Perhaps you have to go into WMP (Windows Media Player) optiions then into the plug-ins tab and enable it.

1. select the Offscreen Buffer size 1024 x 768

2. untick the blur effect

3. navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Miha Software Analyzed Visualization

4. There you'll find the following color related values

  • ColorBackground - Represents the color of the background (will ony be used if the Blur effect is disabled)
  • ColorTop - Represents the color of the top left bar
  • ColorTopEnd - Represents the color of the top right bar
  • ColorBottom - Represents the color of the bottom left bar
  • ColorBottomEnd - Represents the color of the bottom right bar
  • ColorPeak - Represents the color of the peaks
Color values are in standard hex format. Groups of two digits from left to right represent the folowing 8-bit values: Alpha, Red, Green, Blue.

Default values (blue)

Color background = ff000000
ColorBottom = ff193366
ColorBottomEnd = ff334cb2
ColorPeak = ff667fe5
ColorTop = ff334cb2
ColorTopEnd = ff4c66e5
Resolution = 3

5. First I changed ColorPeak to 000000, that removes the peak delay completely.

6. Then I changed ColorTop, ColorTopEnd, ColorBottom, ColorBottomEnd to ffFF4500

The outcome can be seen on the picture below ...

The bars do respond nicely and immediate to the sound, without any delay.
One thing I'm not happy with is, that the very right hand side doesn't seem to show any movements.
I think that the very right hand side doesn't seem to show any movements because the music format doesn't have 12Khz to 16khz response. Some music songs ripped on mp3 192Kbps or better can show you 16Khz frecuency and you will see last right bars moving up.

Windos 7 x64

Hi, I have changed from WMP 12 to Foobar 2000 a while ago.
I still use both though, but cause of the great customization I prefer Foobar.
Some of my favourite skins are:

Mnlt2 Plus
HiFoo v1.7.5
Flex 0.5

Where are the visualizations

Using Windows 7 64 and Media player 12, it took me waaay too long to figure out how to get the visualization to execute. You can only launch visualizer from the Now Playing screen.

If you are on the screen that shows playlists in the middle and and the Play/Burn/Sync tabs in the upper right (attached) you have to use Ctrl + 3 to get to the Now Playing screen. Or, you right-click on the window space above the Search field, and choose "View>Show Menu" which will display File/View/Play/Tools/Help. From there use the View menu to get to Now Playing. From there it's easy, just right click and choose Visualizations. You can choose to show or hide the playlist as well.

Thanks to a Yahoo post I read on Google to get me started.
