Seaboard Block

ROLI’s Seaboard Block brings the company’s two lines of hardware together. But does it provide the perfect mobile music solution, too, asks Andy Jones?



A few months back, I looked at ROLI’s Blocks, a set of musical devices that act as modular music makers and are designed to open up the world of music making to the masses in a well designed and ingenious way.

RISE, for the uninitiated, is a keyboard like no other. It features Keywaves, which replace standard keyboard keys. You get 12 per octave as on a regular keyboard and you can even play them like a regular keyboard – but you’d be missing out on a few extra dimensions, because what makes RISE stand out is the way you play it.
