Have you guys tried this out!? I'm diggin this. It's not exactly composing works of art and all and it's NOTHING like playing a real instrument, but it could definitely make for some hilarious music and ridiculousness while hanging out (online naturally, lol). I've been messing with it a bit and it's not exactly the easiest thing to get a handle on in 'Pro' mode, but it's still fun and I'm interested in seeing what IC can turn out :)

Have fun!

    I tried the bass pro mode and once I shifted my brain in to the patterns of playing bass, I swear it was like a lightbulb turned on. It's crazy how well the keyboard translates to bass.. Four rows of keys, four strings. I can play the bass on keyboard like I've been doing it for years. It's really bizarre and uncanny and has made me think a lot about the way my brain works. Fucking rad.

    Inorite? The bass clicked with me too! Of course, now I miss my P-bass lol!

    I can't handle playing the set with that delay. Fun to screw around with though.

    Okay, this is freaking fun. If the sound drivers on the laptop next to me weren't crap and popping/skipping/lagging constantly this would be even cooler.

    I messed with the drumpad and the bass, but I'm sitting on the arpeggiator. I do wish you could lay down new patterns and control knobs dynamically with the keyboard, though (can't even do it in pro mode, but it's an arpeggiator...if you're playing the keys by hand you're doing it wrong), cause the filter change would be awesome if it could happen gradually. Probably wouldn't be as big a problem if I wasn't using a touchpad.

    @Pacifisto I hear you. The Autoplay function seems to be good for dealing with that, but since you can't input new patterns or anything, it really limits things, and not in what I would call a good way. =/

    The combination of the word "google" and @JBoogaloo's username made me read this as "Joogle Chrome."

    Well played.
