Pulse’s eight core tracks were composed in-house by Dain Saint and Kerry Gilbert. Beyond those few tracks, we are proud to showcase a variety of music created by talented independent musicians primarily in the Philadelphia area.

USING TIME SIGNATURES TO ENRICH THE EXPERIENCE

By adapting the geography of a level to its song’s time signature, we were able to create a unique rhythm experience. For example, let’s say a particular song has a 4/4 time signature. We’ll setup the level to have either 4 or 8 rings. What about a time signature like 3/4 — for example, a waltz? We’ll use 6 rings. Each pulse then represents one to two full measures of that song. This allows a freedom of form rarely seen in rhythm games and really completes the experience. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

LOCAL ARTISTS AND GREAT MUSIC. COMING MONTHLY. FREE.

Music is great. New music is even better. That’s why we are releasing 4 new tracks for Pulse each month. These tracks are hand-picked from local Philadelphia independent artists — many of them written specifically for Pulse! On top of just releasing sick new levels to play, we’re conducting interviews with artists and showcasing a growing music community.
