Measurement software upgrade ONLY
Review: The IK Multimedia ARC System 2 Advanced Room Correction System Software is the first acoustic correction system that combines a measurement software and a correction plug-in for most popular DAWs to improve the acoustics and sonic reliability of your studio.
The ARC works by measuring your room using the included measurement microphone and measurement software and then generates an algorithm to provide a correction of your room's acoustic problems that you can apply to your mix using the included plug-in. You can record and mix with confidence knowing that what you hear from your speakers is a faithful representation of how your music will translate to the outside world.
The ARC uses Audyssey MultEQ XT32 patented technology to improve your monitoring system so what you hear is not affected by distortions caused by room acoustics. The ARC 2 can improve the acoustics of any room. An untreated room will experience a dramatic improvement, but also treated rooms will sound better depending on the quality of the existing treatment. Many of the ARC 2 improvements make it more effective in a wide spectrum of applications i from amateur bedroom studios to the most high-end professionally treated studios.

Acoustic correction system in a plug-in, contains 1 x measurement microphone, 1 x meaturement suftware + 1 x correction plug-in
Review: The ARC System 2 (Advanced Room Correction) is the sequel of the first and only acoustic correction system that combines a measurement microphone, measurement software and a correction plug-in to improve the sound reliability and acoustics of your studio in an elegant, low-cost portable solution.
The ARC uses Audyssey MultEQ XT32 patented technology to improve your monitoring system so what you hear is not affected by distortions caused by room acoustics. Near field monitor systems used in studio applications are designed to deliver sound without distortion or coloration. However when they are placed in a room, surrounding walls, ceiling, furniture, and other objects reflect and absorb sounds, creating complex distortions specific to that room. This ultimately causes them to lose the accuracy they have been designed for, and you end up hearing more of the sound of the room, than the music actually being produced.
Traditionally studio acoustics can be improved using acoustic treatments, but these are generally very expensive and require professional installations, which is often not practical in many of today's home and project studio. 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 what you are hearing. The ARC System 2 solves all these problems elegantly, with a unique, innovative DAW-based solution that works both in the frequency/time domain and is not affected by any of the drawbacks of other type of correction systems.
