NOISE is a free app that makes music mobile, so you can play and learn music anywhere you take your connected device. Using simple, easy-to-learn gestures, you can create beats, melodies, and songs with a huge library of sounds. Play NOISE on your phone or tablet, and extend its musical powers by pairing NOISE with ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music studio. NOISE was developed by music technology pioneer ROLI.
A NEW APPROACH TO MAKING MUSIC
Your touch screen becomes a real musical instrument with NOISE, which lets you shape sounds by drumming the screen, gliding your fingers along it, pressing into it, and lifting off. You make music through intuitive gestures on a grid of colorful pads. Each pad is a particular instrument or a note in a scale.
AN INSTRUMENT AND A STUDIO IN ONE
NOISE makes you both a performer and a producer. Start by choosing from custom-made sounds that range from bongo drums to string sections to zithers. Shape those sounds into beats and melodies, and record them as loops. Then mix and match these loops and build amazingly multi-layered songs.
DESIGNED FOR LEARNERS
If you love listening to music but don’t think you can play an instrument, NOISE may change your mind. It’s a fun, interactive learning tool. In Learn Mode, just trace illuminated Light Trails to learn how to shape beats and melodies. Choose from one of 15 scales, and the notes of that scale light up on the grid. Turn on Hide Mode to always stay in tune — it hides notes that not in the key. Use Snap Mode to stay in time — it snaps your performance to the tempo.
STAR MUSICIANS ARE SHARING THEIR SOUNDS
Grimes, RZA, Steve Aoki, and other world-renowned artists are releasing signature soundpacks for everyone making music with NOISE. Build your next song with sounds straight from the studio of a professional artist. Available through in-app purchase and on NOISE.fm.
ROLI BLOCKS TAKES YOUR MUSIC TO THE NEXT LEVEL
The power of NOISE expands when you connect to ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music studio. Pairing wirelessly, NOISE becomes the sound engine for Lightpad Block and Seaboard Block. Learn more about BLOCKS on ROLI.com. On the pressure-sensitive surfaces of these Blocks, you can shape sounds and play songs in a way that is similar to the experience of playing NOISE on an iPhone or an iPad. But you can be even more expressive.

What's New in Version 3.0.5
This update contains many fixes and improvements since our last big release. These include:
- Fixed reliability and reduced drops outs when connecting multiple Blocks
- Fixed lag caused by connecting Control Blocks
- Fixed issue where tracks were rendering as sine waves when exporting loops
- Light trail glyphs are no longer hanging when locking/unlocking the device
- Arpeggiator controls are working reliability again
- Added support for dragging multiple clips at once in the clip launcher
The app is fun, tactile and grows as your prowess and imagination do. Far from perfect, but I appreciate that the ROLI team takes user sentiments into account and then adjusts accordingly. I do wish that they would do more to celebrate those that champion the company and do all they can to spread and push this musical revolution forward.
Can’t Transpose The Seaboard.
As a saxophone player, I don’t understand why the app doesn’t allow the seaboard interface to use a E flat scale or any different scale for that matter. This prevents the ability of reading saxophone music without having to find a different version in the key of C. The scale feature only works on the block, which is definitely not as intuitive to use as an acoustic instrument.
Hi I’m love your app is definitely a magical app with lots of features is great im will definitely use it and promote it if I could use it. So I know this is hard work for you guys but if you could upgrade to also has the setting of change the frequency of the sound to 432hz and other will be awesome for me and a big community of music producers. 🙏
