The new Donda Stem Player by Kanye West will let you customise any song

Kanye West revealed a new music gadget called the Donda Stem Player that will let you “customise any song,” according to the device’s website. It’s available for preorder now for $200 with a vague release date, though the website says it will ship “with Donda,” West’s upcoming album. The device, which West’s Yeezy Tech brand developed with electronics company Kano, looks like a little tan puck, and it’s apparently made of a “soft silicone blended skin.” It’s equipped with a headphone jack and Bluetooth support (and can do simultaneous Bluetooth and audio jack playback), a USB-C port, volume buttons, speakers, a haptic engine, and 8GB of storage. The four light bars are “touch sensitive light sliders,” which presumably let you control the device to customise songs. It seems like the Donda Stem Player could be a powerful music creation tool packed into a tiny device. The announcement of the Donda Stem Player arrives as West has spent weeks promoting Donda. He’s already hosted two stadium listening parties for the album, and he will be hosting a third at the Soldier Field in Chicago.
