ROLI

ROLI is empowering people of all backgrounds and abilities to make music more expressively. It all started with the Seaboard, ROLI’s reinvention of the piano, which launched in 2013 to worldwide acclaim. Since then ROLI has made its uniquely touch-responsive instruments smaller, more affordable, more compatible, and more approachable. It is creating a platform of hardware and software tools that connect perfectly with each other — and are also compatible with popular music-making programs. From premium instruments like the Seaboard RISE to free apps like NOISE, ROLI provides extraordinary new ways for people to make music.
