Release Notes

Orba App Version 0.14.16

New features

We’re pleased to present a new (and free!) preset bundle called “Minimax.” It’s a minimalist set of four electro tones that work especially well for more sparse arrangements. You’ll find a preset for Drum, Bass, Chord, and Lead. We hope you enjoy them!

Bug Fixes

• There was some antivirus software that really had it out for our new app. We’ve now code-signed our firmware update utilities so antivirus software will not get in the way of your updates.
• We’ve increased the size of the “Browse” tab so it is not covered by the notches on some mobile devices, for instance, iPhone X. Browse away.
• We’ve fixed an animation glitch when changing views.
• Some users experienced issues with Orba going into firmware update mode (aka DFU mode), and their Orbas appeared to be “dead”. We’ve improved the firmware updating process by ensuring that all content is downloaded from the cloud before starting the firmware update. This should fix most of the issues, but please let us know if you’re experiencing any strange behavior.

Get the most out of your Orba with the Orba companion app from Artiphon. Designed to take your everyday music-making even further, the Orba app offers endless customization with an easy-to-use interface.

Connect wirelessly using MIDI over Bluetooth. Then explore a library of Songs and Presets that feature different sounds, tunings, and tempos. Record loops, then easily save, edit, and organize your creations – even add custom artwork for each track.

We’re always improving the Orba experience, and are working on a few known issues with song saving & loading, and USB connectivity.

Updating your firmware resolves most issues.

ORBA SESSIONS
FOR GARAGEBAND & LOGIC PRO

Platform: macOS
Available to download here: GarageBand | Logic Pro

Here is a collection of our favorite factory sounds from GarageBand and Logic Pro – organized in a session to work perfectly with Orba right out of the box. Each set of sounds is grouped by color – the drums are green, the basses are blue, etc. – to match the modes on Orba. When you select your instrument channel, be sure to change to the same mode on Orba, and everything will be mapped out for you and ready to go.

This session is available for GarageBand and Logic Pro. Both versions share the same sounds and track layout, but the Logic Pro version has a few additional settings, MIDI routings, and customizations.


ORBA SESSION
FOR ABLETON LIVE

Platform: macOS and Windows
Available to download here

This Ableton Live session is custom tailored to leverage Orba’s unique interface and gesture set. It has all of the MIDI channel routing pre-set, as well as some sounds loaded, mixed, and mapped to gestures. It also includes various loop-length clips so you can record using Ableton’s looper.


ORBA SESSION
FOR F.L. STUDIO

Platform: macOS and Windows
Available to download here

Welcome to your Orba FL Studio template. We’ve picked out three different instruments for each mode on Orba. When you select your instrument channel, be sure to change to the same mode on Orba, and everything will be mapped out for you ready to go.

INSTRUMENT 1 SESSIONS

These sounds were selected and customized by the Artiphon staff to work especially well with the INSTRUMENT 1. If you’re new to GarageBand, this is a good place to get started. If you’re already savvy with Apple music-making software, this project can act as a jumping-off point and a place to get ideas for making fun sounds on the Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1.


INSTRUMENT 1 FOR MAINSTAGE

Platform: macOS
Available to download here

These sounds were chosen to match the default presets on the INSTRUMENT 1. Turn on MIDI Program changes in the INSTRUMENT 1 Editor and when you press the preset knob, these instruments will automatically change. This is a great way to perform live using a variety of technique and sounds.


ARTIPHON TILT-READY SYNTHS
FOR GARAGEBAND & LOGIC PRO

Additionally, you’ll need to download Kontakt’s Factory Selection Library which can be found here.

The Native Instruments Kontakt Player is a free sampler for PC and Mac that can be used to play virtual instruments with the Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1.

INSTRUMENT 1 SESSION FOR ABLETON LIVE

Platform: macOS and Windows
Available to download here

This Ableton Live session is a template for using MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) with the INSTRUMENT 1. By setting up six individual instances of an Ableton virtual instrument, you can use string bending or fretless mode to independently bend the pitch of strings and control channel pressure. This additional setup is only necessary for independently controlling pitch bend or channel pressure, otherwise the INSTRUMENT 1 will work normally with just one instance of an Ableton virtual instrument.

Available to download here

Max is a visual programming language used by artists, educators, researchers and anyone who wants to take their sights and sounds to new heights. Use the Artiphon Max patch as a template to access all of the MIDI data sent from the INSTRUMENT 1 in a controlled, organized, and visual way. Route the INSTRUMENT 1 to trigger custom synths, video manipulation tools, and any of the limitless possibilities made possible within the Max programming environment. This patch takes care of all of the preliminary routing so you can start creating right away.
