Donda Stem Player
TO Kanye west It could be defined in multiple ways, and virtually all of them would be equally accurate. Because he gets into a multitude of arenas ranging from music, for what he really is or should be known for, to politics or entrepreneurship.
Well, it is from that last facet as an entrepreneur that this curious device comes from. The Donda Stem Player It is a device created by the Yeezy Tech brand of Kanye West and the electronics company Kano. The basis or idea of this gadget is to allow “Customize” any song, but before we tell you how let’s talk about the product physically.
The first thing is to talk about the form factor. The player is circular in shape, similar to what could be a bar of soap and the outer part is made of silicone. A very characteristic finish, although it may make a lot of sense for what the device itself is.
Along with that finish, the player incorporates a USB C connector and a headphone jack. In addition to this, there are several buttons for controlling playback and volume. But the controls that really matter are the four touch bars that in turn light up and are in what we could consider as the front of the device.
These will be, in theory, controls that will allow you to customize the songs. Because the purpose or the particularity of this player is that, since as a player today there are many options and one that always goes with you: your smartphone.
For the rest, little to add beyond the internal battery that is charged through the USB C socket and also serves for data transfer. So now let’s talk about the technical characteristics.
The player includes a speaker, haptic engine, 8GB of storage, and support for a wide range of audio formats ranging from AIFF to ALAC, MP3, MP4, WAV, AAC, etc. And yes, it has Bluetooth connectivity. So you can output wirelessly to compatible speakers while also outputting the audio signal from the headphone jack.
How the Donda Stem Player works
Knowing the product on a physical level and its characteristics, how does Donda Stem Player work? Well, here comes the really curious thing, because the idea or the promise that it makes is that you can customize any song. Depending on the manufacturer, you can:

Interesting right? It is basically having a mixer in your hand with which you can control what is playing in real time. Logically, those who have no idea about mixing music may not get anything really interesting, or yes. Because it does not seem very complex, something else will be the taste of each one and experience to know when to isolate the voice, vary the rhythm or create a loop.
