Creative tool needs more Ableton support!


Great expressive tool for song making. Needs further development with Ableton implementation. Have to use 3rd party Python scripting for partial MPE utilization.





This kit gives you a lot of producing power and opens a world of creativity! I got this kit about 6 months ago and have been in love with it since. The Roli Seaboard lets me lay down my favorite synth sounds and create unique melodies with its polyphonic expression, while the Lightpad Block gives me the ability to easily tap out a drum beat to use! Overall I'd say this kit is easy to use, given a little time to practice with it and get used to it's workflow. I mainly use Song Maker's kit with Ableton and it integrates very well! Very satisfied with my purchase!
