LUMI is the illuminated keyboard and app that lets anyone be more musical in minutes. Pick a song and play along by following lights. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you progress.
LUMI is a keyboard that lights up under your fingers. It's an app that guides you and teaches you. And it's a library of great songs. All three parts work together so you can:
Play songs you know and love, from today's pop hits to classical masterpieces. Just follow the lights on the keyboard and the colors in the app — in your own time, at your own pace.
Learn about the elements of music — like scales, chords, and playing technique — through 40+ in-app lessons. Fun and interactive, they give you the grounding to improve your playing.
LUMI takes music from black and white to technicolor. You can see it the moment you turn on LUMI Keys, the brightest RGB-illuminated keyboard ever made.
Glowing in the dark and in the light, LUMI Keys is the brightest illuminated keyboard ever made. It introduces Brightkey technology, which builds on years of research and innovation at ROLI.
LUMI’s keys are more playable than those of any other keyboard its size, with 92% of the plunge depth of a standard piano key and nearly the same dimensions.
LUMI’s keys are a unique size of DS 5.5 (⅞ the width of a standard piano key) that is better sized for the average human hand. This small change in dimension makes a big difference for most players!
The first modular keyboard, LUMI Keys expands with a snap and a click. It features ROLI’s DNA connector technology, which lets you magnetically connect multiple LUMI keyboards.
LUMI Keys is powered by the LUMI Music app. It’s where you pick songs and decide how you want to play them. No matter what you choose, you’ll have fun as you learn.
Explore an ever-growing library of 100+ songs — ranging from pop to dance to classical — in the LUMI Essential and LUMI Premium tiers of LUMI Music.
You'll learn just by playing and practicing. But you can also take fast, fun lessons about scales, chords, hand position and other music basics.
Play songs step by step. Watch it being played, practice it at your own speed, and then challenge yourself by playing at the regular tempo.
Choose how you read a song. Start with a Guitar Hero like view, with shapes falling down the screen. Then move on to color-coded notes placed on a musical staff.
Become a member of LUMI Premium and unlock an ever-growing library of contemporary songs. A 12-month trial to LUMI Premium is free for Kickstarter backers.
Compact and lightweight, LUMI Keys can travel anywhere. At just 600g it weighs less than an iPad Pro. It’s smaller than almost all laptops, so it fits easily in bags and backpacks. When you’re taking LUMI on the go, you can protect the keyboard in style with a custom-made Snapcase.
Snap two or more LUMI Keys together to instantly expand your keyboard. ROLI's patented magnetic connectors and an edge-to-edge design come together to make LUMI Keys the world’s first fully expandable keyboard.
ROLI reinvented the keyboard once before. LUMI builds on years of expertise and innovation in hardware, software, sound design, industrial design, and audio coding. Learn more about the creation of LUMI here:
"LUMI eliminates the "language barrier" that stands between would-be musicians and their instrument"
"Next thing you know, you’re playing a song"
"Teaches users to play the piano from scratch, before transforming into a tool for jamming and even composition"
“I don’t know of anything else this portable that feels as good to play”
“Think Guitar Hero, but for becoming the next Vince Clarke or Vangelis, rather than half of a Hendrix”
“Piano lessons will never be the same”
"The intuitive impact of being able to follow the lights as an aid to playing is not to be understated."
