Lightpad Block M - Super Sonic Surface

Reach for the ultimate music-making surface that fits in the palm of your hand. The next-generation Lightpad Block features a redesigned surface that offers an even more tactile, responsive, and precise playing experience.

 

 

Super sonic and easy to pick up

- The newest, most advanced Lightpad Block
- Deeper, softer surface topped with 225 microkeywaves
- 50% brighter surface illumination from high-definition LEDs
- 200+ free sounds
- Suite of music making software for desktop and mobile
- Wireless and portable for making music on the go
- Connects to other Blocks

 

 

Play a song, all on one surface

On one dynamic surface you can play beats, basslines, chords, and melodies - and tie them all together to make amazingly multi-layered songs.

 

 

Every movement is musical

On Lightpad M's tactile surface, you shape sounds and make music with Five Dimensions of Touch (5D Touch). Expression is right at your fingertips, so you can bring any musical idea to life.

 

 

Touch even deeper musical textures

The redesigned interface of the Lightpad M builds on the touch-responsive powers of the original Lightpad Block. Lightpad M's surface is deeper, softer, and defined by undulating microkeywaves - for an even more precise playing experience.

 

Enhanced tactile feedback

Based on the wave-like surface of ROLI's Seaboard instruments, the 225 microkeywaves of the Lightpad M add more tactile feedback, so you can interact with the surface in a deeper way and gauge each movement more precisely. A thicker, softer silicone layer enhances pressure-responsiveness.

 

Enhanced visual feedback

The surface of the Lightpad M is 50% brighter than the original Lightpad Block. It features higher-definition colors and a higher contrast display, so you can move more quickly between notes, instruments, and scales.

 

 

Explore a universe of sounds - it's growing all the time

Lightpad M comes with hundreds of sounds from funky synths to string sections to drums. They're all custom-made for 5D Touch. Expand your collection by purchasing soundpacks from cutting-edge sound designers and world-famous artists like Grimes, RZA, and Steve Aoki. The universe keeps growing, with new soundpacks arriving every month.

 

 

SWAM Saxophones by Audio Modeling

Lay down blazing funk solos or mellow jazz vibes with the extraordinarily expressive sounds of SWAM Saxophones. Get riffing on a selection of realistic alto, baritone, soprano and tenor sax instruments, all from the masters at Audio Modeling.
