Since it isn’t any sort of game, instead a nifty music-making app, it’s hard to “rate” among its peers
For those looking less to play a game and more to compose some music via your Switch, this toolset will allow you to not only do so, but share it with others (as well as enjoying music from others). After choosing which set of instruments you’d like to feature (both traditional and more whimsical) you’ll be able to begin cobbling together your musical masterpiece note by note. For the most part the controls are implemented intuitively, I’d say it only took a few minutes of experimentation to get a grasp of what I could and couldn’t do, but at the same time more guidance on getting started is missed. As someone who dabbled in MIDI way back when on my PC this was fun for a little bit, just playing with it to make something simple, but for those inclined to make their own creations or convert music they love it could be a good time. The big benefit, once people hopefully get rolling with it, is the ability to share your music online (no Nintendo Online subscription is required) and then enjoy tunes made by others. This will ultimately need a community in order to reach its potential, something that can’t be predicted, but it seems to hit the sweet spot of being approachable while offering just enough complexity to let you create some decent music.
