ROLI was founded in 2009 by Roland Lamb and is described as a "design-technology start-up company“. Based in Dalston, London, ROLI supplies hardware, software and service products that increase the bandwidth of the interaction between humans and technology. The Seaboard, ROLI´s award-winning musical instrument, revolutionized the piano keyboard by replacing white and black keys with a continuous, touch-responsive surface that combines the expressive capabilities of many instruments in one interface. ROLI’s range of hardware and software products has grown since the Seaboard launched in 2013. And everything ROLI makes — from the NOISE app to the Equator software — is designed to let music-makers be more expressive. ROLI’s products connect to others in our ecosystem and to many outside of it, because the company wants music creation to be as conveniently seamless as other digitized areas of life. By inventing new, connected tools ROLI is extending the joy of music-making to everyone.
