Sound Visualisation

There’s a lot of ways to do this. Processing is great for developing your own code. TouchDesigner is better for 3D tho :sunglasses:

I’ve made a few little things with processing like pixel shifting images and generative systems. The interface in Touch Designer is really appealing.

Milkdrop ring a bell to anyone? Was part of WinAmp.
I’ve still got it somewhere on a windows machine and might have a standalone .exe of it, needs a screen recorder like FRAPS or similar. Anyone else used it for generative visualisation?

i was looking into this subject of visuals syncing with sound…

theres a real neat demo of Magic Music Visuals which is a very well made application on the PC, which utilises the graphics card for realtime manipulation of visuals either via midi CC’s/notes etc but can also sync to a frequency spectrum…
Its very easy to understand, and uses a modular method of handling visuals… which should be very intuitive for modular based synth people out there…

heres a 6yr old video of a user showing the application… in the video he toggles the modules on/off to step through the visual sequence that he has created to give the basis of how the application works.
