Did the Mobius do Hz/V?

This Orb looked kinda cool at first to use with my MS' but doesn't say anything about Hz/V. Price kind of kills it for me too. Might as well just wait and buy a kenton to use with something else or maybe Volta gets made for Win.

the Mobius does both hz/v and v/oct. i just scanned over the Orb's manual and saw no mention of hz/v.

That's gonna look just right next to my XS. Was hoping for more tracks, but still, at least I know there's some more XSories on the way.

Very nice. I was hoping for a multi-track sequencer as well - basically a multi-track mobius. However, as an owner of two R2's, I can tell you that this sequencer is a lot of fun to use and provides immediate gratification.

I'm a little surprised by the price, though.

Does this thing do anything that the R2 doesn't?

Has the synth removed for the ultimate in low-noise signal path. Also fits into a box that's too small for the R2 to fit into, and has spherical buttons. :thumbright:

Wow, looks great, is small, and priced ok... too bad I don't need one. It is beautiful. Did the Mobius have remix functions?

No, the Mobius and 777 had been tapped out power wise.
Jared was going to add the remix function to them (via another os upgrade of course) but simply couldn't.

Then, that is one thing the Orb offers that the Mobius doesn't...but doesn't have din sync. I think it is nice. I bet you'll be able to get these for less than $500 at some stores. Racks blow...I'd pay the extra $100 for a non rack. Will this work with a Roland SH-101?

Looks nice and small, I would be all over it to replace one of my Revolutions, except for the price :-(

If it had some general purpose MIDI control knobs on it, it might be a little more tempting, I guess I'll wait and see what the used price shakes out to be...

I agree with most here...
Looks cool. But price sucks.

I wish it had a "trigger in" jack, like an SH-101.
I've been waiting for a someone to create a nice all around sequencer with that function in it...
and it be affordable.
This orb still looks cool. I see MANY uses in my studio...
I might get one, but I'd like to pay about 150 to 200 dollars less.
