IK Multimedia ARC 2
IK Multimedia and Audyssey announced Version 2 of ARC - Advanced Room Correction System - for Mac/PC DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations).
ARC is an acoustic correction system that combines a measurement microphone, measurement software and a correction plug-in for DAWs.
ARC works by measuring your room using the included measurement microphone and 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.
Audyssey's MultEQ XT32 is included in this new version of ARC.
MultEQ XT32 gives the new ARC 2 an higher-resolution EQ adjustment - especially in the extreme low frequencies - a combined L/R correction for control room optimization and customizable target curves. These new features are packaged in a new interface featuring a new Monitor Control panel interface.
ARC 2 New Features
- Redesigned interface
- 4X greater resolution designed to improve low-end response
- Natural sound in the midrange and high frequencies
- New combined L/R correction option designed to maintain focus in symmetrical control rooms
- New customizable target curves now can match engineers' personal tonal tastes
- New "Alt References" templates mimic the sound of consumer listening devices like car systems, speaker boxes, etc. allowing the engineer to test how mixes translate on different systems
- New Monitor Control panel interface
- Measurements can be saved and used for multiple correction set-ups
