Roli Seaboards now shipping with Tracktion's Waveform

Tracktion and ROLI have announced that Waveform will henceforth be bundled with every ROLI Seaboard instrument including the new Seaboard Block. The companies say that the hardware-software combination will: ‘…allow more musicians to easily create and edit projects with the full expressivity of MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE)’.
Tracktion adds: ‘Waveform offers a plug-and-play experience for ROLI’s Seaboard and BLOCKS instruments. Setting it apart from other DAWs, it seamlessly receives complex MPE data and features a user interface that helps musicians visualize and edit all of the expression parameters of MPE on multiple tracks all at once. Released in May 2017, Waveform builds on the legacy of other Tracktion DAWs in providing composition and production tools that are approachable to untrained musicians but also valuable to the workflows of professionals’.
Julian Storer, director of software architecture at ROLI and a co-founder of Tracktion, says: ‘The integration of Waveform with ROLI instruments like the Seaboard Block shows how hardware and software can combine to let people make music both more expressively and more efficiently. Pairings like these will hugely improve the quality of musicians’ experiences.’
All owners of a Seaboard Block, Seaboard RISE, and Seaboard GRAND will now receive free licenses to Tracktion Waveform worth $99. This adds to Seaboard software bundles that include music production programs such as ROLI Equator and Equator Player, FXpansion Strobe2, MaxMSP, and NOISE.
