Rarely there are really big hardware deals. Such offers exist when manufacturers or shops sell out certain products and no longer produce. One of them is the Zoom ARQ-48, a hardware groovebox with a very unique design. It is described as an “an innovative, all-in-one production and live performance tool featuring a ring design that allows you to create and perform music in a unique way.
ARQ ARQ-48 can be used as a drum machine, sequencer, Synthesizer, looper, and MIDI controller, allowing you to easily create sequences and rhythms with the 16 programmable pads. Effects can be controlled on-the-fly with the removable ring controller, which can be also used as an aerial instrument. Sample tracks to create your own mashups, record drums over the top, or use the on-board 460 drum, synth, vocal, and instrument sound to create new music. Since the product is on EOL, there is now a huge discount of 70% OFF for a limited time.
