MIDI Polyphonic Expression

The most responsive playing surface

RISE2 - Top down

Every movement
is musical

On a piano keyboard you control sound in just one way: the force of strike on each key. On the soft, silicone surface of Seaboard RISE 2, you'll shape sound with 5 intuitive movements.

〰️

Discover how 5 Dimensions of Touch can instantly elevate your performances through the most simple of gestures:

Strike

Strike to sound a note at different velocities.

Glide

Glide from side to side to bend pitch, creating a vibrato effect.

Slide

Slide up and down to add brightness, texture, or depth to a sound.

Press

Press to deepen sounds, such as simulating the effect of breath on a wind instrument.

Lift

Lift off at varying speeds to effect a sound's resonance.

Wave hello to a
new piano keyboard

Play with confidence on a tactile, continuous 49-key surface designed for complete self-expression.

More accessible to keyboard players than ever before, the Keywave2 design refines the revolutionary shape of the original Seaboard surface with wider keys and honed edges. Embossed ridges let you accurately feel every key — and feel your music.
