Roli let out an available piano with rubber keys
The British startup of Roli issued the new version of the synthesizer with a rubber covering: it became a little less and much more available. Seaboard Rise was created as the most portable version of the Seaboard Grand tool which has been let out a few years ago. The novelty has only 25 keys – Roli calls them «клаволнами» because they are really similar to waves on a black surface; at the same time the smallest iteration it «the big brother» has 37 keys.
Thanks to the reduced size the synthesizer will cost to you only 800 dollars that the professional is much cheaper than the most available Grand version (1999 dollars), especially if you not.
By the way, these «клаволны» on Seaboard – not simply usual keys covered with a rubber covering. You can physically bend them, press and "pinch" for reproduction of various sounds. To understand, how they work, watch this old demonstration video with participation of the founder of the device of Roland Lamba:
It was pleasant? On a startup site the novelty is already available to the preorder, deliveries of Seabord Rise will begin on October 9.
