Flixel Power Tools FlxFlectrum

Back to the Flixel Power Tools

FlxFlectrum works in conjunction with FlxFlod which itself provides the ability to replay soundtracker music in Flixel. FlxFlectrum allows you to visually display that music via a colourful vu-meter / spectrum analyser style display.

You can control pretty much everything – from the direction the meters go (up, down, left, right), the number of columns, the width of each column, custom spacing between columns and rows, row height, a background beat effect and even provide your own graphic to use for the meter instead. It’s pretty versatile! My thanks to Christian Corti for providing the base code, I simply Flixel’d it up a lot :)

    Just a quick question: does this only work with mod files or also with other format like mp3?

    It works by looking at the sound being played through the Sound Data object, so it isn’t limited to mods, but it won’t work with a normal “Sound” object either. But anything going through a sound data event style loop will work.

    I’ve looked through all the files and tried to modify them to work with mp3; but to no avail. I understand that the flectrum reads the SoundEx class; however I have no idea how to turn an mp3 into this format.
