Amazing MIDI keyboard!
Helix Kodon, 31.01.2018
Over the past year, I used this product exclusively for music composition.
It is very sturdy and comfortable to use. Since it's much flatter than a regular piano keyboard, playing it takes a while to get used to but it becomes very enjoyable with the new dimensions of playing possibilities. At max sensitivity, it can be difficult to play quickly without making micro-tonal mistakes, but the 3 faders on the left can be set to the desired amount of sensitivity for pitch, length-wise modulation (i.e sliding up and down a single key to change the timbre), and aftertouch sensitivity. You can also switch the faders to MIDI mode and assign any MIDI CC to the faders and touchpad (one CC for each axis).
The synthesizer software that comes with the Seaboard, "Equator" is worth half the price. It comes with hundreds of amazing-sounding presets (from synths to acoustic samples to sound design) and is completely modular. You can alter any of the parameters and have them be modulated by others to create your own unique sounds and instruments.
The Seaboard's primary features are mainly to be used with Equator, but with some audio programming you can get the sensors to work with things like Kontakt. Note that you can also set it to run in single MIDI channel mode which makes it function like a standard MIDI keyboard.
There are only two reasons why I gave 4 stars instead of 5:
1) When in single MIDI channel mode you have to manually select the channel through provided software instead of being able to push a button to do so. This wastes a bit of time when dealing with multi-channel routed virtual instruments.
2) After 11 months my Seaboard began malfunctioning (constantly switching on and off) and I had to get a replacement.
Overall, great product and software. I just hope my new one will last longer.

PERFECTION!
Viersen, 29.08.2019
A controller that offers MIDI Polyphonic Expression certainly is the way to go to get the most realistic feel when composing and Roli has done magic with it! Since the first time I saw it in MOMA I new that some day I had to have one. The Seaboard feels amazing and extremely responsive. Highly recommend it

The next gen for keyboard players
Cyrax, 22.11.2018
For a while I wanted to get my hands on the Seaboard Rise and for me it was a great experience as a musician.

PROS
The device is a really well built, the quality of the product is beyond what I've expected, the metal frame and the weight tells you that it's not cheap and that it holds something solid, the silicone like pad which is the keys it self feels really good actually didn't expect to get used to the feel that quickly,

In terms of connectivity one of the best things is the Bluetooth to MIDI option which for iPad users is a huge step as the Roli 5D Touch App on iPad is actually really good with a good range of sounds.

CONS
You will need sometime to get used to the silicone keys of the instrument, your hands will get tired the first couple of days until you get the hang of it.

The lack of the pitch wheel, but you can easily overcome that by practicing the slide option on the device to move up and down between notes.

Finally its a totally new experience, defiantly getting the Seaboard 49 soon after my experience with the 25.

Overall Rating 9/10

for composers/designers
RemmyW, 13.01.2018
extremely dynamic and flexible, it can be a very expressive tool.Very different from an original midi controller.

Cons:
Not compatible with many virtual instruments(probably cause its MPE) and it can be hard to mix and edit depending on your DAW
It's practically a new instrument, needs some practise to adjust (on it and its software-Equator) if you want to take the most out of it
