One of Ninja Tune’s finest turns your keyboard into a sequencer. The British label Ninja Tune continues to mine the elegant load time and cross-platform ease of Flash programming. As with the DJ Vadim audio-game, this one lets you trigger a host of samples. The implementation here isn’t as smooth (initial instructions fly by too fast, and one senses there are more options than present themselves), but the sounds themselves are superb: Tobin has cut up some great, murky funk. And it’s up to you to put it together. (Thanks to Wendy K from Ninja for the link; entry updated June 30, 2002.)
