We're happy to announce the release of new versions of ROLI Dashboard, BLOCKS firmware, and Seaboard RISE firmware.
The most significant change is support for the approved MPE specification, which allows either a 'Lower Zone' extending upwards from Channel 1, or an 'Upper Zone' extending downwards from Channel 16. In the coming days we'll be adjusting our support articles to reflect this change.
Changes to ROLI Dashboard and firmware include:
ROLI Dashboard 4.1.0
RISE firmware 1.1.7
Seaboard Block firmware 0.4.3
Lightpad Block firmware 0.4.3
Control Block firmware 0.4.3
For creators experiencing a channel clash when using multiple Blocks, you may need to use Multi-Channel mode to configure your Blocks to use the desired channels. This will be fixed in a future firmware update.
New roli dashboard is not work. seaboard rise49 can't connect my pc. the power light is flashing. pls fix or downgrade.
Hi Red, I'm also having similar problems to Haruya in that my Rise 49 isn't connecting to my computer and the power button is flashing between cyan and purple. Can I also get a copy of your reinstallation instructions? Cheers
@Shirley (and others in case):
In case the firmware update does not complete, you may use these instructions to manually update your RISE's firmware:

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with our support team.
I've tried this after experiencing the same problem and the Rise option does not appear in the SysEx Librarian
yes i use a mac tower late 2010. its better for my music production
@Haruya, it sounds like the firmware update didn't fully complete. We've emailed you instructions on manually reinstalling the firmware. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Is it possible to manually reset the firmware on the lightpad block the same way you've described it for seaboard?
@red I'm having the same problem as Haruya. Can you please email me instructions on manually reinstalling the firmware?
@max It certainly is! You can find the steps for that process at the bottom of this guide: Resetting Blocks. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Yes, the RISE 25 and 49 both use the same firmware, so you may use this firmware version for your RISE 25.
All works perfectly! PC and Macbook.
