Design A Cloud

SoundSpectrums cloud visualizer can set the mood

By Ko Maruyama

SoftSkies is a music visualizer created by SoundSpectrum.  If you're an iTunes user, you may be familiar with the visualizer that comes packed in with your Mac software.  These are those same guys, and they've just come up with a new way to watch your music.  These cloudscapes can fit your chill music library.

Clouds are always relaxing.  Pair the visual with some of your favorite chill out music, and your afternoon downtime just got a lot more relaxing.



I have to admit that it's been years since I've paid for a screen saver, but at only $20 for the gold version, and $30 for the platinum version (which supports the screensaver and multiple players), it's something that you might "just have on".




You can design your own clouds, add your own pictures, post album art, and more.

Check it out for yourself.  SoundSpectrum has been used for many more visualizations than simple desktop presentations, but you might just want to check out the free demo.  Fire up Moon Patrol by Air and relax.
