The ROLI Seaboard GRAND is a radically new musical instrument that re-imagines the piano keyboard as a soft, continuous surface and puts expression back at your fingertips
Continuous touchContinuous touch enables you to sound a note and then take it on a musical journey; modulating volume and timbre through one continuous motion. The Seaboard GRAND’s keywaves offer precise tactile feedback, making it easy to sense the slightest change in pressure, resulting in a far more organic experience than traditional aftertouch.
Intuitive pitch controlAdjusting pitch is as natural on the Seaboard GRAND as it is on a stringed instrument. Slide a finger to the left to lower the pitch of a note; slide it to the right to raise it. The smooth feel of the playing surface lets you easily glide from one keywave to the next, or apply a natural vibrato to any note.
Glissando ribbonsUnique, low-friction ribbons run along both the top and the bottom of the Seaboard GRAND’s playing surface. They make it easy to start playing one keywave, then slide to any other keywave you choose in one fluid gesture, even allowing multiple notes to glissando independently at the same time.
Equator software synthesizer and sound engineEquator is a powerful software synthesizer that unlocks the full potential of the Seaboard GRAND’s expressive capabilities. Use intuitive Strike, Bend, and Press gestures to control multiple parameters on each note, completely independently. Tailor each gesture’s response to your own unique playing style using customizable transfer curves. Together, Seaboard GRAND and Equator form a seamlessly integrated software and hardware experience that will spark creativity for producers, performers, and sound designers alike.
