Frost, desktop music visualizer by alatsombath Frost, desktop music visualizer by alatsombath
Realtime music visualizer for your Windows desktop!  Boo  See demo videos on YouTube

1. Get Rainmeter for free from rainmeter.net
2. Download the skin from the right side of this page. If nothing downloads, right-click > "Open link in new tab"
3. Open the file with the green raindrop icon and click "Install" in the pop-up window
4. Left-click on the spectrum to customize settings.

v2.3 (24 Apr 2016) Full changelog - Cross-referenced changes from Fountain of Colors. Performance tweaks.

To increase precision and performance, decrease your audio device's sampling rate. Right-click volume tray icon > "Playback devices" > Follow this image

If you're updating from an older version and feel that the audio output is mistimed or unimproved, you might need to go to the settings window to apply "reset audio settings..." and tweak it from there.

If it doesn't show on the desktop, try the following:
•  Open Volume Mixer and check if Rainmeter's volume is unmuted
•  In the skin's installer window, check the box "Load included skins"
•  In the skin's settings window, set the skin to use a different audio device
•  Disable external software with sound processing and effects such as MSI Nahimic

My visualizer just disappeared without any reason. None of the Variables are set to -1 or anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,
this is for me the best visualizer! A big thank to you for sharing!
But i have a problem with beta-version of Rainmeter. When i use your skin with a version of Rainmeter after the last final-release, the CPU has heavy overload!
With the last final-release, i have no Problems!
There are any other user with the same CPU-overload?!

You can simply change the values in the install folder.
go to: This PC -> Documents -> Rainmeter -> Skins -> Frost -> recources
select the Variables folder and there you can change multiple settings.

the hub for frost got too outdated and without new releases it stopped working.

Dont forget to press save as well as the reset button in the rainmeter app, otherwise the new values wont be loaded in.

if you open the rainmeter app and go in the frost folder, right click on frost.ini file to Edit.
You can can change the angles in steps of 90°.

Dont forget to save the file and refresh the rainmeter app.

Had the same issue. You need to go open the "GenerateBands" folder and load the "GenerateMeters.ini" file. Should appear then.

it doesn't work for me, no matter what i try (sadly). however, i found instructions that might be of help to anyone here:

- Go to Documents>Rainmeter>Skins>Frost>resources and open Variables.inc set the variables you want and save it.

- Then go to the frost effect and click right and refresh the skin it will disappear (The problem that everybody has).

- Then install it again without deleting or removing it from rainmeter, it will start with the settings you set in the variables.inc

I installed this but I have a problem. Whenever I try to change the number of peaks, height and width, the values go to -1 and I cannot change them at all. Is there a reason for this?

If settings are changing to -1 just go to Documents > Rainmeter > Skins > Frost > @ Resources > Variables.inc and change the settings from there. After changing settings go in Rainmeter and load GenerateBands.ini.

How can I rotate it to 360 or something else manually?
