Create Your Own Music

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.

Get Ready to Sequence

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

Sample Tracks and Play

With the AR-48’s audio capture function, you can sample your favorite tracks and create beats around them to your liking.

Accelerate Your Performance

To create more expressive performances, remove the Ring from the Base Station and trigger delay, reverb, and filters effects with the accelerometer. You’ve never performed quite like this!

It's All About the Base

The Base Station is the control center of the AR-48. Let's explore how it works:

  • Sound - The Sound section features 460 customizable instrument sounds and a synthesizer with three sub-oscillators. Sound parameters can be changed instantly and are easily visible on the section’s dedicated LCD screen.
  • Sequence - In the Sequence section, you can access and edit Songs or Pattern sequences, as well as save up to 384 patterns and 99 songs. Using the backlit LED buttons on the built-in 32-step loop sequencer, you can create musical patterns in real-time or add Swing or Tempo to any sequence of your choice.
  • 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.
  • Rec/Play - Record and save your music in seconds in the Rec/Play section. You can also use audio capture mode, record motion sequences, and save your work automatically.

Get Into the Ring 

The AR-48’s Ring Controller lets your personality shine through. Have a look at its features:

  • 16 Programmable Pads - The ARQ features 16 pressure-sensitive pads with programmable LEDs that allow you to play instrument sounds, trigger samples, and record sequences.
  • 3-Axis Accelerometer - With the 3-axis accelerometer, you can use movement to trigger effects like delay and reverb. Each axis can be assigned to adjust any of your chosen effects parameters.
  • Easy Controls - Dedicated buttons let you play/pause tracks, solo and mute sections, as well as split, arpeggiate, and change effects. You can also switch between PAD and SCALE layout using the Ring’s dedicated buttons. The Grip Mode button prevents you from accidentally triggering pads when you pick up the Ring.
  • Optional Bluetooth Adapter - An optional BTA-1 Bluetooth adapter lets you use the Ring Controller wirelessly during live performances.

Includes:

  • Base Station (AR-48)
  • Ring Controller (AR-48c)
  • AC adapter (AD-14)
  • Operation Manual
