ROLI Seaboard GRAND Stage 61 USB Controller

The ROLI Seaboard GRAND Stage 61 USB Controller is a radically new musical instrument that reimagines the piano keyboard as a soft, continuous surface and puts expression back at your fingertips.

The ideal combination of functionality and portability, the 61-keywave ROLI Seaboard GRAND Stage is as comfortable in front of a live audience as it is in the studio, making it ideal for performers and producers alike.

Expression in every gesture
For centuries, keyboardists have been forced to accept the velocity of their key strikes marking the end of that note's expressive potential. With the Seaboard GRAND, however, this interaction is merely the beginning. Intuitive gestures such as presses, bends and slides open new avenues to musical expression.

Continuous touch - Continuous touch enables you to sound a note and then take it on a musical journey; modulating volume and timbre through one continuous motion. The Seaboard GRAND’s keywaves offer precise tactile feedback, making it easy to sense the slightest change in pressure, resulting in a far more organic experience than traditional aftertouch.

Intuitive pitch control
Adjusting pitch is as natural on the Seaboard GRAND as it is on a stringed instrument. Slide a finger to the left to lower the pitch of a note; slide it to the right to raise it. The smooth feel of the playing surface lets you easily glide from one keywave to the next, or apply a natural vibrato to any note.

Glissando ribbons - Unique, low-friction ribbons run along both the top and the bottom of the Seaboard GRAND’s playing surface. They make it easy to start playing one keywave, then slide to any other keywave you choose in one fluid gesture, even allowing multiple notes to glissando independently at the same time.

Harmony between hardware and software - The SoundDial is the only control you will need to adjust the sound of the Seaboard GRAND. Shift between sound presets using the continuous rotary control, while the subtle LED ring shows you exactly which preset is currently being played.

Equator sound engine - Equator is a full-featured audio engine, designed specifically for the Seaboard’s multidimensional control. Every Seaboard GRAND ships ready to run Equator on-board: just plug in a pair of headphones or an amplifier and you'll be ready to go.

Handcrafted in London - The Seaboard was invented and developed in London, and we are proud to be making each unit right here in London too. We assemble and test each Seaboard GRAND in our Dalston studio, enabling us to care passionately for each detail and ensure the quality of every instrument ROLI makes.
