Zoom ARQ

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!
