Music technology Company, ROLI welcomed The Duke to their production facility in London on the 15th October, 2014 to see their revolutionary “Seaboard GRAND”.
The Seaboard GRAND, is an innovative new musical instrument that has reinvented the typical piano keyboard. Using silicone technology, the Seaboard has a soft, continuous surface that reacts to the user’s fingertips, chancing pitch, vibrato and dynamic changes.
HRH supports UK Entrepreneurs and particularly those in technology and engineering and saw how each Seaboard product is handcrafted by ROLI Engineers, before being shipped to 35 countries.
The Duke received a demonstration of the Seaboard before meeting with the production team who explained the manufacturing process.
ROLI founder and Seaboard inventor Roland Lamb said “It was a great honour that The Duke of York was able to meet the team and learn more about our production processes…we strongly believe that local production has been the key to ensuring consistency in the quality of our products.”
