ROLI Seaboard Rise - worth it?

...25 or 49 and what you think of it - worth the money? Is it useful beyond with just the Equator software? Do you really use it that much or is it something of a "fad" that you will quickly tire of? And how is the wireless MIDI - stable or glitchy? Cheers

Linnstrument expressive pitch gestures, but the Rise makes perfect sense if you already possess skills on the piano keyboard. Regarding Equator, they did a great job on its design and by coincidence the Dudek is my favorite Equator preset -- beautifully expressive and I love how the timbre changes so naturally in the Y-axis.
