Very pretty fun toy, nickyskye - thanks! Communication Arts has some comments from the designer and some screenshots for those who may not be able to view until post-work.

the piano is a bit sharp, compared to the other instruments. Or is it just me?

Yes TechnoLustLuddite, the piano is sharp. 'playing' it and guitar together made me violent.

The piano visualizations correspond well to the little hammers in a piano that strike the strings. It's always interesting to contemplate the visual representation of the attack and decay of sound.

ACK...This C major shit gets on my nerves.

But this kinda stuff will only get better. I respect the medium they're exploring.

Eh, I used to make things like this for fun. This is very inelegant, and a poor control mechanism.

Fairly neat, I'm sorta reminded of a DS app I played recently called Electroplankton.

Though the sound as is as abstract as the controls. It'd be neat if you could place chords in a matrix of some kind to get some kind of pattern. As it is, simply fancy windchimes.
