A radical approach to rhythm generators.

ARQ will change the way you work, and it will change the look of your workstation and performance area. It is a design marvel, its unorthodox shape being as much a requirement of function as a preference of form. ARQ is a drum machine, sequencer, synthesizer, looper and MIDI controller with a built-in accelerometer. Even more though, ARQ represents workflow freedom. With its wireless Bluetooth Ring Controller, you can escape the booth, move the music, and get in front of the crowd.

The Base Station
The ARQ Base Station houses 468 drum/instrument sounds ("one-shot" sampled waveform sounds), 70 synthesizer sounds, and dozens of digital effects. Dual 1/4" line-level audio inputs enable phrase recording and looping. There are stereo 1/4" line-level outputs, as well as a 1/4" headphone jack with volume control.

The Ring Controller
The detachable Ring Controller communicates with the Base Station, as well as DAWs, via wireless Bluetooth. It offers 96 velocity- and pressure-sensitive pads for clip launching and playing drum sounds, instrument sounds and sequences. Phrases and sounds can be played chromatically, or you can choose from dozens of preset scales in any key. Its unique Grip Detection automatically prevents accidental triggering of the pads under your hand. An onboard 3-axis accelerometer generates MIDI control messages to alter sounds and effects in real time.

The Only Drum Machine for Performers
Play it while mounted to the Base Station, or remove it to take your performance to the front of the stage. ARQ comes with a multitude of editable PCM drum and instrument sounds organized into 50 genre-specific kits, and you can also develop 50 kits of your own, complete with effects.

It's a Comprehensive Synthesizer
ARQ's sound engine offers 468 sampled waveforms, as well as 70 types of synthesizer sounds that allow you to build original timbres. Choose from 538 oscillator types for sonic variety, then add effects such as filtering, delay, and reverb, along with sound-shaping controls like envelope generators and modulation.

It's a Loop(er)
ARQ allows you to create completely original loops from onboard sounds or patterns, or by capturing external audio. Set start and end points, change the pitch if desired, choose between forward or reverse playback, then assign each loop to a different controller pad. Up to 32 loops can be played simultaneously and synchronized to the same tempo. ARQ makes creating loops a lot more fun.

Accelerate your Performance
The Ring's onboard 3-axis accelerometer can be used to change sounds and effects in real time. Wave and tilt it to alter onboard effects parameters and to generate MIDI control messages. You can even link it to your digital mixing console and use the accelerometer to fly sounds around the room.
