Orba Musical Instrument

Artiphon have introduced Orba, a versatile handheld musical instrument that combines a synthesizer, looper, and MIDI controller all-in-one. Inspired by shakers and hand drums, this palm-friendly gadget lets you create songs in seconds, easily switch between Drum, Bass, Chord, and Lead parts, then layer them to create a song with the built-in looper. A raft of sensors lets you tap, slide, shape, tilt and spin Orba, smashing out beats, forming ear-smashing bass, and craft amazing riffs. It takes just a few seconds to loop a beat, and then you can play along for hours. The little device can plug into music apps via MIDI, or an amp over its 3.5mm output. watch the video below
