LUMI is a keyboard that lights up under your fingers. It’s an app that guides you every step of the way. And it’s a song library too, so you can start out with a tune you already know.
All three parts work together so you can:
PLAY great songs, note by note, just by following the lights — in your own time, at your own pace
JAM along to songs, just like you’re in the band. The chords and notes light up, so you can improvise in real time
LEARN music basics not only by playing, but also through fast in-app lessons
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 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.
Choose from 100s of songs from pop to rock to classical. More songs you know and love will be added every month.
Learn to play songs note by note just by following the lights on the keyboard and the colors in the app. Or jam along to the songs in Jam Mode: the keyboard lights up with notes and chords in the scale of the song.
Choose how you read the song, from a Guitar Hero-like view with shapes falling down the screen to black-and-white sheet music. There’s an interactive view to suit all ages and stages, and it’s easy to progress from one to the next!
Take things at your own pace. Slow down the song, or play it at the normal tempo.
You’ll learn just by playing and practicing. But you can also take fast, fun, lessons about music basics. Scales, chords, and hand position are some of the topics covered in LUMI in-app lessons.
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.
We reinvented the keyboard once before at ROLI. The Seaboard is a revolutionary instrument that’s everywhere from La La Land to the studios of world-renowned artists like RZA, Grimes, and Hans Zimmer. Now we’re doing it again, building on years of expertise and innovation in hardware, software, sound design, industrial design, and audio coding.

"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."
