Super Sonic Surface
Make music on a smooth, illuminated surface that fits in the palm of your hand. Play beats. Shape melodies. Control sound just by touching the super-sensitive, surface of a next-generation MIDI controller. The free ROLI PLAY app helps you get started.
Play a song, all on one surface
On one dynamic surface you can play beats, basslines, chords, and melodies — and tie them all together to make amazingly multi-layered songs.
Every movement is musical
On the Lightpad Block’s tactile surface, you shape sounds and make music with Five Dimensions of Touch (5D Touch). Expression is right at your fingertips, so you can bring any musical idea to life.
Explore a universe of sounds — it's growing all the time
Lightpad M pairs with desktop and mobile sound engines that include hundreds of high-resolution sounds ranging from strings to drums. They’re all custom-made for MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) on the Lightpad Block’s unique surface. Explore soundpacks from sound designers and renowned artists like Pharrell, Grimes, and RZA.

Designed for musical expression
The Lightpad Block is custom-designed to be the most powerful music-making device to fit in a pocket. The sensors underneath the pliable surface are finely calibrated so you can play with precision. Undulating “microkeywaves” provide additional tactile feedback. High-definition colors light up the surface, so you can move quickly between notes, instruments, and scales.
