Slide, Swirl, and Tap into New Musical Expression
Create music and atmosphere like never before with the ROLI Lightpad M. This touch controller is the long-awaited update to the Lightpad Block. Increased tactile feedback; a brighter, softer touchpad; and a redesigned interface allow for an altogether more responsive playing experience. Plum the depths of your virtual instruments on all axis of movement. There are 225 tactile microkeywaves to track your fingers with a high degree of resolution to create lifelike vibratos, smooth bends and filter sweeps, and multi-zoned percussion. The Lightpad M also connects wirelessly over Bluetooth to the ROLI NOISE app (iOS) and includes an expanded software suite with Equator Player, Tracktion Waveform, and Ableton Live Lite.
A deeper, softer, more tactile surface
The Lightpad M’s new silicone touchpad is more comfortable and more responsive than ever. The dimpled surface gives easier for effortless swells and filter sweeps while apprising your fingers of all side-to-side, up-and-down, circular, and diagonal movements.
Live performers will enjoy the Lightpad M’s 50% brighter playing surface, which allows for greater accuracy, especially with percussion zones.
Expanded software pack
Your ROLI Lightpad M still includes last gen’s wireless NOISE app and Equator Player. But now, with the inclusion of Tracktion Waveform and Ableton Live Lite, you can create music in exciting new ways.
ROLI NOISE app (iOS) — access a huge range of sounds, from leads and bass sounds to pads and synth effects. Use the NOISE apps to select sounds, add effects, and even record and launch your own loops. Supports wireless connectivity over Bluetooth.
ROLI Equator Player — a streamlined version of Equator with over 200 sounds available. Browse hundreds of presets, from realistic pianos and guitars to evocative pads and extreme synth leads.
Tracktion Waveform DAW — build and edit projects through an intuitive visual interface. Seamlessly integrates the Seaboard’s multidimensional expression data.
Ableton Live Lite — turns the Lightpad M into a portable controller for Ableton Live. Play instruments and create tracks on the surface of one or multiple controllers.
Unheard-of Musical Expression
Responds to your touch in five different ways
The ROLI Lightpad M puts expressive control over sounds at your fingertips, and the unique pressure-sensitive surface allows you to play with nuance. Wiggle your finger to apply vibrato, slide your finger to glide between notes, and press harder to open the filter on a synth sound. The colorful square pads on the playing surface can be used to play individual notes, chords, scales, and even arpeggios. We’ve never seen a controller quite like this at Sweetwater.
Add optional control modules for greater performance power
The modular nature of the ROLI Lightpad M allows you to add additional modules for more hands-on control. The ROLI Live Block adds controls to switch scales and octaves, trigger chords and arpeggios, and sustain notes. The ROLI Loop Block gives you dedicated buttons for recording and launching loops. You can access all of these controls from the NOISE app itself, but if you prefer the immediacy of dedicated controls, just add these modules, and you’re ready to play.
