The IK Multimedia ARC 4 is a cutting-edge solution for achieving accurate audio monitoring in any room.

Combining an ultra-precise measurement microphone, advanced analysis software, and a powerful correction plug-in, ARC 4 empowers you to produce mixes that sound great on any system. Its enhanced calibration process, innovative algorithm, and profile management on ARC Studio hardware make it a game-changer for audio professionals.

Key Features

  • Comprehensive Room Correction: ARC 4's system includes a high-quality measurement microphone, sophisticated analysis software, and a correction plug-in, ensuring comprehensive room correction that dramatically improves frequency balance and stereo imaging.
  • Enhanced Calibration Process: The streamlined calibration process offers both a 21-point detailed measurement and a quicker 7-point option. The 21-point measurement is perfect for permanent setups, while the 7-point measurement is ideal for mobile or temporary installations, taking less than a minute to complete.
  • Natural Sounding Algorithm: Utilizing a new, natural-sounding analysis and correction algorithm, ARC 4 leverages IK Multimedia’s VRM™ (Volumetric Response Modeling) technology. This technology captures a 3D snapshot of your room, delivering a correction that maintains the integrity of your original sound without over-processing.
  • Versatile and Flexible Use: With the ability to handle multiple monitors and listening positions, ARC 4 offers unparalleled flexibility. The room analysis software guides you through the process, ensuring precise measurements and optimal corrections.
  • Virtual Monitoring Capability: ARC 4's virtual monitoring feature emulates the sound of common listening devices, allowing you to ensure your mixes will translate well across various playback systems.
