RMS (DShow9)
RMS (Bass)

There are RMS (DShow9) and RMS (Bass) simple envelope followers. They return the current volume for the left and the right channel.


With all directshow pins (of type audio / midi / video) you can connect each output to only one input pin. Therefore it is not possible with the DShow9 system to play a file and analyse it at the same time. The BASS system doesn't have this restriction.

There are several nodes performing a Fast Fourier transform:

An FFT returns a spread of amplitudes of a linearly distributed scale of frequencies. But based on experiments on human hearing perception it is known that the scale of frequencies is approximately logarithmic at the high-frequency end, and nearly linear at the low-frequency end.

That means that human meatbags can very good distinguish between low frequencies but the high frequencies sounds almost all the same. Music producers of course make use of that fact, see Psychoacoustics.

That’s not all. Amplitudes should be scaled in a way, that higher frequencies have a bigger scaling factor. Despite the fact that low frequencies carry high energies (resulting in big values coming from FFT), humans perceive low frequencies dull. That is why mid and high frequencies have to be scaled up (nonlinearly).

The FFT Nodes have the Frequency Scaling exactly for that.

u7angel: @xxxlalala i meant matcap, look for that

~8h ago

xxxlalala: thanks @u7angel superphong is exactly what i was looking for. litsphere gave me no search results though :(

~10h ago

u7angel: i guess most pro vvvv users don't use emeshe for various reasons but more custom collection of shaders. see superphong or litsphere

xxxlalala: is emeshe the way to go for rendering with materials ? (asking because it says deprecated)

catweasel: Lovely, that did it! Just needed right click which wasn't coming through :)

catweasel: is the tablet plugin missing from recent builds? seems like all 35v(64bit, or is that the problem?)

velcrome: @superflysiNZ it is pretty cool, and works solid. but you need #m4l
