London-based music technology company, Roli has introduced The Roli Seaboard Block, a compact, affordable electronic instrument that makes music production easy for beginners.
In the Oscar-winning film La La Land, Ryan Gosling's character was featured using a Roli Seaboard Grand, an impressive and expensive futuristic keyboard that distorts sound based on how you press, slide, and bend the keys. The popularity of the movie sparked an interest in this modular instrument, inspiring newbies, only to have them discouraged after seeing the keyboard's $3,000 price tag.
The Roli Seaboard Block presents itself as a far more affordable, not to mention conveniently compact option which allows beginners to dabble in the world of music production. The modular keyboard has a versatile and expandable system which allows users to make their own music on this small-scale instrument, that offers the same range as its full sized companion. Different sounds are created based on whether the user slides, holds, or presses the keys making for a uniquely immersive experience.
