Roli Seaboard RISE 49
The future of the keyboard - Make music in more dimensions
Designed for ultimate expression
A revolutionary, touch-sensitive interface and a powerful, custom-built synthesizer, seamlessly integrated to open possibilities for expression that are unprecedented on a MIDI controller.
Pliable, pressure-sensitive keywaves take the place of keys on a traditional keyboard. The sensor-embedded keywave surface lets you shape sound through touch. Three faders let you fine-tune the responsiveness of the surface to touch.
You can control sound and make music through Five Dimensions of Touch: striking the keywaves, pressing into them, gliding sideways along them, sliding up and down the keywaves, and lifting off.
Using MIDI over Bluetooth, the Seaboard RISE works wirelessly, helping you take it wherever you wish to make music. Each controller comes with a custom-made carrying case.
The Seaboard RISE comes with Equator, ROLI’s custom-built software synthesizer and sound engine, and it’s compatible with range of DAWs across OS X and Windows platforms.
Touch sound with intuitive ease
Delightfully tactile and responsive, the Seaboard RISE’s sensor-embedded keywave surface lets you shape sound through touch. Press continuously into the silicone surface, move your fingers from side to side, slide them up the keywaves or along the ribbons. Each movement modulates sound with intuitive ease. Put at your fingertips the expressiveness of an acoustic instrument and the sonic range of an electronic instrument - all on a keyboard interface.
The Seaboard RISE is battery-powered and the first multidimensional controller to use MIDI over Bluetooth. Free yourself from wires, and make music anywhere within range of your connected device.
Battery life of up to 8 hours.
