@picobot thanks Lol but I think the thing about cotn is it really wasn't made to be a pure rhythm game,the roguelike part takes precedent

@psysal whereas garageband on ipad for example never did it, cause it wasnt as buttery smooth nor have a gigantic sample library

@psysal FL Mobile though, not desktop fl studio, its completely different fl mobile is ideal for getting musical juices flowing quickly :

@gaymerinla but it can be quite finicky for sure, between getting multiple inputs if its too elastic, or being not sensitive enough

@gaymerinla for pressure sensitivity, piezo transducer on something elastic might very well do the trick i think

@psysal so instead of like paying 100 for Alicia Keys Piano, they give you like 4 unmodifiable presets from that. Good enough for me

@psysal instead of asking u to buy 100 synth plugins, they compiled a few good sounds from each, into a starter pack of sorts
