Install Rainmeter. Download the SoundSquare package from the download link to the upper right.
Double-click that file to install the skins in Rainmeter.
Load a version of the skin. Play some music.

If that doesn't work, I do not know how else to help...

Version 1.2018.01.24 has changes to enhance color gradient use and options!

The included color schemes were modified to take advantage of the addition of the Chameleon plugin by socks-the-fox and re-arranged in the list by similar patterns.

Desktop wallpaper colors can be incorporated into any of the current schemes.
You can modified and save as a new scheme by naming it the next number in the sequence.

NOTE: The numbered schemes MUST be named with sequential numbers!
If you don't do that, you will see an ugly blue coloration for the missing scheme number. :)

Thanks! :bow:

It started with simple expanded squares, then, as usual, I couldn't resist tweaking it!  :lol:

sorry, but doesn't works

What you mean is "It doesn't work for you." ... 2,600 other people have downloaded and are using.
It works fine if you have the latest Rainmeter installed and do not have a program running on your PC that takes exclusive control of your audio.

If you can describe what happens, I may be able to suggest solutions. First try these help tips

Instead of the Squares disappearing after there is no sound, is there a way to keep the squares still visible?
Eclectic-Tech's avatar
You can have the frames and cross lines always visible by adding a semi-colon ( ; ) to all 4 Hidden=... lines in the meters of each skin.
But the actual shapes intensity (visibility) are driven by the audio level, so when there is no sound, the shapes are invisible.
