Kauna is a music visualizer. Kauna renders any sound reproduction in system. It can also capture audio from a microphone.
There are different dynamic and beautiful visualizations available:
  • Wave - frequencies as fine lines;
  • Confetti - colored discs, changing its size;
  • Bars - rainbow spectrum analyzer;
  • Burning clouds - bright visualization simulates illuminated clouds;
  • Plasma - old school effect with smooth transition of colors;
  • Sound level meter - virtual device for the measurement of volume (DB);
  • Triangular - light ring with triangles in the background;

Settings - sound level sensivity, automatic change of visualizations on a timer, select the sound card.
It supports phone and tablet/desktop with OS version 8.1+

Good idea, x-2!
I've rated your app 5 stars on US market. BTW, have you announced this app on 4pda.ru forums? I believe you'll find a lot of fans of your app on that site ;)

I do have a couple feature requests to you:
  • instead of appbar button & separate page to choose visualization, use a swipe gesture;
  • please add standard coloring scheme for the spectrum analyzer (i.e. "Bars" visualization); I mean, colors or color gradient should be changed not by bars (i.e. frequency values produced by FFT) but by each bar size. Check my "Midi Player" app to see exactly what I mean.

Hey this looks pretty cool. And way better than the other music visualizers I've seen in the store. Does it support continuum?

No, it doesn't. It's 8.1 app. I'll try to port it to UWP in one of future updates.

I have now successfully used your app in continuum. Great app! It is also very good to have running in a big screen while you listen to music as a background in a room with several people.

Nice work with this app. But I have some trouble with it. It´s not working when I chose system as a source of sound. Any advise? :)

The app uses WASAPI to get sound. It could be problem with some sound cards if your media player uses directsound or asio for example. You can try to change player output to WASAPI Shared. Or you can enable 'stereo mix' in the system and use microphone as source in the app. Unfortunately I failed to fix this problem programmatically.
