Since their conception back in 2008, London-based ROLI have produced some of the most hotly anticipated music technology products in recent history.
Their 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.
Combined with digital connectivity to dedicated ROLI synth plug-ins and software library, the Seaboard Series are on the cutting edge of music production technology and new musical ideas.
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.
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 Block system are great for younger students learning how to make music from scratch, but also for seasoned songwriters looking for inspiration on the move.
These instruments are part of ROLI's Connected Music ecosystem, which includes a range of hardware and software products. Equator, its 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.
