Overview

Hold out your hand and meet Orba 2.

The Orba 2 Synthesizer from Artiphon gives you the power to craft a custom instrument tailored to your musical imagination. With its redesigned sound engine, you can choose from an array of electronic and acoustic sounds to play pianos, guitars, orchestral instruments and more. Using the Orba 2 app, you record and instantly turn any sound into a playable note. Whether it's a jackhammer, siren or your own voice, you have the freedom to capture and morph the world around you into music.

Design Your Dream Instrument

The Orba 2 features highly responsive touch pads and motion sensors that detect your every movement to produce an infinite combination of sounds. Slide, tap, spin and shake—each gesture controls the onboard synth to blend samples and sculpt sounds that are uniquely your own. Play the same note twice? Not with the Orba 2. Its expressive touch technology ensures a one-of-a-kind performance every time.

Loop and Share Your Creations

The built-in looper makes songwriting a snap. Choose from Drum, Bass, Chord and Lead modes to build songs in seconds. New quantizing abilities keep all layers tight in time so you can focus on having fun. And with 12 times more internal memory than the original Orba, you have the space to create songs up to 128 bars long. Easily share your musical masterpieces with others by pairing the Orba 2 to the app via Bluetooth or USB-C.

Professional MIDI Control

Orba 2 is fully compliant with MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE), enabling it to transmit detailed performance information per note. Use the Orba 2 to control MIDI-compatible software like Ableton Live, Pro Tools and GarageBand as well as any MIDI-ready mobile apps. Whether at home or on the go, the Orba 2 synthesizer puts professional music production and endless creativity at your fingertips.
