Audio visualization with hype?

Hi there is there anyone ever tried to visualize a soundfile?
I checked out a lot of java pages but all of them using CSS. So any idea how to do this with hype? Any idea welcome:-)


Hi Achim!

Here is a thread that discusses some audio visualization concepts from display in the Hype interface itself to having a waveform play in the Preview~browser. None of the posts show an “equalizer” type of display as in your example - but You might get some ideas here…

Well there you have it – it does what you want, so why not use that? I’m confused what you are hoping to do with Hype. If you’d like to visualize sound within your Hype document, you have the option to embed something that like within an HTML Widget. Hype doesn’t block you at all from using additional libraries and techniques built for the web. We encourage it!
