ROLI has opened up ROLI Studio to everyone. This means that you no longer need Blocks or a Seaboard to use the software, which contains 500 sounds from ROLI's synth engines.
You no longer need to buy a ROLI Seaboard to enjoy the MPE showcase synthesizer Equator. In fact, you don't need an MPE keyboard either. It's available now for everyone.
With some technologies included that are unusual for the budget end of the market, these well-regarded monitors are receiving a 2016 revision with a deal to be had. Or is this just a marketing ploy?
