PLAY

Lights, Color, ACTION

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
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
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.

A Keyboard like no other

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.

  • FULLY ILLUMINATED KEYS

    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.

  • COMPACT YET PLAYABLE

    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.

  • UNIQUELY SIZED KEYS

    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!

  • MODULAR AND EXPANDABLE

    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.

An app that makes playing fun

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.

  • 100+ SONGS

    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.

  • 40+ IN-APP LESSONS

    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.

  • WATCH, PRACTICE, CHALLENGE

    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 YOUR PLAYING VIEW

    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.

  • JOIN LUMI PREMIUM

    Become a member of LUMI Premium and unlock an ever-growing library of contemporary songs. A 6-month trial to LUMI Premium is free for Kickstarter backers.

COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT, PORTABLE

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.

THE FIRST EXPANDABLE KEYBOARD

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.
