Sound vizualizer with Away3D

13 Nov08

I keep playing with examples for upcoming Away3D tutorials on Flashmagazine. Here’s a simple sound visualizer using Away3D. I store the average 512 samples in 20 values and use these to scale and color the cubes. I’ve spent way too much time playing with this one (without getting the results I wanted), so I better move on to the next example. I guess Beat Detection is a little harder than I thought…

This content requires Flash Player 9 (or a more recent version). You need to upgrade your Flash Player

The source will be in the tutorial and there’s no interactivity on this one, just enjoy the music:)

    Having a hard time reproducing the errors mentioned here. Works fine in IE, FF, Opera and Chrome as well as Safari and FF on a Mac when I test it. Could it be that you tested just as I uploaded a version with a path-bug? I fixed that just minutes later…

    Anyway - thanks for dropping by and giving feedback!

    Just a question though, you seems to fancy Away3D over Papervision3D. Why?

    Hei Thomas!
    I did some tests with both Away3D and PV3D about half a year ago and made my choice based on what I found. For the project I was about to do, Away 3D simply performed better. There were also some really neat things that PV3d didn’t have and I found the syntax in Away more intuitive.
