Reimagining the synthesizer: Meet the Seaboard

By Lincoln Eddy
March 18, 2013

The first instrument from UK music-tech company ROLI, the Seaboard is a reinvention of the keyboard with an organic way of controlling volume, pitch, intensity, and timbre. With soft, flexible keys, it’s designed to apply the control of an acoustic instrument to world of the electronic, while offering different sounds depending on where each is played. Plus the whole thing looks like it was designed by a less twisted HR Giger.

The Seaboard is due in a limited, handmade run of 88 this April.
