HOW YOU PLAY

Every movement is musical

Searing solos, cinematic soundscapes, and simple sketches start with one moment of touch. Then the musical possibilities grow. Make music with Five Dimensions of Touch (5D Touch) on a uniquely responsive surface. Expression is at your fingertips, so you can bring any musical idea to life.

SOUNDS

Explore hundreds of sounds from strings to synths

Seaboard Block comes with a huge library of sounds from string sections to glitched-out synths. Access your sounds on either mobile or desktop through included software, and add to your collection by purchasing soundpacks from renowned artists like Steve Aoki, RZA, and WondaGurl.

SWAM Saxophones by Audio Modeling

Lay down blazing funk solos or mellow jazz vibes with the extraordinarily expressive sounds of SWAM Saxophones. Get riffing on a selection of realistic alto, baritone, soprano and tenor sax instruments, all from the masters at Audio Modeling.

Software to take your tracks from start to finish

Every Seaboard Block comes with a suite of high-powered music production programs. There’s something for everyone — from beginners to pros.
