A musical instrument designed for your hands

It includes synth, looper, and MIDI controller able to create songs in seconds. between various modes: Drum, Bass, Chord, and Lead parts, then layer them to create a song with the built-in looper. Orba’s touch and motion sensors combine to capture hand gestures. Pick it up and hold it, or just reach over and play a few notes while it’s sitting on your desk. Play 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 some vibrato
SOUND Orba builds on Artiphon’s design theory of the multi-instrument: a single instrument that you can play as many. Where the INSTRUMENT 1 reflects traditional instruments like guitars, violins, and keyboards, Orba lets you play with simple gestures we use every day on smartphones, trackpads, and game controllers.
