OrBit by BitLabs

Turning motion into musical expression

Please check out the code base on the GitHub here .

OrBit is a motion-sensing device for musicians and performers. It bridges the gap between acoustic and digital music by connecting you to your favourite digital effects and sounds. Reverb, delay, pitch harmonisers, vocoders, all controlled with your movements.

This product was developed as part of an accelerator-style enterprise development module. I pitched the business and led the team as CEO from idea to preparing a full funding campaign. Check it out here!

My resposibilities included project management and app development. I was working on the desktop client that received sensor and control data from the device, and then relayed it to the digital audio workstation. Furthermore, I built a React Native app that mimicked the physical product in order to showcase the features of OrBit using smartphone sensors and a node.js backend.

Please have a look at the Kickstarter campaign to see how awesome OrBit is. For all you lazy visitors, I have put a a lot of GIFs in the gallery below.
