Roli Seaboard Grand

Just in case you haven’t seen it, its awesome. Part of the new breed of expressive musical controllers that allow new dimensions of expression in electronic music. The company based in Dalston, London are pushing forward with beautifully designed products that don’t compromise on key functionality. Go visit their products page for a better look!

The continuous pitch control mechanism allows a performer to introduce musical “systematic deviations”. These deviations are the things missing from standard electronic music controllers unless all kinds of other controllerism is exploited. This simple yet elegant approach can be used to faithfully recreate original acoustic instruments or explore new depths by providing tactile micro control to an array of synthesis parameters. Plus its got squishy keys which is always nice.
