Last year Roli came out with a keyboard that disrupted the musical instrument. This year, Roli doesn’t disappoint with Roli Blocks, a modular pad system that allows you to create beats, play loops, or even solo on songs.
It’s an easy way to make music on your iOS device. Downloading the Roli App Noise is the first step in this system. The app is free and you can start working the pads right on the screen.
Adding the modular pads will bring more functionality, turning the iPhone or iPad into another screen for multi-touch use. You can also connect the pads up to your favorite software for more functionality. At CES Unveiled, they were playing saxophone solos right from the pads.
Roli Blocks main pad starts at $179, and additional blocks start at $79. You can get Blocks at your local Apple store.
