The Equator for iPhone app ports the company’s Equator software synthesiser to the latest iPhone, using the Apple device’s 3D Touch capabilities.
One of the first music apps on Apple’s App Store to take advantage of the iOS 9 interface update’s 3D Touch feature for sound control, Equator for iPhone will feature a simulated experience of the Seaboard Rise’s keywave surface. Pressing on the screen of the iPhone 6s, users can shape sound on a virtual keywave surface in much the same way as they control sound on the pressure-sensitive Seaboard Rise.
The second product, the Flip Case for the ROLI Rise, is a protective cover that also folds into a stand for tablets and mobile devices, as shown in the picture, above.
Pricing and Availability. Free to download, Equator for iPhone will come with 24 of the presets that ship with the hardware Seaboard Rise, and will be available via the Apple App Store in late November.
Available in five colors, the Flip Case will soon be available from the ROLI website for $129.99. For a limited time ROLI is offering the Seaboard RISE (regularly $799.99) plus the new Flip Case for $849.99.
