Staff review

Tasty treats for your eyes....

Some very nice colorful visuals that will help you forget how long you are staring at your monitor. Load in your favorite introspective music and let your eyes feast. You may want to configure it so that the logo doesn't keep interrupting your optical stupor. Some very original flow and visual tweakiness to this plug-in...essential goodies. -dg

Sweet. - Awesome visualization!!! - October 6, 2007 by Kelli Bryant

best plug I\'ve ever had to winamp - why can I only rate it 5? I'd give it 6 - October 1, 2007 by Peter Velschow-Rasmussen

Tops - This is by far my most favorite visualizer. I haven't seen any other visualization that is as responsive to the music. - January 19, 2007 by Fred Willson

Oldie but a Goodie - This has been my favorite visualization for Winamp since it first came out. Not as fancy as some, but works for me. Sadly it hasn't been updated in a long while. Two minor things. With todays CPU's and Graphics Cards, some more optimization would be nice to get better performance and at higher resolutions. Also has a slight issue with dual screen setups. Might want to minimize all of your windows before activating it. As a wish, it would be great if both screens could be used and not just one. It tends to fly at 800x600 on a single screen though and that's how I first started using it. Must have played "Insomniac" by Faithless a dozen times through it. Try It! - February 1, 2006 by Signal 64

Wow - I was amazed by this work. It is great stuff to look at. Actually makes me feel right there moving all around like a crazy person.... Uh yeah maybe the wrong words used there. But yeah this is great. A must have. ^_^ - January 13, 2006 by Christine Jones

Brrrrrrravooooooooo!!!!!! - Still it is THE BEST arround!!!!29.10.2005 - October 29, 2005 by Nenad Stanojevic

fill your eyes with beauty - I have seen a lot of vis. but this one RULES.No wonder that Soren made only this one.It set the standard. Again and again it is my only choice when I start Winamp.So clear, so colorfull, so ... The best EVER I have seen. B R A V O ! ! ! ! - July 5, 2005 by Nenad Stanojevic

what can I say..... - I saw GOD!!!! Thanks Soren!!!!! :-D - January 13, 2005 by Eric Wislon

Wonder!!! - Wonderfffffffful!!!Masterpiece!Delighted!Amazed!I never rated anything but this one I just can:t miss.Jebo si mu kevu. Nenad Nis Serbia - December 29, 2004 by Nenad Stanojevic

Superb - Exellent work Soren! Not much else to say. Damn impressive stuff it keeps providing.. Hope we get to bumb into each other soon. Call me if you still got my number. - December 17, 2004 by Jonas Molgaard

geiss, i think we have a problem - Man! Geiss used to be my favorite, but Acidspunk is really expressing it's name. Ii didn't know visuals could get any better until now, better than any acid trip I've had. I can't wait until the XMMS version comes out. - December 12, 2004 by fred kissel

Acidspunk - Best one yet! - November 14, 2004 by Andrea Basche

Sorry, milkdrop set the new standard - Yea check out milkdrop for winamp2 - September 19, 2004 by j e

I dont feel so well. - Its amazing how a little good code can make a plugin so fluid and smooth, what a masterpeice ;) - September 6, 2004 by Dave Williams

WOW - I think I wet my pants. - June 20, 2004 by Bidit Mazumder

The best damn visual EVER! - I will now call Soren Holstebroe Mister for the best visualization plug-in EVER!!! This plug-in is definitely PRIME TIME. Absolutely gorgeous in every respect. It\'s Great. No Greater than Great. It\'s a must have plug-in. Bet this will be seen at quite a few places. Very slick. Hats off to Soren!!! - June 2, 2004 by Thomas Cox

