I think the best visualizer is the one that is built into iTunes, however the best one on the PC is G-force http://www.55ware.com/ and it also works on the Mac.

I like G-Force better than the one that comes with iTunes.

Another vote for G-Force from me. The original and best. It has tons more configs and stuff to play with.

Isn't the iTunes built in visualiser based upon the same code? G-Force is open source after all.

G-Force is soft and isn't exactly...involved.

Try Fielder (http://sonomatics.com/fielderITPlug.sit).
(40KB download, about 15 seconds with 28.8K)

My instructions:

(1) Install the plug-in at:
[user]/Library/iTunes/"iTunes Plug-ins"

(2) Restart iTunes.

(3) Turn off full screen res.

(4) Turn on fielder visuals.

(5) Go into Options.

(6) Click on Erase Vectors, uncheck Vertically Place Vectors, and set the frame rate to 1.


Here's how this works. The bars in the visual move from one side to the other, depending on the song. The left side of the visual corresponds to your left ear. The right side corresponds to your right ear. The position of the bars indicates where inside your brain you feel the most intense sound.

BTW: This was mentioned in the July issue of MacAddict, with 100 freebie apps.

Check it out. It's not what you would expect, but it's appealing.

I'm looking for a spectrum analyzer visual. I've already got Volcano Kit, but i'm looking for something a little more pretty :) Any info?
