ROLI BLOCKS
ROLI have introduced a groundbreaking device that lets the user create music on the go wherever they are, whenever they are. The ROLI BLOCK is able to fit neatly into your hand or pocket and can be used to generate a vast variety of sounds. To be used in conjunction with the free iOS app BLOCKS to NOISE, you are able to explore an array of different effects and tones at the lightest touch of your fingertip. With over 100 sounds available on the app, the user can record loops making the process of making a track that much easier.

Able to be arranged in a number of different configurations, the ROLI BLOCKS are connected via magnets, meaning the more blocks that are attached to one another the more sounds the user will have at their disposal.

At the centre of the new BLOCKS system is the light pad Block, a smooth and pressure responsive surface that reacts to the users touch. Through ROLI BLOCKS mesmerising glowing exterior, the user can expect an easy and practical playing experience in which they are visually guided towards specific musical gestures and notes.

Marketed at beginners and professionals alike, ROLI BLOCKS have garnered critical acclaim from across the globe. Revered synth pop artist Grimes stated her opinion on the inclusive properties of the revolutionary new device:

"ROLI BLOCKS will democratize music production. It's so intuitive and versatile. I'm always on the go, and BLOCKS is the most powerful production tool I've ever used."

Persistently altering peoples perception upon music and how it is created, ROLI continue to pave the path to creative enlightenment with avant-garde instruments that allow for a whole new dimension of expression. BLOCKS have opened a plethora of doors and creative options for musicians everywhere, altering how we think about making music forever.
