Smooth, touch-responsive, and super-sensitive, its surface lets you bend, deepen, and modulate sounds in ways that make a standard keyboard feel two-dimensional.

Changing the tune for renowned artists

ROLI’s vibrant community of artists use the Seaboard on stage and in the studio.

Hans Zimmer

"Roland Lamb and his team are actually much closer than anyone else has come to establishing a new, truly expressive digital instrument."

Keith Harris

"The beauty of this particular instrument is that it gives you even more ways to be expressive … to give your soul to the instrument"

Jordan Rudess Quote

"For me, discovering the Seaboard has been the most important musical life-changing event since my first synthesizer."

As seen in La La Land

The Seaboard stole the scene in La La Land, the film of the year with 6 Academy Awards including Best Original Score. Not trained as a pianist, Ryan Gosling performed a searing Seaboard solo that turned the heads of theater-goers around the world.
