IK Multimedia ARC Studio Room Correction Processor

Hear your mix, not your room! With the included measurement microphone, software, and standalone processor, ARC Studio corrects room issues -- transparently.

There's a reason all today's highest-end studio monitors are adding active room correction -- it supercharges their performance and ensures mixes translate flawlessly.

The IK Multimedia ARC Studio offers this same massive boost in performance and accuracy to every monitor in every studio.

Trust what you hear
Your room can have a big impact on how you hear your music. Room structure, dimensions, walls, and furniture can all change the frequency and timing balance of what you hear. This makes it really difficult to correctly balance your mixes without having audition them on lots of systems and spaces.

ARC Studio corrects these issues, ensuring your work translates properly everywhere. Using a stand-alone processor, this correction can be applied to any studio monitors in any studio without regard for DAW or operating system limitations. You'll mix faster and with less effort, and your work will translate better than ever.

How it works
Measure your space using the ARC 4 software and included MEMS microphone connected to any audio interface with a phantom-powered microphone input. The ARC software guides you step-by-step through a series of measurements in minutes, and can be repeated for multiple monitors or listening positions.

Installs in minutes
ARC Studio includes ARC 4 measurement software, a room analysis microphone, and stand-alone correction processor.

Plug the mic into your interface and you'll be guided through measuring acoustical spots within your listening position. read more IK's award-winning ARC technology uses this 3D snapshot to identify and completely correct all the problematic issues degrading your monitors' performance.

This correction profile is loaded into the ARC Studio processor, sitting invisibly between your interface and monitors to apply to all incoming signals. Acoustic issues disappear, unleashing your monitors' true performance.

Correct every studio
For pro studios, whether in-the-box or console-based, ARC Studio allows for a sonically transparent correction and custom-tuning for any monitoring setup from nearfields to mains, preserving the inherent system's sonic quality.

And for DAW-based studios, ARC Studio frees you from the hassle of inserting plug-ins on the master bus of your work and preserves zero-latency monitoring setups, plus allows you to listen to your preferred streaming service with acoustically corrected monitoring without messing around with system drivers.

You can create a profile for every configuration, listening position or even monitor pair. Whether you're in a makeshift studio or a world-class one, fine-tuning your monitoring to your taste has never been easier and has never sounded so good.

Includes monitor emulations
ARC Studio also includes a monitor emulations function that turns your monitor system into iconic studio monitors and popular hi-fi speakers and mobile devices, with breathtakingly true-to-life results by accurately reproducing the frequency and phase response of the originals.

With over 20 profiles included, a single pair of monitors now lets you test your mix on different reference systems quickly, without ever having to head to your car!

I have a humble semi pro studio and it's in a little two bdr crap shack but it's home! I had to set up in a odd shaped small room and bass frequencies was killing my mixing and the way I heard things in my listening position nothing related, I couldn't afford to treat my dining room in my little apartment but I had to put up some foam to keep down early reflections. Not real studio foam but it did what I intended it to do but w/o bass traps or absorbing panels was not gonna happen even if I built em I couldn't just screw em to a wall I gotta move someday! Then I seen a bunch of videos for IK, ARC Studio and I thought I'd give it a try. It came in less than 24 hrs from zZounds hooked it up with out to many hiccups loaded the arc 4 analyzing software, no problems easy enough.now my expectations were not to positive till I played some songs I recorded years ago and I remixed with the arc system and to say I was blown away is an understatement! My bass signal at around 50-100 Hz was sucking all my mids and high energy in my studio and to compensate my mixes I was cranking up but my mixes sucked, well it took care of my room problems with ease and did all the heavy lifting! My mixes had more perceived Loudness w/o cranking my monitors or excessive compression make up gain my system not only sounds 100% better but just listening to music over streaming or YouTube was blowing my mind! My neighbors thought I got a bigger monitor system or got more wattage but it improved my overall signals read more significantly! It's the best investment of $300 buck into my humble studio I've ever made highly recommend if you can't record in a high end treated space its studio magic in a box literally!!