1st. Place, Blue Ribbon! - In a few words.....CREATIVE, Fun, Never Boring, Customizable, the only one i use sinsce i find all the others to be boring, boring, boring. GOOD JOB, this is the best i have ever seen in 10 years. - January 30, 2004 by Chen Levy

very good - one of the best - good thing bout this vis. is that it is very colourful - whereas something like geiss tends to be one colour( like the whole thing is green then red then blue, etc) - but with this you get the whole spectrum so its much nicer to look at. -- definately worth the download -- - December 8, 2003 by Rue Davies

WOW - Acidspunk is clearly the best visualization out there. Its beautiful colors, seamless rendering, and multitude of effects are peerless in quality. Acidspunk looks great on any system, but it's absolutely gorgeous on my Pentium4 HT 2.8GHz, ATI Radeon 9800! The only problem is that it doesn't respond to the music, making it just a really cool screen saver. That's ok. It's my favorite anyway. - November 19, 2003 by Jonathan Howard

Numero Uno - The best visualisation I ever seen, and believe me I saw lots of them! - October 12, 2003 by Sean Paul

Worth your time! - This is definitely worth downloading, one of the best I have seen! It has a full set of customizing options, including resolution for those with less powerful machines. Play around with the options a bit and it really does make a BIG difference, not just a little worthless change. With all the options and the ability to run this on weaker systems, this is one great AV plugin! The only thing that comes against it is the fact that it isn't synched to your tunes, but once you see it and play with the options, you'll forget about that... this thing will kill time like you wouldn't believe, you'll play with it, and suddenly realize an hour has gone by, heheh! Definitely one of the best, get it NOW! - August 7, 2003 by C Uh Yeah

how 2 disable text effect? - wow.... no cpu will survive!!!!!!!! it's full of colors and "random" but TEXT(belive it) effect crashes (tested in a P!!!@450Mhz,pcChips m748mr and a AMD Athlon XP 1700+, soyo SK7VTA-Pro, 3dfx Voodoo 4-4500!) - July 18, 2003 by seth kaos

LOVE IT! - This is by far the BEST plug-in. Nothing else even comes close. Awesome work!! - July 18, 2003 by ellen g

Acidspunk - coooooooool this is it !!!!!!!!!!!!! - July 1, 2003 by benny waldayes

AMAZING! - I have downloaded many plug-ins and visualations, though this one is the best of them. You can stare at your monitor for hours. - April 24, 2003 by Snir Hassidim

THANK YOU !!!! - Absolutely awsome! Thank you so much! - February 28, 2003 by Just Smee

Thanks Soren! - I enjoy to list music watching this plug'in going on, and I thinkcs it's really happy - February 21, 2003 by Toxic_Corporate srl

the colors... - It will eat your cpu if you dont have a fast machine, but sure its trippy :) - February 21, 2003 by Rafael Blanes

best i've seen and i've seen a lot - This is so bright, so smooth. The graphics are so complex and pretty. It complements any music. - January 10, 2003 by Randy Bapst

I like it! - it's nice , but is very slow! - January 3, 2003 by Jahangir Nasr

really cool - guys i'll keep it short and sweet, this is one worth getting i didn't want to quit watching it - January 2, 2003 by Marvin Ray

Don Do It - This plug in has a funny habit of crashing your hard drive not a result that I found amusing or fun, although I like what I saw it was what I could not see after using it the worried me, so if a computer that won't work is what you are after then download but don't going crying when all you can see is a blank screen. - December 6, 2002 by mark beckwith

AWESOME - Runs amazingly smooth on slow computers. Options are easy to learn how to use. I've used it for a while and never seen the same thing twice. Great feature is if u really like what u see u can hit f9 and it saves the screen shot. Awesome for backgrounds. BEST VISUAL EVER!! (ive downloaded too many crappy ones) - November 13, 2002 by R Burke

Nice... - Nice... Very nice, No no no... It's great! =) - November 8, 2002 by Douglas Bostrym

David Grogan - Ignore this kiddies, but man this is perfect for drug use. slap on some good house music, roll a splif and smoke it, then sit down and look at this... hours will pass and you'll still find yourself looking at it. well Soren keep them coming. - August 16, 2002 by David Grogan

