Looking for musical flash game April 15, 2010 1:09 PM   Subscribe

Several months ago, someone posted a flash game where you drew simple white lines on a black background. White balls hit the white lines and, depending on how hard they hit them, produced a musical note. You could adjust the rate of the balls dropping. I can't find this post.

I wish that application was just a bit more interactive, allowing for multiple, editable ball-drop points, deletion of lines, and saving the board state; it would be interesting to see such a visual interpretation of a sustained melody, or perhaps (although this would probably be difficult or impossible to accomplish, given that pitch is tied to impact velocity) even three or four-part harmony.

You may have more luck with one of the other implementations. They appear to support save and restore as well as movable ball drops.

YES! Now I remember why I originally wanted to play it. Who wouldn't want to play a game called balldroppings?

There should be a subsite called find.mefi where we can all post search queries to the extensive hive mind

Not really what you're looking for, but Flash god André Michelle has produced some pretty nifty audio toys:
