pikaby asks: What style of Taiko note patterns do you prefer?

This will be a short question for today; what kind of note patterns do you like seeing or playing the most?

Is it regularly spaced clusters, like those in Angel Dream? Long streams of notes with no break like Yawaraka Sensha Ura? Or do you prefer your note patterns to be slightly trickier, with lots of rhythm and beat signature changes?

Regularly spaced clusters and regular long streams with no handswitch are sometimes preferable because they're the easiest kind to work for accuracy, since you're following a constant rhythm. You don't see many DFCs of extreme shifting-BPM songs like Etude Op.10-4!

Also the topic on drumrolls; like em or hate em? Personally I love having drumrolls around, especially on console Taiko. Together with accuracy grinding, having lots of drumrolls around allows for so much more room for score attacking. One great example is Memeshikute. Constant rhythm with tons of the yellow bars, small and large. Drumroll till your heart's content, or until your arms break, whichever comes first!

Also how many of you are keen on the newer gimmicks like using faster/slower note scrolling speed, impossible balloon notes and stuff like Suuhaa 2000? (yes, the entire chart is a gimmick I swear. Doesn't stop it from being fun, but still)

A live conference at NicoRadio on Monday revealed this little bit about Taiko no Tatsujin's appearance at the NicoNico Super Conference 2, which will be held on April 27th and 28th, and will feature, among performances by musicians and music-playing tips, a free-to-play cabinet of Taiko 0 Sorairo, with songs that are not on the current networked build.
