ROLI RELEASES FREE, EXPRESSIVE APP FOR iPHONE 6S
London-based music creation startup ROLI has announced NOISE — a free app for iPhones.
NOISE was designed to make full use of Apple’s 3D Touch technology implemented in the iPhone 6s. The surface of the phone lets music makers shape sound through strike, press, glide, slide and lift — the ‘five dimensions of touch’ that made customers and critics praise ROLI’s Seaboard RISE which was released in September.
Roland Lamb, founder and CEO of ROLI, said: “On September 9 we launched the Seaboard RISE, the world’s first truly accessible multidimensional controller. At the very same time Apple launched the iPhone 6s featuring 3D Touch. For the past 12 weeks we’ve applied our years of research into multidimensional touch and sound to produce NOISE, an app that transforms the iPhone into a bonafide musical instrument.”
As an instrument, NOISE features 25 keywaves, includes 25 sounds, and has five faders for fine-tuning the touch-responsiveness of the surface. It is now available for music-makers of any skill level who want to explore a multidimensionally expressive instrument that fits in their pockets.
While it works with all models of iPhone from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 6s, NOISE has been optimised to take full advantage of 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s.
