ARC System (Advanced Room Correction System) is a combination of a professionally calibrated measurement microphone, a measuring software application and a multi-platform plug-in that can be integrated with any DAW-based studio, capable of correcting the distortion caused by room acoustics and able to improve how a studio will sound forever.

ARC will improve any kind of monitor type in any room, at any level of quality, within any type of mixing environment. Not only will it improve the home studio, but even the most highly treated mixing rooms will benefit from ARC system using Audyssey's MultEQ technology. ARC features Audyssey MultEQ, which corrects for both frequency and phase response, not only for the engineer's 'sweet spot', but also for multiple points in the room. This solves many of the problems that have plagued room correction EQ systems since their inception. Other EQ systems only correct for frequency domain problems, which leaves the time domain to cause phase distortion and smearing. When you experience ARC's Advanced Room Correction System, the perspective of what you are recording, mixing or mastering becomes immediately clear and reliable; so you can finally trust the sound of your studio.

ARC System will correct acoustic problems for any DAW-based studio, dramatically improving the clarity, stereo imaging and frequency response, for faster, more reliable mixing.

ARC your room and the audible results will be:

  • Low-end alterations, typically added by small rooms, are removed with better low frequency control.
  • More consistent frequency response across the entire range.
  • Tonal balance is restored, allowing for more accurate mixes.

ARC your room and the following advantages will be achieved:

  • Room defects will no longer capture your attention, allowing you to focus solely on the music and reducing ear fatigue.
  • Work on mixes faster because you're sure of what you're hearing.
  • Achieve greater consistency on your music productions.
  • Achieve mixes that translate better to the outside world.

ARC provides a convenient, unique, and easy-to-use mobile correction solution for the traveling professional engineer and musician. You can conveniently bring ARC system with you and quickly measure and correct any studio environment, so you can mix and produce comfortably in any situation. The step-by-step setup measurement wizard will have you up and running in minutes.

Today I upgraded to the new ARC 2. After installation, I am now getting intermittent bursts of white noise. Can someone help me with this?

Jamesky: are you by any chance using an audio (FLAC, etc.) player with VST capability in DEMO mode? Some (e.g. DDMF) will do that (only in demo mode) until you register them.

Hi there, I'm having the same problem. It was working fine for a week or so, then tonight it started. Out of the blue. Did you have any luck solving this issue?

I solved (created) my own problem. While running a profile for my studio, somehow the song file I was using in Studio One Pro got corrupted. The white intermittent noise I was hearing was in the song file I was mixing in two or three places. After finally realizing the "intermittent" noise was occurring in the same places, I zoomed in on the file and, sure enough, there was the white noise distortion. I deleted that file and imported the original virgin copy again. How crazy is that? Anyway, the new ARC 2 is a great upgrade. If you are having white noise problems, check the file you are working with. I can't explain it but it may have had something to do with having the recording program open while I ran the ARC 2 profile.
