ROLI introduces Semitone Legato on Seaboard RISE 2

 

ROLI has shared this video demo of Semitone Legato, a unique expressive performance option built into the Seaboard RISE 2.

 

Semitone Legato is a RISE 2 setting that the company say is perfect for playing luscious, fluid leads and shimmering vibrato.

 

In this setting, pitchbend between each note — the Glide Dimension of Touch — is set to maximum. They suggest using it when you are playing a richly expressive or microtonal part, such as a bowed-string instrument melody.

 

Semitone Legato is on by default when the Glide Fader is set to 100%. You can adjust it on the RISE 2 control panel, or within your included ROLI Dashboard software.

 

Playing without Semitone Legato

For Seaboard parts where you need plenty of distinct tones and semitones — for instance a melody line with many chromatic notes or a jazzy chord accompaniment — it is often better not to activate Semitone Legato. As the Glide Dimension of Touch is turned down, each keywave will behave closer to distinct keyboard or piano keys, with less sensitivity to gliding, vibrato gestures.

To turn Semitone Legato off or down, simply adjust the Glide Fader below 100% on the side panel or in ROLI Dashboard.
