Artist's Note

MilkDrop is a sound reactive visualisation plug-in for the world renowned media player Winamp. It was created by Ryan Geiss who produced the ground breaking plug-in ‘Geiss’ many years ago which has been downloaded many millions of times.

MilkDrop is his latest ground breaking plug-in.

It uses 3D graphics hardware, combined with iterative image-based rendering techniques, to create a visual journey through sound.

It creates detailed graphical images seamlessly blending 3D effects into one another this is coupled with intelligent beat detection. Unlike many other visualisation plug-in you may have seen what really sets MilkDrop apart that it make the sound come alive.

It is fully configurable and you can create all your own separate presets and loads of VJ support and messaging display options.

Sadly screenshots and video clip don't really do it justice - I know it sounds clichéd but it really has to be “seen to be believed.”

You can tailor your own presets to make the visualtion do what you want.

Once installed download all the updates and presets from
