Plink! A multiplayer music experience by DinahMoe. Like ToneMatrix, but with friends (or complete Internet strangers!).

Wow. It's impossible to make music that doesn't sound good. Lots of fun.

This only works with Chrome.

That's because they used a pentatonic scale.

There's a bit of lag to the whole thing (probably a result of the quantization) that makes it hard to do any rhythmically-interesting off-beat stabs. If they could make it a bit more responsive, you could have a lot of fun with this.

Pretty awesome. Just had a blast jamming (can I say that?) with a few other people and it sounded great.

Yeah, as is usual with these things, I have no idea what's going on.

I'm grinning so hard right now. I love that music is gradually becoming more and more accessible.

If you could make this more responsive, as LMGM says, and also add the ability to choose beats, and choose a scale, this would be just incredible.

Awesome! I'm really impressed. Spending way too much time on it already and will try to hook friends and family in.

This would be more interesting if you could play it with the typing keyboard and if it were chromatic. You can visually determine where the other players are in the scale, so it should be easy to harmonize.

It's a cool idea, I just wish it went further with this visual internet multiplayer music thing.

How do I figure out my score? :)

What if you're tired before it's done?
