IK Multimedia debuts ARC room correction software; SampleMoog now shipping

Everyone seems to like those monitors with room-correction algorithms, but not everyone wants to replace their monitors. IK Multimedia now has a solution for room correction in plug-in form. It called ARC (Advanced Room Correction), and it comes with a microphone for recording tones that determine the room correction that’s needed. You apply the plug-in to your DAW’s master channel when mixing, and disable it before rendering the audio, to keep the room correction off the audio file. IK expects to ship ARC in Q4 for $699 or $499 for registerd users of other IK products.

In other IK news, the SampleMoog ($299) virtual instrument that’s based on samples of 16 vintage Moog synthesizers is now shipping, and the Stomp IO hardware foot controller/USB audio interface for using with Amplitube will be available in November. IK is taking pre-orders for ARC and Stomp IO on its website.

We’re here with Rick Stevens, owner of Record Plant in Hollywood, and they’re announcing their expansion into Miami — South Beach, and introducing a new concept: The Record Plant, South Beach is going to be an 8-studio complex, two of which are owned by Record Plant, with the other six studios being owned by…..Top Artists and Producers. They’re calling them, “stu-di-o-min-i-um.” Cool, huh?

Studiominimum is a world-class recording studio and related lounge/work space, side-by-side with Record Plant’s own studios– all in one location. Record Plant will take care of everything, from technical and engineering service, messenger, runner staff, health club, swimming pool — everything. Rose Mann-Cherney and Rick believe that this development represents the development of the future of the high-end recording industry. Sales are underway; actual opening of the studios is projected for winter season, 2009. Stay tuned for updates.

Mix Girls Rock The Party

Mix Girls Jen Smith, Sarah Benzuly and Clarina Raydmanov were looking mighty fine at the Mix/Avatar 30th Birthday bashlast night at Avatar Studios. The Mix crew and about 500 other attendees had the AC working overtime as the body heat and unseasonably warm NY weather kicked the party up to sauna-like levels. Despite that, plenty of good food, drink and audio celebs were in evidence making it the coolest place to be in NY.

Aside from their booth, SSL had a “shed” for sale on the show floor. It wasn’t just any shed but a replica of Peter Gabriel’s own personal recording studio. The whole thing was shipped from the UK and it will be sold at the show. Better bring a big wallet though, as the asking price is about $300k.