Simply the best - Much as I like G-Force I find Acidspunk is the best vis available. It never crashes for me, either at work (P3 800, i815 graphics, 192 MB RAM) or at home (P2 400, ATI Rage Fury 128, 512 MB RAM). Shame about the name! - August 14, 2002 by Andrew Scaife

well... - it just crashed my computer - one fighter down... - August 14, 2002 by andreas finken

VERY GOOD - Very good in motion mode with drum and bass, cosmic!!! - August 5, 2002 by Quantum Physics

UNREAL! - Of all the plug-ins Ive gotten for winamp, I always go back to this one. It seriously blows my mind! If you havent downloaded this yet, you HAVE to. Its WAY too good to pass up. - August 3, 2002 by Dana LaPorte

Mmm acidic spunk - I LOVE THIS, YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THIS. IT HAS NEVER CRASHED ONCE ON MY COMPUTER. That may be because of my tricked-out setup ( AMD XP 2100+ 2.1 ghz, 768 MB DDR RAM, GF4 Ti 4600, 19" monitor) if you've got a system like mine, you better download this NOW, i can run this shit at 1600 X 1200 X 32 with no problems. THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. And even if you have a lesser system, it should still work very well. - August 2, 2002 by Tom Bourguet

The thing rocks!!!! - You better download this stuff!!!! Its colorful and beautiful. - July 25, 2002 by Michael Y.

Must have! - The best - no more to say :o) - July 10, 2002 by Roman Schmidt

Best. Visualisation. Ever. - 'Nuff said :o) - July 4, 2002 by Luke Johnston


This Thing Rocks! - I gotta admit, I just recently starting plug-ins to my Winamp repetoire..this one is really good..nothing like letting the tunes play and the screen display some freaked out graphics..well done - July 2, 2002 by David Silver

as if spunk were endless. - AcidSpunk is a smoothly flowing colour-intense matrix of evo-tangential beauty. I think it superceeds Geiss as my viz of choice, it is a 'gaggle of Geiss' Brain-melting with radiohead::life in a glass house. Check it out or you are missing out. - June 27, 2002 by Earl Camembert

WOW - That Is the best i have ever seen it never stops barely repeats, its fuckin great - June 23, 2002 by Ryan Perullo

Mmmm Toast - Use a highend pc,Mine is an amd XP1700 geforce3 ti200 128ddr ram 640mb ram.It runs at a very high frame rate my pc has never crashed... Would you like some toast? - June 16, 2002 by Talkie Toaster

Curtis - The rest of the review's are right on time. It's a great piece of eye candy, but for some reason, every time I hit esc to stop it, my computer restart's!? I've done it 3x now and the same thing happen's. Oh well, it's still a killer plug. - June 1, 2002 by Curtis Haigler

burning - just great, dont wory - May 25, 2002 by marko boj

NOB OUT! - The best screen candy yet,Cybertastic!!! - May 16, 2002 by Paul Wilson

=) - Im my opinion best visualaztion there is.... - May 10, 2002 by Jay Singh

Get Upgraded - You got a good pc with good Graphics support, then go for it. This the bestplugin i ever saw. You will luv it, trust me, YOU WILL! *ThiRdeYebLinD* - May 6, 2002 by Satyen Poojary

AWESOME! - I've searched for the best visualization on winamp, and I have to say, Acidspunk is one of the best! The graphics rock, the visualization changes and the colors warp your mind. I registered just to say that Acidspunk roks! - May 4, 2002 by Jan Michael

acidspunk II - Hands down... Best visualization plug in yet! Nuff said. Just download it. You won't be disappointed. - May 3, 2002 by Ben Roberts

No beats - This is a awsome plugin.... but i dont see any beat changes! To make a plugin you must, and i mean MUST, have beat change on something in your plugin... - May 1, 2002 by S D

