HOW YOU PLAY

A smooth performance

An evolution of the piano keyboard, Seaboard GRAND replaces the black and white keys of a piano with a soft, rippling surface of keywaves. Striking the keywaves is the beginning of a multidimensional musical experience. Play in between the keywaves. Press, Glide, Lift, and discover a new mode of expression.

Strike

Strike to sound a note

Glide

Glide your fingers from side to side to bend the pitch, like on a string instrument

Press

Press to deepen sounds, like a saxophone player does through breath

Lift

Lift to change a sound’s resonance

SOFTWARE

A high-powered software engine

ROLI's high-powered Equator software is embedded into Seaboard GRAND, alongside a suite of cutting-edge music production software.

A material difference

Seaboard GRAND combines premium craftsmanship and cutting-edge design. Underneath a hand-crafted exterior is a state-of-the-art software engine. It has the timeless elegance and enduring solidity of an older instrument. But after one moment of touch, you’ll know that it’s part of the future.
