ROLI bundles Seaboard Block, Lightpad M and Loop Block into new Songmaker Kit

ROLI and UK distributor Sound Technology have launched the Songmaker Kit.

The new ROLI kit lets users snap together the award-winning Seaboard Block, Lightpad Block, and Loop Block to create a powerful, integrated instrument.

The ROLI Songmaker Kit Includes:

Seaboard Block

Seaboard Block replaces a traditional keyboard with a soft, pressure-responsive surface that lets you touch and shape your sound.

Seaboard Block comes with a huge library of sounds from string sections to glitched-out synths. Access your sounds on either mobile or desktop through included software, and add to your collection by purchasing soundpacks from renowned artists like Steve Aoki, RZA, and WondaGurl.

Lightpad M

Lightpad M is the updated version of ROLI’s award-winning Lightpad Block. Its redesigned interface allows for even more precise and expressive playing. Dimpled with 225 micro-keywaves, the new Lightpad Block enhances the tactile feedback of the original for a more responsive playing experience.

Designed to control any sound from drums to cinematic atmospheres, Lightpad M comes with an expanded suite of software including Equator Player and the Tracktion Waveform and Ableton Live Lite digital audio workstations.

Loop Block

The controls help you set your tempo, record loops, and quantise your loops so they snap in time with the tempo.

Bundles with the kit is also a selection of software, including ROLI’s flagship software synthesiser and sound engine Equator, a desktop sound player version of the acclaimed Strobe 2 Player polysynth from FXpansion, digital audio workstation Tracktion Waveform, Ableton Live Lite and more.

The ROLI Songmaker Kit is available now priced at £549.95 RRP inc VAT, and also includes a Protective Snapcase to transport your gear.

ROLI is exclusively distributed in the UK and ROI by Sound Technology Ltd.
