ARQ is like a multitool for producers and performers

Ableton School in Boston

Maybe the coolest thing to come out of The NAMM Show this weekend was Arq. Gizmag refers to it as a futuristic electronic tamborine.”

The ARQ Aero RhythmTrak is described as a drum machine, sildenafil sequencer, buy synthesizer, looper, and MIDI controller, and features a Bluetooth-enabled ring with a built-in accelerometer for music creation and playback control from movement.

Say whaaaaa?

For the technical details and more photos Gizmodo seems to be the best resource.

Regular laypeople might have better luck at Dancing Astronaut or Sound on Sound.

Or press play here:

Can you imagine how the Arq is going to interface with Ableton? If you can, you should be in our lab, because I honestly have no idea. Email me to tell me about it.
