The Future of Musical Devices? ROLI BLOCKS! (with Noise app & Omnisphere 2)

"::| A GOOD PAIR OF HEADPHONES IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IN ORDER TO HEAR THE WIDE RANGE OF FREQUENCIES |::
I had wanted to do a nice long review of the Roli Lightpad Blocks, but I was having a ton of technical issues with my new GoPro cameras (lost a half hours worth of footage) so I just cranked out this short quick jam session in frustration (I've also been running on only two hours of sleep lately.)
I show the Lightpad Block with the Roli Noise app for iOS, and then demonstrate how it works with a soft synth like Omnisphere 2 in Ableton Live. I wasn't able to get the 5D Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression happening in Omnisphere, but later researched it and found that it is possible, I just need to setup Omnisphere the proper way in order to achieve this. So, next video, I may go more in-depth with this if there is interest, and I'm also looking into how I can use the Blocks to control my Eurorack kit.
Oh, and I forgot to mention in the video... when I registered my Block, Roli's site gave me an unlock code for a full version of Cycling '74's Max 7! How cool is that!
