Description

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.

Confused

Make a tennis big win!

I love this app so far, it’s really fun and interesting to play with but I find myself confused sometimes. For one, I can’t find any drums to use with my block. I also think it’s confusing to make songs, sometimes it doesn’t show what I am making and sometimes it does. It’s also confusing to delete what I have made. Besides these three things this app is fun and easy to use.

Won’t connect to my Block

Carl in Oakland

I’ve updated to the latest firmware but still can’t connect to the Block with the Play app. It tries to connect then says it’s not connected.

The NOISE app connects to my block with no problem.

Not connecting
