BLOCKS is the modular music making system that grows with you. Each Block is incredibly powerful, putting musical expression right at your fingertips. Start with one Block. Connect more Blocks together. Customize the instrument that’s right for you, and grow all the way with your music.
Lightpad Block and Seaboard Block are powerful musical instruments, and they’re also the centerpieces of a BLOCKS kit. Start building your modular instrument by choosing from two expressive musical surfaces. Or start by connecting Lightpad Blocks and Seaboard Blocks together.
Create astonishingly expressive music on a portable, super-powered keyboard.
Reach for the ultimate music-making surface that fits in the palm of your hand. The next-generation Lightpad Block features a redesigned surface that offers an even more tactile, responsive, and precise playing experience.
