I use iOS apps almost exclusively at this point with my Seaboard Blocks and Lightpad Blocks. A Dashboard for iOS would really help.
Mobile setups use IOS primarily not laptops. Further there are far more musicians with Tablets and Phones that use music apps than OSX at this point. While I do own a OSX based Studio I also have a Mobile Studio. My mobile studio has Roli Blocks. We all require the Dashboard app on IOS. If you did this then so many musicians would not be returning the items and be so frustrated. Please convert the Dashboard Code base to IOS. After spending 2 decades in my Studio I want to get out and truly go mobile. The current generation of iPad apps and the power of newer iPads can deliver this creativity and produce fantastic tracks. Please make this happen.
DASHBOARD for IOS should be standard. This is absolutely critical to the success of the Blocks on IOS.
Just chiming in: yes, I would love to be able to use (and recommend) the seaboard block with iOS. There's only so much you can do with Noise. Otherwise, it's hard to recommend the $300 S/B controller over say a mini from Akai or Korg.
Demo iOS blocks dashboard with an iPad - in that "it just works with all your other apps" - and you can probably eat Teenage Engineering's lunch (vs those OP-* mobile things)
Yes please. I really would like to get rid of a PC in my set-up. I have a all-hardware rig and need computer assistance only for configuring devices like the Roli. Might as well be as stealth as possible. I'm sick of Windows and won't buy a mac just for some configuration softs.
It's become near to useless without dashboard for IOS. Just got songmaker kit and disappointed that it's not possible to change like example to single channel mode from ipad to play with instruments that not support mpe ( guitars in garageband like example).
Dashboard for IOS is absolutely needed!!
Dashboard for iOS is needed. Being able to adapt the Seaboard Block and blocks to instruments on iOS would make it such a better controller. The whole idea of a portable mobile keyboard is the freedom to create. Not having Dashboard available on iOS doesn't fit the "creator" philosophy of Roli. Please let us know if there are plans to make dashboard available on iOS, and when. Thanks
+1 for a proper dashboard for IOS. It is something that is long overdue - come on Roli!
I often use my Lightpad on PC with Melodics, then take it with me on the go to make music with my iPhone. So many times I have taken my Lightpad out only to find it stuck in the Melodics app mode and can only use it with Noise until I reconnect to PC/Roli Dashboard to change it to Drum Block etc. So frustrating.
If a stand-alone Dashboard cannot be released for iOS, at least allow us more control via Noise and the ability to change Blocks Apps via Noise or simply hitting the mode button on the block....
