Last weeks announcement of the more affordable ROLI Seaboard Rise 25-key controller with Multi-dimensional Polyphonic Expression, means that this technology, previously only available in the flagship ROLI Seaboard and Seaboard Grand is now more affordable.

RISE is available for preorder via ROLI.com priced at £599/$799 and will be shipping next month to the initial pre-orders.
