THE LITTLE KEYBOARD THAT COULD
GET THIS: Roli Seaboard Block.
READY FOR: Creating some of the most expressive music a synthesizer could ever produce. The Seaboard Block is identical to its big brother, the Seaboard Rise, but in a much more portable, lightweight package. The surface features 5D Touch technology, which means you’ll be able to produce different sounds according to the way you touch it. Touch to simply play a note, glide your fingers side to side and bend its pitch, or even slide up and down to modulate the sound. Own one and it’s like having a personal orchestra you can put in your backpack. THE BEST PART: What’s better than having a portable orchestra? Two of ’em. You’ll be able to connect two Seaboard Blocks together, expanding your musical possibilities for even greater expression. Is this the future of music? You tell us. COST: US$299.95 ($415), www.roli.com.
