- The Seaboard Block is about half the size of a Seaboard RISE 25, with its 24 keywaves being roughly 80% of the size of the RISE's.
- The Seaboard Block is bundled with Equator Player, Tracktion Waveform 8, and a 3-month Max/MSP license, while the Seaboard RISE includes the full version of Equator, Strobe2, Tracktion Waveform 8, and Bitwig 8-Track.
- The Seaboard Block is designed to be fully compatible with the BLOCKS system; it includes magnetic DNA connectors on 3 of its sides to allow you to seamlessly link to any other Blocks in your setup, including forming a single larger Seaboard playing surface with additional Seaboard Blocks.
- Unlike the RISE, the Seaboard Block does not have the three Touch Faders and XY Touchpad controllers. However, the Touch Block can be used to alter your Seaboard Block's 5 Dimensions of Touch (Strike, Press, Glide, Slide, and Lift), and you can use a Lightpad Block with ROLI Dashboard to emulate the RISE's controllers.
- The Seaboard RISE's octave shift buttons are on the left controller panel, while the Seaboard Block's are in the rear upper left and right corners.
- Both the Seaboard Block and RISE can be used with our free mobile app NOISE as well as many other mobile and desktop apps and hardware synthesizers.
