    NOTE: I figured I would get more responses here, I feel like the iTunes forum is not frequented as often.

    The new iTunes 8 one? The one from iTunes 7? Or one of the pre-installed ones on iTunes 8 (Lathe, Jelly, Stix)? Or do you use a plug-in?

    I used to use the one from 7, when I still had it, but the main reason I downloaded 8 was for the new visualizer, my new one. What's yours?

    I much prefer the old itunes visualizer, but generally I don't use a visualizer at all because it a) winds up my fan b) distracts me utterly and completely from whatever I was doing and I wind up staring stupidly into it for an hour. ;)

    Yeah...that's why I only use it when I have the time. But I still much prefer the new one.

    I've hardly ever used the ones in iTunes, but I must say that I'm liking the new one in iTunes 8.

    If I want a visualizer I change from Fliqlo to Soundstream - it's that awesome audio-responsive screensaver. The music runs in the background.. Works great!

    okay granted it's not the high-octane version you get with iTunes or 3rd-party apps, but it actually doesn't heat my system up as much, and is more responsive to the sound it seems..

    Well, I used to use G-Force and WhiteCap a bunch, but since 1) getting an Intel Mac, and 2) upgrading to iTunes 8, I can't use them without subscribing just for some updates. :rolleyes:
    So I've been using the new one (Magnetosphere). I really wish it could be a screensaver, because it's really sweet!

    So?

    Is that any good? Do you have a link?

    Link? I may actually use a screen saver if it does that.

    What I think is interesting is that so far the poll says everyone uses iTunes 8 default, yet most people who post say they are using something else. Perhaps I was not clear enough; by default iTunes 8 I mean the improved Magnetosphere one.

    So I never saw the magnetosphere visualizer until it was rumored to be the iTunes 8 visualizer. I got super pumped, I thought it looked killer. Now that I have iTunes 8, I'm thoroughly bummed, it doesn't look anything like videos I saw of magnetosphere. And, you can't download it anymore, their site says it's in iTunes now. I'm just wondering, is anyone else let down? and Where can I get a mind blowing visualizer?


    Edit:

    Question: Could it be lame because I don't have leopard yet? or Maybe, I have a lowly 2Ghz macbook? I'm just looking for reasons, the vids of magnetosphere were wicked and what I see is weak.

    It might be the second reason and your computer is just struggling to display it right. Me, I think it's awesome (but I also have a 2nd gen Al iMac 2.4 Ghz, so my computer is significantly faster than yours).

    A bit more tame than your usual threads?

    I use none of the visualizers, right now my visualizer is set to iConcertCal.

    What do you mean a bit more tame than my usual threads? Go to my profile and see the threads I've started, as far as I can tell I've only started two racy threads to date.

    sorry, I guess those two threads are how I know you. I don't think I've participated in your other less racy threads.

    Check out my profile. I think my favorite forum is the Community forum; so many people answer, you get to know the opinions of so many different people. I just started those two threads because I felt like it.

    EDIT: Woo! 500 posts (that count, anyway, since my masturbation thread got moved to the political forum, causing me to lose posts)! Now, to choose an avatar...
