Let yourself feel by Esteban Diácono

A piece of art! I love how he used the music to drive the beautiful visuals. I find it totally mesmerizing. / Peder

Esteban notes: "I've used Trapcode Particular 2 to create the particles, of course, and two Trapcode Sound Keys layers to drive the position, velocity and a few turbulence and spin parameters."

Hypnotic. The particles get a life of their own. Sad and beautiful!

Amazing! Have been trying to get my mind around the same concept - I wish I would have thought of something like this earlier! This is just beautiful.

Not sure if Estaban reads these but the big question I have is how were the particles split on the piano and violin, I read somewhere it was TWO sound key layers. But it has been almost impossible to get a straight answer anywhere on HOW to soundkey this; is it two separate tracks? ( I'm toying with a Mancini piece with violin and piano so its quite similar).

@Mark: Sorry, i always forget to check these comments!

I used ONE soundkeys layer, but separated outputs for the piano and the violin. The track is pretty simpler, if you look at the soundkeys spectrum, its very easy to "separate" the two drivers.

Please make a tutorial for how you achieved such soft looking particles. What settings did you use in particular? I know the music part but can't quite figure out how to set up the particles to look this way.

Hi Yan,

This is pretty close I think:
