Overview

The Zoom ARQ Aero RhythmTrak AR-48 is a unique production system that has all the needed features for the studio, and some wild maneuvers that can be fun on stage as well. This all-in-one production and live performance instrument lets you craft music in a fun and inspiring way that gets you interacting with your sound. Does it have pads? Yes, 16 pressure-sensitive pads with programmable LEDs that allow you to play instrument sounds, trigger samples, and record sequences. Does it have a sequencer? Sure does, in fact the ARQ AR-48 has a built-in 32-step sequencer with multiple note input modes. In fact it has all the essential features of a standard production system, and some that you would never expect, like a 3-axis accelerometer that uses your movement to trigger effects like delay and reverb, allowing for fun and creative applications in the studio and for some really expressive performances on stage.

You can load your own samples into ARQ or choose from its 460 drum, instrument, and vocal sounds. Explore a variety of genres—from hip hop and house to techno and dubstep—to craft the music you want. Capture what you’re playing in real-time by hitting record. Or use the dedicated step-input buttons to quickly program a beat. Start with a kick and snare, then add hi-hats and toms. With the AR-48’s unique design, it’s easy to see your sequence as a true loop. The ARQ offers a variety of fun and exciting ways to produce and perform your music. You can play and remix your music live. You can also play over your patterns in real-time using the Ring Controller or use the MIDI out to control external instruments.

Effect
The Effects section offers 16 Master Effects, including reverb, high- and low-pass filters, delay, bit crush, and more. Use them during song and pattern playback, in the studio, or during live performances.
