MIDI Polyphonic Expression
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 to sound a note at different velocities.
Press to deepen sounds, such as simulating the effect of breath on a wind instrument.
Glide from side to side to bend pitch, creating a vibrato effect.
Slide up and down to add brightness, texture, or depth to a sound.
Lift off at varying speeds to effect a sound's resonance.
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.
Simulate the vibrato of a violin string and the breath of a saxophone with astonishing realism. Play electronic leads that defy imagination. Any instrument is possible on the Keywave2 surface.
