Amazing sound device - experience and interface
radiona.org 19.11.2021
We bought Orba in preparation for workshops with people with intellectual challenges. Having experiences with designing, creating and building our own synths, guitar pedals and sound devices, we were absolutely amazed by Orba. The product is so versatile and yet easy to use. It has great features and sounds we can all relate to. We have many similar devices in our collection, but this is so far the most advanced. It can be used separately or connected with the sound system, it could be used as MIDI interface or solo. The fact that you have a polyphonic synth and a looper, that you can feel the vibration via motors while playing drums is just great. It has a great potential in the spheres of inclusive and assistive music technology, as well when informally working with children and developing their music skills from the earliest stage. And it is designed so organically to fit in the hand of the player. The most interactive music device we haven't seen in a long time. We bought first two, and when we got it, we ordered 2 more because we realised it will be in frequent use. Orba could be a great present for everyone from a small child to seniors, as well as to be used in education and on workshops.

Nice toy..
iamoneabe 26.05.2021
I bought this with an idea of being an actual sound designing/composing/MIDI controller do. On paper it does all that, but once you into the ecosystem, you'll find out it's not really there, yet. The community is great and it's fun to interact in. But it's more of a gimmick at this point. At least for me..

It will be vibrating on every key press very loudly
Nevidimka 13.01.2021
I like it... but...

You cannot switch vibration on every key press.

App settings has no option to switch this off.

Makes it useless

Not the best for intense use
gorkemarikan 15.11.2022
We use 3 ORBAs in our workshops for children. ORBAs frequently get stuck into DFU mode and then we need to reinstall the firmware to recover them. Headphone outputs get loose after sometime and makes glitches which is pretty annoying. Other than that everything is fine, and actually its one of the most attractive instruments that children find them interesting.
