Product Description

If you said yes, you're either fooling yourself or just foolish. With the exception of a slim few multi-million dollar control rooms on Earth, no one can say yes with a straight face. Reflections, rooms dimensions, room modes - these are the enemy. Acoustic treatment is always key, but even with great treatment, there's more to tuning your room. So how can you keep these funky frequency phenomena from fouling up your sound? Check out IK Multimedia's ARC (Advanced Room Correction) software. This is one of the coolest and most effective solutions for imperfect acoustics. ARC acts as a plug-in in almost any DAW software. You use a special measurement microphone and analysis software (both included) to figure out which frequencies are unnaturally boosted or cut in your room, and the ARC plug-in simply corrects for these problems. ARC is really simple to use and incredibly effective - a real must-have if you're at all serious about your music.

For years I couldn't get the right sound out of my recording studio. I finally equipped it with the ARC system and the sound coming out of my speakers now is crystal-clear. I can make adjustments to my sound while hearing exactly what the final CD will sound like. No more complaints from my clients. When you don't have hundreds of thousands of dollars to create the perfect listening environment, ARC is the solution.

To be honest, I was only interested in the ARC software, so I probably would'nt have bought it wasnt for Amazon offering a 3 in one package of software that was even cheaper than buying the standalone ARC software alone from most other vendors.

The ARC software is AMAZING!!!!

I've been trying to mix my own music for years and always had a problem getting levels even remotely close to what they should be. So I finally got a dedicated room set up for my studio and still mixes were coming out bad.

Then I read about this software and thought maybe I could just use this instead of treating the room with absorbers. But after ordering this I decided to do some sort of room acoustical treatment. And I wanted to do it before I took measurements with this software.

My mixes are coming out closer to perfect now, after about 10 years of muddy and bassy mixes.

I went ahead and did the 32 measurements. I only measured for one spot as I am the only person in the room mixing at this point. Probably took about an hour. It wasn't too painful.

Just turning this plug-in on and off I hear a HUGE different! When it is off the mix sounds much more bassy and boomy. When I turn this on I can hear the mix much clearer with a clean and punchy bass.

My room shape is awkward and large so it was hard to do too much acoustical treatment. Plus the room I am using will only be temporary (about a year or so). So I acoustically treated as much as I could and this software did the rest. The glue if you will.

And the best part is if you ever decide to move your studio you can take this with you and do another measurement.

I have been having issues with mixes for years. It is very hard to get a good even mix when your studio is not tuned. I used this item to help me tune my room. The only setback is that after your run the diagnostics, it does not immediately show you a chart of the frequency response. Only when you load the saved file in your DAW does it show you what the frequency response was in your room. So after going back and forth and making adjustments several times, I was able to tune my room eliminating the need to load the plug in and correct my sound. If only it had a setting during the diagnostics to help you do this with out all the back and forth, it would be perfect. Regardless, it is still a great tool for the home studio.
