Room Correction System

Combining the use of a microphone, measurement software, and a correction plug-in, the ARC 2 system provides an advance solution to room acoustic problems for any DAW based studio. Featuring Audyssey MultiEQ XT32 technology, the system can improve the acoustics of any home and project studio, whilst also being able to make minor corrections to high acoustic treated studios. The ARC 2 system works in both the frequency and time domains, resulting in improving the accuracy of monitoring systems.

Incredible Correction Capabilities

The ARC 2 System offers incredible corrections to improve the acoustics of your room. The software removes low-end alterations to provide more control over the low frequencies, with a resolution ranging form 40Hz down to 10Hz. IK Multimedia’s ARC 2 offers a more consistent frequency response across the entire spectrum with a restored tonal balances for accurate mixes. The system also flattens the low end response in uneven rooms. The ARC 2 can also improve the correction of left and right speakers, enhancing the stereo image focus when working with elements that are panned dead centre.

Correction in 2 Steps

In order to correct your room’s acoustics, you only need to do 2 simple, and easy steps. Firstly you measure your rooms acoustics specified places with the measurement microphone and software. This is then given to the systems plug-in so it can accurately correct you entire room. The next step is then to apply the information gathered to your music using the included plug-in. This will allow you to mix and master your track in an accurate monitoring environment, allowing you music to sound at its best across multiple platforms.

Software, Plug-In, and Microphone

Included in the ARC 2 system are three things that help you correct your room’s acoustics. The measurement software provides a step-by-step guide on how to measure your room and then gathers all the information need to create the perfect correction. All the measurements that are taken are saved so they can be opened on the ARC plug-in. The Microphone is a calibrated and omnidirectional mic that offers transparent colourless, ultra-linear characteristics. Not only can you use the mic to capture the measurements needed for the ARC system, but it can also be used to capture acoustic instruments for you recording. Finally the correction software is used to apply the correction to your music.

Audyssey MultiEQ XT32 Technology

IK Multimedia’s ARC System 2 uses the Audyssey MultiEQ XT32 technology to capture acoustical information at multiple locations in a listening area in both time and frequency domains. Using sophisticated clustering algorithms to combine the information to ensure that the acoustic problems are accurately analysed to result in a clear, well balanced sound for your studio.
