Which reminds me, did these fail hard or what

I'm waiting for the Cowbell version...

I liked it better when it was called "Simon" and cost about 1/100th as much...

I actually like the circle sequencing and bluetooth midi could be ok ?

Wouldn't catch me waving the hoop around to do filter sweeps.

Don't you guys think it's sad that Zoom is striving to innovate and yet fails so miserably ?

When they are being blown out for $250 Id like to try one. I guess it depends on what kinda sample looper is in there and what the synth engine is like. I do like the idea, kinda as strange as the Tenori so thats always interesting.

The only shame is everyone from Katy Perry and Kanye (or at least their backing dancers) will be waving em around for a bit before everyone loses interest.

Anyone else see the resemblance...?

It was all about the pocket simon, that was the future!



I still like the circle sequencers

Reminds me of the Jeff Mills "The Visitor" TR-909 rebuild

Someday in the future, people will carry around pocket sized computers!

Circuit bending opportunity? Voltage going to the lights sent out to jacks for CV?

that zoom thing.. because everyone needs a LED light show on their bluetooth digital tambourine

it kind looks like a syfy version of one those round donut pillows that people with hemorrhoids have to sit on.

not to be a dick, but innovative and that cheesy beat just dont fit.
I'm so sick of that cornball offbeat hihat thing.

Why is everybody making 'lifestyle' toys?

The Kadabra beats the Arq in the cheesy department.

Very first impression:

synth: 3 osc, 2 lfos, lots of modulation, effects. every instrument mangled, modulated, realtime recording of knob movements + ring controller movements. ring can control every parameter.

sequencer : 32 tracks, up to 128 steps per track (8bars). touch sensitive input. good for real time recording. step input, piano roll.

sampler: 8 bars samples, direct sampling, sample trim, sample modulation with all synth parameters. clip launch.

ring controller: a class of its own. 3 rows each with 32 segments for note input; 2 rows for parameter information. Ableton Live controller. (Needs Mac/iOS ). As a pitch controller like a theremin?
Applications, applications.!?

ARQ was a christmas gift. the journey had just begun.

How is it with external MIDI - both as a recorder of events and for sequencing?
