If you’re like me and love being able to hear and see your favorite music in all its glory, then Winamp MilkDrop is the perfect visualization tool for you. Originally a plug-in for the Winamp music player, and now available as OSS. The key thing about MilkDrop isn’t just that it’s free and user friendly, it’s the beautiful art that it creates. It gives your music the ability to dance and become astounding visual forms that create masterpieces of psychedelic moving colors and shapes that bend and curve in time and across frequencies.

If the huge array of stock pre-sets don’t cut it for you, then create your own visualizations using the built-in language, which you can download as a zip from Source Forge. It builds using C++ 2008 and there are free downloads available from Microsoft. Modify the visuals using the amplitude and frequencies that resonate with you. There’s a whole pre-set authoring community that is dedicated to making the visuals bend and turn in ways that allow the programme to continue to evolve and develop utilising the power of the pixel shaders, why not join them? Each pre-set has a certain look and feel, created by a dozen or so short pieces of computer and/or shader code, as well as several dozen variables that can be tuned. You can follow the tutorials and join the forums to ask questions and get guidance on how to create your own masterpieces. The 2007 update MilkDrop 2 works with any graphics processor, but to enable the complete range of creative effects available, you will need a GPU that can run Shader Model 3 or greater and can also be run as a stand alone.

MilkDrop is a 3D accelerated plugin that uses 3D graphics hardware to create a visual effects through sound unlike any you have seen before.

Winamp may seem to have been pushed aside by the likes of Spotify and Pandora but it is simple to use for downloading, and you can store everything you need locally. There is still a hardcore geek following that appreciates its user-friendly features and the fact that you maintain control over your downloads. Both MilkDrop 1 and MilkDrop 2, source code (as well as AVS) is freely available so it can also be used as basis for other projects as well. There’s still a consensus that no other visualizer created recently looks as good or can sync to the music as well as MilkDrop. It plays FLAC, MP3, OGG, and online radio streams whilst only using 16 meg of RAM and “zero percent CPU”. It loads instantly and supports global hotkeys and has an equalizer which is totally fit for purpose alongside being super reliable. There are modern skins available to keep the front end relevant with its visual display and its flexible GPU driven visualization engine, in conjunction with the pixel shaders, make it truly stand out.

This customizable Winamp media player plays mp3 and other audio files, syncs to your iPod, subscribes to Podcasts, and more. If you are not already using MilkDrop head to the net and grab the latest version of Winamp, you won’t be disappointed. The visualization community is waiting.

As a Winamp user you will already be familiar with the fact that WinAmp is a longstanding tool for listening to and cataloguing your music.

Winamp Visualization

It works as a one stop shop for managing your music library and it’s still free.  It allows you to sync your music collection to an MP3 player or smartphone, and you can also stream it over the internet, allowing you to share your favorite tunes with your friends. There have been other cataloguing tools that have come along but for sheer control of your own downloads it still stands out from the crowd as a powerful and customizable tool. WinAmp is also light compared to something like Itunes which has become an insatiable resource muncher. Additionally, you would be hard pressed to find another that’s as open to adding as many additional plug-ins. New skins also help to keep things fresh along with the vast array of plug ins available in the catalogue which give you the ability to boost 3D sound, graphic equalizers, crossfading, and support for the lossless FLAC format but for me the key thing is the visualizations that it allows you to create.

When it comes to the visualizations there are a few built in standard options but there is still a huge community of current users that are actively developing exceptional plug ins to expand and improve it, so it never stands still. An array of spectral visualizations that you’re able to enjoy while listening to your favorite tracks is one of the best things ever invented. Initially music visualizers were the exclusive concern of music and tech nerds but with the more user friendly and specific plug in’s more people discovered the beauty of what they could create based on the audio frequencies and amplification of each track. Effective music visualization aims to attain a high degree of visual correlation between a track’s specific characteristics and the objects or components of the visual image being rendered and displayed.
These often, spectral visualizations allow you to fully personalise your listening experience onto a real time moving canvass, so you can immerse yourself in your music by creating an ever-changing spectacle of colour and movement. Techniques can range from super simple to gorgeously elaborate, which can often include a multitude and plurality of composited effects. The changes in the music’s loudness and frequency spectrum are often the key.

If you have put your creative side away maybe it’s time to dust of the jacket and take out your vinyl collection or old CD’s and explore the new catalogue available so you can take a walk on the visual wild side.

Huge archive of Winamp Visualizations. Over 2500 files in one archive. Winamp visualization will generate images and video based on the music being played.

Winamp may seem to have to gone by the wayside in terms of technical advancement as a media player but this is not the case at all. Although it’s 21 years old it still commands a well-regarded fanbase and a big reason for this is the huge range of free and paid for plug-ins that are available. The 3rd party plug-ins architecture enables you to extend Winamp’s flexibility to do what you require with Input, Output, Visualization, Digital signal processing/effects, Media library, mobile and general purpose and are quick and easy to download. The majority of plug-ins work on a local cache rather than live queries against the Icecast, SHOUTcast and Tunein services.

The general purpose plug-ins catalogue even includes everyday features which you can run, like an alarm clock, and the User Interface can be customized to your individual tastes and preferences. You can change your UI as often as you choose and save them as different installs. This comes on handy when you have you have more than one user. Some other examples of fun plug-ins are the CDG karaoke Plugin which is a free and safe plug-in you can use to play CDG files (mp3+g) in sync with MP3. SoftAmp Virtual Sound Winamp plug-in for 3D sound produces a three dimensional sound with four independent virtual speakers and enjoy the sound coming from above or from above and the reverberation effect is provided. You can even download the Pac-man game for free and relieve your youth!

The more serious and practical plug-ins such as the multiple DSP stacker allow you to stack as many plug-ins inside Winamp as you want, allowing you to manage everything from one place. Also available is the Waveform Seeker Plug-in v2.3.1 which defines the waveform output of a selected file which you can then use to search or seek within the file and allows you to maximize the potential within that file.

The Winamp software development kit even allows you, as a user, to create your own plug-ins across the 7 different categories such as output and input for specific projects to determine the outcomes you want to achieve. They also allow you to remove certain features that you don’t need or want, so you’re not stuck with built in facilities that take up valuable storage space. You manage your media player software, it doesn’t manage you.  There are numerous forums available on the net to discuss which plug-in will work best for what you want to do. Being a member of the forums is a great way to talk to like-minded people with a passion for the software and to continually grow your Winamp capabilities. It’s also your chance to change Winamp along the way and keep it fresh, relevant and in development.

If you haven’t had a look at the catalogue and range of plug-ins available in a while, then why not start downloading today and start experimenting today. Happy fine tuning!
