Very surprised this hasn't got a thread of its own already, it's really an amazing addition to the game, even if you don't like making music, or have no idea where to start.
For anyone who hasn't looked into this yet, a video covering the bells and the event (ensemble):
And for anyone who hasn't seen the choir bells yet, here's what they can do:
Can you guess the music/songs? :3 Some are played badly, but the timing gets hard when the delays are unpredictable ;(.
This addition is so awesome XD yes it's a mini game, yes it may just be a time waster, but the potential here is epic. If you were organized enough, you could get a bell choir going of your own, conducting all sorts of crazy nonsense. If you're a dab-hand at editing, you could effectively do it yourself.
So, who's up for doing Through the Fire and Flames?
I get that this is a joke, but the music you can make on these things is pretty limited. Other than the fact the range isn't that high, you can't hit notes too fast or they don't register/play. Or maybe it was just my sound card/lag.
I spent a few hours learning to play a dozen or so songs, it's pretty fun to do. None longer than 30s or so.
I wasted 20g gambling for the bell, now I've saved up the 50g to buy the bell but decided it's not really worth it. I could just buy 250 choir bells for 1.25g and likely I'd never use them all up. Not so sure they'd be a good investment.