BEST ! - The One And Only ! - May 1, 2002 by Johan F

FLASHBACKS! - I'm 53, a veteran of the 60's & 70's, and a survivor of some of the most potent acid ever passed around. Acidspunk is the ONLY visual that has made me recollect some of the "mind visuals" I was able to create. It's a cool feeling... Geiss and G-Force are for pussies, next to Acidspunk! - April 28, 2002 by CAT LARSON

Mind meld - When listening to Psychedelic Trance, and playing this plug in, you can mind meld with computer. Incredible "effects", best one i ever saw till now... - April 25, 2002 by Uros Vermezovic

Dude this rocks!!! - man i love it. i like acidspunk2 also i got them both keep up the good work man u rock - April 16, 2002 by Brian Vaughn

CATS - How are you gentlemen!! All your base are belong to us. You are on the way to destruction. what else do i need to say? it IS the best visual! and nothing will change this! =) - April 13, 2002 by Killa B

Yay! - I allways watch Acidspunk when listening with WinAmp! Acidspunk makes you think. How can a feeble human do something that complicated and beautiful? - April 12, 2002 by Kapu Nalle

really coool... - Its fantastic if you have a good resolution and good monitor 17" got it....try it by changing the song name and configure it to display your name or presentation at party.... - April 11, 2002 by uday kiran

Too cool !!!! - This is THE one to'll stare at it for hours and never see the same thing twice...I got Acidspunk II...but they took it off...Bummer!! You will want a good memory module to run it well. - March 29, 2002 by Marty Simons

best thing since before sliced bread - acidspunk is the best plugin that is avialable to download. the only problem is that it will often crash. if you could just tweak that one problem, then acidspunk will be playing 24/7. - March 29, 2002 by martin rosenberg

Acidspunk the coool thing! - This thing is really cooool! Everyone should download this awesome plug-ins. - March 19, 2002 by maksudur rahman

Exit crash 8K7A/Nvidia-AGP Aperature - Love the plug in enough to tweak Win2K/AMD761/Nvidia combo to get it to work. Sytem would frequently crash on exiting Acidspunk, experimented w/ drivers, bios settings. Settled on Det 22.50 and setting AGP aperature to 64 from the default 128 megs on Epox 8K7A. My Asus AZM266 never crashed on Acidspunk exit and noticed aperature default is at 64 megs. - March 16, 2002 by T Pike

KILL BILL GATES! - I can't give it five stars. The graphics are stellar, makes you feel stoned. Hallucination city, even if you aren't stoned. One problem. The blasted thing won't quit crashing. Right when I'm in the middle of the trip, it crashes. Otherwise, cool city! it's either the plugin or my stupid machine. Then again, no one said Microsnot is perfect. KILL BILL GATES! - March 4, 2002 by Audrey Myers

ACIDSPUNK IS TITS! - I'm new to winamp, and plug ins...but this is the most amazing visuals I have ever seen. Smooth, colorful, and goes fantastic to my trance and house music! I've tried othe visual plug ins, and this is the one they have to beat! Haven't found one yet! Wish I still did my hallucinogens, this is what I always wanted!!! Get it, now!!!!!!!! You won't be sorry!!! - March 2, 2002 by scott wimpari

Fabulous - I'm new to the joys of winamp and have been downloading a lot of skins and plugs ot play with. This one is a near religeous experience especially with some really spaced out music like Steve Hillage. Fabulous! I can't credit the fact that it's free! I've got it running on four monitors through four pcs with the same sound feed and the results are amazing! - February 21, 2002 by Douglas Lang

Eye Candy - It's sooo pretty! I love the swirly colors. I do wish there was a small window mode, so I could stare at it while doing other things. :) - February 20, 2002 by Lizabeth O

Kick ass - This plugin is really neat... You can stare at it for quite some time and you won't get tired of it... And it looks particularly cooler when you're stoned... TWO THUMBS UP! - February 18, 2002 by Mr. Furel J.

