The Ten Best Gifts for Music Producers on Reverb for Less Than $300

It’s not often that a truly unique electronic instrument comes out. But just when you think it’s all been done, here’s the Orba 2 from Artiphon. A handheld instrument that sits in your palm, it has both synthesizer and sampler engines. You can create sequenced four-track loops of up to 128 bars. It also responds to gestures that can change the onboard sounds, or even control external MIDI software.

Orba 2 might not be the most sophisticated instrument ever made but for this price it’s inspiring and a lot of fun. The one in the listing is brand new and ships from Perfect Circuit in the US. Give your friend (or yourself) a hand for $149.99.
