ROLI’s Seaboard Block is a touch-sensitive keyboard on a budget

A more affordable version of its touch keyboard...

ROLI has announced Seaboard Block, a smaller, more affordable version of its award-winning touch keyboard.

The original ROLI keyboard — which came to prominence thanks to its unique gesture control — retails between £799 and £8,888, whilst the new keyboard is only £299.

The keyboard parameters can be controlled in five dimensions; strike, glide, slide, press and lift. The keyboard also works with the company's modular Blocks system, further increasing the possibiliities for musicians and live performers. 

The keyboard comes with a hundred different sounds — including pianos, strings and glitched-out synths — and comes with a suite of software including Max MSP.

The keyboard can also be controlled via midi for DAWs like Ableton Live, Bitwig Studio and Logic.
