Using ROLI's unique keywave technology, the ROLI Seaboard RISE 25 provides new levels of touch interaction with your keyboard. Achieve vibrato and pitchbend with your own dynamic touch, rather than the use of a modulation wheel. Slide between notes with the smooth keywave surface Combine striking with both gliding and sliding to create and shape music like never before. The 5 dimensional touch control opens you up to a whole range of expressive playing, not possible on standard keyboards. Strike the soft touch pads as usual to play notes, or slide up and down them to modulate a sound with brightness, cutoff, or volume. The RISE 25 provides you with more control than ever with you fingertips. Create more natural sounds with virtual instruments such as the striking, sliding and vibrato of a guitar and more with just your fingers.
Parameters can be mapped to unique gestures and touches on the Seaboard RISE 25. Tracks can be performed and recorded with many details that would previously have been achieved only with post production.
The RISE 25 has been designed for portability. Combined with Bluetooth technology for a wireless experience, and a compact and light weight design, the Seaboard RISE 25 allows you to make music wherever you are. An internal battery provides up to 8 hours of continuous play so whether you're stuck in the airport, at a park, studio or on stage, the RISE 25 is the perfect companion for the on-the-move producer and performer enabling you to play and produce anywhere.
Connect the ROLI Seaboard RISE 25 to a huge variety of hardware and software synths, across USB or Bluetooth MIDI. Using ROLI's keywave technology, you can simulate the dynamic range of a traditional acoustic instrument with your favourite synth. Trackpads and faders can be customised to help you personalise your favourite synth patches.
The ROLI Seaboard Rise 25 comes with Equator, a revolutionary software synthesizer. With a huge library of preset sounds already included with Equator you can plug in and start creating ground breaking music in no time at all. With everything from realistic and dynamic instruments to surreal and weird synth sounds Equator puts the power and creativity in your hands right from the word go. Additionally the extensive multidimensional modulation capabilities such as the tweakable envelopes, LFOs, EQ, oscillators, effects and wave dynamics mean you never have to settle for a sound again.
The Seaboard RISE 25 removes all the clutter, knobs, wheels and cords, and instead replaces functions with a simpler interface based on one thing, touch. No need to worry about breaking knobs or faders breaking off, instead the RISE 25 offers touch for all parameters including faders, preset browsing, XY touchpad and the smooth keywave surface providing a beautiful, simplified and wireless design.
