Featured Plugin.

Mesmerizing Trippy 3D Effects. This one uses DirectX8 and lots of different effects blending in and out. Each effect is synced to different frequencies making a truly unique and mesmerizing experience. I have literally spent hours just watching this and getting lost in the music and visuals.Works best with Trip-hop, GOA, dance, trance, etc.Updated version fixes many of the previous issues and adds ability to show custom messages.crashes on certain cards.

Rave - Featured Plugin.

Staff review

Very flavorful 3d visuals

This plug-in gets you well mesmerized for a good amount of time...especially if you have a fast machine with a good 3d card. Nice transitions and blending between visual patterns make for a smooth experience. Well worth checking out. New version with minor bug fixes as well as adds a custom message feature.


Ouch.. - Can someone please tell me if there's a fix for this without reinstall, and it is indeed my own stupidity that has brought me to this horrible disaster.First time using this, and I ran it on full screen, now I can't stop it. I press Esc to exit, it minimises for a second then comes straight back up. My musics stopped and it's still happening. I have to close WinAmp with CTRL+ALT+Del - March 23, 2009 by Sean Laverty

cool - rave is cool !!!!:) - October 29, 2007 by wiola may

Crashed - It looked cool. I hoped it would work. But... It didn't. CRASH. Error message? There was none. Winamp simply ceased to run. I have version 5.32 of Winamp. It runs normally on a P4 2.3 Ghz with NVidia Ge-Force Graphics. Windows XP. 768 Megs of RAM and another 256 Megs on the GPU. If there is another more stable version or you know what the problem is, Let me know! - January 2, 2007 by Matt S

BOO! Crippleware BOO! - I haven't seen the plug-in, because as soon as the crippleware "Buy Me!" screen appeared, I uninstalled it faster than you can say "WTF?". I can understand wanting to be compensated for your time, but to CHARGE for what's SUPPOSED TO BE FREE PLUG-IN'S for a free media player is in completely bad taste. Bad Karma, man, MASSIVE bad Karma. =( - December 6, 2006 by Shadow Systems

ZZZzzzzzzzzzz - This plugin is ok. It works. It doesn't crash on my radeon. But it is so uninspiring. As for registering to see the other "features" I doubt any could be bothered. This could bore the crap out of a constipated pensioner. - April 6, 2003 by Francis Guidera

snore - **Dave says** Talk to the hand!! yawn. but hay I did give it 3 stars way cause alot of work into it - not that you are able to see it as it's CRIPPLE WARE. - November 22, 2002 by David Reilly

TOPPER - have seen better but works great no install problems and no probs starting or exiting the program just a good job. ( would have got 4 stars but you have to register to unlock the dam thing.......) - July 1, 2002 by TOM TOPP

Hmmmm.... author is lame - There are a million 3d plug ins out there, and the only 2 different things about this one is: 1) To get the full features, u actually have to pay and register (lame!), 2) you always have the word rave all over the screen, damn posers. - June 20, 2002 by Togi Callister

dull - It's just a floor spinning around with flying particles around it. What's the big whoop about that? - April 6, 2002 by Rhiannon C.

If you need one plugin, make it rave - absolutely breathtaking, better than any other crap out there, streams from one mode to the other in perfect sync to the music. beautiful visuals, stimulating. christ i've been sat here half an hour listening to trance and it's just getting better and better. Tune recommendation - Ian Van Dahl - Will I (dee dee radio mix) :D - February 2, 2002 by Dami I

Cool stuff - I like it!! So bright and trancing. It makes it into my collection easily. - January 26, 2002 by Nicholas Bertke

Awesome!! ! - This plugin runs awesome on my 1Ghz AMD w/ G400max card (fullscreen)! You can sit here and watch it for hours listening to trance. It makes u wanna dance! - January 17, 2002 by takehisa ichinose

Very Nice Light Show, Butt... - Runs very well on my computer. I just have one complaint; I don't like how it can't go 5 seconds without saying the word 'Rave'. that's my 2? ☺ - December 30, 2001 by Christopher Richardson

New party accessory - The nextime I hold a rave party this is going on the big screen!!!!!!!!!!! - December 13, 2001 by Ken Anderson

Mando bem - fico muito irado esse skin seu, muito louco, hehe, brasileiros na ?rea. :O - September 19, 2001 by Mariano Vale

Great Plug-in - Anyone dissing this plug-in is either too dumb to correctly configure their OS or too poor to afford anything other than a DEFUNCT 3dfx VooDoo3 card... This plug-in is very HIGH - QUALITY... - September 14, 2001 by Lenic G Babiak

first look - u can only tell so much from the picture...i feel sorry for all those ppl who sit and just watch these sorta things. - August 31, 2001 by Daniel Gaffney

Author's web site + forums - Check out the new site and forums for this plugin at - August 27, 2001 by Chris Egerter

a plug-in with a sense of humor. - "crippleware" it is. after eventually bringing my PIII 933 to it's knees i discover that it's now corrupted open GL and turned a full harddrive of games into an unplayable, glitchy mess. but oh was it pretty the 2 or 3 minutes it worked before brutalizing my computer. a must-download to all system restore enthusiasts. - August 21, 2001 by Travis Bickle

Seems pretty COOL! - Hi, seems pretty cool to me, very nice visuals, got a GF2-GTS and a Celeron 950MHz, and it's trying to eat my pc alive, and slows down occassionally, does not like Rock at all but I smacked on some Prodigy and it's digging it! Can't see the Winamp player, have to move this out of the way to see that, but apart from that it's cool. installed a treat. - August 21, 2001 by josh waller

Does not appear - the plugin (as well as some others) just doesn't appear in my plugin-list... - August 20, 2001 by Lars Oeschey

YES! - You beauty. Finally a plug in that runs properly and smoothly in full screen 32bit 1024x768. Unlike others that dont seem to make the most of my GeForce3 but this does. Superb and thankyou. - August 18, 2001 by stuart bartlett

Superious - I loved it!!!! Its super. Its one of the best plugins I have ever seen!! - August 16, 2001 by SpaZeMan .

