orbital is an experiment in simple sequences and interface design, it was created to learn Lua scripting for norns
orbital was created to get the basics of Lua down, and to fill time while the norns shipped. this first, pre-release version is a single 16 step sequence using PolyPerc. the next updates will see the code tidied, more sequences, the ability to change the steps and bpm per sequence, and my own engines. the inspiration came from a pencil and some IPA. I drew a circle, it looked like it would make a fun interface. I do like watching it go round. I also wanted to learn more trig.
you only need the norns.
it’s simple and documentation is on the readme on GitHub. my website is down because, well, updating PHP killed it. I’ll update when it goes live, it’ll have more images of the development including all the failed trig attempts