It's ok. - In my mind it's not bad, but it's not much better than Giess. Actually, it's much the same.. even in performance. But in my opinion the there is less of a shading or transition between things. Sorta pixelised. - February 14, 2002 by Michael Smith

I spilled my Spunk....... - This is the number one vis I have ever seen and i have downloaded a lot of Vis's for Winamp. this one is A MUST HAVE!!!!!! simple the BEST. Keep up the Updates on this Baby. - February 14, 2002 by Daron Brusewitz

Spunky! - Ouch. I made the mistake of combining this plug-in with Black Sabbath's "Mr. Crowley". I am now permanently disturbed. - February 8, 2002 by Anguipes Seraph

Outstanding - I love visuals with lots of color mixed with motion. Runs great on my 1.3 ghz machine. It could use a small window mode so I can have it on while on the net, like SPACE. In spite of that, you got to have this one. - February 5, 2002 by Fred Willson

very good - it's excellent, the only bad thing is that it needs a lot of power - February 3, 2002 by Ra�l Salitrero

Made my nose run - This is ggggreat......I'm still cleaning up ! - February 1, 2002 by Grimm Grimmore


Got it but can't use it - Great plug-in, looks brill, but it keeps shutting down Winamp for some reason. - January 24, 2002 by steve bryant

name says it all - great plugin wish there was a screen saver version - January 17, 2002 by Jen Salmans

BESTE EVER - THIS IS A MUST HAVE PLUG-In --------------------------- best full screen I have seen - January 12, 2002 by Thomas Gjennestad

Best one ever made!! - Best one ever made. Thrill for hours. Where did you go? You ought to make more of this!! One million downloads.... - January 11, 2002 by P. van Strien

I'll Get Fired - Let them bitch about anything, I am busy spending 7 hours a day watching "THE BEST PLUGIN" they could of ever hoped to have. NOTHING CAN TOP this. Hope your in a well paid job. With this I am watching the screen all the time. - January 8, 2002 by Chris Robertson


One Million! - Yes Mr. Holstebroe, you got there. One million downloads is not for anyone. But you deserve it. You created the most fantastic plugin in the Winamp's world. Hope you have a very nice christmas and a very happy new year. Thank you for the magic moments you give us with your revolutionary Acidspunk. But we still want more. When? Congratulations. - December 23, 2001 by joaquim jardim

DO NOT pick on Acidspunk. - "Total immersion into oblivion" would be my description of the effect of acidspunk. The resolution is not relevant; 640 by 480 may be rather low, but the quality and originality of the plugin more than compensates for this. I have tried most of the plugins that Winamp offers, and acidspunk is by far the best, no questions asked. - December 20, 2001 by Sephiroth Ofthechosen

Sometimes Works Sometimes Doesn't! - I'm afraid that this plug-in has got a little bug in it but it has a very good looking spark of style. - December 16, 2001 by Michael Naude'

love it - hey my names not kevin! - December 13, 2001 by Kevin Muma

U Just gotta have this... - It is simply the best 3D plugin there is! ?Nuff said!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - December 11, 2001 by Lars Knudsen

Wicked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - - December 8, 2001 by Chris Morton


This plugin RAWKS! - Hey, if you're wanting to see some seriously cool eye-candy that moves in response to the audio, get this plugin! The only improvement at this stage of the game is that I wish there could be multiple bmp files that get splashed upon the display instead of just the spunklogo.bmp file (which, by the way, you can rename any bmp file to spunklogo.bmp and have it splashed up occasionally on the display). I'm thinking of writing a VB app that will (hopefully) run in the background and rename various bmp files to spunklogo.bmp (and un-rename them after being displayed) to provide a bit of variety to the light show. Great work, S?ren. - December 7, 2001 by Gunnar Wiskoff

