Make an audio visualizer in Blender

LocoMatt composed this track and created an unusual audio visualization along with it in Blender. He shows how he achieved the effect, and shares the required script.

My new song and new audio visualizer done in Blender

Here's a tutorial showing how LocoMatt set up this scene - the Python script is available for download here.

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

  1. If I get this correctly, which might not be the case, I have to copy the script in the text editor and then run it. But when I do that, it does not seem to work, I don't get those cubes as shown in the video, only an empty and an error message "Python script fail, look in the console for now..." Anyone knows why it's not working?

      Check out this few lines of script

      # left file chanel ("C:Foldermusic.flac" or "/media/music.ogg")
      file_l = "/media/music.ogg"
      # right file chanel
      file_r = "/media/music.ogg"
      Maybe you didn't changed location of sound. You should change the patch where is file that you want visualize.

      • Thank you, I have changed these lines but it's still not working. Maybe the problem is on my hand, python version or something, I'm gonna check.

    Nice mix and visualization! I have music I don't feel like making video for, but this would work great with some tweaking.
