USB MIDI Keyboard Controller/Open-Ended Interactive Surface with 25 Keywaves

The Seaboard RISE 25 from ROLI is an instrument that lets musicians touch and shape sound, opening up new dimensions of musical expression. Building on the technological breakthroughs of the Seaboard GRAND, the Seaboard RISE is accessible to all music-makers because of its portability and intuitively designed interface. The "Five Dimensions of Touch" allow the instrument to provide the expressiveness of an acoustic instrument combined with the versatility of an electronic one.

The instrument remodels the traditional keyboard as a pressure-sensitive, continuous surface that responds to even the subtlest gestures. Playing on the "keywaves", musicians can shape notes with greater expressiveness, modulating the character of sound in real time with simple movements of the finger. These include striking the keywaves, pressing into them, gliding from left to right along them, or sliding up and down. Its thin design and anodized aluminum chassis makes it easy to carry around, and is designed to withstand the rigors of travel between home, studio, or gigs.

Included with the instrument is Equator, a software hybrid synthesizer that combines a mix of wavetable oscillators, FM (Frequency Modulation), sample playback, multimode filters, and complex signal routing. In addition to MIDI over USB, the instrument uses MIDI over Bluetooth, allowing it to be played wirelessly. Cord-free, the RISE 25 can control Equator on a laptop or desktop computer, or it can work with an iPhone through NOISE, the company's mobile sound engine, available for free download from the App Store.

A revolutionary interface
Pliable, pressure-sensitive keywaves take the place of keys on a traditional keyboard. The sensor-embedded keywave surface lets you shape sound through touch. Three faders let you fine-tune the responsiveness of the surface to touch.

5D Touch
You can control sound and make music through Five Dimensions of Touch: striking the keywaves, pressing into them, gliding sideways along them, sliding up and down the keywaves, and lifting off.

Wireless and portable
Using MIDI over Bluetooth, the Seaboard RISE works wirelessly, helping you take it wherever you wish to make music. Each controller comes with a custom-made carrying case.

25 or 49 keywaves
The Seaboard RISE is available in two keywave models, the two-octave RISE 25 and the four-octave RISE 49. This offers maximum versatility for Creators to bring Five Dimensions of Touch to the stage as well as the studio.
