Please be sure to update your firmware as well.
A progress bar has been added to show when your Orba is synchronizing with the app. For the first connection that can take up to a minute on a USB connection and up to 5 minutes on a Bluetooth LE Midi connection
[Android only] Importing audio files for custom presets does not work. We are working on a fix.
This is Artiphon’s new companion app for Orba 2 that lets you:
Connect your Orba 2 wirelessly using MIDI over Bluetooth
Explore and play hundreds of new sounds, as well as change keys, and tunings
Record entire songs and loops with Drum, Bass, Chord, and Lead parts
Create your own instruments and sample any sound in the world
Customize your sounds by adjusting individual part volume, add reverb and delay, and more
Perfect your song by adding Quantize, which snaps your musical phrases to the beat so that every moment fits perfectly into the groove.
The Orba 2 app allows you to choose between over a hundred new audio-based presets. Including sounds inspired by genres like Trap, RnB, Electro-pop, Lofi, and more. With Orba 2, you can now play instruments like electric guitars and upright pianos, as well as more adventurous sounds like vocals, found sounds, and custom artist songs. Imagine conducting an orchestra in the park with no strings attached and no screens required.
We’re also pleased to be introducing an all new sampling feature, which lets you make your own instruments. With the press of a button in the Orba 2 App, everything around you can be turned into an Orba preset. A bicycle bell, a bird singing, or your roommate’s amazing voice can all be played, looped, and shared as a musical melody. Transferring your sample from your device to Orba 2 requires a cabled USB connection.
You’ll also use your Orba 2 app to explore the new quantize feature, which snaps your musical phrases to the beat so that every moment fits perfectly into the groove. In addition, you’ll be able to mix the volume of your individual parts, add reverb and delay, and more.
But wait, there’s more! Stay tuned for additional features (like song saving) coming soon.
This app is only compatible with Orba 2 by Artiphon. If you are looking for the Orba 1 app, search for “Orba 1” in the app store.
