ROLI has announced it is now shipping the Seaboard RISE 49, a four-octave model of its “mind-blowing” and multi-award-winning Seaboard RISE controller.

ROLI Seaboard RISE 49

Offering new ways to shape sound through Five Dimensions of Touch on its soft, pressure-sensitive surface, the Seaboard RISE 49 builds on the success of the Seaboard RISE 25. Twice the size of “RISE 25,” the “RISE 49” is designed for stage performance as well as studio production. Amateur and professional music-makers have already discovered the amazing versatility of this newest Seaboard, after ROLI displayed the first models at the NAMM show in California in January.

Each RISE 49 includes a padded Soft Case that lets music-makers carry the instrument conveniently between home, studio, and gig. Bitwig 8-Track, the digital audio workstation, comes bundled with every RISE 49 alongside Equator, ROLI’s custom-made software synthesizer and sound engine.
