The touch-responsive Seaboard RISE is a unique controller that won us over last year, as we were working on the candidates for our 2015 Sonic Joy Awards.
Personally, I enjoy using the Seaboard RISE in combination with Equator (the software synth that comes with it) and Omnisphere 2, but from today ROLI customers have one more powerful option to experiment with sound.
Now with every Seaboard RISE you get a one-year license for Cycling ’74’s Max 7. In Max you connect patches using virtual cords.
In the company’s words “it’s as intuitive as an analog synthesizer yet the combinations are infinite, letting you build sounds and virtual instruments that perfectly suit you, your projects, and the spontaneous experiments that lead to amazing music.”
When you purchase a Seaboard RISE 25 or a Seaboard RISE 49 enjoy a one-year license for the entire Max software environment — worth $99. You’ll also get three Max patches designed specially for the Seaboard RISE. The offers ends October 31st.
I’m looking forward to going back to my studio and experimenting with this new combo. Between the recent acquisition of FXpansion and this partnership with Cycling ’74, the future looks bright for ROLI users…
