Are you tired of the 'Boring Bar Scene'?
I don't mean the place you go to knock down a few, until 1's look like 10's!

I'm talking about audio visualizers that ONLY display bars!
Variations? Oh yeah... different colors {whoopee!}, different orientation {ugh!}, random colors {yippie!}... But in the end they are still just BARS!

Now there is an alternative to the 'Boring Bar Scene' ...

Try Versa-Visualizer (Not your Father's Bar Audio Visualizer!)

If you like bars (and who doesn't!), Versa-Visualizer can do those, plus it can color co-ordinate them to your desktop, vary intensity, and animate them (wildly) if you want!

But there is much more to Versa-Visualizer than just Bars...
Slanted Bars, Rectangles, Circles, Rings, Centerline Dots, and all types of 'Wedgies'!

And these shapes don't just go up & down like bars.
Versa-Visualizer lets you select a static vertical and horizontal dispersion, or use Beat Animation, with Smooth (Vertical Only) or Manic (both Horizontal and Vertical) movement.

Versa-Visualizer also lets you:
Create, Save, and Select Styles 
Create, Save, and Select Color Schemes

So get out of the bar, and give something different a try... after playing with Versa-Visualizer, you'll never want to go back to boring bars!

Enjoy a few on me!

NOTICE: Larger image sizes and animation can load down some CPUs, so reasonable choices are recommended; just like when drinking!

WARNING: If you are updating and want to save any styles or color schemes you created, you must manually copy those folders to a location outside of the Skins\Versa-Visualizer folder, then copy them back after updating.

HISTORY

V 1.2017.03.26
:bulletgreen: Added horizontal expand/contract animation to Horizontal and Vertical versions
:bulletgreen: Added invisible backgrounds for better mouse click detection
:bulletyellow: Modified animation selection from left mouse single click to left mouse double-click. Prevents accidental animation changes
:bulletyellow: Updated PDF Information and Instruction document (link is above)

V 1.2017.03.19 Update (Correction!):
:bulletyellow: Added Shape Animation back into the context menu options for the Circle version Doh!
:bulletgreen: Added invisible meter to allow better control of the Circle version animation (Now click anywhere near it!)

V 1.2017.03.16 Update:
:bulletgreen: Added optional Cover Art
:bulletyellow: Added shadow effect to Title text
May add a Duration indicator to cover in the near future :/

V 1.2017.02.03 Update:
:bulletgreen: Add optional BaseLine/CenterLine to visualizers accesible in the context menu
:bulletyellow: Re-instated Spin Direction change in Circle Visualizer's context menu
:bulletyellow: Reduced the Title font to allow for more information
:bulletyellow: Beat & Spin Animation 'Toggle' added to the Circle version context menu 

V 1.2017.01.14... Added Option to toggle gradient or single color bars via context menus 

V 1.2017.01.12... Circle Version :: Added SpinBeat Reverse Animation | Expanded Animation Menu

V 1.2016.11.17 Update: 
:bulletyellow: Removed the automatic loading of the monitor skins... they could cause Rainmeter to crash when the visualizers are first loaded.
You can still load the monitor skins (suggested to do so) from the context menu after opening the visualizer, to reduce the system load when you are not listening to music.
 
V 1.2016.11.05 Update:
Added New Features:
:bulletgreen: Open Style Editor to edit current selected style from the Style List via middle mouse click
:bulletgreen: SaveAs Favorite is available in editors for ALL styles (previously only showed in 'Default' style)
:bulletyellow: Corrected saving of vertical style in SaveAs setting; was incorrectly writing to horizontal style
:bulletyellow: Corrected horizontal and vertical version use of loop dispersion during vertical animations; before the display would jump when max dispersion was reached... now it is a smooth reversal of animation
Version 1.2016.11.04
Added a Minimum Shape Color 'Intensity' setting
* Originally the shape color intensity was driven solely by the audio level, so low level sounds did not show with the same intese color of louder sounds
* You can set a minimum color level for shapes. The intensity of the color will still be increased until the sounds reach maximum level
* if set to 255, then shapes are full color intensity and will resize based on sound levels
* At zero (original value), the color intensity and size are both controlled by sound levels

'Outer Ring Size' is now 'Shape Size' and 'Inner Ring' is now a 'Threshold' Level setting
* 'Outer Ring Size' actually set the 'Shape Size', so I renamed it in the Editors
* Modified the effect of the 'Inner Ring Size' setting; changed it to a 'Threshold' setting
* For Bars this sets the 'crossover' value so bars will be below and above based on the sound level (The bars will appear to flip from low side to high side)
* For Circular shapes this sets a crossover level along the diameter; the border will move outward, increasing the inside diameter of a circle the size of the threshold value. When the threshold is reached, the color will fill from the threshold to the current border sound level (It will appear as 2 types of rings)
* Optimal setting is about 1/3 ~ 1/4 of the Shape Size setting

Added Border Alpha setting
* The color intensity of the border image can be set (originally a static value of '245')

Added Vertical positioning for Circle visualizer 
* Sometimes the Circular visualizer could not be positioned high enough on the screen (Windows will not let a skin be placed above the top of the screen, even with 'Keep On Screen' disabled), using the V Position setting, the placement can be improved

Added Preset Centering via middle mouse click of <Centering> or <V Position> setting
* Each visualizer style may require a unique centering value; a middle click should get you close to the average center for each visualizer version. Scrolling the mouse over those meters will fine tune the centering of each style.
