and multi-platform correction plug-in
  • Improves clarity, stereo imaging, and frequency response of your monitoring system for faster and more reliable mixing
  • Improves the sound of any room, from bedroom studio to high-end control rooms
  • Audyssey MultEQ XT32 technology corrects frequency and phase distortion not only for the engineer's "sweet spot", but also multiple points in the room
  • Step by step measurement set-up can be made by anyone
  • Perfect for the traveling engineer and on-the-spot corrections
  • 64-bit native plug-in compatibility
Measurement Software
  • Automatic multi-point room measurement system based on Audyssey MultEQ XT32 technology
  • +/-0.5 dB measurement precision when used with the ARC System 2.5 MEMS microphone (microphone available separately)
  • Saves measurement sets to be opened with the ARC System Correction plug-in
Correction Plug-In
  • Multi-platform high-quality frequency and time-domain correction processor based on Audyssey MultEQ XT32 technology
  • +/-0.5 dB correction precision when used with the ARC System 2.5 MEMS microphone (microphone available separately)
  • 32-bit floating point correction processor resolution
  • 32 to 192 kHz correction processor supported sampling rates
  • Four factory target curves plus four custom target curves to match engineers’ personal tastes
