Overview

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:

      This is an incredible device. Takes time to learn the feel of the keywaves but you can show so much expression when playing. Haven't used in a live setting yet just in the studio but realize that this will not replace my keyboard controller for normal keyboard playing. I would like to see Equator include more conventional sounds such as woodwinds (tenor sax), brass, solo string instruments, and more guitar voices instead of me having to buy additional vsts from a 3rd party. I am more of a conventional sounds type player and don't use many synth type voices but Equator has tons of those if needed. Equator and Dashboard seem fairly straight forward and was easy for me to learn. Hopefully Roli will continue to add to the sound library in Equator. Would also like to see apps for Android devices in the future. This thing seems built like a tank and works well with different DAWs. It has been really good for creating natural sounding guitar parts in recordings. First keyboard I ever purchased that included a nice padded case. Thank you Roli.

        Comments about ROLI Seaboard RISE 49:

        The Seaboard RISE is unlike anything else I've ever had the pleasure to play. It has the familiarity of a traditional keyboard, but is so much more. You honesty have to play one to really understand what I'm talking about. It is much like playing a brand new kind of instrument! = )

            already own the Seaboard Rise 25 and loved it but wanted more keys and had considered purchasing a second Rise 25, but then the 49 came out. To top it off a Guitar Center Discount Coupon made the decision even easier as I want to use both as a dual manual setup. Awesome to say the least.
