    Very Accurate and precise!!

    I purchased this a few years back, and it definitely changed the way I listen to music! I think the only drawback with this technology is the fact that it is an actual plugin that has to be attached to a master bus in order to work correctly. I think this thing would be an even better application if the measurements that you took were "blanketed" throughout the entire operating system. Meaning, if you're on Youtube, you can also hear the impact of the measurements. This would allow the user to be immersed in the corrected sound signature. Also the instructions for this thing are not as clear as one would hope, and phone support from IK is totally non-existent (Message boards are great though)

    Lastly,Even though this system will attempt to correct the errors in your room, i've found that placing acoustics at the 1st points of reflection, as well as installing bass traps greatly increases the accuracy of this unit, and also allows the A/B effect not to be as drastic when you turn the plugin off prior to mix down. Let's be perfectly clear....Investing in this system will give ANYONE an edge over the competition!

    I've treated my room the best that I could and found that it really becomes a frustrating guessing game after your room has reached a certain level. Jeff Greene suggested the Arc2 as the finishing touch. I was skeptical of the price and that this may be a bit gimmicky. I have a decent rig, but this system now gives me the most accurate sound possible. I'm hearing clicks and pops that I never heard before. As a hobbyist, I will have no problem remixing and mastering the music that I've done so far. Everything translates on other systems including my car perfectly!!!!

    ARC 2 Upgrade

    If you look for a tool making your production process easier - here it is. to know how your music really sounds on your nearfields - get the arc2. the room correction is a must have - without spending tons of money. it's really working and it's a part of my daily work.

    Every Studio Should Have This Regardless!

    I recently moved to my new space and did not have time to do all the treatments to the room. I owned ARC 1 and stumbled onto it. Decided to upgrade to ARC 2 and it works great! No downtime for me! Keeps me mixing if only Pro Tools 10 worked hehe! It would be a perfect world.
