Pairing Orbit to the Wireless USB Receiver

If the wireless USB receiver's light is off even when it is connected to your computer, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure Orbit is off and the wireless USB receiver is not connected to a computer.
  2. Press and hold down Pad Bank Selectors 1 and 4, and then power Orbit on.
  3. Press the pad 16. Virtual Knob Selector K1 will flash.
  4. Connect the wireless USB receiver to your computer within 10 seconds. Virtual Knob Selector K2 will flash.
  5. Press pad 12. The Virtual Knob Selectors (K1, K2, K3, and K4) will flash once to indicate Orbit is paired to the wireless USB receiver.

Setting colors to the pads from the Orbit

You can select the color of the light for each pad in each bank, allowing you to color-code your pads or banks to distinguish between their different functions in your software. Orbit's memory is non-volatile, which means it will retain your color settings even after you power Orbit off.

  1. Press and hold down any Pad Bank Selector for 3 seconds, and then press either shoulder button. The Virtual Knob Selectors will flash to indicate Orbit is in Color Selection Mode (and is not currently controlling the software). Release all buttons.
  2. Use the Pad Bank Selectors to select a bank, and then press the pad whose color you want to select. (You can select multiple pads simultaneously. Press a selected pad to deselect it.)
  3. Use the shoulder buttons to cycle through the different available colors, which will be shown in the selected pads.
  4. Press and hold down any Pad Bank Selector, and then press either shoulder button. The Virtual Knob Selectors will stop flashing, and Orbit's new pad color settings will be saved.

Clear/Reset all colors for the pads

  1. Make sure Orbit is off.
  2. Press and hold down Pad Bank Selectors 1 and 4, and then power Orbit on.
  3. Press pad 1. The pad light colors will be reset to their factory defaults.

Check battery level

To check Orbit's battery level, hold down Virtual Knob Selector K1 while unit is on. The 4 Pad Bank Selectors will light up to indicate how much battery power is remaining (when all 4 Pad Bank Selectors are lit, Orbit has a full battery). Release Virtual Knob Selector K1 and wait a few seconds for Orbit to return to normal operation.

Calibrate the accelerometers

  1. Make sure Orbit is off. 
  2. Press and hold down Pad Bank Selectors 1 and 4, and then power Orbit on. 
  3. Press pad 4, this will allow for slight calibration of the on board accelerometers. The unit be sitting on a flat surface. The knob function buttons will indicate progress and flash once the operation is complete.

Factory Reset

  1. Make sure Orbit is off.
  2. Press and hold down Pad Bank Selectors 1 and 4, and then power Orbit on. In User Maintenance Mode, the four PAD BANK buttons will flash red continuously.
  3. Press pad 2 and then pad 1. The four pad bank selectors will stop flashing.
  4. Power off and then on the Orbit. Now all LED and MIDI settings are back to the factory defaults.
