Now the trick is to activate ARC 2 whilst mixing
and/or mastering (initially you need to establish your studio
correction pattern of course).
When you are finished, you must turn off
the ‘correction’ before recording the results into the record
channel you set-up with ARC 2 inserted. Now you have a stereo file
you can import into a DAW for mastering or burning to disk.
I have read that some people have learned to
‘mix’ to their room acoustics and hence they don’t need ARC or room
My experience says this would be almost
impossible as (in my case) the two are quite different and once I
have completed a mix and have turned the correction off I don’t like
what I hear from the monitors (Event ASP 8s), but when I render to
disk and play outside the studio all the mud is gone and it sounds
