"The newest incarnation with the MEMS mic continues to impress me"

21 December 2017

Sound on Sound has taken a close look at ARC System 2.5, courtesy of expert studio engineer Dennis J Wilkins. Already impressed with the original version, he was even happier when he tested out the new 2.5 release. Here are some of his key comments:

"The worst peak in my treated room was +1OdB at 50Hz, and there were several other peaks and dips in the 3 to 6 dB range. After correction, the room appears flat at the listening position within about 1dB from 30Hz to 20kHz."

"The new MEMS mic provides an extremely flat response."

"Target Curves are a useful feature, and not only enable you to tailor the response to suit your tastes, but also provide a Virtual Monitoring section that allows you to hear your mix as it might sound on lower-fidelity devices such as an LCD TV, a car audio system, a small radio and so on."

"The improvement in clarity, especially in the lower few octaves, impressed me four years ago when I first tried ARC 2, and the newest incarnation with the MEMS mic continues to impress me."

"As with the earlier versions, ARC System 2.5 can significantly improve a moderately good room and make a well-controlled room sound amazing."

Dennis's final verdict is:

"IK's room correction system continues to evolve, and can effectively 'clean up' the sound of any room."

Key Plusses
Version 2.5 software is free to anyone with version 2.x and works with either previous ARC mic
+ New MEMS mic is reasonably priced, can be used for other studio recording activities, and provides very precise measurements when used with ARC 2.5
+ Virtual monitoring mode can be useful to audition mixes as they might sound on boomboxes and other other modest sound systems
