The perfect hardware and software integration - Roli Seaboards and Tracktion Waveform

producer/hardware The perfect hardware and software collab Roli Seaboards and Tracktion Waveform

Tracktion and ROLI today announce that Waveform, the newest and most advanced digital audio workstation from Tracktion, will be bundled with every ROLI Seaboard instrument including the new Seaboard Block. The hardware-software combination will allow more musicians to easily create and edit projects with the full expressivity of MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE).

Waveform offers a plug-and-play experience for ROLI’s Seaboard and BLOCKS instruments. Setting it apart from other DAWs, it seamlessly receives complex MPE data and has a user interface that helps musicians visualize and edit all of the expression parameters of MPE on multiple tracks all at once. Released in May 2017, Waveform ($99) builds on the legacy of previous Tracktion DAWs in providing production tools that are approachable to untrained musicians but also valuable to the workflows of professionals.

The word of Julian Storer from Roli and Dave Christenson from Tracktion.

Julian Storer, director of software architecture at ROLI and a co-founder of Tracktion, said: “The integration of Waveform with ROLI instruments like the Seaboard shows how hardware and software can combine to let people make music both more expressively and also more efficiently. Pairings like these will hugely improve musicians' experiences.”

All owners of a Seaboard Block, Seaboard RISE, and Seaboard GRAND will now receive free licenses to Tracktion Waveform worth $99. This adds to Seaboard software bundles that include programs such as ROLI Equator and Equator Player, FXpansion Strobe2, MaxMSP, and NOISE.

Dave Christenson, co-founder of Tracktion, said: ”ROLI has previously made use of our highly efficient, flexible and powerful audio processing codebase. We’re thrilled that their team is expanding our cooperation by bundling the Waveform DAW with their popular Seaboard instruments.”

Now shipping, Seaboard Block is available to buy from
