Songmaker Kit

Ultimate song-making instrument

RRP: £549.95 inc VAT

Play any style of song, anywhere with the Songmaker Kit, an integrated instrument formed of three powerful Blocks. Combine the expressive power of the Seaboard Block, Lightpad M and Loop Block to gain unlimited control of sound.


Seaboard Block

Create astonishingly expressive music on a next-generation keyboard. Seaboard Block replaces a traditional keyboard with a soft, pressure-responsive surface that lets you touch and shape your sound.

Seaboard Block comes with a huge library of sounds from string sections to glitched-out synths. Access your sounds on either mobile or desktop through included software, and add to your collection by purchasing soundpacks from renowned artists like Steve Aoki, RZA, and WondaGurl.

The smallest, more portable, most versatile, and most accessibly priced Seaboard ever made, Seaboard Block is the latest evolution of ROLI’s multi-award-winning Seaboard technology.

Lightpad M

Lightpad M is the updated version of ROLI’s award-winning Lightpad Block. Its redesigned interface allows for even more precise and expressive playing. Dimpled with 225 micro-keywaves, the new Lightpad Block enhances the extraordinary tactile feedback of the original for an altogether more responsive playing experience. Designed to control any sound from drums to cinematic atmospheres, Lightpad M comes with an expanded suite of software including Equator Player and the Tracktion Waveform and Ableton Live Lite digital audio workstations.

Loop Block

The controls help you set your tempo, record loops, and quantize your loops so they snap in time with the tempo.

Software Bundle

A powerful suite of software for any music maker.

The Songmaker Kit comes with a suite of high-powered music production programs. Whether you’re crafting your next masterpiece or just beginning to shape your sound, the perfect tools are right at your fingertips.
