VisBubble: Round Visualizer for Rainmeter by undefinist VisBubble: Round Visualizer for Rainmeter by undefinist
Star! 1 Million Views! 

VisBubble is a round audio visualizer for Rainmeter.
It reacts to the sounds on your computer.

  1. How do I access the settings?
    Access the settings by double-clicking the skin, or via right-click context menu. You can also open the skin SettingsWindow.ini
    The raw settings file is Rainmeter/Skins/VisBubble/

  2. How do I only detect sound from a single application?
    You can't. You can only detect sounds from a single input/output source.
    However, you can make VisBubble only appear when you play music. To do so, open and set your player & HideWhenNotPlaying to 1.

  3. This skin uses too much CPU! How do I reduce CPU usage?
    Reducing the Num Of Items can reduce the CPU usage. Also, you can increase the skin's Update (right-click, Edit Skin, change the Update= value at the top)

  4. This skin isn't working?
    There are many possible problems, check out this post for troubleshooting.

  5. I can't drag VisBubble too high up, when I do it'll snap to another position!
    Right-click the skin, click Manage Skin, untick Keep On Screen. Then, modify the x and y position directly by typing.

  6. How do I use the color picker?
    Select the color in the main window. The right bar is the brightness. The bottom bar is the transparency.
    After that, hit the bottom right box (which shows your new color) to confirm.

  7. How do I use the gradient editor?
    Click inside the bar to add a new point. Right-click a point to delete it.

Wallpaper used for preview: Prime
Some other visualizer skins like MetalCactuar's Visualizer and Monstercat Visualizer for cross-referencing

I love it. Great work.

After starting with your skin, the VisBubble Settings window was not responding at all. I had my skins located in a subfolder of "i:\Eigene Dateien\...\Rainmeter". After moving all my skins into "i:\configs\Rainmeter" it worked fine.
It seems that your skin dont like to be in a path with empty strings.
However, if i look into logging of Rainmeter, iget following errors:

Any ideas?

Hey, sorry! I fixed the bug regarding paths with spaces. Those errors.. you can ignore them... Blush  (they only appear every time you open the settings window)

doesnt work with music. 
is this compatible with Win10?
TheBadong Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2018
Hi ! 
Is it possible to only detect sound from a player like spotify ?
It hides automatically when I'm not playing any music, but when I play some, I can see the visualizer affected by voices over discord. I've set the player to spotify in the settings already.
Thanks in advance ^^
dustinwhitelock Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2018
Works fine for me!
Any .rmskin for showing now playing for Groove and Spotify? Tried a few, none of them work.
limzhengyue Featured By Owner May 30, 2018
Works when: Speakers - My Headphone is the Default Device.
Does not work when: Speakers - Realtek High Definition Audio is the Default Device.

Any advice is appreciated. thanks

If anyone in the future has problems with this I have found a solution. Go to your sound options and right click which audio output your wanting to use. Then click on "configure speakers". I set mine up on "7.1" surround and it works perfect now, but I'm not sure about the other options and I don't really wanna mess with it anymore lol. Its probably just because it was set to stereo by default. Thanks guys and hope this helps !

When I increase the extrude, I get a limit to move the visbubble. I try to move it up but it returns to its position. Is that a bug or something?

This skin is awesome but i've a got 1 problem with it. If i activate the WaveStereo and the music is turned off there is still a circle. Is there any way to remove it?

You can make VisBubble only appear when you play music. To do so, open and set your player & HideWhenNotPlaying to 1.

jrizz43 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2018  Hobbyist Artist
Love it. I was wondering if it was possible to straighten out the bubble (make it a straight line that does the same thing?)
AngelLonely Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2018
Very nice, thanks! And you provided a volunteering purchase option too ;-;
naazluvuall Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2018
best visualizer so far , loved it! just one problem , it uses 15-25% cpu , even on ideal . i don't know if it's due to skin or may be because i have shitty laptop

If you use third party software for your sound card try to uninstall it and restart your computer.

is there any way to get a second visbubble?
Tar-Anarion Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Just one small thing, how do you change the color? The color picker for gradient or solid don't respond, so I can only go either all white or a white/black gradient.
onurariman Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2017
how can i download the old versions ? i want to use a bubble like the topic's picture.

Is there a way to edit the sensitivity of the visualiser? 
GamesKingRo Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2017
yes, but you have to go into the notes to switch directly from there
REDKNIGHT1102 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2017  Hobbyist Artist
It worked wonderfully, but now it won't go at all.  I tried changing it to input, and it did the trick, but I want to come from the output.  Is there any way to fix that?
JosephBrian Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2017
This skin is really good!
but here's one negative point about it..
my cpu usage is high when this skin is not in use.. sometimes rainmeter goes upto 60%+ during visbubble idle state..
as soon as i turn some music up and visbubble starts animations cpu usage gets normal i.e not more than 5%...
its a bug i think..
any solution for this?
23andrew94 Featured By Owner Edited Oct 31, 2017
The color of that last bar cannot be changed. It stays white. Other than that its a pretty neat skin!

Edit: Color can only be changed directly through
23andrew94 Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2017
forgot to mention that the color tab in the Settings UI is very laggy. Gradient window and color pop up doesnt work most of the time.
joxdiaz Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2017
Nice job, love it, however i just noticed that it does not work if the music is been played on a digital output (toslink). Is there any workaround or solution?
undefinist Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
when you play through toslink is it set as default in your manage devices? if so, try to refresh visbubble.
