Sunrise, FL (August 7, 2017)—IK Multimedia is shipping its Advanced Room Correction System (ARC System 2.5) with MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) omnidirectional condenser measurement microphone, pairing measurement software with an audio correction plug-in for Mac/PC DAWs. Priced at $199, the ARC System 2.5 features patented Audyssey MultEQ XT32 technology for improved accuracy in monitoring.
According to IK Multimedia, the ARC System 2.5 works by measuring the room in multiple positions, “producing an accurate representation of its acoustic response then [generating] a correction filter that makes the response linear. This allows users to mix and compose in an environment capable of an exact representation of the music and audio being produced, regardless of the acoustic characteristics of the room.”
Using IK’s Italian-made condenser measurement microphone, the system offers a recreated acoustic response at an accuracy of +/- 0.5 dB.
Users that have previously purchased any IK product with a minimum value of $99.99 are offered a crossgrade price of $149.99 for the ARC System 2.5. Current ARC 2 users can upgrade to software version 2.5 free of charge (Mac/PC); ARC 1 and ARC TDM users can upgrade their software for $49.99. The MEMS measurement microphone can be purchased separately for $69.99 by previous ARC users.
