The ROLI Lightpad Block is a compact and highly portable music surface like never before. The unique layout and innovative design makes the ROLI Lightpad Block one of the most accessible music creation systems on the market. The Lightpad Block features a touch-sensitive, glowing interface that lets you control music at the touch of your fingertips. The highly portable design is further accentuated by the ROLI Block's daisy-chaining capability, allowing you to connect unlimited amounts of Block units together with ease. The Lightpad Block serves as the keystone of the Blocks system, allowing you to create everything from drum beats to melodies. World-renowned music artists have also created custom soundpacks exclusively for the ROLI Blocks range, so you build on the most sought-after sounds from your favourite producers.
Innovative Music Creation System
The ROLI Lightpad Block is the keystone at the heart of the ROLI Block range, acting as the main control surface for the rest of the range. The LED-illuminated surface glows with its silicone interface reacting to pressure, allowing you to shape the sound by striking, pressing and moving your fingers around the surface. The interactive surface allows you to change between different configurations that cater to different sounds and styles, for example the 5x5 block layout is ideal for melodic and pitched sounds, with the root note always being white. The surface can change to different configurations to cater to different sounds such as the 2x2 configuration, which presents you with 4 large blocks, ideal for triggering drum kits with 4 sounds.
Control & Connectivity
Learning how to control the Lightpad Block is easier than ever, with the ‘Learn Mode’ providing a visual guide to making beats and melodies. Light trails will appear on the surface that guide you on how to create sound by changing between gestures. The versatile expressiveness the ROLI Lightpad Block delivers allows you to do everything from bend the pitch of a sound to modulating the style of the sound. Expanding the Lightpad Block’s functionality, the NOISE iOS application allows you to delve into the inner workings of your sounds. The NOISE app opens up a whole world of creativity, giving you the ability to record loops, import new presets from over 100 sounds available, create chords and more. The ROLI Blocks and Noise app connect wirelessly thanks to the built-in MIDI over Bluetooth technology, freeing you from the restriction of cables.
Highly Portable Design
The highly portable design of the Roli Lightpad Block mini synth makes it ideal for everything from live performances to jamming in the car. The 15x15 LED matrix features 225 LEDs in total as well as a built-in rechargeable battery that can last up to 3 hours from a single charge. Being the keystone of the Blocks range, the Lightpad Block can host other Blocks on its MIDI over Bluetooth connection. The silicone surface features a durable and smooth urethane coating for optimal durability. Its compact and lightweight design will neatly fit into any laptop bag, backpack and in some cases even your pocket. The Lightpad Block comes complete with a USB-C to USB-A cable for charging the unit from your computer.
