Here to revolutionise the way you control your virtual instruments is the Roli Seaboard Rise. With its five dimension touch-technology comprised of strike, glide, slide, press and lift, the Seabord Rise blows the lid off any limitations of expressive playing and will have a huge impact on your production and performances.
Unlike traditional controllers where the hard keys respond to velocity and aftertouch, the Seaboard Rise utilises 'keywaves' made from a smooth moulded silicone fixed on top of pressure-sensitive controls. This allows you to manipulate timbre and pitch in ways that we've never been able to experience before. Once you begin to use the Seaboard to capacity, you'll never perform music the same way again.
Powerful software... Included!
The Seaboard Rise comes bundled with an arsenal of software that can be run on any PC or Mac with over 4GB of Ram and an i5 spec or above processor. Equator - Roli's flagship synthesis software is custom-made for controlling and editing sound with Five Dimensions of Touch. With hundreds of preset sounds and the ability to create limitless instruments, you'll wonder how you managed without it.
Also included is the Strobe2 sophisticated analogue modelling engine loaded with hugely expressive sounds and effects, the Bitwig 8-track digital audio workstation with its own library of sounds and ability to record professional grade tracks, Traktion Waveform to capture visual data which aids beginner Seaboard players and empowers professionals. Finally is the Seaboard Dashboard, a handy plugin making the Seaboard Rise compatible with all major DAW software packages.
Total Wireless Freedom
The Seaboard Rise can be connected to your computer via a single USB that will also provide power to the unit, very handy for live shows or long production periods where the Rise may stay in situ for some time. However owing to the built-in Bluetooth technology and the 11-hour internal battery you can have total wireless freedom. Sit back in your studio, turn the lights down and begin to create with five dimensions.
Seldom does a controller disrupt tradition on the scale that the Roli Seaboard Rise has. Take all of the limits off of your playing and music production and create the soundtrack to your dreams.
