Orbit packs a massive amount of MIDI control into a compact and intuitive design that fits comfortably in your hands. Every inch, inside and out, is tailor-made for live DJ performance and powerful wireless control—Orbit is 100% MIDI-customizable, able to go as far as your imagination and creativity will take it. Wirelessly manipulate effects, launch samples and hot cues, control software, trigger lighting, and more.
Orbit’s embedded MIDI-assignable accelerometer makes your mix follow your motion. Assign any two volume, effect, or filter parameters to Orbit’s shoulder triggers and hang on for the ride. By tilting Orbit left and right or forward and back, you can create sweeping effects and even combine two effects at the same time—just hold down both shoulder triggers and start moving.
"This controller can do, effectively, whatever you want it to and can be mapped and used relatively easily." -DJWorx.com
Orbit’s 16 backlit pads are fully customizable, so you can organize parameters for your style of performance and customize every pad's color to what you prefer. With 4 selectable banks, Orbit’s 16 pads allow you to assign up to 64 hot cues, lighting transitions, video clips, samples, and more. Plus, Orbit’s center aluminum-faced control wheel allows you to assign up to four virtual knobs per bank for a total of 16 parameters.
