ROLI Lightpad Block Bluetooth MIDI Controller

Shape any kind of music on one powerful surface
Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the Lightpad Block packs more power than a roomful of instruments. When it’s paired with the NOISE app you can make any kind of music — drum beats, guitar leads, orchestral melodies — on its versatile surface. It’s totally approachable and easy to learn. So you can express the music inside of you — whether you play an instrument or not.

Touch Sound. It Glows.
Making music on the Lightpad Block is a delightful interaction of touch, sound, and light. Its silicone surface is pressure-responsive, and you shape sound by striking the surface, pressing into it, and moving your fingers around it. Not only do you touch sound. You also see it. The LED-illuminated surface glows, and each touch leaves a trace of light. Colorful grids guide you to make different kinds of music.

Strike, Glide, Slide, Press, Lift
The Lightpad Block gives you five ways to shape sound through touch. Strike the surface to sound a note, as you would on a piano key or a drum. Glide your fingers from side to side to bend the pitch, as violinists do. Slide up and down to modulate the sound. Press into the surface to deepen sounds, like a saxophone player does by breathing more. Lift off the surface at different speeds to change a sound’s resonance.

Learn to play
The easiest way to learn music is to see it right in front of you. In Learn Mode, Light Trails appear on the surface that guide you to make beats and melodies. Follow a few zigzags and end with a strike. You might not know it until you finish, but that’s a cool riff. Learn Mode teaches you the gestures for making music, so you can move more quickly to performing.

Drop some beats
The Lightpad Block is a beat-making machine. Choose a drum kit in NOISE. Tap the surface with your finger at different speeds and on different pads of the illuminated grid. You make beats just like you would on live drums. Choose a Groove Kit and drop some grooves simply by moving your fingers around the surface.

Play a melody
The Lightpad Block is also an amazing instrument for playing melodies. Glide your fingers from side to side to create an expressive flute solo. Slide a finger upward to add some growl to your bass guitar. You can play all kinds of tunes. Start by choosing a scale. The notes of the scale appear on the pads of the illuminated grid. Turn on Hide Mode and you’ll always be in tune, because you’ll only see the notes for that scale.

Make a song
Anyone can arrange a musical composition with the Lightpad Block and NOISE. Just record your favorite beats and melodies as loops, and layer those loops on top of each other to make a song. Keep building your song as your skills and interests grow. Perform one part of it live for your friends, and the riff you improvise may be the best thing you’ve come up with yet.

Expand your surface
Two Lightpad Blocks create a continuous surface that works just like a single Block — but with even more power. Bring two Blocks with you to the party or on a trip, and decide in the moment whether you want one or two. The Lightpad Block is a versatile playable surface not only for the sounds you can make, but for the size you can choose.

A piece of work, a work of art
Breakthroughs in engineering, sound, and design make the Lightpad Block a truly revolutionary instrument. The surface is made of special tactile silicone that’s dotted with hundreds of light wells. BLOCKS DNA connectors not only magnetically connect the Blocks. They also send data, so each Block knows how it’s configured with other Blocks. As much as the gestures you make on its surface, the Lightpad Block is the new shape of music.

Features:

  • 5D Touch: The surface of the Lightpad Block is tactile and pressure-responsive, letting you shape music through taps, glides, presses, and other intuitive gestures.
  • Illuminated surface: The surface is arranged in illuminated grids that guide you to find notes and shape sounds. Special modes help you learn, play in tune, and stay in time.
  • Powered by NOISE: The Lightpad Block connects wirelessly with NOISE, the free app, so you can choose a sound on NOISE and play it on the Lightpad Block.
  • Connects with other Blocks: The Lightpad Block connects to other Blocks in the system, so you can expand your kit and add more control.
