    Hello! Matthew is an excellent teacher! 1) In the "Playback" chapter, Matthew talks about ARC 2 and SonarWorks 4, as room-calibration applications. Do we need both, or, did he use one first, then realise, that that the second one is better? If so, which should we get? 2) He didn't show us how the video aspect(s) of WaveLab worked. Could you ask him to do a chapter on that? Thank you! Derry Etkins.

    Hi Derry - You shouldn't need both ARC 2 and SonarWorks 4, just one or the other—I'm sure Matt just wanted to mention both options. I've had occasion to try SonarWorks and I can say that it works quite well, but I'm sure ARC2 can be equally effective (you can see from the graphs in the video that the results seem to be pretty similar).

    Thank you for the response, Joe! Indeed, the graphs are very similar. ARC 2 has more "eye candy". ;)

    Thanks for the kind words, Derry. There are advantages to each. Sonarworks has the advantage of their app called Systemwide, which allows you to use Reference on the sound system of your Mac and PC at all times. That way, all the sound coming through your browser, music player, and other programs can be equalized by the same profile as the one you use in WaveLab or any other pro audio program. (ARC cannot do that.) The advantage of ARC is that you can design your own response curves. For musicians/producers who have lost some of their hearing in certain frequency bands, ARC can help bring those levels up so that the user can craft the EQ to flatten their own hearing curve. (Sonarworks cannot do that.) I'd recommend getting an audiogram from a qualified audiologist to help design or customize your own curve. I reviewed both programs at Ask.Audio. Here are the links: https://ask.audio/articles/review-sonarworks-reference-4-studio-edition https://ask.audio/articles/review-ik-multimedia-arc-2-5 Cheers! MLTH
