    Oh, so it's the pulse that sets apart "reacting to music" and not :D

    Yup, also got it with MD 2.1 from post #80 and upmix option turned on.

    This is quite a toughie, as my setting is upmix for my audigy 7.1 system any way, so I dropped back to stereo, just listened to "hammer to fall" and viz was definitely working to guitar rift in song, so think this is a bit of a red herring.

    BTW can someone kick the dog for me as its had me up since 3.30am yawn.

    Now I've got some neighbours involved, and the conclusion seems to be definitely working with 5.1 only, amazing what you see when your tired ;(

    So the answer is use milkdrop2.1 + upmix stereo to 5.1, now I wonder why that is working :confused:

    with "Upmix to 5.1" i am using a Bass Mixer Channel, whereas without upmixing a non-mixer audio channel is used.
    That might be the difference.

    will have a look at the code in the evening.

    Difficult to tell exactly what we are seeing though it does seem better with that option on - thanks for the tip Baron of L/S
    Hmm...
    Hopefully hwahrmann will see somethnig in the code and it'll get fixed soon :)

    @PD are you sure it's the lack of sleep causing you to see things?? :p

    Re: AW: Visualisations in 1.2Beta

    I've also noticed the slowdown when MediaPortal isn't the currently selected window. But, even when it is, it seems that the performance of Milkdrop 2 (v2.24, actually) in MediaPortal (v1.2.2) just doesn't match the performance of it in Winamp; there's a certain sense of speed and fluidity that's just lacking.

    It's hard for me to quantify what's going on here, as I haven't been able to pull up the FPS display in Milkdrop 2, since the Milkdrop 2 shortcut keys seem to be disabled under MediaPortal. Under Winamp though, the FPS rate varies widely from 25 or so to 50 and beyond at times. It's running on a pretty powerful machine, so I doubt it's CPU- or graphics-bound, either. As a side note, how do I activate Milkdrop 2's FPS display and song info on track change in MediaPortal?

    When I set up Milkdrop 2 in MediaPortal, I copied it straight over from Winamp, preferences and all, so the configuration should be identical. Is MediaPortal somehow throttling it? I'm a bit perplexed by the "Target FPS" option in MediaPortal Configuration -> Music -> Visualizations and its maximum setting of 25. I've tried setting the value to 50 in MediaPortal.xml, unsurprisingly to no effect. What does this do?

    Thanks in advance.
