I'm getting IK Multimedia's ARC 2 system soon.

It's pretty straight forward using it as a VST plugin within a DAW but I want to also use it on my Playback device's output so that I can hear what the music I'm listening to sounds like through a flat system.

I am using a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20 with Scarlett Mixcontrol.

Import the songs into your DAW and just apply the vst to the main bus.
That's probably the easiest way you could use it.
