In this tutorial we try out the strike and the force connection on a membrane.

To strike a membrane in modalys is pretty straight forward. But also the force connection is interesting, because it omits the necessity of a hitting object. In fact the force connection is described in the documentation as the go-to-connection whenever possible. Although controlling the force connection can need some tweaking it sounds more natural than the simple strike connection.
