Music Visualization

Have you ever been annoyed by so-called visualizers, that produce stunning 3D effects, but don’t seem to react to the music you are playing? Have you ever been disappointed because the visualization plugin you learned to love was only available for a very specific player application? Have you ever wished you could visualize sounds coming from outside your Computer – something like your voice, or the noise made by your cat destroying another expensive vase?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you might like:


fische – and no, the name is not supposed to make sense – and yes, I did know the word fische means fish in German – is a standalone sound visualization program. Unlike visualization plugins, fische will accept and process sound data from almost anywhere: the music you are playing on your computer, a microphone, a line-in connection provided by your sound card – you name it!

fische was originally written for Linux, but has been successfully built and run also on OS-X and Windows. The most recent version can be downloaded via the link on the right side of the page.
