A music visualizer is a great tool to experiment with and can hypnotize you for hours while you're playing music.

This music visualization software creates a synesthesia-like experience where visual graphics react in real-time to a chosen piece of audio.

We're excited to introduce a powerful music visualizer system built-in to the DJ.Studio app! (Our unique DAW for DJs.)

With DJ.Studio, you can quickly create visualized DJ mixes and mixtapes - thanks to the timeline editor and AI-powered automix.

Once you've finished creating your mix, you can now easily add a reactive music visualizer to your exported videos.

In this article, I'll explain all the features of DJ.Studio's free music visualizer and show you how you can use it to easily create cool graphics to accompany your mixes.

DJ.Studio's Music Visualization Features#

DJ.Studio Video Creator

DJ.Studio is more than just a DJ app - it's a full workstation for creating mixes - with funky visual effects to accompany the sound. 

In collaboration with Geiss, MilkDrop, and Butter Churn, DJ.Studio offers a fully reactive audio visualizer system.

This lets you easily create immersive and rhythmic visuals that respond to the music of your mixes.

This system has a lot of options, allowing for maximum flexibility.

Here are some of the key features of DJ.Studio's video editor and free audio visualizer.

  • There are three main components to generated videos - the background, track information, and a spectrum analyzer. These can all be designed independently, and combined in a range of ways.

  • The background can use an abstract animation, a still background image, a solid color, or the current track's album artwork.

  • There are 100 animations to choose from, which can be randomized at set intervals, or you can manually choose the animation for each track. You can also change the animation intensity.

  • The track information can be displayed (Track Name, Artist Name, Album Artwork) in three different sizes and layout types: Center, Bottom 1/4, or Bottom 1/6.

  • There are two spectrum analyzer styles to choose from - with controls for intensity and blur.

  • You can toggle on/off some additional particle effects.

  • Easily export the final video as a download - and/or directly upload it as a YouTube video.

  • We are also working on a version of the video editor which can be used on mobile devices.

The audio visualizer is highly flexible and fun to use!

What is DJ.Studio?#


Now you know about the power of DJ.Studio's audio visualizer, it's worth getting some background context on the purpose of the software.

DJ.Studio is a new piece of software for creating DJ mixes at high speed, while still maximizing quality.

It uses a unique approach to mix creation, that takes inspiration from traditional audio and music production software and moves away from the stale paradigm of traditional DJ software.

Other DJ software uses the same old two decks and a mixer type of interface, which hasn't changed much since the 70s...

We created a tool that assists DJs at every stage of the mix creation process and gives them the most efficient interface and workflow.

DJ.Studio has a bunch of unique features that change the DJ mixing game:

  • Discovery - find new music from within the app itself - which connects to YouTube Music, Spotify, Soundcloud, and other sources.

  • Track Wishlist - When browsing songs, you can add them to your wishlist. DJ.Studio then scans a range of digital music platforms to provide you with links to buy your newly discovered beats.

  • Smart Library Manager - Organize your music however you need to. Import any popular audio formats. 

  • Key and Tempo Analysis - DJ.Studio automatically and accurately learns the BPM and key of every imported track -helping you to make better choices.

  • Automix - An AI-assisted automix feature scans through every potential sequence for your chosen setlist, and finds the optimal order based on BPM or key. This gives you the sleek, professional sound of harmonic mixing, without the extra effort.

  • Transition Editor - The timeline-style transition editor lets you create seamless blends between tracks. You can automate all of the transition parameters at the same time, letting you create transitions with a new level of expression not possible on hardware or other software.

  • Fast Recording - DJ.Studio can record and render your mix at up to 5x speed. This means an hour-long mix would only take around 12 minutes to export, and has super high audio quality. 

  • Professional Exporting - You can export your finished mixes to a range of locations from within DJ.Studio - including YouTube, or even Ableton Live as a multi-track set.

  • Audio Visualization - As explained in this article!

DJ.Studio is a cross-platform program that can run directly in the browser. This means you don't have to download anything.

It's designed to be easy and intuitive enough for new DJs (or even never-DJs) to be able to create high-quality mixes. At the same time, it also has deep and complex enough tools to be useful for professionals at the top of the industry.
