Music creation startup ROLI today announces the release of NOISE, an app – now available for free download on the App Store – that realizes the expressive music-making potential of the iPhone.ROLI, the company behind the innovative Seaboard GRAND keyboard instrument, has released a free iPhone app named NOISE, which is designed to ‘truly expressive musical instrument’.

Noise 5D has been designed to provide a powerful musical instrument for users that that “unlocks the extraordinary expressive potential of your mobile phone” say its creators thanks to support for Apple’s 3D Touch technology. Building on years of research at ROLI into touch-sensitive musical interfaces, NOISE is the most full-bodied instrument to ever hit the glass surface of an iPhone. Mobile phones and tablets are an increasingly important tool for people to make music, but music apps have lacked the depth of expression of acoustic instruments.

Roland Lamb, founder and CEO of ROLI, said: “On September 9th we launched the Seaboard RISE, the world’s first truly accessible multidimensional controller. Sure, there’s a ton of similar apps out there that do the same thing, but what got me interested is how the app uses the iPhone 6S‘s 3D touch feature. So after downloading it and fiddling around with it for a while, I looked up at the clock and realized that I had been tinkering with the app for over an hour.

Where you used to have keys, you now have a continuous set of “keywaves.” You can strike, press into, glide left and right, slide up and down, and lift off the keywaves to create unique sonic effects. It is one of the first apps to enable Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression (MPE) through its MPE Mode, so the NOISE mobile sound engine works with any MPE-compatible controller. ROLI’s sound designers have crafted the app’s 25 preset sounds – which include Breath Flute and Extreme Loop Synth – especially for MPE expressivity. Users have a choice of displaying 13, 17, or 25 keys on screen at a time, modify the layout with additional modulation controls, and it supports MIDI over Bluetooth, just in case you wanted to use it for live performances.

While it works with all models of iPhone from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 6s, NOISE has been optimized to take full advantage of 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s.
