Introducing the Seaboard keyboard
The piano keyboard meets the future in a revolutionary new approach to music
The Seaboard is a radically new musical instrument based on the design of a piano keyboard. Its patent-pending approach brings together a traditional approach to making music with cutting edge digital technology in a way that is so intuitively tactile that you can play it with your eyes closed.
This approach enables performers, composers and producers to exert unprecedented real-time control of all the major characteristics of sound: volume, pitch and timbre. If you can play the piano you already know how to play the Seaboard, and it literally puts a new world of expressive possibilities right at your fingertips.
The core team brings together a wide range of skills – product, industrial and interaction design, software engineering, business management, and of course music production, administration, management, teaching, networking and strategy and a passion for creating more intuitive ways of making music.
In early 2011, Seaboard successfully entered the Incubator.

“Evolved from the piano keyboard, the Seaboard is a new musical instrument which bridges the gap between acoustic and digital music by putting the control of pitch, volume and timbre right at your fingertips.
A limited edition of 88 GRANDs will be available for pre-order worldwide starting in April 2013. In recognition of its provenance, each will be named after a particular note on the piano keyboard, from A0 to C8.
Our cutting-edge SoundDial software gives you complete control of the Seaboard’s sound and unprecedented integration between software and hardware.
