Make music on a smooth, illuminated surface that fits in the palm of your hand. Play beats. Shape melodies. Control sound just by touching the super-sensitive, surface of a next-generation MIDI controller. The free ROLI PLAY app helps you get started.
On one dynamic surface you can play beats, basslines, chords, and melodies — and tie them all together to make amazingly multi-layered songs.
Lightpad M pairs with desktop and mobile sound engines that include hundreds of high-resolution sounds ranging from strings to drums. They’re all custom-made for MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) on the Lightpad Block’s unique surface. Explore soundpacks from sound designers and renowned artists like Pharrell, Grimes, and RZA.
Lay down blazing funk solos or mellow jazz vibes with the extraordinarily expressive sounds of SWAM Saxophones. Get riffing on a selection of realistic alto, baritone, soprano and tenor sax instruments, all from the masters at Audio Modeling.
