> The most awaited Samurize Plugin which works for ANY MEDIA PLAYER, (WMP, VLC, iTunes, WinAMP, foobar2000, Firefox, IE, Media Monkey...) is here

> This is a highly configurable spectrum analyzer / VU meter. It's NOT tied to any specific player, NOR does it require any plugins to be used by your music player. It analyzes the audio output of the sound card in REALTIME: it works with music, games, TV, DVD, etc.

:? Installation :?
> Watch this video for installation www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jWJpV…
> See included instructions in the download for setting up.

> This plugin Works by analyzing your sound output via the "Stereo Mix" Device. It WON'T WORK if you don't have it. You may try updating your audio card drivers.

Do you have any solution for Windows 10 users? Samurize doesn't work for 10.

I've run into a unique issue where I can load samurize, change configs, and see the visualizer, but it doesn't move. It only shows the bars as if there were no input. I have the default input device correct and working. I have re-installed and re-started. I have all the correct files in the correct directories.

Hey works great love it! Thank you! Only one problem / question. Works perfictly when im playing it through my computer speakers, but when I change my audio output device to my USB headset the EQ stops. Volume and music and all is still there but it only picks up the music when its through the regular speakers output. Any way to make it so it does the same when listening to my headset instead??? Thanks!

doesn't support usb headsets...sorry
Cyberi's avatar
Actually it can work with USB headset too if you install Voicemeeter so that all audio goes thru it (including usb headset)
I use the Voicemeeter banana version and it works with Samurize/SpecGP...
I have two outputs defined in voicemeeter one being speakers and other is my Razer USB headset.
When I want to switch between speakers and headset I just mute one output and unmute other output in voicemeeter control panel.
In windows my "default sound device" is VoiceMeeter Input.
