The Roli Seaboard RISE 25 caught our attention last year (and won also a Sonic Joy award!). Then last January the British company launched the Seaboard RISE 49, featuring a larger playing surface.
If you have a Seaboard RISE (and you would like to get more out of it) or you’re probably getting one soon, we have good news for you.
Roli just got in touch with us to announce their first online free Seaboard RISE course.
Erin Barra, Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music, takes you through the basics of the Seaboard RISE and Equator (the free software synth that comes with the controller) in 22 easy-to-follow video segments.
In some of the videos, you’ll learn how to bring the Seaboard RISE into your current setup. Other videos tell you how to get the most out of multidimensional expression when you’re producing or performing.
If you want to take a step back, Erin will also introduce you to music synthesis, MIDI, and Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression (MPE).
It looks like this is only the beginning of the new Education section of Roli’s website. You can also check out and download the first lesson plans, exercises and etudes for use at home or in the classroom.
The company is also offering a 15% discount for individual teachers or students in full-time Higher or Further Education.
