Default Introducing ARC System 3

Introducing ARC System 3

Bring a new dimension of acoustic correction to any studio.

https://www.ikmultimedia.com/images/...c3_news@2x.jpg

We are proud to announce a new generation of acoustic correction with ARC System 3. This new system offers an all-new 3D room analysis algorithm, easier setup, compatibility with more measurement microphones, and superior results.

Engineers and producers, now is the time to start mixing better, faster, and more confidently than ever before. By correcting poor room acoustics, ARC System 3 lets you trust the sound you hear as the most accurate representation of your mix. It combines an ultra-accurate MEMS measurement microphone, room analysis software, and a correction plug-in, all in a simple-to-use package that delivers amazing results.

Walls, furniture, and other objects reflect and absorb sound, changing the frequency balance and stereo imaging an engineer or producer hears in their studio. ARC System 3 detects and accounts for these issues by quickly and precisely measuring the sound of a room to generate a correction profile that can be loaded into the ARC plug-in for use in any DAW.

By measuring a room at three different heights around the listening position, IK’s award-winning VRM™ (Volumetric Response Modeling) technology creates a 3D snapshot of the room to identify problematic issues without over-processing the sound. The result is an incredibly natural-sounding correction that recreates the experience of working in a professionally tuned room.

ARC System 3 offers additional controls to fine-tune corrections for ideal performance in any room and setup:

Adjustable correction range - Choose to define limits to upper and lower correction ranges separately to preserve a monitor’s unique voicing or to correct a certain frequency range.

Variable resolution and smoothing - The correction filter’s resolution can be adjusted to use more or fewer frequency bands, for either surgical correction or a broader, smoother balance.

Two Phase Modes - Normal and Linear phase modes ensure precise stereo imaging.

Plus, you can now leave the car test in the past. ARC System 3 allows users to emulate all sorts of listening devices such as TVs, smartphones, car audio systems, and many popular studio monitors and "virtual systems". This guarantees a perfect sound translation across common listening devices.

With neverending ways to study your mix, ARC System 3 gives you useful tools including Peak, RMS, Loudness and dynamic range metering, a real-time spectrum analyzer, and so much more! Monitor your sound and speed up your workflow to make quick and effective changes.

ARC System 3 (software-only) is available now and the complete bundle including the MEMS microphone will be available in Q2, but can be pre-ordered now.

Price and availability

ARC System 3 software-only version is now available for $/€199.99.*

This looks like a great product. I just wish this was capable of of doing more than 2 channels. Do you have or are there plans to have a surround system in this?

I don't have specific news on a surround version but I will relay the request. Thank you.

Per the ARC 3 Specs page you need 10.10 or higher.

I did read that on the spec, but does it mean you guys don’t support 10.9.5 so if there is an issue you won’t help resolve or does it mean it just won’t install on 10.9.5 Thanks

It isn't supported below 10.10. You'd install at your own risk at anything below spec. I'd suggest installing the demo and trying it.

64-bit AAX, not 32. We don't do 32-bit plugins any more going forward.

All specs/requirements can be found on the ARC 3 Specs page at https://www.ikmultimedia.com/product...ex.php?p=specs
