Artiphon Orbacam

Artiphon, the creator of Orba, has released Orbacam, a free companion app for the handheld music-making device.

After linking your phone to your Orba device, Artiphon says you can effortlessly “create a musical selfie on the go, add a meditative tone to your morning coffee, or compose the orchestral score for sunset in real-time”. Regardless of your intention, the colourful video you make will be synced automatically with the sounds you trigger on Orba.

Orbacam enables you to flip between Drum, Bass, Chord and Lead modes on Orba. The sounds and visual effects are imprinted directly onto the video, without any need for post-production. Plus, you can easily record audio from your phone’s microphone to layer vocals on your beats, shoot video as you play live, and import videos and photos from your phone to add to the soundtrack.

Artiphon developed Orbacam after seeing thousands of videos created by Orba players. The brand wanted to create a tool that could make creating Orba videos more engaging, without a complicated process. Check out Orbacam in action below.

“We believe that music is always a multisensory experience, and we designed Orbacam as an auditory, visual, and tactile experience that anyone can play immediately,” says Artiphon founder and CEO Mike Butera. “We’ve seen the power of synchronizing music with social content, but almost all of that is just pasting someone else’s song on your video. Now people can create musical videos that are entirely their own.”
