The Seaboard Rise is an expressive MIDI device that is designed to offer musicians an easy-to-use multi-platform synthesizer solution. In fact, this particular device is equipped with the first ever built-in user control panel as well as the first Bluetooth wireless setup and integrated battery in such a device.

The contraption is designed to be compatible with a wide variety of operating systems. It also works well with popular digital audio workstation programs as well as numerous software and hardware synthesizers. The device allows for real-time sound modulation and expression using highly subtle finger movements and gestures.

"It's the world's first truly accessible expressive controller," says Roli's CEO Roland Lamb. "It is a next-generation gestural instrument. You can start in piano mode and then use gestures to dynamically modulate sound in real time."
