Andre Michelle's ToneMatrixClick on any square in the grid and it lights up, pulsing a single musical note. Click on another, and you’ve got the beginning of a looping, tone-drenched pattern. Flashcoder Andre Michelle describes his ToneMatrix as a “simple sinewave synthesizer triggered by an ordinary 16step sequencer.” How about rephrasing simple as addictively delightful?
