ROLI Seaboard Grand Stage Features:
Seaboard GRAND Stage at a glance:
A revolution in musical touch
The Seaboard GRAND Stage is a premium performance instrument that reimagines the piano keyboard as a soft, continuous surface and puts expression back at your fingertips.
Expression in every gesture
The Seaboard GRAND Stage is designed for keyboardists who want to enjoy dimensions of expression that are not possible on a standard keyboard. The GRAND Stage offers four dimensions of touch: Strike, Glide, Press, and Lift.
Plug and play
The Seaboard GRAND Stage is a plug-and-play instrument. Equator, ROLI’s software synthesizer, is embedded in the hardware of the instrument. All that is needed to make music right out of the box are speakers or headphones.
Handcrafted in London
The Seaboard GRAND Stage is hand-crafted from premium materials and each instrument is individually manufactured at ROLI’s offices in London.
Is the Seaboard GRAND Stage compatible with my favourite DAW or synth?
The Seaboard GRAND Stage transmits MIDI over USB so it can be connected and used with DAWs and virtual instruments like an ordinary MIDI controller. It is compatible with every form of music software. Some kinds of software are not yet capable of unlocking the full expressive potential of the GRAND. Since the GRAND Stage uses multiple channels of MIDI simultaneously, we provide templates in our Support pages for all major DAWs and many popular instruments to help you get started quickly.
What software comes bundled with the Seaboard GRAND Stage?
The Seaboard GRAND Stage comes bundled with Equator, FXpansion’s Strobe2, Dashboard, and PolyThru. Equator is ROLI’s software synthesiser. Strobe2 is an exciting software polysynth that responds fully to the Seaboard’s dimensions of touch. Dashboard is the master control panel for global settings. Since the GRAND Stage requires a multi-timbral sound source, Polythru makes it easy and intuitive to use mono-timbral plugins with the GRAND Stage as if they were multi-timbral.
What is Equator?
Equator is ROLI’s custom-built software synthesiser. It is designed to work for and with Seaboard instruments, maximising the expressive potential of Seaboards’ unique Keywave surface. It is compatible across multiple platforms including OS X and Windows, and it works with a variety of Digital Audio Workstations.
