This could be an iPad app that shows up as an instrument that
enables many-person low-entry-barrier jams by having a
standard metronome and responding to variation from the
metronome beat with adaptively corrected modulation of the
audio output. So, if you get off beat the system changes your
sound so that it is more mushy, or so that it doesn't have a
sharp attack and release. Your sound would only gain a sharp
attack / release if you are consistently on beat, and you
would be "punished" for varying from the beat with a slow
attack sound that is adaptively coordinated with the other
sounds in the jam.
