ROLI Seaboard Block review and MPE investigation

Published on Feb 17, 2018 Molten Music Technology

"An epic dive into ROLI Seaboard Block MPE controller. Looking at the hardware, the control, the data, the included software and how well it works with other things. How do you edit MPE information in DAWs? How well does the Seaboard work with Bitwig Studio, with non-MPE virtual instruments and synthesizer and modular hardware. I cover absolutely everything about MPE and this little squidgy device and share my thoughts on how useful it is in a studio and creative environment.
