Roli Seaboard RISE 49 MIDI Controller Overview:
Seaboard RISE 49 is a multi-award-winning, next-generation MIDI controller that gives you unlimited control of sound. A soft, continuous, touch-responsive surface replaces the keys of a traditional keyboard. With expression at your fingertips, a new way of making music is on the RISE.
Every movement is musical
On a piano keyboard you control sound in one way: the force of strike on the keys. The soft silicone keywaves of Seaboard RISE 49 open up a new way to shape sound and make music through Five Dimensions of Touch. These movements are intuitive, so you can quickly start playing with far more expression than ever before.
