IK Multimedia announced their ARC software Room Correction System. Coming with measurement mic, software app and plug-in, it takes you through the procedure to measure you room with the provided microphone and standalone application, create a custom setting, then apply it to the plug-in component, which sits across your master or monitor output, correcting the audio stream in real-time and compensating for any irregularities in your room. When it comes to the final print for mixdown or stems etc, bypass the effect, and you have the final mix. From what I heard, the results were quite impressive - although the show floor is not an ideal listening environment. Latency is reported at around 1-2ms so it shouldn't be too problematic. ARC System includes:
  • 1) Easy to use, step-by-step, room measurement software for Mac/PC
  • 2) VST, RTAS, AU correction plug-in for Mac/PC most popular DAWs (such as Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic, Sonar, Live, etc.)
  • 3) Professional measurement microphone
