Artiphon Orba Musical Instrument
Don’t be deceived by its small size: the Artiphon Orba Musical Instrument is packed with features that let you create your own music on the go. Orba is a handheld synth, looper and MIDI controller with a built-in speaker that lets anyone make music immediately. Play notes and beats on its touch-sensitive surface while adding effects with movement gestures, such as sliding around the surface like a singing bowl, shaking it for a maraca sound or spinning to control pitch. Use the built-in looper to layer Drum, Bass, Chord and Lead parts to build songs in seconds. Then connect wirelessly to the Orba app to customize your instrument and share your creations with friends. It’s never been easier to make music, wherever you roam.
