Crafted with ingenuity and precision
The Seaboard RISE was designed by a multidisciplinary team of materials scientists, software engineers, electrical engineers, industrial designers, and sound designers at ROLI’s workshop in East London. The instrument reaches the highest standards of craftsmanship, design, and precision engineering.
The exterior is made of high-quality extruded black anodized aluminum, which is strong but light.
Silicone keywave surface
The smooth material of the keywave surface is custom-engineered to give your fingers a firm grip while also letting them slide easily.
A highly sensitive sensor board rests beneath the silicone keywave surface, ensuring that even the most minute gestures are expressed as sound.
Form follows function
The wave-like pattern on the underside of the chassis conceals interior aluminum ribbing, which reinforces the chassis for added strength.
