PMT is proud to be a leading UK stockist for ROLI's innovative Seaboard Keywave Controllers and the BLOCKS ecosystem.
Since their conception back in 2009, London-based ROLI has produced some of the most hotly-anticipated music technology products in recent history.
By re-thinking the way modern musicians approach beat-making and songwriting on the move, Roli has established themselves at the forefront of music technology innovation.
Roli's patented 'Keywave' synthesizer keybed has proven to be a radical change from traditional synth action and hammer-action keyboards, providing a much more dynamic playing experience. Consisting of the ROLI Seaboard Rise 25 and Rise 49 models, as well as the smaller Seaboard Block, these keybeds are smooth and respond to the subtle nuances of your hands as you play.
The Roli Seaboard’s polyphonic pitch bend, vibrato and per-note dynamic changes are all available at your fingertips, marrying the intuitiveness of a traditional instrument with the versatility of digital technology. ROLI has brought together years of innovation in several disciplines to realise this powerful concept as an award-winning product.
Combined with digital connectivity to dedicated ROLI synth plug-ins and software library, the Seaboard Series are on the cutting edge of MIDI Keyboard innovation.
ROLI Blocks expanded the ecosystem by allowing a completely mobile, iOS-friendly music-making experience like no other. Blocks consist of a modular sequencer and phrase looper small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. With a colourful touch-sensitive surface, the ROLI Lightpad Block M is great for younger students learning how to make music from scratch, but also for seasoned songwriters or anyone with an interest in music technology.
The new Roli Live and ROLI Loop blocks allow you to build out a custom, modular production setup small enough to fit in your pocket. By opening up Loops and Sequencing to the Lightpad Block, you can utilise the BLOCKS ecosystem as a fun, intuitive, mobile songwriting tool.
If you're after an all-in-one Kit - check out the ROLI Songmaker Kit which features the Seaboard Block, Lightpad Block and Loop Block in one package. Everything you need to create ideas and loops anywhere.
These instruments are part of ROLI's Connected Music ecosystem, which includes a range of hardware and software products.
Equator, Roli's software synthesizer and sound engine, helps musicians create multidimensional sounds on the Seaboard. Blend, the cloud-based social platform, lets music-makers share and remix tracks with anyone in the world. JUCE, the leading C++ framework for audio applications, provides the building blocks for Equator and many other applications.
Finally, Roli's NOISE is a free iOS app that turns iPhones and iPads into musical instruments.
