Colorgasm Music Visualizer

While exploring the flash.sampler API this morning, I whipped together a quick demo to test its output when rapidly creating / deleting objects.

The demo turned out kind of cool in it’s own right, so I thought I’d post it. Nothing incredible, but you’ve gotta love what you can accidentally create in a couple hours and 1.8kb in Flash.

Note that I’m too lazy to add a preloader, so nothing will happen until it loads the 5.4MB music file.

One day maybe I’ll play with this some more, tie in proper spectrum analysis, a preloader, etc. *shrug* The Hype framework would probably work great as a starting point for that.

  7. Cool! I love this kind of spontaneous work. Starting up by testing something and ending up with a cool demo. =) This actually gave me a few ideas for a some not so necessary but cool projects. =)

    I’ve been working on a color filter for pixel bender and it would be cool to connect it to music.

    If you like you can try the filter at
