Any updates as to when this will work for Catalina?

So I see this thread has gone nowhere, and IK has not stated here that there will be no further support for ARC2 products.

Elsewhere on the site they state that ARC2 is a legacy product and there will be no further support for legacy products, so that seems to answer the question and it surely could have been stated clearly here.

It stinks for IK to abandon dedicated users of this product and not at the very least offer an inexpensive upgrade path for ARC3.

I now face the choice of whether to continue with IK products, and given the availability of many more options for room correction software now, it seems unlikely I will buy into ARC3 unless it is made available for ARC2 users at a very attractive price.

Thanks IK, maybe your time is over for me.

ARC 2 owners have a $50 coupon automatically applied to provide the lowest price for ARC 3. This has been in place since its release, and was noted in the materials posted at that time.

You can take advantage of this offer as ARC 2 was out long before Catalina was even a glint in Apple's eye and the codebase could not be made Catalina compatible.

Thank you.

Thanks for the response -- so the $99 microphone-less upgrade path is the best you can offer dedicated customers who are shut out of continuing with the perfectly good ARC2?

I'd gladly pay something for the work that undoubtedly went into enhancing your product but I think it is poor relations for IK to not treat us better than that.

[mod redacted - please review the rules]

best, MR

If you have ARC 2 you would get the $50 off coupon so it would be $49.99. If you'd like to continue using ARC 2 and don't have a new Mac that has Catalina pre-installed, you can continue to run ARC 2 which was out long before Catalina and worked across many versions of OS X/macOS it will run on previous versions of OS X/macOS.

The TL;DR:

There is a low-priced option for those with ARC System 2 as stated in the launch materials for ARC 3: a $/€50 auto-applied coupon, bringing the cost to $/€49.99.