Dynamic - This is absolutely an eye to mind travel through a galaxy of awesome colors in an arrangement of visuals. Excellent work and thank you for your talent. - December 5, 2001 by Spazz Lee

Smooth as Hell - I was a big fan of Geiss and was skeptical of Acidspunk, but my opinion of it quickly changed. Acidspunk has a lot more effects then Geiss and is a lot more colorful. The textures are richer and the colors will mezmorize you for hours. The best visualization other then Valentine Dancer, but that is in a class all it's own. - November 30, 2001 by Eric Joseph

Download it NOW... - Have been using various versions of 'Geiss' since it came out several years ago as you don't need a high-spec system to run it but this is really nice... I'm sure to get the most out of it you probably need a PIII or similar but even on my grandad 233mhz at 320*200*24 res it looks pretty cool at 27 fps. Loads of config. options and U can change the logo bitmap to anything you like which is kinda fun. Low-end users don't be put off, you can still enjoy this plug-in on a crap system. Dunno what other people are on about crashes, never had that problem... Well done Mr Holsetebroe, keep it coming... Download it NOW as long as you've got a couple of hours to spare as you're gonna be glued to your monitor!! - November 27, 2001 by phil andrews

Hmm, maybe not? - Ok sorry guys, but: 1) It's slow, and i mean slow (I have an Athlon 1.1GHz and a Geforce 2 Ti) and it needs to be at 640?480 to run properly, whereas Milkdrop runs at 1280?1024 32bit and needs to be limited otherwise fps goes to 60+! 2) Its not anywhere near as good in quality as say AVS. AVS although it is slow can do literally anything with some intelligent programming so you could easily emulate anything Acidspunk can do Acidspunk is ideal for you: If you have far too much money to waste, and hence own a Geforce 3 Ti-500 and an equally overspeced system, and also know no maths so can't program your own AVS presets. Hang on though you can download AVS presets, so you would have to be lazy too. If this is you then by all means download it, that is if you can cope with the instability, (milkdrop never crashes on me) which will never be fixed as soren seems to have stopped working on it. - November 26, 2001 by Chris Dennis

THIS THING HAS A BUG!!! - THE STUPID THING CRASHES. . .FIX IT WHEN THE NEW VERSION COMES OUT!!!!!!!!! You know I would give it a decent rating if i actully SAW IT! The thing crashes before i can see the stupid thing work! - November 25, 2001 by Kasra Khalilifar

My favorite! - Wonderful colours, great animation and just plain good to look at. ONe of the best plug-ins!!! - November 22, 2001 by Jason Xu

Man! - it doesnt work on my comp it keeps giving me this error i dont know why! - November 18, 2001 by Geoferri Benne

Regan - It's stunning to look at........For the first five minutes, then BANG !. It crashes Winamp every time. Why ??????????????? - November 16, 2001 by John Thaw

Acidspunk2 - Dear Soren, I stagger astounded. Been programming numerical algorithms since '81. I could not possibly rederive your work. You give me hope for the future. Please, please, forth-flourish an Acidspunk3 ...? Love, respect, and awe --- Plainsjay - November 16, 2001 by h crowriver

good job mate - this is one of the cooler ones I have seen on here? keep up the good work and stay warm over there in England.... - November 11, 2001 by scott g-man

READ THIS !!?!! - THIS SHIT IS HOT AS HELL! I PUT MY WORD ON IT! - November 11, 2001 by rob hudson

It looks good! - It is cool!! but not the best! - November 9, 2001 by r kuijsters

You won't believe it! - If we had acidspunk when I was a kid, I wouldn't have had to trip out on all them chemicals! The transitions are smooth and well thought out, the colors are amazing in 32b, and I swear it follows the changes in tempo as well as the amplitude. I couldn't stop staring for over an hour... - November 9, 2001 by Kenneth Weinkauf

