The Lightpad Block M is the next generation of the Lightpad Block, a surface for sonic control, that launched in November 2016. Music-makers can recreate the sounds of drums, cellos, flutes, uplifting synths, and hundreds of other instruments just by touching the Lightpad Block, which is both a palm-sized music-making device in its own right and a piece of the expandable BLOCKS system. The Lightpad M creates an even more sensitive and precise playing experience that is on par with ROLI's premium instruments like the Seaboard RISE.
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 Lightpad M'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.
Touch even deeper musical textures:
The redesigned interface of the Lightpad M builds on the touch-responsive powers of the original Lightpad Block. Lightpad M's surface is deeper, softer, and defined by undulating microkeywaves - for an even more precise playing experience.
Enhanced tactile feedback:
Based on the wave-like surface of ROLI's Seaboard instruments, the 225 microkeywaves of the Lightpad M add more tactile feedback, so you can interact with the surface in a deeper way and gauge each movement more precisely. A thicker, softer silicone layer enhances pressure-responsiveness.
Enhanced visual feedback:
The surface of the Lightpad M is 50% brighter than the original Lightpad Block. It features higher-definition colours and a higher contrast display, so you can move more quickly between notes, instruments, and scales.
Explore a universe of sounds - it's growing all the time:
Lightpad M comes with hundreds of sounds from funky synths to string sections to drums. They're all custom-made for 5D Touch. Expand your collection by purchasing soundpacks from cutting-edge sound designers and world-famous artists like Grimes, RZA, and Steve Aoki. The universe keeps growing, with new soundpacks arriving every month.
Learn how to make music:
Learning a musical instrument can take years. It's much faster on Lightpad M. The gestures for making music are intuitive, and the illuminated grids guide you to play in tune. Also, you're not just learning one instrument. You're learning to play the sounds of hundreds of instruments - all on one portable device.
Expand your music studio:
Lightpad M is one piece of an award-winning music creation system: BLOCKS. Connect to a Seaboard Block, Live Block, Loop Block, Touch Block - or more Lightpad Blocks including the Lightpad M. All Blocks snap together and work together wirelessly. Mix and match, and build your instrument as you grow!
