Music Right in Your Hands
Orba is a handheld synth, looper, and MIDI controller that lets anyone make music. Play notes and beats on its touch-sensitive surface, add effects with movement gestures, and layer your ideas into songs with the built-in looper. Connect to the Orba App to customize your instrument and share your creations with friends. It’s never been easier to make music, anywhere you go.
Play With Gestures
Orba’s touch and motion sensors combine to capture even your most subtle gestures. 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. Circle your fingers over the top like a singing bowl, or strum an invisible guitar.
The Orba App
The Orba companion app lets you explore even more. Available for iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows, the Orba app will let you access more sounds and settings. The app is also where you’ll be able to save and edit your loops and songs. And of course, you can share your creations to social media and export to your favorite music-making software to keep building your beats.
