Hmm this sounds like megabuf work.
an idea for a preset to check out that matchs the description of this idea would be Pak-9's Droplets preset.
It uses music instead of bass hits to move its particles but the principle is still the same.
The louder the bass hit the higher the balls go.
As far as idiots go i'm not sure.
But as far as genius goes again i'm not sure. Now when it comes to imagination now thats another story.
