I use iOS apps almost exclusively at this point with my Seaboard Blocks and Lightpad Blocks. A Dashboard for iOS would really help.
Please, please, please Roli if you are listening, make a simple dashboard app.
I hate to bang on a drum about this but I find it extremely disappointing that Roli has not created a basic dashboard application for iOS! It renders the Seaboard Rise virtually useless with 3rd party synthesizers without the ability to adjust sensitivity.
I stopped holding my breath that Roli would develop an Equator app for iOS, but I understand that the iOS model is maybe not as lucrative. That said, it feels like a responsibility to provide basic support for their instruments especially on one of the major platforms.
The seaboard is such an expressive instrument and iOS is a large part of why we have MPE in the first place. There are so many developers making innovative instruments that are MPE enabled and so well suited for the Seaboard Rise.
There is an independent app called Block Dashboard which is very useful. Roli have not said if and when they might produce an official one for IOS but the demand is certainly there and I know that they know that, so we just live in hope!
I'll third that Aaron and Christan! As a fresh Roli M block user.
Now i dont use iphone, cause they have always an update which will make your phone to get slow and youll have to buy a new model, curse them, i switch now to andriod.
Yes, come on Roli - one way or another, give us a solution that can work when just using an iPad without needing to hook up a laptop or desktop computer.
I´ll second on what Aaron Lewis said: Trouble is, that also Noise-App as AU overrides all the changes of BlockDashboard - which makes it quite less usable! So: Roli would you please change that and allow Changes by BlockDashboard or implement that functionality within your App-Universe!
Hi, I needed using Lightpad on iOS but difficult with Roli own software, so I bought Christophe's Blocks Dashboard.
I cannot find any manual or tutorial about it.
Can anyone point me to the basic concepts about using with MPE Apps (e.g. like Volt Synth or similar).
Thanks so much
the iOS Block Dashboard doesn't work with Seaboard Rise 25, I just bought the app for it and doesn't work, and later I found out in a forum that never will.
I don't understand why Roli doesn't do the app or at least upgrade the noise app to do it. If you have to change modes and you don't have a computer near you're done, you can't use the instrument as intended. It happened to me that seaboard didn't got the mode change when I unplugged from the computer, I went to play live with an iPad and it was on piano mode, bye-bye MPE, so the instrument was useless on that show, so disappointing!
Christophe's Blocks Dashboard only works with Seaboard Blocks & Lightblocks, so not Rise49 (or presumably Rise61 if Roli were to release it).
It's a game changer for me - being able to travel with an iPad and a Seaboard Block and use Noise + all the other ios apps is fantastic.
Don't understand why Roli didn't produce an ios dashboard themselves - massive credit to Christophe for taking the initiative.
