Hi there and welcome to the new Orba forum!
Please introduce yourself, and let us know what you think. We’re eager to hear your questions, comments, and ideas.
It could be about anything – the sounds, the industrial design, the app as it continues to be developed, or anything else!
lloyd haber Can you provide a link to the app on the google play store that you're talking about? When I search for orba and artiphon the results do not contain anything related to this device.
I've tried the different presets with the windows app and found that many of the lead sounds are inaudible when you have the drums, bass, and chords playing on loops. Did I miss a way to adjust the volume for a single instrument?
I also get a lot of static/noise, sounds like extremely overdriven speakers, when multiple instruments are playing at once.
Also the windows app UI doesn't make much sense. The play button doesn't do anything. I cannot get a song to save from the orba to the PC and back onto the Orba. I cannot see what data is contained in a song, loading them just results in the orba doing nothing when I press play. So the saved song is empty? Who knows.
You should be able to hear the presets form the app without having to load them into the orba.
You should also be able to load a preset for all four instruments at once if you want to.
"There is no link, it just downloads onto the phone."
There's some context missing here. What downloads onto the phone? By what means and after what other events? Via the play store? If the app is on the play store, you could search it on the play store and provide a link to it. Here, if you search for "orba" under apps:
The results look like the attached image. Can you point out which one of these is the app you're talking about?
I think Lloyd is talking about the beta – you won't find it in the Play store, so need to sign up in order for it to install.
The question was, "when will the Orba app be available in the Google Play store?"
The Apple App Store is not the Google Play Store.
The stand alone sound patches could be a bit more varied, but having said that, I've been tapping out ideas during downtime in work, then using it as a midi controller with Reason software when i get home.
I love it
