Artiphon Orba

21 IN STOCK

A musical instrument designed for your hands. A synth, looper, and controller that lets you create songs with intuitive gestures like tapping, sliding, and waving.

Songs in Seconds: With Orba’s integrated looper you can layer Drum, Bass, Chord, and Lead parts to create beats and songs on the fly. Play through the built-in speaker or use the ⅛” jack to connect headphones or amplifiers. Pair wirelessly to the Orba app to customize your instrument and share your creations with friends (the Orba app is available on iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows).

Play with Gestures: Orba’s touch and motion sensors combine to capture even the most subtle micro-movements. The playing surface features eight highly touch-sensitive pads, and Orba has ten core gestures: Tap, Press, Spin, Radiate, Tilt, Shake, Slide, Vibrato, Move, and Bump. Each gesture can be used to control the onboard synth engine or your MIDI music software of choice.

Smart Device Technology: Artiphon designed Orba with inspiration from traditional instruments, classic synthesizers, household objects, and modern mobile devices. The capacitive-sensing pads, haptic engine, and LED feedback to incorporate the latest in mobile and gaming-controller technology. Orba features a proprietary onboard synth engine which includes sound design by esteemed DJ and engineer Richard Devine. 

MIDI Control: Use Orba to control your MIDI-based software and hardware instruments (via USB-C or wirelessly via Bluetooth MIDI). Use Orba with GarageBand, Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, Pro Tools, Cubase, FL Studio, as well as any MIDI-compatible mobile app. Orba is fully compliant with the new standard for MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE), making it capable of multiple independent note expressions.
