Playtronica’s Orbita Makes Making MIDI Music colorful and easy
Playtronica makes playing with MIDI easy
Back on Labor Day 2020, we covered the Watermelon jam from MEZERG that used Playtronica to turn watermelons into MIDI controllers.
Orbita – transforming colors into music
Orbita is a truly playful way to create music because it is so visual. People of any age can enjoy it and the more you know about music and tech the more you can do with Orbita. The user interface is simple, You place magnets on a spinning disc and synths and samples are triggered from Playtronica’s proprietary Web App.
There are four track “orbits” and a”scratch mode” and timing can be adjusted with the spinning wheel like a classic turntable pitch control.
But Orbita is also a USB-C compatible MIDI Controller that works with all MIDI compatible music software. There is even an extension that will convert the MIDI into Control Voltage so you can integrate Orbita with your modular synths.
In Playtronica’s universe, everything should sound. Our past products, TouchMe and Playtron, let people turn any object into an instrument – even touching another person. With Orbita, we bring sound to color through a device that can be used for education, performance, meditation, or just jamming with friends

Anyone remember this MIDI product- The Yamaha DJX BII
Is okay to say “What goes around comes around” when talking about a turntable?
