OTHER APP IMPROVEMENTS
I prefer to use the Orba without a cable. What am I missing with the old app?
With the old app I can save and load songs. Not ideal, but it works.
Better than nothing (4 months already!)
@ Malcolm - Thank you. The new presets work well with the old app. For anyone interested: check here
I had the same problem as Celso Santos on unboxing my new Orba today, and followed his suggestion of putting the Orba into DFU mode. The 0.14.34 version of the app detected the Orba and offered the firmware update option. It took several attempts before the process completed successfully, it returned the error message perhaps four or five times, sometimes after 2 or 3 minutes of updating, before it was finally complete. Thanks Celso!
I just keep holding on to this little sphere hoping that one day its many, many, software issues dry up and we get a functional instrument. I have yet to have a smooth Firmware update experience, and am constantly paranoid to update because of the number of times I've ended up with a device in an unusable state. The ultra tin-sounding 'sound pack' that was added is almost a kick in the gut when the unit itself is so unstable. Frustrating to see any new features added when there are still some insanely large outstanding issues.
