The firm Roli imagined a keyboard for musicians : the Seaboard Rise Keyboard. It is pressure-sensitive and enables to synthesize all types of music instruments, but also to create all types of music and rhythm variations with a simple pressure. A pad located on the left side allows to control knobs of the software used by the musician. The product is compatible with all software that available on the market.

These Seaboards’ “keywaves,” by the way, aren’t just rubber-covered traditional keys: You can physically bend, press, slide on and pinch ’em to produce different sounds. Since you probably have to see them in action to fully understand how they work, make sure to watch our old demo video featuring the devices’ creator, Roland Lamb. If you’re all set to get one, you can visit the startup’s website to pre-order, but note that the instruments won’t start shipping out until October 9th.
