The Audiobro Remote Control (aka ARC) is the most striking new feature introduced in LASS 2.0. This powerful script allows you to control multiple patches from one place; for example, you can globally purge or load samples, turn vibrato/non‑vibrato on and off, set up Auto Rhythm patterns, and so on, without having to scroll down and individually perform those operations on each patch. As well as being a big time‑saver for programming multi‑patch setups, the ARC also introduces several important new features, which we’ll examine below.
Since many orchestral samplists rely on keyswitches to perform articulation changes, the absence of patch keyswitching in the original library was a surprise. That omission has been rectified in LASS 2.0: users can now set up their own keyswitches, which is good news for those who want to integrate this library into their existing orchestral templates. Using ARC’s ‘Set‑up’ page (the details of which are explained in the ‘It’s A Set‑up’ box), you can create a set of up to 12 keyswitches, which can be globally shifted up or down in pitch simply by adjusting the bottom note.
This is the latest update to the ARC for LA Scoring Strings (LASS). From the Audiobro website:

To make sure ARC is properly installed simply load the multi called: ARC Starter. If you see ARC you are good to go. However, I had to put the files in Program Files\Common Files\Native Instruments\Kontakt 5
