"It manages to be fun, inspirational and esoteric all at the same time, and seems to expand (or even explode) musical horizons in a way that few other electronic instruments do".
The Seaboard RISE is a universally accessible, expressive MIDI controller. It features patented SEA Interface technology, which remodels the keyboard as a pressure-sensitive, continuous surface that responds to even the subtlest gestures. Playing on its unique “keywaves,” musicians shape notes with unprecedented expressiveness, modulating the character of sound in real time with simple movements of the finger. Sound On Sound magazine review the Seaboard RISE in the February issue of the magazine.
"Most keyboard players would have to be made of wood, I think, not to be excited, or at least intrigued, by what ROLI’s Seaboards offer."
"Meanwhile, at that hugely more accessible £599 price tag, it seems that nothing has been lost in the build quality department. USB powering is great to see, while the battery–supported Bluetooth MIDI is a real luxury. You even get a nice expanded-polypropylene case, and an iPad–style flip cover is now available as an optional extra for particularly nomadic users."
“...ROLI’s Rise is surely one of the most exciting, progressive and potent MIDI controllers ever made”.
