The multidimensional Seaboard RISE lets you control sound through five dimensions of touch; Strike, Press, Glide, Slide and Lift. It moves far beyond the expressive limitations of a standard keyboard, opening up new ways to make and shape music through intuitive gestures.

A revolutionary interface _ Pliable, pressure-sensitive keywaves take the place of keys on a traditional keyboard. The sensor-embedded keywave surface lets you shape sound through touch. Three faders let you fine-tune the responsiveness of the surface to touch.
5D Touch _ You can control sound and make music through Five Dimensions of Touch: striking the keywaves, pressing into them, gliding sideways along them, sliding up and down the keywaves, and lifting off. Video
Wireless and portable _ Using MIDI over Bluetooth, the Seaboard RISE works wirelessly, helping you take it wherever you wish to make music. Each controller comes with a custom-made carrying case.
25 or 49 keywaves _ The Seaboard RISE is available in two keywave models, the two-octave RISE 25 and the four-octave RISE 49. This offers maximum versatility for Creators to bring Five Dimensions of Touch to the stage as well as the studio.

The Consumer Technology Association has recognized the Seaboard RISE, ROLI’s revolutionary music­making device, as the most innovative product in music technology ­and several other technology subsectors for the year 2016
