The Songmaker Kit Studio Edition is the all-in-one creative solution for producers. Mould highly detailed, varied tracks using a combination of award-winning gear – enhancing your pieces with a selection of powerful and versatile software. Fully compatible with the leading DAW’s and software suites, you’ll be delivering supreme sounding sonics in no time at all!
Right out of the box, you’ve got some of the best controllers available to you on the market. The Songmaker kit brings together the Seaboard Block Studio, Lightpad Block Studio and the Live Block, resulting in a seriously brilliant set of equipment. Everything required for premium sounding productions is here.
The Seaboard Block Studio Edition offers you an exciting alternative to the traditional keyboard, boasting unrivalled expression and responsiveness – all housed within impressively compact dimensions. The Lightpad Block is a revolutionary drum-pad, letting you manipulate and build percussive tracks using just your finger. The Live Block improves your overall workflow and ensures you can access ROLI Studio parameters at the press of a button.
Having access to all of these contrasting Blocks means one thing: more options. The intuitive magnetic connectors mean you can connect even more Blocks, or take your kit apart and just play single pieces. Changing your configuration can be done extremely quickly too; whatever setup you want to use, take charge and swap parts in and out as you see fit.
Boasting soft, highly playable, touch-responsive surfaces, this kit is an absolute joy to play. You can quickly make and alter unique, varied sounds in seconds using a range of intuitive controls. Strike to sound a single note; glide your fingers to bend the pitch; slide up and down for modulation; press and hold to add more depth to a sound; lift your fingertips and increase or decrease the level of resonance.
A range of powerful and smart software has been included to really enhance your productions and increase the kits versatility. ROLI Studio (split into 2 plugins – ROLI Studio Drums and ROLI Studio Player) packs together pioneering tools, easy-to-read interfaces, intriguing effects and 500 plus sounds (alongside 300+ MPE variants) into one streamlined package.
ROLI Studio drums is a world-first MPE (MIDI polyphonic expression) plugin which revolutionises the way that you program your beats. An in-depth, but easy to master system known as 5D touch allows you to warp and manipulate drum sounds to your hearts content; you can even apply and adjust up to 4 audio effects at the same time.
On the other hand, ROLI Studio Player is made for melodies. Add texture and detail to your drum tracks with premium melodic tones. There’s over 200 acoustic, synth and hybrid-acoustic presets for you to explore and experiment with here. That’s not to mention the inclusion of Tracktion Waveform 8, Max MSP, Strobe2 and more!
You’ll be composing and producing more efficiently and effectively too. ROLI Studio provides smart chords (suggesting which chord to select after each note you perform), a multi-layered arpeggiator (producing rhythms with 3 arp layers) and effects/macros (ensuring you can tweak your sound in real-time).
