    Love this gadget, probably the best drum machine I own

    I bought the M version of the light block at Christmas after trying, and loving, the Seaboard Block (I also bought another one of those)!

    They work great together, but also on its own the M is like a super portable version of my Maschine. LOVE the no-wires aspect with the bluetooth connectivity and the M unit is so much better than the first one - it just feels great and sits there begging you to pick it up and play, which is fantastic for those days when otherwise you might not want to do the music!

    P.S. You can also configure it on the Mac to act as a continuous controller so it can act like a mod wheel etc. for the seaboard block.

    P.P.S. You do need to have wired headphones to use this, as although the Lightblock has no latency at all when you hit the pads to the sound coming out of the phone - which is quite amazing - if you have bluetooth headphone then there is a delay on that side.

    Beautifully designed music controller

    I love my Lightpad block. It’s amazingly expressive when used with the Equator softsynth in Logic and I’ve really enjoyed using it with Roli’s iOS app NOISE as well.

    Roli seems to always be improving both the firmware of their blocks and the software that pairs with them. I haven’t tried the original Lightpad Block so I can’t compare the two but if you can afford it, I’d suggest going for the M.

    The lightpad block might be the most influential product of the music industry in decades. This is travelers dream! Having instruments at the literal touch of your fingers makes you truly appreciate the power of technology and how far Roli has come. I love it!

    Really nice!! Improvement on the first version

    The Roli Lightpad Block M now feels like a instrument. the first one was too sensitive but this one feels much better. The Noise app is better too It still needs a overdub function!! but it is way better app now. The Roli is great if you have limited time and need to make a expressive beat. Also the battery life is really good too. I think you will enjoy it. If you use Ableton live it works great with that now too.
