The Seaboard RISE 25 from ROLI is an instrument that lets musicians touch and shape sound, opening up new dimensions of musical expression. Building on the technological breakthroughs of the Seaboard GRAND, the Seaboard RISE is accessible to all music-makers because of its portability and intuitively designed interface. The "Five Dimensions of Touch" allow the instrument to provide the expressiveness of an acoustic instrument combined with the versatility of an electronic one.
The instrument remodels the traditional keyboard as a pressure-sensitive, continuous surface that responds to even the subtlest gestures. Playing on the "keywaves", musicians can shape notes with greater expressiveness, modulating the character of sound in real time with simple movements of the finger. These include striking the keywaves, pressing into them, gliding from left to right along them, or sliding up and down. Its thin design and anodized aluminum chassis makes it easy to carry around, and is designed to withstand the rigors of travel between home, studio, or gigs.
The Seaboard RISE ships with an array of powerful software including the Seaboard Dashboard, Equator, Strobe2, and Bitwig 8-Track. Dashboard is a powerful editor, which allows you to customize how the instrument reacts to the five dimensions of touch. Equator is a software hybrid synthesizer that combines a mix of wavetable oscillators, FM (Frequency Modulation), sample playback, multi-mode filters, and complex signal routing, while Strobe2 from FXpansion features a sophisticated analog modeling engine equipped with Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression (MPE) and offers over 200 presets designed specifically for the Seaboard Rise. Bitwig 8-Track is a dynamic Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) for creation and performance of musical ideas on stage or in the studio. It boasts a multitude of modulators that have deep integration when using the Seaboard RISE.
In addition to MIDI over USB, the instrument uses MIDI over Bluetooth, allowing it to be played wirelessly. Cord-free, the RISE 25 can control Equator on a laptop or desktop computer, or it can work wirelessly with an iPhone through NOISE, the company's mobile sound engine, available for free download from the App Store. The Seaboard RISE 25 ships with a Bespoke storage case and a USB cable.
