    This is an example of the Winamp AlienFX plugin.

    The song is Flying Saucer by Specimen A.

    I managed to get the lights to react to all sound coming from the speakers. I don't have a video because of YT copyright (I miss the old YT).

    Even though I'm the only one posting in this thread... I noticed that the lights are more responsive (they flash more rather than stay solid) when you have the plugin's beat detection open. I don't know why it does, but I like having it open since it does that.

    This is the plugin for Winamp. I was just explaining how you can use it for all sound output from your computer.

    this is for the winamp :D and its way better than the WMP plugin you can select lighting for each zone you should give it a try
    i took few weeks to get it to work and after some help from the Maelstrom here i succeeded =) and now my beast dances to every BEAT :D

    Your very welcome Dnvr. Also, I sort of forgot to mention this but if you go to File and select Play URL and type in "linein://" the plugin will respond to your mic (if you have one). And then if you right click the speaker in the notificaion area and hit recording options you can right click on "stereo mix" and enable it (do the same to disable your mic). Then the plugin is reacting to other sources of sound from your computer (YouTube, any games you have or sound editing software, etc.). If you don't see stereo mix then right click anywere in the box and hit "show disabled devices" to see it.

    To disable the linein just hit stop or start playing a song or video in Winamp.

    Edit: Also, the beat detection seems to react to linein differently then stuff played on Winamp so you may want to retune the settings. That's a pain to do if you switch between both linein and Winamp but hey, free disco party is a free disco party.

    In Winamp go to File at the top and select Play URL.

    You can get it here.

    http://3d.benjamin-thaut.de/?p=14

    This plugin was meant for the older versions of AWs so if your model isn't listed or it doesn't work then just tell me and I'll see if I can get it working.

    Windows Media Player and itunes have similar plugins built in I think (I'm not sure about iTunes but I know WMP does). It shouldn't screw up your lights but if your done listening to music and your LEDs don't revert back to your default then just hit right click on the AlienFX head in the notification area and hit "Go Dark" and then "Go Light" after that.

    If you have an M14x then the link won't work with out some modding :)
    There is only one model of M14x so my mod will be the same as your mod and that makes it easier.
