Drum Machine - not very responsive

Tell us what’s happening:

My Drum machine is passing all the stories, hoorah! Time to just make it pretty and look at some extra features.

One thing that was bugging me was the responsiveness. It doesn’t seem to react very quickly to user input.

So… I decided to peek under the hood of the example given (which is so responsive) and I see it’s done in react! Is this the secret for it’s god-like speed? or is there any way of getting close to that speed using just HTML and jQuery as I have done?

(Here is the example drum machine for reference)
