    ARC System 2.5 with MEMS microphone is the first acoustic correction system that combines a super accurate MEMS measurement microphone, measurement software AND a correction plug-in to greatly improve the audio monitoring accuracy of speakers in any studio or room listening environment in an elegant, portable, affordable, easy to use and extremely professional solution.

     

    New in Version 2.5

    New MEMS microphone included:

  • Ultra-light and durable
  • Stable over time: MEMS is not subject to the typical frequency response changes over time of ordinary condenser mics
  • Much more resistant to humidity and temperature variations
  • Precision crafted in Italy
  •  

    A new professional MEMS microphone

    ARC System 2.5 now includes a brand new, ultra-precise MEMS measurement microphone that perfectly works in synergy with ARC’s correction software (previous ARC mic models will be supported.) The microphone is built around an omnidirectional, high precision MEMS capsule that ensures maximum response accuracy and stability over time.

    In contrast to standard condenser measurement microphones, which are potentially subject to subtle frequency response variations over time, MEMS technology is far more stable.

    Thanks to the manufacturing process behind them, MEMS microphones boast extreme resistance to humidity and temperature variations as well as increased durability. This means that they are much more forgiving to “professional abuse” and you can carry them around without worrying about damaging them. Also, all microphones units that are manufactured following this procedure, share the same degree of accuracy with near-zero variation in terms of final performance from unit to unit.

    As a result, all measurement processes will always be spot on, repeatable and reliable even after longer periods of time.

    Did you know? The ARC System 2.5 MEMS microphone makes for a great additional OMNI pattern recording tool you can add to your mic arsenal! Use it to capture the natural ambience of a studio/room while recording vocals, guitars and other acoustic instruments.

     

    Trust your ears

    ARC simply takes your room “out of the mix.” Now you can explore your creativity and mix with confidence.

    ARC employs Audyssey MultEQ® XT32 patented technology to improve your monitoring system ensuring that what you hear is not being affected by problems caused by room acoustics.

    Near field monitor systems generally used in studio applications are designed to deliver sound without distortion or coloration; however, when they are placed in a room, the surrounding walls, ceiling, furniture, and other objects reflect and absorb sounds, creating complex artifacts specific to that room that ultimately cause the monitors to lose the accuracy they have been designed for in the first place. As a result, you end up hearing more of the room’s sound, than the music being reproduced.

     

    A break-through affordable solution for acoustic room correction

    Traditionally studio acoustics can be improved with acoustic treatments – but these are generally very expensive and require professional installation – which is often not practical in many of today's home and project studios. Other types of electronic correction systems use some form of equalization that works only on the frequency response of the room but worsen the phase response of the audio material. ARC System neatly solves all these problems with a unique and innovative DAW (Digital Audio Workstation,) based solution that works both in the frequency and time domain and is not affected by any of the drawbacks of other types of correction systems.

    ARC is designed to provide everything you need to turn any room into a place where serious music production happens. Now you can listen and mix with utmost confidence, knowing that what you hear is what is actually there. All you have to do to is plug the microphone in and follow a few simple steps. No rocket science involved. 

     

    Do you really need ARC if your room is already treated?

    With ARC you can improve the acoustics of ANY room. An untreated room will experience a dramatic improvement – but also treated rooms will sound MUCH better depending on the quality of the existing treatment. From amateur bedroom studios to the most professional high-end treated rooms, ARC will make an improvement in your monitoring environment.
