I made an Etoy a while ago, see attachment. Drag the yellow "notes"  
off the circle, and resize them to change pitch. Now, what would be  
really cool if we could make this use an instrument instead of the  
simple sine wave ...

The same thing should be doable with percussions, just drop some  
sampled sounds into the world.

On the XO it would be great to use TamTam instruments. We have OSC for  
Squeak ...
