OVERVIEW

The groundbreaking Seaboard Rise, now in a 49-keywave design.

The acclaimed Seaboard RISE is now available as a 49-keywave controller with a four-octave playing surface. The Seaboard RISE 49 retains all the features of the breakthrough original version. A revolutionary MIDI controller that is exceptionally intuitive and easy to use, the Seaboard RISE from ROLI is the ultimate form of expression. With a variety of touch gestures, MIDI over Bluetooth, and endless possibilities, it's no wonder there's so much buzz about this unique keyboard controller.

A new 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 RISE 49 works wirelessly, helping you take your controller wherever you wish to make music. That is now even easier with NOISE, the iPhone app that works as a mobile sound engine for the Seaboard RISE.

Now with 49 keywaves
The playing surface of the RISE 49 is twice the size of the RISE 25. The four octaves of the playing surface can be extended through the octave shift button.

Your favorite software
Equator, ROLI’s software synthesizer and sound engine, is bundled with every RISE 49, giving you granular control of sound in multiple dimensions. The RISE 49 is also compatible with a wide range of software across OS X and Windows platforms. Bitwig 8-Track is included with every RISE 49 so you can record and edit your music right out of the box.

Take it anywhere
The custom-made Soft Case, included with every RISE 49, helps you carry it between home, studio, cafe, and gig. NOISE takes the mobility of the RISE 49 to a whole new level.

    Comments about ROLI Seaboard RISE 49:

    I ordered your product and was unable to use it. I ordered your product used and couldn't use it due to software conflicts. Ther. Prior owner used the device returning it. The device shouldn't be offered for sale if the software is unavailable to the next purchaser. Your support team simply stated it was difficult in reaching Roli. The other individual suggested that I call the company to figure out the problem. As a professional musician you guys should prepare a full package that is what I'm paying to receive. Terrible Terrible, Terrible business. That's my full response to your survey/ request.

      First time buying a class 3 item but the price was too good. I've wanted a roli for as long as I saw it and to see the 49 at that price was a no Brainer.

      Comments about ROLI Seaboard RISE 49:

      Pros: A superbly designed revolutionary instrument, brings the expressive capabilities of the most capable acoustic instruments and beyond to electronic music. Super fun to play! The included soft-instrument, "Equator" is superb and organic sounding, and offers detailed scaling of expression parameters. Solid build. Very portable, comes with soft case.
      Cons: Does not provide anything in the way of expression scaling for controlling third party instruments. MIDI controller only, no built in sounds. Although it has power supply input, it does not come with a power supply, making it difficult to reliably connect to a mobile device. Dismissive customer support.

        Comments about ROLI Seaboard RISE 49:

        The Seaboard Rise is an incredibly expressive instrument using MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression) technology. It was quite easy for me to become accustomed to the playing surface and I was able play without thinking about technique in a short period of time. Coupled with the MPE software that is included, this keyboard is at the top of the heap as far as expressiveness and sound manipulation. What impresses me most is the ability to play with both hands on the key pad (or wave table) and not having to reach for mod wheels or knobs to manipulate the sound; but if you need to, your left hand can quickly and easily modify how the wavetable responds to your expressive needs, be it filters, velocity, pitch bend, filter changes, etc.

        I bought the 49 key version because I keep it in my home studio, but if I wanted to be more mobile the 25 key would probably be my choice. It is nice though to not have to switch octaves all the time.

        Love this incredible instrument.

          Comments about ROLI Seaboard RISE 49:

          I'm really liking this Seaboard RISE 49. Not hard to get used to if you're a keyboard player, but it is much different than a typical keyboard. I tried the Seaboard BLOCK, but the Seaboard RISE 49 is much more solid with a better build quality and the larger keywaves make it easier to play. I find that I'm not using my other conventional keyboard controllers as much now. Also, the free ROLI Equator synth is an excellent sounding instrument matched perfectly for the Seaboard.
