Lines, Kits, and Samples

What is a Line?


Lines are collections of sounds that fit a common theme and musical purpose. Each Line contains a curated set of Kits and Samples designed to fit a musical theme. For instance, the Drum Sesh line consists of live drum sounds, the Toys line has obscure, playful musical instruments and Field of Sounds consists of all ‘found sounds.’ Each line has its own flavor and will continue to be fed with new Samples and Kits every day. We’ll also continue to roll out new Lines over time.


What is a Kit?


A Kit is a collection of Samples mapped across the 15 White Keys in ARCADE. All Kits within a Line are setup to have a similar combination of Macro controls, Modulation, Effects, and Modifiers. This makes it easy to switch through Kits in a Line.


What is a Sample?


The basic building blocks of ARCADE are Samples. Samples are audio recordings that play back seamlessly to your heart’s content. Your ARCADE subscription gives you unlimited access to download every Sample we offer royalty-free (please see our Terms of Use for full details).  You can also use your ownSamples in ARCADE by dragging and dropping onto the interface.


Since we’re always adding fresh content to ARCADE, when we have new Lines, Kits, or Samples, you’ll see a yellow New label like this:
