Excellent alternative to acoustic treatment
IbanLoL, 16.10.2017
Not wishing to spend several k¤ in acoustic treatment of my home studio (double walls, false ceiling, floating floor, bass traps resonators, etc etc) I opted for the alternative ARC system, having already heard praise . Result: bluffed!

Admittedly, it does not correct the acoustic problems of a room, either ... But makes the position (s) listening really balanced. The sound becomes full, and we hear a lot more details. This is an excellent system that calibrates speakers to make better choices.

The only downside is that the measurement positions to be done are not very well described, and you have to go on the internet to look for the manual. It deserves a little clarity but it's really to look for the little beast. The plugin also deserves a stand-alone application so you can listen to all the PC sound outside of a DAW (music, videos, etc.), but there is a possible tinkering with Virtual Audio Cable and a host application for VST.

In this budget, the value for money is unbeatable in my opinion to improve its listening.

Very satisfied.

Help with abh r problems
Th.P., 04.03.2018
To make it short: I am satisfied. The software does what it should and has noticeably improved my listening situation. Of course, the system can not do magic. But in a lousy environment like mine - better than nothing.

The system requires at least 7 measurements, whereby the effective range of the improvement itself can be selected.
First of all, I stuck a measuring scheme on the floor with Malerkrepp. Then the software started and the measuring micro-level matched to the software. Do not worry - you will certainly be guided by the program. And then it started.

After a total of 14 measurements, I had the corrections calculated. The system creates a file, which can then be imported into the recording software - with me a Cubase Pro 9.5.
So opened Cubase and integrated the created ARC correction file in the ControlRoom in the post exit. Then open the file and made another height reduction.
That's it - and the sound?

Within the range given by me a significant improvement. Clear highs, precise bass and nearly balanced frequency response.
Oh yes, I would still have a point of criticism. I did not have the German voice guidance but I can do it with school English as well.