!!! - Hi dude - August 15, 2001 by Stephen Morris

Good But...... - Yeah its prety good and whit incredible changes on the images, the problem is why its needed to register it and pay for it this isn?t supouse to be a free products place? - August 14, 2001 by Fernando Blancarte

Good! - It?s a good "rave plug-in"! nothing more to say...... -download it! /Shadar - August 13, 2001 by Shadar Logoth

Great stuff - Well we dont like 8 bucks for a key, But it seems to run fine on my win98se system. I guess only a few of us really know how to build a computer!! - August 13, 2001 by jerry edwards

DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - holly shit man has anyone seen my eyes laying arround!!!!!! - August 11, 2001 by Craz 1000

INCREDIBLE - If youre into trance or hard house you NEED this plugin. Obviously you need a good 3d accelerator to get the full effect of this bad boy. Must download for all the party kids out there. - August 9, 2001 by Ian Newman

i think im gonna cry - It works in a small window, but when i want it in full screen, it says my video card type or something like that couldent be found. than that anoying message came up and said that it caused an illegal operation and has to be shut down. After you press "Close", it pops up again. It wont go away. - August 9, 2001 by Aaron Venezia

Hehe... - "but please, remain civilized" Uhm...diden't see that one :P But I forgot to say something :) Let's take that crappy OS Win98SE for ex. in Denmark it's about 80$...I would like to know how many lines of raw source code that im buying for 80$, compared to this 8$ plugin ? I mean what's the price for each line, in the plugin ? NOT the API for the 3D render, but just the god danm plugin ? - August 7, 2001 by Svin eHund

Worthy and interesting - LAck of variety prevented five stars but this a solid programming effort. It is very encouraging to see the author here answering questions. Tested system on a variety of configurations down to an AMD 700 MHz with Nvidia with only 16 Meg and found no performance problems. Optimum performance was achieved with a P3 1000 and a an ATI radeon with 32 Meg DDR. Although it looks great on a P4 1.7 with a G3 you dont need that level of hardware to get good performance for this plugin. - August 7, 2001 by paul edenfield

" Rave " - It's very good , I like the blending . Keep 'em coming I'mma Big fan - August 7, 2001 by nikki .......

Umm...installer - Need to change the file name to vis_rave.dll instead of just rave.dll...Also is very slow at loading and should automatically maxmize when plug-in is activated - August 7, 2001 by Michael Nohai

works really well......... - at crashing WINAMP. Boo!! - August 4, 2001 by Tamara Cochran

very nice - wow, this is nice, well done mate, it sucked all the power from my computer so that all it could do was this, but it was very nice anyways - August 4, 2001 by Luke Harbinson

never mind - As the number one 'staff' recomendation you expect it to at least work. I've a voodoo3 3000 & PIII 650 & 512Mb ram - but this plugin just crashes winamp. - August 4, 2001 by david parsons

nice, but ... - ... all in all, often it's too disturbing and you get a headache from watching it. full screen mode does not really work (flickering) and it's not directx's fault, because other examples do work. allowing the user to maximize your window would also been fine. ... geiss did it a lot better. also, you should check the caps of the card and tell the user, if something is not supported (like alpha blending on brent collins' computer. the "rave" text is disturbing, otherwise it's pretty nice. - August 3, 2001 by michael stern

Doesn't Work - This sucks! I don't know if it's incompatible with Win2k or if it's incompatible with glide, but all it does is crash winamp. - August 2, 2001 by Nikki Kitty

rave music rocks - this is a bad ass rave plug in lets see diffrent thing also - August 2, 2001 by james henderson

graphics device error - the plug-in knows my voodoo banshee, i?ve got enough ram, a fast pc... and i always get the same error msg! - July 31, 2001 by Xhantus 404

damn - i was looking forward to this plugin, but got the famous "createdevice failed" message at loadup. - July 30, 2001 by DRaKe ďż˝

Hmm... - It may just be my shitty computer, but are you supposed to be able to see the boxes that the stars were drawn in? Or is it supposed to look 3-D? Cause it just shows up as a flat box with a star drawn in it. Otherwise, a great vis plugin. - July 30, 2001 by Brent Collins

Pretty Good - I like it but not as "trancy" as geiss, or old skool chathuga with the right pictures. - July 29, 2001 by Jeremy allen

it's tight - it's tight - July 26, 2001 by getoe life

Oh dear - For some reason my display is messed up and my icons have all gone to shit! - July 24, 2001 by Anna Lindsay

create device failed - I own a geforce 3 and this is all that i get to see,a little error window saying create device failed,and it crashes winamp.... - July 20, 2001 by Tai Chow Sing

This plugin is PHAT - This thing runs WILD on a GeForce3 card! The visualization reacts to the music in so many ways. Very effective indeed! - July 20, 2001 by Barry Egerter

Le meraviglie del3D MaxxxxxxMO - Merita un grande elogio sia per gli effetti dei colori per le composizioni perfette ed i sincronismi dei movimenti delle immaggini.Grazie da uno che ama i plugins.Dico anche, chi ascolta la peggior musica guardando questi effetti, sentir? vibrare dentro l'animo i desideri pi? belli della vita:Bravo BRAVO - July 19, 2001 by walter dalpadullo
