What are Stems?
Stems are the isolated audio tracks that make up a fully-produced song. Just the drums or just the vocals, for example. Often, but not always, stems include effects – the vocal processing, for instance – that make a song sound the way it does. Now that stems have arrived on Orba 2, you’ll be able to trigger these isolated song stems with the simple press of a finger.
Kimbra is a lifetime looper. And sampling has been a part of her musical style since her first breakout hit, “Somebody That I Used To Know,” with Gotye. Her use of new musical technologies and highly improvisational musical stylings felt like the perfect combination.
