Artiphon’s Orbacam expands the popular Orba instrument into a creative multimedia studio. Orba players can link their phones and begin transforming their songs into augmented video creations. Orbacam lets players lay down multilayer loops and enhance their videos with musically reactive visual effects.
Orbacam lets you 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. The results are colorful, highly-shareable musical videos that sync automatically with whatever you’re playing on Orba.
Orbacam was inspired by Orba users themselves. As Artiphon’s team saw thousands of social videos created by Orba players—from overjoyed kids to experienced influencers, producers, and musicians—they wondered what they could do to make the process even easier and more engaging. So, they developed Orbacam to expand the multimedia capabilities of the already beloved instrument.
With Orbacam, it’s easy to jump between Drum, Bass, Chord, and Lead modes. The sounds and visual effects are baked right into the video export, no audio routing or post-production required. You can even mix in your phone’s microphone to sing or rap over your beat, shoot video as you play live, or import videos and photos from your camera roll to add a soundtrack after the fact.
See Orbacam in action here, and download the app at artiphon.com/downloads. The app will be free at launch for Orba users.
In addition to Orba and Orbacam, Artiphon’s highly intuitive instruments include a recent collaboration with Snap on an AR lens called Scan Band. Artiphon imagines music-making as an activity that fits into everyone’s lives, no matter their level of ambition or skill.
