The game has changed

Comments about Roli Seaboard Rise Midi Controller:

ROLI has revolutionized one of the most convenient tools we as musicians use, the MIDI controller! ROLI's Seaboard rise MIDI controller has silicon keys that acts as a smooth surface rather than individual keys. The controller is extremely sensitive to the movements in your hand enabling you to control the character of the pitch in your fingers! They may be onto something.

Comments about Roli Seaboard Rise Midi Controller:

Roli hopped on the scene with quite the revolutionary take on controllers. Instead of individual keys this controller feels like one fluid board that allows for quick sound modulations that give its user endless possibilities. With the wag of ur finger on a key you can engage a vibrato which adds a new level to your playing. This is a must have.

    This is a game changer in the world of midi controllers, Roli has truly come up with a one of a kind product here. The silicone keys will actually react to every move of your fingers and it will be captured in your performance. Every key has the ability to do multiple functions based on how you map it with their included software. If you are serious about your production you need to own this.

    An Innovative, Tactile Experience

    Comments about Roli Seaboard Rise Midi Controller:

    This is the most interesting and truly NEW feeling MIDI controller to come to the market in a very long time. Touch-sensitivity control on a keyboard set up MIDI controller is just too cool and entirely too much fun! As a piano player, I have had so much fun experimenting with this controller and have barely even scratched the surface of it's capabilities. This controller has such sensitive controls that like a traditional keyboard, how you strike the keys can produce not only different volumes but different tones and intensities too. The pre-installed tones are extremely life-like, even the woodwinds which is rare to find! It is ultra-sleek, being less than 1" thick which just lends so well to taking it pretty much anywhere. My favorite feature is that the Seaboard is battery powered and Bluetooth capable so you aren't limited to sitting at your desk to compose and produce. The Seaboard is also compatible with a huge selection of software and other synthesizers, making this an easy to integrate, tons of fun to use and innovative way to bring new life to your recording studio. Too cool. Must have.

    Comments about Roli Seaboard Rise Midi Controller:

    I have a customer who purchased one of these, told me all about, so I had to check it out for myself. WOW! This changes your current keyboard into an endless, fluid motion of creativity. It has a learning curve, but it can be used with VST's, HUI's and a variety of keys. It is both uSB and bluetooth capable and works with a variety of software as well. Kind of reminds me of a theremin in how you can manipulate sounds. Very cool. With what he showed me (and what I could do) it was awe inspiring to say the least

    Comments about Roli Seaboard Rise Midi Controller:

    I am a predominantly a left hand player. There is no keyboard in world today that has pitch bend and mod wheel on the right side of the keys. I always struggled playing melodies with bends. When I saw the Roli I was excited and got one. However it has a steep learning curve. Spent a few weeks working on it. Works with its own soft synth but it doesnt work properly with Kontak or Sample Tank or other Samplers. It held a lot of promise but didnt measure up. The guys who play this in the Demo seem to spin magic but for lesser mortals its not the same. Perhaps in the future when the software improves and other VST manufacturers adopt this standard then I would try this again.
