At the 2022 NAMM Show, Artiphon introduced the Orba 2, the second generation of their Orba synth, looper, and controller.

Here’s what’s new with the Orba 2:

  • Play any sound – Artiphon redesigned Orba’s sound engine from the ground up so that it can play sampled pianos, guitars, found sounds, and more.
  • Create your own instruments – With the Orba 2 app, you’ll be able to record any sound from the real world and transform it into a playable musical instrument.
  • Loop songs in seconds – Orba 2 has an integrated looper that allows you to record loops right on the device itself. Using Drum, Bass, Chord, and Lead modes, you’ll be able to combine these sounds to create songs. Orba 2’s new quantize feature will keep everything in time. And since Orba 2 has more memory than its predecessor, you’ll be able to make songs up to 128 bars

The Orba 2 is available now for $149.99 USD.
