please add a comment if you like this longer format posts or if you have suggestions for future posts.

sound rainbow

the song I used for the animation is called "The Long Dawn - Part II" and can be found on soundcloud

To analyze the audio material you need a "Sound Bake" and a "Evaluate Sound" node. I also created a copy of the default cube for each bar I wanted in my animation using an "Object Instancer". The strenghts list and the object list are fed to a loop.
