Picture this. A small box the size of a stomp box that would be placed between your soundcard output and your powered monitors. That box would also have a USB to plug into your computer and a jack for power supply. Inside the box would be a hardware version of the ARC plugin that would have settings sent to it from your ARC enabled computer. With a box like this you would never need to use the software plugin only the ARC measurement software. I don't know about you guys but everything musical I do is through my computer. I have a nice tube amp that never gets played because I prefer my AXE FX through my powered monitors. The only problem is that in order to setup a room corrected sound on my AXE FX I have to open my DAW and play through ARC which causes a slight bit of latency. With a setup like this, everything played through the computer would be room corrected. I would gladly pay $100 to $200 for something like this. I love my new ARC 2.5 but this would make it even better.

I agree. An engineer friend of mine and I have been going round and round about this. If I eq the room for mixing, I want to also listen back in an eq'd room. There are already pink noise generators that help to eq your room. They don't cost much more than what you're suggesting. I think there needs to be a software solution. I suggest that IK create a desktop ARC 2.5 application update which allows you to play your mix or master (or any music for that matter) through your ARC 2.5 eq'd speakers.

Yes having just recently bought the ARC system I think that IK Media have missed a trick in not supplying a desktop application that can have all the audio output from the computer routed through it. I need to be able to use the ARC EQ on many different pieces of multimedia software's audio output ie. DAW, NLE video edit, audio restoration, media players etc. :x They do provide an ASIO driver for the mic input side so I would have thought that it shouldn't take much to make an ASIO output driver to allow a desktop app to work. At the moment I very rarely use it since it is such a pain to set up third party apps and VAC links to do this.
