ORBA FIRST IMPRESSIONS

A dozen brave souls approach Orba for the first time, each in their own way. These unrehearsed first impressions use both Orba's unique onboard synth and its wireless MIDI capabilities with some of our favorite production software. Watch the full series below.

LET'S GET TECHNICAL

GESTURES

GESTURES

Orba’s touch and motion sensors combine to capture even your most subtle gestures. Pick it up and hold it, or just reach over and play a few notes while it’s sitting on your desk. Tap it with one hand or both, with your fingertips or thumbs, or shake and wave it through the air. You can slide around each pad, or go crazy with some vibrato. It’s all up to you.

THE ORBA SYNTH

We designed Orba's revolutionary internal synthesizer to respond to the way you move.
It's a wide range of Drum, Bass, Chord, and Lead sounds have been tuned for real-time control via Orba's intuitive touch and motion gestures.

HEAR IT FOR YOURSELF

THE ORBA APP

Orba lets you play every part of the song on a single instrument. Switch easily between Drum, Bass, Chord, and Lead parts, then layer them to create a song with the built-in looper. It takes just a few seconds to loop a beat, and then you can play along for hours.

How to build a song in seconds:
1. Select Drum mode and tap out a beat
2. Add a Bass line by sliding around the pads
3. Play a whole Chord with the touch of a finger
4. Switch to Lead and create a melody that's always in tune
5. Add effects by waving, tilting, spinning, and more

This companion app gives you full functionality when using your Orba. Connect Orba to your favorite iOS device using the provided USB to USB-C cable and start building custom tunings, exploring presets, and creating your own songs right in the palm of your hand.
