        Comments about ROLI Seaboard Block Modular Wireless MIDI Touch Interface:

        I was surprised to find out this unit has mini keys. This thing is already difficult to play and with mini keys it is very difficult. It also comes with a watered down version of Equator. No editing or creating your own sounds.

          Comments about ROLI Seaboard Block Modular Wireless MIDI Touch Interface:

          I want to rate this higher. it is a well-built and designed machine. The possibilities for expression are beyond any keyboard I have used. But there's something that makes this keyboard difficult to play. I think it's the silicone coating but sometimes you feel like you're kind of stuck in a position and can't really slide out of it. It also requires far more pressure than feels natural when playing.
          There's also the fact that you have to be precise on pitch as you would with a violin or fretless bass. That can be improved with practice, but I am returning it.
          I suspect a larger seaboard might have a better feel, but that's more shekels than I can spare.
