In this paper we present a novel system for tactile actuation in stylus-based musical interactions. The proposed controller aims to support rhythmical musical performance. The system builds on resistive force feedback, which is achieved through a brakeaugmented ball pen stylus on a sticky touch-sensitive surface. Along the device itself, we present musical interaction principles that are enabled through the aforementioned tactile response. Further variations of the device and perspectives of the friction-based feedback are outlined.
