I've found that once you record notes, they won't change even if you change the patch or the key afterwards. You can leverage this to record/overdub octave bass or borrow a seventh chord for example. I created a loop of New Order's Perfect kiss using this idea. Sharing..
That is beautiful. May I make a request? Louise by The Human League ...
@GJ van Mulbregt
I just finished the updates to my chord editor, so this is a good song for me to test with. Stay Tuned :)
@GJvanMulbregt I never heard this song before but am a fan. It was a bit tricky to get the chords with the Fiddler but it will be much easier when I finish the Editor. Anyways, here's your request :)
Sharing some other cover song loops...
This is gorgeous. Thank you very much! :-)
I don't want to sound too eager, but I'm looking forward to your Editor!
I am sorry to read (in the Hacking thread) that you are taking a break from your exploration of the interior of the Orba.
Anyway. Maybe I can make 3 more requests?
- We are the robots by Kraftwerk
- The Book of love by Magnetic Fields (perfect cover by Peter Gabriel)
- Under Pressure by Queen
Please don't feel obligated to anything. But you'd be doing me a big favor with that.:-)
I have a number of other big projects going on, but I accept your challenge. I am a huge Kraftwerk fan, I love the Magnetic Fields and who doesn't love Queen. I won't commit to a timeline but I enjoy creating little loops. Hacking the Orba is rewarding, but its certainly not fun. Creating Loops is the Fun for me. I have some ideas on quantizing but I truly feel Artiphon will release these features in the next few months in coordination with the release of Orba 2. I don't want to spend dozens of hours making something that Artiphon will be releasing soon. Who knows, they might even release custom scales/chords which would destroy all the work I've done.
I don't even know which loop to start with since I love all of those songs!
That's very kind of you. I'm not in a hurry. To make the choice even more challenging:
- Hey There Little Insect by Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers
- Black Light by Material
- (I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea by Elvis Costello
- Country Boy by Tyra B
- Take Five by Dave Brubeck
Take Five is a great challenge but we haven't figured out how to change the time signature yet. :)
I'm pretty lazy. And that's why I tell myself that it's good not to know some things. Things that sometimes take away the magic of something beautiful. Example: Since I know what modulation is, I often experience it as a trick.
Nevertheless, I googled "time signature". That went well :-). I already knew Take Five has a less common rhythm - 5/4-, just like Golden Brown by The Stranglers.
Then Path Of The Blazing Sarong by Bill Ravi Harris & The Prophets must be extra challenging. That sounds like an extra weird rhythm. And - maybe because of that - the tune never bores me. I may be wrong but it reminds me a bit of Black Light by Material.
Take 5 is an old favourite. I spent a while learning this on Dualo. :-)

The Orba Diablo fell apart the first time I tried juggling it on a USB cable. But I've got loftier ambitions now, for a triple Orba mounted in a Pool triangle, when my v2 turns up...;-)
Take 5 beckons.
@BJG145. Is that you playing Take 5 on that crazy instrument!?! Amazing!!!! You are quite the musician!
