About ROLI

One of our most exciting brands to date, Direct Imports is thrilled to be distributing one of the latest & hottest products in the world today!

ROLI is a design-led music technology company. Their hardware and software products are designed to expand the bandwidth of interaction between people and technology.

Their award-winning SEABOARD musical instrument revolutionized the piano keyboard by replacing white and black keys with a continuous, touch-responsive surface that combines the expressive capabilities of many instruments in one interface.

Their range of hardware and software products has grown since the Seaboard launched in 2013. And everything they make — from their NOISE app to their Equator software — is designed to let music-makers be more expressive. ROLI products connect to others in their ecosystem and to many outside of it, because they want music creation to be as conveniently seamless as other digitized areas of life. By inventing new, connected tools they are extending the joy of music-making to everyone.

Their design process integrates form and function, as they rethink how music devices and software should look and work.  They design their devices to be portable, so that music creation can happen anywhere and they design them to be beautiful, so that they can inspire creativity not only when they are played — but even when they are seen.

With their latest introduction of BLOCKS, the most versatile music-making system ever made. BLOCKS is a modular music studio that’s for everyone — from beginners who have never taken a music lesson to pros who want to shape sound in new ways.

Everyone can make music on BLOCKS!

BLOCKS are a new, modular way to make music. You can arrange your Blocks in many configurations to create kits that are perfect for you. The Blocks connect magnetically, so you simply add more Blocks to do more things. It lets you make music naturally through intuitive gestures on a touch-sensitive playing surface. Each individual Block fits in your hand or your pocket, and they’re incredibly powerful. Just connect BLOCKS to NOISE, the free iOS app, and you have a wide array of sounds and effects to explore.

ROLI opens up a new world of music-making — and a world of new places to make music.
