ARC 2 Catalina support - when?

Postby advert » Tue Dec 24, 2019 1:46 pm

I realize that you are busy working on macOS 10.15 updates, but could not find any information about your plans for ARC 2.
You are probably aware of the fact that the ARC 2 measurement application is 32 bit only and the installer does not work either under Catalina.

When can we expect a compatibility update?

Given that you are still selling ARC, I hope that something is already in the works?!

Unfortunately, at this time the mods/admins of this forum do not have any information regarding ARC System 2.5 and macOS 10.15 Catalina compatibility. I would recommend you keep an eye out for any developments on ARC via the IK newsletter.

I also, am wondering when to expect Catalina support for ARC 2.5 or if the product is going to be retired. ARC 2.5 has been an integral part of my workflow since 2017. And the IK Multimedia support Blog doesn't even have ARC on the update roadmap for Catalina.

IK Multimedia and Softube are the only things that are holding me back from testing Catalina on my back up system prior to roll out on my production system. While I have Sonarworks Reference 4, ARC 2.5 has capabilities that Reference 4 does not.

If there isn't any clear indication of what IK Multimedia intends to do with ARC in the short term I will be forced to move forward without it to keep in step with updates for other critical software in my studio that represents a much greater financial investment than I haven IK Multimedia products.

Hi, sorry to say that there is no news for ARC System 2.5 Catalina compatibility. If you would like to explore any other possibilities I would recommend working directly with IK Support via http://www.ikmultimedia.com/contact-support as the forum mods/admins would not have any more technical information nor suggestions in this case.

Thread has been cleaned, I'll remind everybody to please review the rules of the forum before posting.

On the topic itself, there is no official news about ARC System on Catalina at this time but the team is aware that there are users who rely on it. They know that new installations (of ARC System 2.5 or macOS Catalina) will not work correctly but see the note below. The team is working on a solution for new Catalina users but you'll need to sit tight at this time as it does require further research that they have been doing and is not a simple fix. I'm not sure exactly what the solution will be but we will share information via our site, newsletter, social media, forum(s), etc when we do have more information.

Also note that if you already had ARC System 2.5 installed and upgraded Catalina in place, your existing measurements (and the ARC plugin itself) should continue to work.
