“Cowbell? Rubber Chicken? I thought you said this update was about creating music!” These two gadgets were inspired by this Saturday Night Live sketch: https://youtu.be/cVsQLlk-T0s and this beautiful symphony: https://youtu.be/lN3QQ0MX94U.

In addition to releasing new gadgets, we’ve also built a new environment! We’re calling this environment the ‘Study’ and it’s purposely designed to offer a building canvas that’s different from the ‘Apartment’ environment. The ‘Study’ environment offers better support for the building of musical machines with taller ceilings and differently sloped surfaces. It’s available in the Sandbox mode.
