Orba app 0.14.21 is available

Orba app version 0.14.21 is now available. 

For iOS: The Apple App Store will have the latest version for download or updating. 

For Android: The Orba Android app is still in a public beta test phase due to connection issues. The beta test can be joined here:

For Mac and Windows: If you have the app already installed you will see a prompt to update from within the app. If you have not installed the app, it is available here:

What's new:

  • Enjoy new tunings! The Orba Diatonic tuning can be found in the Lead presets folder. Orba Open and Orba 7th can be found in the Chord presets folder. 

  • Orba will now put itself to bed. Leave Orba running for ten minutes and it will automatically power down. Feel free to disable this feature in the settings menu.

  • The app will now automatically detect if your Orba is in "DFU mode” and prompt a firmware update. In the unlikely event that your Orba becomes unresponsive or "bricked," this will make it easy to resurrect. 

  • We’re temporarily removing the Song Browser and song saving buttons. Song saving was causing unexpected behavior in other areas. This is a temporary fix and we look forward to bringing songs back, better than before. 

  • This update also includes major stability improvement across multiple devices.

Arne- Is there an ETA on when the Orba App will once again work with Bluetooth for those of us running iOS 14.2? This problem continues to also effect any connection via Bluetooth to other compatible apps like Garage Band.

Apple got back to us and said that they have a fix but they can not say when it will be released.

Arne- I just updated my phone to iOS 14.3 beta and Bluetooth seems to be working just fine! Hopefully Apple will push out this update to everyone soon. Finally!!!

Fingers crossed :-) Thanks!

Same for me - iPadOS 14.3 Public Beta 2, working well. Phew!

Buonasera a tutti. 

Non compare la scritta "save" e non permette di registrare. Certo l'utilità è ridotta al 50%. Un costruttore di loops volatili..... C'e' qualcuno che possa suggerire una soluzione?

Io proverò col registratore (un DW 100) .... mah!

New install on Windows 10: Only get a black screen with upper right options to Minimize, Maximize or Close.

Is this a Windows bug? When will it be addressed?

@Arne, when do you expect the Save Song functionality to return? I just received an Orba for Christmas but was very disappointed to learn that I can't save anything I make. I really like the product, but I'd like to be able to save my work. Can you give your customers an update on your progress fixing the issues with that feature? 



Could I suggest this topic be unpinned? The thread for the latest version is here, and this outdated thread is attracting replies in the wrong place. (The Orba + iOS 14.2 thread is also pretty much superseded and should probably also be unpinned. Note that only five threads total are shown under each category on the main forum page, so ideally the pinned threads should be kept to four or fewer per category so that at least one other current topic is visible.)

Done, thanks!
