Delivering 5D touch technology to your iPhone and desktop is the Roli Lightpad Block. This 15 x 15 LED matrix instrument delivers a powerful new way for you to create music. Powered by the free iOS NOISE app and sporting bluetooth connectivity and a rechargeable battery, the Lightpad Block lets you take creative power anywhere.
Responsive and durable
The Roli Lightpad Block may be of a small size but its build quality is typical of what you would expect from Roli. The multi-coloured 225 LED's are all covered by a silicone layer with a durable, smooth urethane coating. This not only keeps the Lightpad safe but also makes it respond to your taps, glides, presses, and other gestures with lightening fast accuracy and finesse.
The illuminated surface also acts as a guide to help you to find notes and shape sounds so that you can get creative as soon as you get it out of the box. Special modes also help you learn, play in tune, and stay in time whilst you get to grips with the Lightpad.
The power of Noise
The Lightpad Block connects wirelessly with NOISE, the free app compatible with all iOS 9 or higher devices such as the iPhone 6, so you can choose a sound on NOISE and play it on the Lightpad Block instantly. Experimentation will lead you to new and exciting music that you wont believe is generated by your iPhone. The Lightpad also works alongside your desktop apps such as Equator, GarageBand, Logic, Max, and more – any app that supports multidimensional polyphonic expression (MPE).
Finally, the Roli Lightpad Block can also be used in conjunction with the Live and Loop blocks to further increase the power of this already very capable unit. To make quality digital music without limits in the palm of your hand, check out the innovative Roli Lightpad Block today.
