Great product. Especially free.

Some beautiful visuals, and just an example of what visuals can be made with the VJ program. Unfortunately, this is the first time I picked up this visualizer in years (not since SoundJam MP was the program to have, and osx wasn't out yet).

So I can't find any home made visual files anywhere on the internet. Does anyone know where to find some? It doesn't seem that there exists a "User Zone" on arkaos's website anymore. And the forums don't have anything.

Either way, great adjustments for beat sensitivity, and so on. Beautiful and optimized rendering. Full screen mode is smooth and beautiful. Best visualizer that I can find... GForce is good though. There are other nice ones, but arKaos's is beautiful, simply put. Stable and easy to work.

One of the nicest visualizer I've found for itunes... At times like watching a music video (in a good way). Fun... thanks.

Another arrow to have in your visuals quiver, but as Eric writes below, it is jerky and doesn't seem to move with the music. Some interesting visuals, but the smoothness of the iTunes or G-Force (www.55ware.com) visuals are not as good.

Unique Graphics.Easy to install with itunes.

Graphics do seem to get a little "wild", and they don't appear to be in sync with the music played.

More variety than the standard iTunes visuals. Perhaps a little erratic though. I can't quite meditate on these and relax.(Yah Dig?)
Cool all the same.