Weird face - Whats with the weird face that pops up every once and a while in the visualization. Its kind of freak!!! Has anyone else see this face??? - November 5, 2001 by Aimee Weaver

imagine!!! - Think of your greatest orgasm.. and imagine how it would look like on the screan of your pc!! and who said ther was NO BEAT RESPONSE?? BET YOUR SWEET ASS THERE IS!! - November 2, 2001 by arowana Mertens

The Best acid trip so far - Really good, When I pressed that run button it was just like droping a virtual pill (with-out the brain damage). Keep up the good work It's so kool! (-:(-: Double the score 10 stars :-):-) - October 27, 2001 by Richard Ste-Marie

Good, VERY good - It's like being inside a lava lamp - October 25, 2001 by Jean-Charles HUILLIER

Kix A$$ !!! - Just like to say that I had my comp hooked up to a projector at my buddies house party. Had Acidspunk running to some kick ass techno beats. We were all a "little messed up." It was the most amazing thing any of us had ever seem. Can't wait for the next version to come out so I can trip my buddies out again!! - October 23, 2001 by Damien Dach

no beat response?!!?! - With no beat response, this isn't winamp visualization, it's a screen saver.. sure the pictures are pretty but with no beat response it's worthless, IMO. (Especially for a "5-star" plugin??) - October 22, 2001 by John O'Boyle

asl17 - bad @$$ plug-in, download it! - October 17, 2001 by Andrew Lowther

Wow - That about covers it.. this is a completely enthralling plug in.. I have yet to find one I like better - October 14, 2001 by dan reed

Outerspace - I'm very impressive with your "Acidspunk", make me fill like in outerspace. - October 8, 2001 by Francis Wong

I LyGiT~!! - its tyte..haha tripped out mah friends n me wen we were all foked up.. =D make more mann nyce job - October 6, 2001 by Jimmy Nguyen

An Artist Ahead of HIs Time - In my opinion S?ren Holstebroe is an artist experimenting with the first interaction between pure mathematics and pure art... in short the purest form of abstract art possible in our times. The program is not perfect yet(there are still quite a lot of crashes) and in places the algorithms become too predictable... but overall I found AcidSpunk to be the most innovative visualization I've seen to date. Its transformations are quite smooth and it has the best color depth I've seen, and the interaction between the various algorithms is top-notch. In places it was so beautiful it was like pure visual poetry. Its interaction with the music is more advanced than most visualizations as well; I noticed many instances in which the graphics definitely reacted to the music rather than just moving a bit faster to the beat. The difference between AcidSpunk and any other visualization I've seen is that its use of the various visual elements takes the space in the screen into full account and it becomes more than just a bunch of obvious random computer-generated images, and more a free-floating, ever-changing painting in space. I really feel that, after having watched AcidSpunk for a time, that visualizations could indeed become an art form in every sense of the word. I hope S?ren continues to develop this not only for free Winamp downloads, but as an artistic effort of his own. My only complaint is that it crashes constantly; those of you with lower-end graphics cards should make sure you use the lower settings; but I hope the author takes some time to stabilize it a bit more. With greater stability and advancing development this could be the worlds newest art form. Cheers to S?ren for a great plugin! - October 2, 2001 by kelly foll

Sharp01 - Like,dude this is psycodelic who invented it. The perdon who made it deserves some massive respect Like totally awsome!!!!!!!! - September 30, 2001 by warren morris

Forces cold restarts - Every time i try to use it i end up having to do a cold restart on my computer! If it were possible to turn the plugin off in any other way, i'd love it. - September 30, 2001 by jay mard

That's uncalled for! - I dunno what cheshire is talking about,as long as it's very colorful and the staff ratings are satisfactionate then bug off about beat response.The real deal is that whoever made it must have worked hard on it.Maybe he didn't know what music the person had.You would have done the same thing if you knew how to make something so inspiring!!!! I love it,5 stars!!!! - September 29, 2001 by Lila Granola

simple words -!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so far - September 26, 2001 by martin riggeling

Awesome Trip - Who needs psychedelics when you've got this plug in... - September 26, 2001 by Jessicka R.

reply to the one that said his computer crashed!! - If your computer crashes, then it's because it sux!!!!! I have installed it on my computer and it runs perfect. my computer is a: AMD Athlon T-Bird 1333mhz 256 mb RAM Geforce 2 32mb graphics card. 30 gigs HD I can run a 1270*1024 and it runs with about 12 fps. for about 2 hours, then I don't want to look at it anymore and it never ever crashed.

