FlashAmp is the audio visualization utility for Macromedia Flash™.

All three editions of FlashAmp have been completely rebuilt from the ground up with new features and functions to make the production of stunning audio visualizations in Flash even easier.

FlashAmp is a stand-alone application that produces arrays of audio data specifically for use with Macromedia Flash™. With some simple Actionscript you can use FlashAmp data to synchronize animations (or anything else) with sound.
And with FlashAmp you can achieve lip sync for animated characters in Flash in seconds!

FlashAmp creates audio amplitude, spectrum and cue point data. So you can...

• accurately synchronize animations to sound, even if it's streaming
• animate sound waveforms
• animate VU meters
• use audio cue points in Flash
• create graphical eq type displays (with FlashAmp Pro)
• create intense frequency-based music visualizations (with FlashAmp Pro)
The applications are limited only by your imagination.
Here are some key features of "FlashAmp":
A completely revised user interface that concentrates all the major settings in a single window so you can easily see all settings and controls
A new Preview window including an animated 'eq' display for spectrum data and waveform displays for amplitude data (FlashAmp Pro only)
Simultaneous processing of amplitude and spectrum data (FlashAmp Pro only)
Batch processing now handles sub-folders of sound files (FlashAmp Standard and Pro only)
Variable control of the amplitude Smoothing setting
Optionally set custom spectrum bandwidths (FlashAmp Pro only)
Settings for the overall frequency range used in spectrum analysis (FlashAmp Pro only)
Support for 48kHz sample rate sounds
Support for MP3 files using Variable Bit Rate (VBR) and Joint-Stereo encoding.
