Skeptical until I heard it
by Jackie Baker from Tifton, GAWorth every penny and then some. My only hesitance is it's lack of 64 bit plugin at the time I bought it. I bought j-bridge and wrapped it and voila! Now, this great plugin doesn't rob my CPU. You... read more [+] won't believe how it makes your mixes translate. It took ALL of the guess work out of it. No more checking in the car. I have total confidence in my mixes now. close [-]

The best purchase I could have made
by Derrick Horne from Anywhere at any tmeAfter years of having room issues during mixing, I bought ARC. Once set up, you WILL notice more imaging and tighter response (especially low end) in your mixes. I have been fortunate to mix in a lot ... read more [+]of great rooms over a long career but now I feel best when mixing at home. Right now, I'm sounding like a champ for my clients. I cannot stress this enough. BUY THIS PLUGIN. It will change your entire path as a mixer. Also, since I work out of the country and in various stateside locales I don't have to fear monitor choices anymore. I just take the measurement mic, run the setup, and BOOM!!! I can trust what I'm hearing and do final tweaks at home if needed. GET IT!!!! close [-]

Worth It's Weight In Gold...Maybe Even Platinum
by Dontae Dynamite from Richmond, VAI will say first and foremost that there is no replacement for a properly acoustical treated room. But for those of us who can't quite get it right, this is the next best thing as far a convenience go... read more [+]es. My mixes went from OK to impressive. Not because my skill level changed but because I could actually hear what was really going on in my mixes.

This is not another gimmick or useless plug-in. This has a real purpose in my studio and I recommend that you get it too. If you don't I will continue to have people say my mixes sound better than yours..LOL! close [-]
Worth every penny...
by Matthew King from NW Arkansas USAOK, so I get the whole "make the room disappear" technique with room correction EQ and processing from my days in high-end home theaters. I bought ARC with a pair of JBL LSR2328 monitors. While they... read more [+] aren't as accurate as Focals or Genelecs out of the box, I was confident that ARC can make them sound just as accurate. After I got everything hooked up and went through the minimum 12-point analysis, I was amazed at the difference. Alone the LSRs were very boomy in the upper bass and the highs were very sharp (not crisp, almost piercing). I wish I could post a picture of the measurement and correction response, it would make anyone a believer. Many props to my longtime engineer and friend Mike Baldonado (ext. 1315) for taking such good care of me. close [-]

Every studio still needs great monitors along with proper acoustical treatment. But I'm amazed at what the ARC System can do to further compensate for your room's acoustics so that you can hear your mix the way it really sounds! A great solution for all studios!
