At this year's NAMM 2023, Sonic State met Adam from Artiphon to discuss their latest product, the Orba 2. The major upgrade from Orbit 1 is the built-in sample engine, which enables users to add real sounds like acoustic guitars, pianos, and audio files from real songs onto the device itself. Artiphon has added a new level of automation with song stems, and full audio patterns so anyone can grab a handful of notes, choose when and how to play, and mix and match different sounds to bring their music to life.
Artiphon has collaborated with New Zealand artist Kimbra taking the stems from her latest single, "Replay," and turning them into playable Orba 2 presets. The company has made all of the different sounds, including the work they've done with Kimbera and other artists, available for free in the Orba 2 app.
