Soundstream is a Mac OS X screensaver created with Quartz Composer. It consists of a randomly moving particle generator (reminiscent of Flurry) that reacts to the sound level and pitch picked up by your computer's microphone.

Soundstream looks great as a replacement to the iTunes visualizer, pulsing appropriately to the music.

Also works without a microphone or using the Line In version available on the FAQ page.

What's New

Version 1.5:
  • "Alternate stream blooming"
  • Improved random particle positions
  • Improved 3D visuals
  • Improved version checking
  • Graphical splash screen


  • Mac OS X 10.4.4 or later
  • Quartz Extreme

Flawless. Nice options and very well done.

Not to mention so tiny and puts to shame the other few thingy's/screensavers similar to this.

Well worth a download and look.

No complaints for FREE and thanks to the developer(s)!
