A couple of months ago, we mentioned that ROLI was working on BLOCKS Dashboard, a free application that integrates the Lightpad Block, Live Block, and Loop Block with leading DAWs and plug-ins. Good news, BLOCK Dashboard is available from today as a beta (not yet complete, says the company) version.
Through BLOCKS Dashboard you can control Logic Pro, Ableton Live, and other software programs in a new, intuitive, faster way. Music makers with BLOCKS can download it today and start exploring a hugely exciting new side of this modular music creation system.
Sharing this beta version, ROLI welcomes feedback on everyone’s experiences with BLOCKS Dashboard.
Watch the short videos below to see how you can control Logic Pro and Ableton Live, two popular music production programs, with BLOCKS.
