The ZOOM ARQ Aero RhythmTrak is an all-in-one production and live performance instrument which includes an integrated drum machine, sequencer, synthesizer, looper, and MIDI controller with a built-in accelerometer.
One trend in music instruments development is getting away from linear interfaces based on knobs and keys, and instead creating devices that allow physical intuitive interaction and designed for live performances. That is where Zoom ARQ comes in, one of the most amazing music instruments of the year. Zoom ARQ is a circular device with a lighted ring that lets you visualize music as a true loop and it functions as a drum machine, sequencer, synthesizer, looper and MIDI controller at the same time. ARQ is completely wireless and can be used as a standalone instrument or connected to a computer. It is a show in itself and a one-of-a-kind live music experience.
Just wait until Kieran Hebden gets his hands on it!
