IK Multimedia ARC Studio

High-end digital room acoustic correction processor

High-definition monitoring for all
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. ARC Studio offers this same massive boost in performance and accuracy to every monitor in every studio.
Dramatically improve your mixing accuracy
Your room has a big impact on how you hear your music. The size, shape, materials, and furniture all work to distort the frequency and stereo balance of your monitors, degrading your sound. ARC Studio analyzes and corrects these issues in minutes. Your music snaps into focus, with more controlled low-end, tighter transients and pinpoint stereo imaging. It’s like an instant upgrade to your monitors. And when you can trust what you hear, you’ll mix faster and more confidently than ever.
Installs in minutes
ARC Studio combines the new ARC 4 measurement software, 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. 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!
