The ROLI Seaboard RISE is not just a MIDI controller or synth, it's a futuristic performance and recording device that can open up more worlds and sounds through your imagination. As the world's first truly accessible expressive controller, the Seaboard RISE moves from a unidimensional device like most keyboards to a multidimensional level. Paired with Equator, the Seaboard's powerful software synthesizer, the Seaboard RISE unlocks unprecedented creative possibilities for contemporary musicians in a joyfully-crafted evolution of the keyboard.
Utilizing a sensor-embedded "keywave" surface that is incredibly soft and sensitive, this controller responds to the subtlest movements, allowing the performer to map 5 dimensions of tough (5D Touch) to sound. The range of gestural control is the source of the instrument's multidimensional expressiveness.
The 5D Touch is:
Strike: The velocity at which a finger strikes a keywave
Press: The pressure applied to the keywave after the initial Strike
Glide: Horizontal left and right movements for pitch bend, vibrato, and glissando
Slide: Vertical movements up and down a keywave to control a variety of filters
Lift: The velocity at which a finger lifts off a keywave
