Is there anyway you can provide people with a shipping time frame? Your site says 2-3 days but I can understand the Orba taking longer. Please just give us an idea of time frame, 10 days after purchase? Sometime in December? We’ve all waited a long time, and waiting is fine, but please give us an idea of when. Thanks.
I ordered on 7/20 after receiving email that I was selected off the reservation list. It appeared I was in the 7000 range on a list of about 10000. Email had me thinking I was included in the first batch off list going out if I purchased. Now looking at the email, the payment is simply keeping me on the list. I just hope pre-purchase folks get them before retail. That would be a let down.
Same. I ordered in 7/20 in the 8000 out of 10,000 range.

I’m in the 4000 range. Ugh. Just wish I knew when

When will the Orba be available for Switzerland?


I am a kickstarter supporter from the Czech Republic (EU) and I am really looking forward to holding Orba in my hand. And if Orba arrived until September 1st, when my birthday is, it would be a great gift!



Hi, I’m a kickstarter backer number 4320 in the US due to my Immense childlike excitement I am unable to “patiently” wait for my Orba. I’m positively twitching. I should be getting my shipping confirmation within the next week and I opted for the expedited shipping so I should have it a couple of weeks baring anymore unforeseen global calamities. Keeping an eye on social media for reports from the early arrivals. I’ll report anything new that happens

Not too many people here and I don’t think they’ve shipped any out yet - especially when there is no user created content to be found anywhere on social media.

I’ve seen one person in the comments section of the update page on the Orba kickstarter page that reports getting one on the 4th. This forum is surprisingly empty for this stage in the campaign?

Hey fellow creators looking forward to the Orba I plan on using it with my roli software and in Reason Studio also on my IOS apps which I have a lot of MPE ones and with my SP 404 SX  and Kaoss Pad 2 and my East West Minstry Of Rock 2 software 

I hope to colab with some people on here

Orba and ROLI software are a match made in heaven. So many dimensions of expression, even compared to ROLI's own controllers. It's what the MPE drums in Noise in particular have been waiting for. Now if only they'd unlock the SWAM packs for third-party hardware…

Have y’all started shipping the Orba yet? It’s the start of the 3rd week of August and I have yet to receive an email with a tracking number.
Btw, I did pay for expedited shipping so I was expecting an email last week stating my Orba was on its way. What’s up guys? Why isn’t that happening?
Did you see the Friday update? (Crudely-pasted version at if not.)
Mine showed up this morning! I am really enjoy just experimenting with it. I looked for the app on the Google Play Store and couldn't find it. Is there one? I am very excited to get into this. I have Muscular Dystrophy and have limited mobility and strength. The Orba is so easy for me to use! I have tried other midi devices designed for people who have mobility issues and could not use them. Thanks for an amazing design!
