IK Multimedia has announced the availability of the new ARC System 1.1 software update, which they tell us brings new features and functionality to provide the highest level of acoustic correction and sonic accuracy for your monitoring environment. Here's the IK press release with all the details...
ARC System delivers the most advanced, accurate solution for acoustical problems for any DAW-based studio. And now, with version 1.1, ARC delivers enhancements based on the requests of studio users around the world.
The update offers the following changes and enhancements:
Full Range Bass Correction: It is now possible to disable the Automatic Bass Roll off point detection feature, allowing ARC's correction to be applied to the entire frequency spectrum, down to 20Hz. In rooms with especially odd low frequency issues, correcting the entire spectrum gives users a more accurate flat response and corrected listening environment. Maximum boosting/correction applied at the low end is never more than 9 dB, thus protecting the speakers from excessive boost. With this feature, users now have more options for room correction, as well as the ability to tune their speakers with more power than ever before.
About the ARC Room Correction System:
ARC System delivers the most advanced solution to acoustical problems for any DAW-based studio. Combining a professionally calibrated microphone, standalone software that captures sound information and calculates proper room correction, and a multi-platform plug-in: this technology will improve how your studio sounds forever.
ARC features the revolutionary Audyssey MultEQÂ® technology, which measures acoustical information throughout the listening area in your studio. It then combines this information to provide an accurate representation of the room's acoustical problems. The equalization solution then corrects for both time and frequency response problems more effectively and efficiently than any other room correction EQ on the market. The result is a clear and reliable representation of your mix. Regardless of the acoustical issues in your studio, what you are recording, mixing or mastering becomes immediately clear and reliable, and your studio sound will improve forever.
