Audio-Kinetic Structure: Sound Thing

iTunes Visualizer plug-in for Mac OS X. Made this a while back. It's really hard to screencapture this visualizer, but there is a lame attempt:

Better to get the real plugin and run (if you have a Mac!)

Download: SoundThing.bundle.zip  

Another iTunes visualizer is Klangfarbe, it has a better screencap video and more install instructions.


Trapcode Klangfarbe - Free iTunes Visualizer plug-in for Mac OS X

This plug-in is still in beta and does not work with all graphics cards, please let me know if it works with yours!

In my first visualizer - AlphaOmega - I tried to envision a form or geometry for the music. This one, Klangfarbe deals more directly with visualizing the current audio as colors, hence the name which is German for "timbre" but also means "color of the timbre" or "color of the sound".


Free for personal, home, non-commercial use. For other use, please contact peder /dot/ norrby (at) gmail /dot/ com. This free software is provided as is, with no guarantees whatsoever.


It has a few settings:

Press "m" key to toggle modes, there are three modes and the first two are animated (they change slowly over time)
Press "f" key to change particle feather / out-of-focus effect.

Install help
