ROLI Seaboard RISE 49 MIDI Controller

Dolphin id:119650 Product SKU:ROL0004

Limited Stock

The Seaboard RISE 49 is a revolutionary MIDI controller. It remodels the keyboard as a soft, continuous surface that responds to touch. Playing on its unique “keywaves,” music-makers shape sound through intuitive movements such as striking the keywaves, pressing into them, gliding from left to right along them, or sliding up and down them.

Show full description »

The latest addition to the Seaboard family, this ROLI Seaboard RISE 49 has the potential to be the most popular yet! A whole new level of expression becomes possible through the RISE 49’s “Five Dimensions of Touch”. The instrument combines the deep expressiveness of an acoustic instrument with the versatility of an electronic instrument.

The RISE 49 sets a new standard not only for expressiveness but also for portability. Using MIDI over Bluetooth, it can be played wirelessly. Its super-thin design makes it easy to carry, as does the custom-made Soft Case that comes with every RISE 49. Its anodized aluminium chassis is designed to withstand the rigors of travel between home, studio, and gig.

Cord-free, the RISE 49 can control Equator, ROLI’s software synthesizer, on laptop or desktop. It can also work with only an iPhone through NOISE, ROLI’s mobile sound engine that is available for free download on the App Store.

The RISE 49 is part of ROLI’s Seaboard RISE product family. It features a four-octave playing surface in contrast to the two-octave RISE 25. The size of the RISE 49 makes it a full performance controller that is ideal both for stage and studio use. It combines the playability of a performance instrument with the portability of a MIDI controller.

Five Dimensions of Touch

The Seaboard RISE 49 lets music-makers control sound through Five Dimensions of Touch. This marks a progression from the piano keyboard where only one dimension of touch - Strike - controls sound.

  • Strike: The velocity and force with which a finger makes contact with a keywave.
  • Glide: Horizontal movements from side to side on a keywave or along the keywave surface.
  • Slide: Vertical movements up and down a keywave.
  • Press: The continuous pressure applied to the keywave after the initial strike.
  • Lift: The release velocity or speed of liftoff from a keywave.

Wireless connectivity

The Seaboard RISE 49 transmits MIDI over Bluetooth to devices that support it. Mac devices running OS X 10.10 with a Bluetooth LE chip currently support MIDI over Bluetooth. The RISE 49 pairs with the mobile sound engine NOISE, available as a free App Store download for iPhones and iPads running iOS 9+.

Software compatibility

The Seaboard RISE 49 transmits MIDI over USB and Bluetooth to software across OS X and Windows platforms. Like other MIDI controllers, it connects to a range of digital audio workstations (DAWs). Unlike other controllers, the RISE 49 is a Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression (MPE) product that uses multiple channels of MIDI simultaneously. To ensure that the connection between ROLI software and third-party software is optimized for MPE, ROLI provides templates for working with all major DAWs.

Power and Battery Life

A USB cable powers the Seaboard RISE 49 and automatically charges its internal battery. The battery supports up to 12 hours of wireless play using MIDI over Bluetooth.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.

Please select your country/region
