Roli Lightpad Block
Play a song, all on one surface
On one dynamic surface you can play beats, basslines, chords, and melodies — and tie them all together to make amazingly multi-layered songs.
Every movement is musical
On the Lightpad Block’s tactile surface, you shape sounds and make music with Five Dimensions of Touch (5D Touch). Expression is right at your fingertips, so you can bring any musical idea to life.
Explore a universe of sounds — it’s growing all the time
Lightpad M pairs with desktop and mobile sound engines that include hundreds of high-resolution sounds ranging from strings to drums. They’re all custom-made for MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) on the Lightpad Block’s unique surface. Explore soundpacks from sound designers and renowned artists like Pharrell, Grimes, and RZA.
Bundled with a high-powered suite of software
Every Lightpad Block comes with a suite of high-powered music production programs. There’s something for everyone — from beginners to pros. Jam along to interactive lessons to build your finger drumming and beatmaking skills with Melodics, the online educational platform.
3-month free subscription included with Lightpad Block.
Designed for musical expression
The Lightpad Block is custom-designed to be the most powerful music-making device to fit in a pocket. The sensors underneath the pliable surface are finely calibrated so you can play with precision. Undulating “microkeywaves” provide additional tactile feedback. High-definition colors light up the surface, so you can move quickly between notes, instruments, and scales.
