There is a version 2 out. Developer says it works with iTunes 11 / 64bit.
I don't though how it works since I'm not going to use iTunes 11 - I just love coverflow too much.
you have to rate this in order to make your review - so I give it another 5 stars -- for version 1.
I'm not sure if this Visualizer is Leopard friendly per se, but I'm having issues getting the track info to display consistently.
I have track info to always be shown, but it doesn't normally appear until after I've skipped forward or backward a song. Then after that song is over, the track info fails to refresh with the more current track's info as I suspect it's supposed to.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
Absolutely awesome visualiser. Every time I open it, I'm glued to the screen for a while. Been following it since birth over at the ars forum, hot stuff. Particularly since the autopilot function was introduced, that just blew me away. I love the 'bloom' effect you seem to be getting with very high intensity areas, looks totally awesome.
How about a feature or mode where it autopilots but within a more specific range... like the type that blooms :)
Awesome work man. You made itunes that much cooler!
This would be even more intriguing with both scaling and wave orientation added to the autopilot. Especially the first aspect might not make that much of a difference visually to some; but to those with a discerning eye, I think so.
Would it even be possible to integrate background color interpolation into auto mode, too?
A true winner! It makes my ATI-Radeon processor earn it's keep! A great iTunes visualizer, and it's free! (However, it's well worth a donation to the developer to keep good things like GasLight's enhancements coming.)
Noticeable improvement over the last version. On a SP 1.8 tower, it still has some hesitation at points, but is generally much better than the last few versions. I am still dying to see a version that has a response like vTunes - Plasma. If you can get the response rate like that, I would easily pay money for it.
Great update: Fixes a problem i had with a non-responding GUI in iTunes on my 1GHz PowerBook, the developer devoted a lot of time to helping me sort this out, and now it's running great.
Can't ask for anything better!
Would be quite nice if it didn't keep freezing every half a second for half a second. On my G4 iMac It claims it's running at 20fps, but it looks crummy. My iTunes window is only about 1/6 of the screen size too. No, I'm not running anything else significant. iTunes has ~13%, WindowServer ~5%, Safari ~6%, Activity Monitor ~3%, Finder
Absolutely amazing. Stunning presets. Doesn't push my little CPU as much as some others. Price is right too :)
~70frames/sec @ 1024x768 fullscreen, on my PB12"/867MHz/768MB
If you're getting lower frame rates at full screen on LCDs, make sure the "Fullscreen Resolution" option is set to the native resolution of the screen, usually the highest. At 640x480 I was getting only ~10frames/sec. Might be something to do with OS X's resolution scaling.
I love it! Not only is it fairly accurate (I'm using it as a monitor on a monitor in my studio) it's beautiful and fully customizable.
If you use the visualizer in iTunes this is worth your time trying out to see if you like it better than the built in one. It's not as "trippy" but in my mind, 10x more fun.
The only thing I'd like is more options but I can't really think of what I'd want.
I've discovered a slight flaw : pixel shaders aren't working on any cards except the GeforceFX and the Radeon 9600-9800.
So I'm currently rewriting things to use Cg instead of ARB_FRAGMENT_PROGRAM...it might take a while, but it should support a greater range of cards afterward.
Apologies for the screwup - that's what I get for only being able to test on one Mac...
WE ARE "NOT WORTHY"! @ 53 years old, a Bass player for 32 years, an electronics freak since 1972, I was sure I'd seen it all.
No Way! This GasLight for iTunes is by far the absolute best toy for anybodys brains. It is an excellent Audio Spectrum Analyzer as well as the most easily configured one I've ever seen.
ThankYou for writing this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow. "Just another iTunes visualizer" I thought as I downloaded it. I download them all out of curiosity but am rarely blown away. Enter Gaslight. This is hands down my favourite visualizer now. It is awesome. I spent about 30 seconds customizing the ample array of well laid out settings to acheive a look to match my shinobi / black & blue themed desktop, and it looks AMAZING.
It is a tragedy that there is currently no way to save these settings. This is why I dock it points. Other than that, aside from perhaps some options to customize the size, colour, font etc of the track info, this visualizer is just awesome. See for yourself.
Mr Del Strother: Please work out a way to implement preset saving quickly - this visualizer has so much potential!
