Lightpad Block

Lightpad Block

The Lightpad Block is an affordable 5D MIDI controller and the centrepiece of ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music studio. On the Block’s pliable, pressure-sensitive surface you shape sound through gliding, pressing, lifting and other intuitive gestures. The surface is a glowing grid of squares that guides you to make beats and shape melodies.

Customize your kit through the addition of the Live Block, which helps you perform in real time, or the Loop Block, which helps you produce in real time.

The Lightpad Block is powered by NOISE, a free iOS app that doubles as a high-powered soft synth. NOISE connects to the Lightpad Block wirelessly via MIDI over Bluetooth.

This new generation of expressive pad controller is groundbreaking in its portability, affordability, and versatility to making any kind of sound. And the possibilities only begin with this Block, which can be connected to others in a modular, customizable system.

Recommended for:

Aspiring, proficient, and professional musicians who want a versatile 5D MIDI controller that they can take anywhere.
