How many colors can Specdrums play at once?
Specdrums can reliably differentiate a maximum of about twelve distinct colors at once (for example, the twelve colors provided on the play pad) given a wide range of tap angles. When a new color is calibrated that's too similar in hue and saturation to a previous color, that previous color will be disabled to prevent misreads. You can calibrate your Specdrums Ring to any colored surface in the world. Bright, saturated colors are recommended as they are easier to differentiate.
