ROLI Lightpad Block M is a musical touchpad that lets you make music in a new way, featuring an enhanced tactile super sonic surface for additional expression control, suitable for professionals or for those making music for the first time. 

Dimpled with 225 micro-keywaves for precise and expressive performance, this Lightpad block has extraordinary tactile feedback for an altogether highly responsive playing experience. The adjustable illuminated interface means that the Lightpad Block can become a drum pad, melodic instrument, effects pad, mixer and many more sounds. Learners can customise the surface to show any scale during practice.

The ROLI Loop Block is the companion that gives shortcuts to useful production techniques, helping to produce tracks faster and more spontaneously, and making it easier to layer loops and build a song.

The Loop Block’s controls help to set a tempo, record loops, play them back, and quantise loops so they always snap in time with the tempo. With the Block, these studio techniques for building a track are right at your fingertips, so interrupted flows by delving into software menus are history. 

Whether you’re a beat-making beginner or experienced producer, Beatmaker Kit is bundled with an extensive set of software programs for desktop and mobile to help  start making better songs and tracks.

Learn how to play with the free ROLI PLAY app or go next level and explore hundreds of sounds and effects by pairing it with the free NOISE app (iOS and Google Pixel).
Or for more advanced - edit and complete your track with powerful production software. Beatmaker Kit comes with a custom version of Ableton Live Lite, and it's also compatible with a huge range of other digital audio workstations (DAWs) including GarageBand. 

This Beatmaker Kit is wireless and fits in one hand, allowing you to make music anywhere you bring your connected device. (Here are some great music fundamentals from ROLI to get started making melodies)

Expand the possibilities by connecting it with multiple Lightpad Blocks, Seaboard Blocks, and others in the modular BLOCKS range. Build your instrument as you build your skills.

ROLI’s revolutionary music-making devices are the future of music creation.
BLOCKS is a modular system that lets anyone learn and play music on powerful devices that snap together. The award-winning Seaboard instruments are radical evolution of the piano keyboard that help musicians - including renowned artists like Stevie Wonder and Meghan Trainor - be more expressive. Professionals, music students & teachers (STEAM), and people who have never played an instrument are touching sound in new ways through ROLI’s ecosystem of Connected Music products.
