ROLI PLAY is an interactive introduction to the Lightpad Block, the musical touchpad from ROLI. The Lightpad Block lets you shape sounds and perform music with astonishing expressiveness. ROLI PLAY takes you through a few quick lessons that show you how to start making music in minutes on your Lightpad.
Learn how to shape sound through touch
Play around with a huge range of sounds from delicate flutes to guitar leads to pulsing dance floor beats. Learn how to shape and deepen any sound through five movements — Strike, Glide, Slide, Press, and Lift — that become musical on the Lightpad surface.
Start making songs
Have fun experimenting with electronic music composition on a Lightpad Block. Anyone can do it! Make a song by choosing sounds, recording loops, and mixing them — all within the easy-to-use interfaces of the app. Explore basslines, chords, and leads, and start layering these musical elements together to make amazing tracks. Speed up and slow down your tempo at the touch of a finger. You don't need to be a DJ to start making music.
Share your creations with friends
It’s easy to share your finished projects with friends and family. Just upload your project to NOISE.fm, ROLI’s music sharing platform, through a simple click in the app. Share your music via email or social media. ROLI PLAY helps you get feedback on your musical ideas, so you can refine them. Because no project is ever truly finished.
Create a sonic signature
ROLI PLAY introduces the SongDial, a revolutionary visualization of music. The circular Songdial tracks your instruments like sonar on a submarine — yet with the geometrical beauty of a mandala. Its appearance changes as you add different elements to each part of your track, becoming your personal sonic signature.
Drums now available in Play mode!
