Roli Seaboard Rise 49

Getting your hands on the Roli Seaboard Rise 49 keyboard controller is like experiencing a new instrument for the first time, albeit one that will feel familiar to any keyboardist or pianist. A squishy keybed with 49 “Keywaves” is more sensitive to your touch than any traditional keyboard ever was and offers polyphonic pitch bend and aftertouch. Slide notes like a cellist, add vibrato like a guitarist, and make tonal changes on a per note basis, either with the included Equator software synthesizer or your own favorite software instruments. You’ll be able to create more depth and dynamic interest in your performances than ever before with the Roli Seaboard Rise 49.

Every movement is musical

On a piano keyboard you control sound in one way: the force of strike on the keys. The soft silicone keywaves of Seaboard RISE 49 open up a new way to shape sound and make music through Five Dimensions of Touch. These movements are intuitive, so you can quickly start playing with far more expression than ever before.

Polyphonic pitch bend and aftertouch enhance any performance

With the Roli Seaboard Rise you can strike a chord, then bend the pitch of just a single note. Or add pressure to a single note to add modulation, while other notes remain unaffected. It’s this level of expression that allows you to perform with more dynamics and nuance than you ever could with a typical keyboard. For the one-person composer/orchestrator/performer, it can enable you to quickly add expressive lifelike interpretations to your group or solo instrument samples.

Slide notes just as with a ribbon controller

Because the Seaboard Rise’s Keywaves all flow together, you can actually slide between notes like you can on a fretless instrument. Just hit one note, slide your finger along the Keywaves, and the note will glide right along. And the flat area in front of the Keywaves acts as a ribbon controller, allowing you to play notes and slide between them.

Comes with Equator synthesizer designed specifically for Seaboard

Along with the Seaboard Rise, you’ll receive Roli’s Equator software synthesizer, a custom instrument that takes advantage of the Seaboard’s advanced expressive capabilities. Browse hundreds of presets directly from the Seaboard using the SoundDial, from realistic pianos and guitars to evocative pads and extreme synth leads. And of course, you can use the Seaboard Rise as a controller for all of your other virtual instruments, too.
