I had this problem but it seemed to resolve itself after I switched to a different background that responded to audio and then came back.

Great work, I love it. I especially like that I can put another picture in the background.

I have a secondary portrait monitor, is it possible to flip this 90 degrees so i get more visualization on the portrait monitor?

Ahhh, I see. Anyway, thanks for the sick visualizer man.

@Andromeda. And trust me. I first built it to update whenever a new Audio Data set is supplied by Wallpaper Engine. but the 20FPS experience is far worse :P
Arthesian  [author] Nov 19, 2018 @ 12:47am 
@Andromeda. This is on purpose.

The reason is, that Wallpaper Engine only supplies around 20-25 Audio Updates each second (which would result in 20-25FPS if I would update the wallpaper based on that)

To create a smoother experience. I basically 'remember' the last audio data set, and 'smooth' it to the current one (interpolation).

This way, I can create a visualizer that can render 60FPS (or more), but the trade off is a delay of 1/20th - 1/25th of a sec (~40-50ms).

Sorry for the late response btw.

Anyone know why there's a little delay in the visualizer? When a sound plays there a milisecond before displaying it, and it's really bugging me

Loving the visualizer! Was wondering if it was possible to change the individual colors of bars rather than rainbow or solid?
