ROLI today launched Blocks, a modular MIDI controller system that’s like a LEGO Bricks system for MIDI controllers.
Each individual Block offers unique control capabilities. You can connect various Blocks together to create a custom controller that suits your performance/production style.
Here are the official intro videos:
The Lightpad Block features a tactile, glowing surface that lets people shape music through presses, glides, and other natural gestures.
The Live Block and Loop Block have controls that make it easier to perform and produce in real time.
Blocks is powered by NOISE, a free music app for iPhone and iPad that is now available at the App Store. NOISE connects to BLOCKS wirelessly over Bluetooth, becoming the system’s sound engine as well as a standalone app.

The Lightpad Block, Live Block, and Loop Block are exclusively available at ROLI.com, Apple.com, and Apple Stores around the world. The Lightpad Block retails for US $179 (£169.95) and the Live Block and Loop Block at $79 (£69.95),
