Realtime music visualizer for your Windows desktop! See demo videos on YouTube
1. Get Rainmeter for free from rainmeter.net
2. Download the skin from the right side of this page. If nothing downloads, right-click > "Open link in new tab"
3. Open the file with the green raindrop icon and click "Install" in the pop-up window

v2.3 (24 Apr 2016) Full changelog - Cross-referenced changes from Fountain of Colors. Performance tweaks.
To increase precision and performance, decrease your audio device's sampling rate. Right-click volume tray icon > "Playback devices" > Follow this image
If you're updating from an older version and feel that the audio output is mistimed or unimproved, you might need to go to the settings window to apply "reset audio settings..." and tweak it from there.
If it doesn't show on the desktop, try the following:
• Open Volume Mixer and check if Rainmeter's volume is unmuted
• In the skin's installer window, check the box "Load included skins"
• In the skin's settings window, set the skin to use a different audio device
• Disable external software with sound processing and effects such as MSI Nahimic
"dgrace" - AudioLevel plugin
"HiTBiT-PA" - Color picker from Desktop VU-Meter 3
"DeltaWorks" - Wallpaper
By any chance, do you know how script this for for Geektool or Ubersicht?
I'm on Mac ... :S
Here’s the mail I got recently for my problem
Yeah, well.... This is a week old computer and I have been getting the system service exception constantly.... it is definitely related to Internet because that's when it happens... no idea what is causing it but it is continual. Hope Microsoft figures this out.... seems I'm not the only one... I am an IT manager so not an idiot when it comes to the computer.
Or otherwise try this: www.deskdecode.com/system-serv…
but i would like to know if there is a way to have a visualizer with different colours.
i would like to have 2 or 3 different colours across the bar.
i've seen many use 2 clones to get the effect but this wouldnt be ideal
all help appreciated
For some reason the ocean visualizer crashes rainmeter whenever it loads
Now, for your next trick, perhaps bass notes could be one color, treble another and midrange something between?
Also, this visualizer is by far the BEST of any other I've seen. It's creative, artistic, and still simple.
idk why this is happening so any help would be appreciated.
LE. the freeze also happens if i just click the spectrum while everything else except for youtube music and rainmeter is closed.
I wanted to produce 3 separate visualisers of different colours each resembling the lows, mids and highs of the sound output. Having attempted to use the clones to produce this effect to no avail I resorted to making 2 duplicates of the original plugin.
However, the lows and mids visualisers have sharp edges on their upper limits, despite smooth ends being enabled. The lower limits of all 3 visualisers have their ends smoothed.
If its of any use, the boundaries between the visualisers' bands are 200hz and 1000hz
Since you mentioned you couldn't recreate the issue I did some testing myself and I think I've found the cause of the clipping: It seems to happen when the number of peaks are raised above the default value of 21
I recreated the issue I was having with a fresh install of the visualiser: i.imgur.com/8GOyF56.png
The left half of the image is the visualiser with all default variables and the right half is the same visualiser with the number of samples raised 67.
I hope this helps
Seems to be causing some high cpu usage. Thanks again and sorry if I am just being dumb.
I am really not into programing and hope you can help me with my problem.
Edit: Aah damn. Nevermind found a easy fix. Uncheck in Rainmeter the option "Keep on screen" for the visualizer. The only thing I didn't try till now -_-
Do you think a color fade from bottom to top is possible?
