Description

Roli Blocks Lightpad Block

Everyone can make music on BLOCKS, the most versatile music-making system ever made. BLOCKS is a modular music studio that’s for anyone — from beginners who have never taken a music lesson to pros who want to shape sound in new ways.

Music is a language that everyone understands but few people can speak. BLOCKS changes that. It lets you make music naturally through intuitive gestures on a touch-sensitive playing surface. Each individual Block fits in your hand or your pocket, and they’re incredibly powerful. Just connect BLOCKS to NOISE, the free iOS app, and you have a wide array of sounds and effects to explore.

Build as you grow

BLOCKS introduces a new, modular way to make music. You can arrange your Blocks in many configurations to create kits that are perfect for you. The Blocks connect magnetically, so you simply add more Blocks to do more things. BLOCKS is a modular music studio that you build as your skills and interests grow.

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.

Knees, tables, carseats, and lawns

You can make music anywhere with BLOCKS. Play it on your knees, or play it on your kitchen counter. Take BLOCKS to the park. Each Block is lightweight and fits in your pocket, so you can carry them around as easily as a smartphone. Everything is wireless, so you don’t even need cords. BLOCKS opens up a new world of music-making — and a world of new places to make music.

Share your music

Music is social. Whatever made people want to create a drum circle around a fire or build a piano stool to seat two is still with us. NOISE.fm is a community that lets you share music made on NOISE, discover other music-makers, and collaborate with them. This means that BLOCKS and NOISE are a connected platform that lets you share your music with anyone.

Light Block Shape any kind of music on one powerful surface

Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the Lightpad Block packs more power than a roomful of instruments. When it’s paired with the NOISE app you can make any kind of music — drum beats, guitar leads, orchestral melodies — on its versatile surface. It’s totally approachable and easy to learn. So you can express the music inside of you — whether you play an instrument or not.

Touch Sound. It Glows.

Making music on the Lightpad Block is a delightful interaction of touch, sound, and light. Its silicone surface is pressure-responsive, and you shape sound by striking the surface, pressing into it, and moving your fingers around it. Not only do you touch sound. You also see it. The LED-illuminated surface glows, and each touch leaves a trace of light. Colorful grids guide you to make different kinds of music.

Strike, Glide, Slide, Press, Lift

The Lightpad Block gives you five ways to shape sound through touch. Strike the surface to sound a note, as you would on a piano key or a drum. Glide your fingers from side to side to bend the pitch, as violinists do. Slide up and down to modulate the sound. Press into the surface to deepen sounds, like a saxophone player does by breathing more. Lift off the surface at different speeds to change a sound’s resonance.

Learn to play

The easiest way to learn music is to see it right in front of you. In Learn Mode, Light Trails appear on the surface that guide you to make beats and melodies. Follow a few zigzags and end with a strike. You might not know it until you finish, but that’s a cool riff. Learn Mode teaches you the gestures for making music, so you can move more quickly to performing.

Drop some beats

The Lightpad Block is a beat-making machine. Choose a drum kit in NOISE. Tap the surface with your finger at different speeds and on different pads of the illuminated grid. You make beats just like you would on live drums. Choose a Groove Kit and drop some grooves simply by moving your fingers around the surface.

Take your beats to the next level

As you learn more you can do more with your beats. The NOISE app puts within reach techniques that electronic musicians use all the time. Record loops of your favorite beats — a bass drum here, a snare drum there — and build your loops into a track. You don’t need to be a DJ. But you might sound like one sooner than you think.

Play a melody

The Lightpad Block is also an amazing instrument for playing melodies. Glide your fingers from side to side to create an expressive flute solo. Slide a finger upward to add some growl to your bass guitar. You can play all kinds of tunes. Start by choosing a scale. The notes of the scale appear on the pads of the illuminated grid. Turn on Hide Mode and you’ll always be in tune, because you’ll only see the notes for that scale.

Play in harmony

Add depth and texture to your melodies through special features on NOISE. You can play chords and arpeggios by pressing a single note. With so many sounds available, you can record melodic sequences from a range of instruments. Then — like an orchestra conductor or film score producer — layer them to create beautiful harmonies.

Make a song

Anyone can arrange a musical composition with the Lightpad Block and NOISE. Just record your favorite beats and melodies as loops, and layer those loops on top of each other to make a song. Keep building your song as your skills and interests grow. Perform one part of it live for your friends, and the riff you improvise may be the best thing you’ve come up with yet.

Expand your surface

Two Lightpad Blocks create a continuous surface that works just like a single Block — but with even more power. Bring two Blocks with you to the party or on a trip, and decide in the moment whether you want one or two. The Lightpad Block is a versatile playable surface not only for the sounds you can make, but for the size you can choose.

A piece of work, a work of art

Breakthroughs in engineering, sound, and design make the Lightpad Block a truly revolutionary instrument. The surface is made of special tactile silicone that’s dotted with hundreds of light wells. BLOCKS DNA connectors not only magnetically connect the Blocks. They also send data, so each Block knows how it’s configured with other Blocks. As much as the gestures you make on its surface, the Lightpad Block is the new shape of music.

Store Information

Keyboard Corner was established in the late 1970's. The store had fairly modest beginnings, with a small corner shop, selling mainly organs and pianos. Over the decades our product range expanded greatly.

In the mid 90's we opened KC's Rock Shop, (Keyboard Corner's Rock Shop) to give us the ability to specialize in items other than keyboard based instruments. The two shops are now merged into one building with over 250 square metres of showroom.

December 2012 saw the opening of our specialised drum store, at 15 Erica Ave, just a 1 minute walk from the main store. With a great range of electric and acoustic kits, heads, percussion, cymbals, sticks and accessories we are well worth a visit.

We carry a huge range of everything musical and have specialised departments for pianos, keyboards, digital pianos, sheet music, electric guitars, amplifiers, acoustic guitars, bass guitars, classical guitars, PA gear, home recording, microphones, drums and more.

We have become one of the largest musical instrument suppliers in Melbournes suburbs, and have established a reputation of offering the best advice and service, while still offering great value pricing.
