The ROLI Seaboard Block Combines 5D Touch With Simplified Beatmaking
ROLI has recently unveiled the Seaboard Block, a hybrid of both their 5D Seaboard RISE MIDI controller and ROLI Blocks modular MIDI controllers. The Seaboard Block combines the expressiveness of both devices into a single, condensed and affordable MIDI controller.
- 5D Touch technology
- 24 keywave, two octave playing surface
- 100+ free sounds
- Software bundle: NOISE, Equator Player, BLOCKS Dashboard, MaxMSP
- Wireless and portable
- Connects to other Blocks
There are currently four BLOCKS available, each of which serving their own distinct purpose: Lightpad Block, Live Block, Loop Block and Touch Block. Any of these BLOCKS can be attached to the Seaboard Block to maximize the creative potential of the multi-touch controller, such as manipulating response parameters with the Touch Block or adjusting loops with the Loop Block.
One of our favorite of these BLOCKS is the Lightpad, as it inherits the 5D touch functionality of the Rise in a miniature, portable device. It also comes with a wide variety of sounds designed specifically for Lightpad, spanning over an extensive range of genres.
The Seaboard Block is currently priced at 299.95 USD, and you can visit the produce site to learn more.
