NOISE is a free iOS app that makes music mobile, so you can sketch musical ideas anywhere you take your connected device. Using simple, easy-to-learn gestures, you can create beats, melodies, and songs with a huge library of sounds. Play NOISE on your phone or tablet, and extend its musical powers by pairing NOISE with ROLI BLOCKS.
NOISE comes with a library of sounds that includes guitar leads, deep dark synths, and amazingly life-like cellos and saxophones. Discover your sound, and add to your collection by purchasing additional soundpacks. Artists like Grimes, Rudimental and RZA of Wu-Tang Clan have crafted original NOISE soundpacks, so you can build your music with their sounds.
Add authentic Indian colour to your tracks with realistic instruments from A. R. Rahman’s KM Music Conservatory. Weave wondrous melodies and rhythms using the Veena, Tabla and more timeless sounds from one of the world's great musical civilizations.
