"This is easily one of the best and most interesting MIDI controllers out there for iOS and Mac at that price”.

Priced at £279.95 inc VAT, the ROLI Seaboard Block is by far the most affordable model of a must-have music-making tool for the contemporary musician. Fitting easily in a backpack and connecting to ROLI’s free mobile app NOISE, it is the most accessible ROLI Seaboard ever made. 

"there has never been a better time than now to upgrade from a basic keyboard to a multi-dimensional Seaboard."

"The level of detail it allows for in terms of velocity on a given note or chord is amazing. You can strike down aggressive, high velocity notes or gently grab a subtle/quiet chord and slowly press harder into the gooey rubber surface until the sound envelopes your entire space. Or, even more impressively, do that just in your left hand while sliding and gliding the pitch of notes in your right without effecting the others! You really have to try it for yourself, but I was very impressed."

"The physical design of the machine is great. Robust and sturdy enough to handle my aggressive and relentless drum fingers as much as it is capable of some of the most expressive and subtle passages I have come up with. I also love the idea that any of the other interesting Blocks hardware devices will work with it seamlessly, not to mention the ability to link together multiple Seaboard Blocks at once. Even two of these cost less than the next model in the lineup, so the future expandability will be nice for some users."
