Description: The fastest and most convenient mix is now available to you.
The ARC System 3 consists of an ultra-precise measuring microphone, analytical software and a correction plug-in. The system is designed to improve the accuracy of monitoring in any room. The system simplifies the job and allows you to hear all the sound details of the material with confidence.
ARC 3 has everything you need to focus on the music and ensure that it is correctly transmitted on any speaker system: a simple and clear calibration process, a new adjustment algorithm and an improved graphical interface.
Trust your ears – Rooms have a huge impact on how the music sounds. Walls, furniture, and other objects reflect and absorb sound in different ways, creating complex distortions that alter the frequency balance and stereo field. That is why a mix that sounded good in one room may fall apart in another.
The ARC system allows you to identify and correct these problems without costly acoustic room processing. ARC accurately measures the sound of your room and creates a correction profile that is loaded into the ARC plugin for DAW. After that, you will hear how your music actually sounds.
You will notice that mixing will require less power, and its results will sound much better on other speakers.
New listening experience – ARC 3 uses innovative analysis and adjustment algorithms. They provide results that cannot be achieved with other digital correction systems. The award-winning VRM ™ technology (Volumetric Response Modeling, Eng. “Volumetric response modeling”) involves the creation of a three-dimensional picture of the room at the location of the listener. The resulting image is then used to identify and eliminate acoustics problems with a minimal amount of processing.
The result is an incredibly natural correction. ARC 3 recreates the feeling of working in a properly configured room, while the correction remains invisible.
Measure fast and accurately – Just plug in your microphone to the interface and run the program for step-by-step setup. You will conduct a series of measurements at the listening point; The flexibility of microphone placement options in ARC allows you to complete this task in less than 10 minutes.
You can take measurements for several pairs of speakers and listening points to organize virtual tuning of a separate listening point for clients or if you want to have several settings.
Choose a microphone yourself – The ARC 3 system comes with a professional microelectromechanical (MEMS) microphone, which is designed for accurate acoustic measurements. But you can use any conventional measuring microphone and even upload your own calibration file to increase accuracy.
Apply corrections instantly – After creating the profiles, launch DAW and insert the ARC 3 plug-in on the master bus. ARC will apply the adjustment profile, compensating for the acoustic flaws of the room with the highest accuracy.
Now you can hear music without the influence of room acoustics. You can be sure that you hear everything exactly as it was recorded; your work will be transferred to other rooms and rooms much more accurately than before.
