Description & Specs

Mix faster and more confidently than ever

The new ARC System 3 combines an advanced room analysis software and correction plug-in to improve the accuracy of your monitoring in any room.  With faster, easier calibration, breathtaking new correction algorithm and useful new GUI, ARC 3 lets you create audio that translates to any system effortlessly.

Trust what you hear
Walls and furniture reflect and absorb sound, affecting what you hear and causing your mix to fall apart in other spaces. ARC System detects these issues, measuring the sound of your room and generating a correction profile to load into the ARC plug-in for your DAW. When you can trust what you’re hearing, you’ll mix faster and with less effort, and your work will translate better than ever.

An all-new listening experience
ARC 3 uses a ground-breaking new analysis algorithm that delivers results you can’t find elsewhere. By measuring your room across a 3D space, IK’s award-winning VRM™ technology identifies problematic issues without over-processing the sound. The result is an incredibly natural-sounding correction like you’ve never heard.
 
Measure quickly and easily
Just connect a measurement mic to your interface and launch the step-by-step room analysis software. You’ll be guided through a series of measurements across your listening position, and with ARC’s flexible placement options you’ll be done in less than 10 minutes.

New microphone options
ARC System now lets you use generic measurement microphones, and even load a mic calibration file for superior accuracy.  So if you already own an RTA or measurement mic, you can get started instantly!

Instantly apply correction
Once you’ve generated your profiles, open your DAW and insert ARC 3 across the master bus. ARC applies a precise correction filter to compensate for your room’s acoustics with a new level of accuracy. 

Now you can work confident you’re hearing exactly what was recorded, and that your work with translate to other rooms and systems better than ever. 

Deep control over key parameters
Every room and setup is different, and ARC 3 gives you the controls to fine-tune your correction for ideal performance anywhere:
  • Adjustable correction range 
  • Variable resolution / smoothing
  • Two phase modes

Check your mix right from your desk

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
