Roli Lightpad Block
Start with the Lightpad Block
The Lightpad Block is the center of the BLOCKS system. You make music through natural movements on the Block’s smooth, glowing, pressure-responsive surface. Drop beats and shape melodies by striking, sliding, and pressing your fingers on the surface. Illuminated grids help you find your notes. Light Trails guide you to learn musical gestures quickly. To get started on BLOCKS, all you need is a Lightpad Block and NOISE, the iOS app.
Add lots of NOISE
NOISE is the iOS app that powers BLOCKS. It’s free to download on iPhones and iPads. On NOISE you choose from over 100 sounds to play on your Lightpad Block. You also use the app to record loops — so you can easily make a track. Everything works wirelessly. With NOISE, BLOCKS becomes as powerful as a professional-grade synthesizer.
More control is one click away
The Live Block and Loop Block make it even easier to access the features you use most to make music. At the touch of a button you can record your beats, play them back, switch scales, play chords and arpeggios, and more. They connect to your Lightpad Block with a click, putting even more control at your fingertips.
