The products are aimed at any level of musician, and are currently being used by Pharrell Williams, Grimes, RZA from Wu-Tang Clan, A.R. Rahman, and Hans Zimmer.
ROLI has partnered with Denaster and Mediacast for the UAE market, and its instruments are now on sale in Dubai Duty Free and Virgin Megastore.
ROLI's two newest products are the Seaboard Block - a smaller, more affordable model of the Seaboard - and the Lego-like Songmaker Kit, which includes the Seaboard Block, Lightpad Block M, Loop Block, software and case.
