Trust what you hear
A room can have a big impact on how you hear your music. Walls, furniture, and other objects reflect and absorb sound, creating complex artifacts that change the frequency balance and stereo imaging, and can cause your carefully balanced mix to fall apart in other spaces.
With ARC System, you can detect and account for these issues without expensive room treatment. ARC precisely measures the sound of your room in moments, then generates a correction profile you can load into the ARC plug-in for your DAW to ensure what you’re hearing is how your music really sounds.
You’ll mix faster and with less effort, and your work will translate better than ever.
An all-new listening experience
ARC 3 uses a ground-breaking new analysis and correction algorithm that delivers results you can’t find in other digital room correction systems. By measuring your room across a 3D space around the listening position, IK’s award-winning VRM™ (Volumetric Response Modeling) technology creates a 3D snapshot of your room, identifying problematic issues without over-processing the sound.
The result is an incredibly natural-sounding correction like you’ve never heard. ARC 3 recreates the feeling of working in a properly-tuned room, without sounding “corrected.”
Measure quickly and precisely
Just connect a measurement mic to your interface and launch the step-by-step room analysis software. You’ll be guided through a series of measurements across your listening position, and with ARC’s flexible placement options you’ll be done in less than 10 minutes.
Create measurements of multiple monitors and listening positions, so you can virtually adjust the sweet spot for clients or different setups.
