SOS Reviews ARC Studio

Sound On Sound: “It has the potential to make a big difference.”

Trust Sound On Sound to offer their expert and unbiased opinion. In May's issue, they review ARC Studio, IK's affordable hardware and software solution for improving any studio mixing room. The review covers the setup, the resulting room analysis, and the correction's positive impact on the listening experience.

In the end, Sound On Sound credits ARC Studio for doing exactly what it's intended to do by helping you create mixes that translate better. Here are some highlights and a link to the full review below:


  • Slick, easy-to-follow analysis procedure.
  • Offers both the flexibility of software and the convenience of hardware.
  • Much more affordable than other hardware options.

The ARC Studio package combines a simple but effective hardware unit with powerful, intuitive software tools.

If your monitors don't already have room analysis and correction features, it has the potential to make a big difference.

A second pop-up provides access to another ARC feature: speaker emulation.

It'll never make a cheap pair of monitors sound like a £100k mastering rig, but it can certainly be useful for checking mix translation.

The user experience is very slick. From analysing your room to choosing virtual monitors and custom responses, it's all completely intuitive and I never once felt the need to search for a manual.
