IK Multimedia’s ARC System 3 bundle with MEMS Mic for 3D Acoustic Calibration

 IK Multimedia’s ARC System 3 is the third generation of its innovative acoustic improvement system that allows producers and engineers to mix better, faster, and more assuredly. ARC System 3 enhances the audio monitoring accuracy of studios by correcting poor room acoustics, warranting mixes will translate better on other playback systems.

Now available as a complete bundle including a MEMS measurement mic (in addition to a software-only version), it combines room analysis software, an ultra-accurate measurement microphone, and a correction plug-in, all in a simple-to-use package with a step-by-step process that delivers professional results.

ARC System 3 offers an all-new analysis algorithm that measures acoustics at three different heights to deliver a natural, unprocessed sound and superior accuracy; a streamlined measurement process for quicker, more accurate calibration; advanced controls and a re-sizeable retina display GUI for superior workflow; and the ability to use third party measurement mics for additional flexibility.

An all-new listening experience
ARC System3 uses a new room analysis and correction algorithm delivering results that can’t be found elsewhere. 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 process takes less than 10 minutes, and the result is an incredibly natural-sounding correction that recreates the experience of working in a properly tuned room. 

Additional features 

  • Deep controls to fine-tune corrections: Adjustable correction range; variable resolution and smoothing; two Phase modes (Natural and Linear)
  • Custom response curves that emulate devices like TVs, smartphones and car audio systems, letting users virtually audition their work to ensure sound translates perfectly
  • At-a-glance metering tools: Peak, RMS, loudness and dynamic range

All in all, ARC System 3 delivers a natural listening experience that makes any existing studio sound like a well-treated room rather than a “corrected” room – without expensive acoustic treatments. This ensures that music is heard the way it truly sounds, letting users work faster and more effortlessly to create mixes that will translate better across all systems everywhere.
