lately I'm thinking to buy a Roli Seabord Rise 49 (to use with Equator and Omnisphere) and I'd like to know from some user who has both keyboard (I remember that there's at least someone here who has both, but I don't remember his/her nickname): how does it work with the Montage? I'd like to control also the 9-16 parts with it.

Here's what I searched for (using a search engine, not this site's search feature): roli montage

... and here's what I got:
... a parts 9-16 one

The users who seem to be actively using the Roli are: (MICHAEL TRIGOBOFF) and (CHRISTINE) and (DAVID)

Hi, simply use the search function on top forum section with "roli".

It's Chrstine who have a roli keyboard.

She made a video in connexion with Montage :

I'm also interesting with seaboard block + "iConnectMIDI4+" from iconnectivity but at this step i'm not sure what i can control really with it. The Rise 25 is too expensive for my using.

I just have tried the Seaboard 5D app on my ipad connected thru the Montage by the UD-BT01, work fine to control and test the Roli app sounds.
howether you cannot control the Montage thru the app to test what controllers you can take in count.

Hope the Blocks dasboard app can help with edit and select some good CC in combinaison with Montage.

Thank you Christine, we stay tuned πŸ˜‰

I started playing Yamaha with the YC-45D combo-organ. Way back with the Crazy Horses of the Osmonds. It had after-touch by which you could apply tremolo by
vibrating your finger left-right, like a violin player does.

Sometimes I see youtube demoΒ΄s where people are still used to do this. I myself sometime do this automatically, although I know it doesnΒ΄t produce any effect like that anymore on the Montage. It would be great to have that back, instead of hooking-up a Roli.

Keyboard player David KBD from Spain does apply this when mimicking lead guitars using the pitch-bend wheel. Whether you like this metal rock or not itΒ΄s worth seeing his technique. He has videoΒ΄s using Motif and more recent Montage.
