Software, plug-in and microphone for room correction.

ARC System 2 (Advanced Room Correction) is the sequel of the first and only acoustic correction system that combines a measurement microphone, measurement software AND a correction plug-in to improve the sound reliability and acoustics of your studio in an elegant, low-cost portable solution.

ARC uses a patented technology to improve your monitoring system so what you hear is not affected by distortions caused by room acoustics. Near field monitor systems used in studio applications are designed to deliver sound without distortion or coloration. However, when they are placed in a room, surrounding walls, ceiling, furniture and other objects reflect and absorb sounds, creating complex distortions specific to that room. This ultimately causes them to lose the accuracy they have been designed for, and you end up hearing more of the sound of the room than the music actually being produced.

Traditionally, studio acoustics can be improved using acoustic treatments - but these are generally very expensive and require professional installations - which is often not practical in many of today's home and project studio. Other types of electronic correction systems use some form of equalization that works only on the frequency response of the room but worsen the phase response of what you are hearing. ARC System 2 solves all these problems elegantly, with a unique, innovative DAW-based solution that works both in the frequency/time domain and is not affected by any of the drawbacks of other type of correction systems.

    Comments about IK Multimedia ARC 2 Advanced Room Correction Software Plug-In:

    If you want to resell your copy, you have to pay them a Jackson. Imagine if every record company or book publisher charged you again when you wanted to resell a CD or book. It is a real abuse of copyright.
