{Click Image to animate}

It is fully functional spacial display of left and right audio
Bass frequency is at the bottom | Spaced upward with the highest frequency at the top
Sound Level determines the size of the circles
Positioned left/right based on that frequencies level in each channel
Note: You must be listening to stereo sound to see any relative horizontal positioning :oops:
Several color schemes included and RGB editor (similar to the Reflections skin)

Multiple Shape Visualizers are included
To add a new one, just copy any of the current folders, paste it, and give it a new name. Refresh Rainmeter... then open that 'spacial.ini' and start changing the look!

I am sure I will be tweaking things over the next few weeks ;-) , but thought you might enjoy something a bit different to play with over the holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Tweaks: More Shapes, Expanded Setting Skin, More Preset Colors, ...

NOTE: As of V 1.2019.01.09 this package requires Rainmeter V 4.3 or higher due to use of Container Meters
