ToneMatrix: This pattern makes a perfect ringtone.

Flash-Audio guru Andre Michelle, the very creator of the Hobnox-audiotools, made a new soundtoy! The ToneMatrix is a simple sinewave-synth, that is visually and conceptional similar to the Tenori-On or the Monome.

I just managed to make some great ringtone-like loops, that fitted perfectly into the ambient-music that was playing here. Smoothing and inspiring. Well designed. Definitely worth a try.