Ace! - This is the best pluging i've ever had the pleaser(sp) to view! Top mark's there! - September 21, 2001 by SOF 145

Stupid picture - THERE IS A STUPUD PICTURE IN THERE! But besides that it's a great plug-in - September 21, 2001 by Sebastiaan van de Kamp

Pretty Good - I thought this was pretty good. - September 17, 2001 by Joe Jaena

OH MY GOD - oh my god, this is da best visualization i`ve ever downloaded! It has vivid colors, amazing movements, memerizing effects! If you got Winamp, you must get this one! - September 15, 2001 by Sidharta Surya

not bad - not bad, but i prefer Jet 1.1 but how ever nice work - September 10, 2001 by Alex Twist

don't work right - It does not look like the plugin on the screen. - September 8, 2001 by mike a

Great but..... - This is a superb plug in, the visual effects are similar to Geiss but with a lot more added (congrats, Geiss moves to second place in visuals). The controls are ok but a way to disable text (song title) rollovers completely is needed. I have two problems with this plug in that prevent me from giving it a five, first it has crashed Winamp once and has completely locked my system once since I installed it today. 800 mhz pIIIeb cpu, 256 meg cas 2 mem, and a gigabyte mobo with a via chipset. I have no idea what caused the crashes. The second problem is that there is no desktop background display function such as Space.09b has. - September 8, 2001 by Mark Kovach

Acidspunk - This plug-in is wicked! Always new patterns no matter how long you run it. I only wish the author would update it. I had to upgrade to DX8 on Win2k and the plug-in broke. I can no longer use it. :( - September 8, 2001 by Dale Zwicker

cool - cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - September 6, 2001 by karol perkowski

Sweet Spunk - This is one of the best plugins I have ever seen. And I have come across more than a few in my day. anyway. IT PLAIN ALL OUT RULES - September 5, 2001 by Beno King

nh - Superb! I used to use Jet but this one is even better. A A bit more work and this will be AWESOME - September 4, 2001 by neil hobbs

....................*STUNNED* - I was totally stunned by this plug-in (and i'm sure it wil work on almost every system!!!!!) Real nice colors & a good beat response!!!!! DL IT NOW!!!! - September 1, 2001 by Thijs Molenaar

FUNKY!!! - This plug-in is AWESOME!!! WONDERFUL!!! BRILLIANT!!! AMAZING!!! THE BEST EVER!!! Winamp users should not be playing music without this baby! - September 1, 2001 by Stuart Brooker

Crashed - Very nice visuals for the few minutes that it ran. Then it crashed! I've read others have the same problem, any answers? - August 31, 2001 by Tim Karl

Acidspunk Rocks! - i've downloaded a lot of shit on my computer, some of which is very very cool, but nothing is as cool as acidspunk! i load up a bunch of music, hit 'control-shift-k' and let 'er rip. it ALWAYS gets peoples' attention without fail. anyone who passes by stops to watch and enjoy. thank you for providing us with Acidspunk! i dare you to top this one... - August 31, 2001 by rik steven

why? - absolutely beautiful, but NO BEAT RESPONSE!!!!!!!!! unless you're listening to coil or similar musics, what is the point of a tripped out vis without any sort of response to the beat? otherwise, i love it, but the beat response is far too important to use anything without it. - August 27, 2001 by cheshire morgan

I got 3 letters for ya! - W O W! Nuff said. - August 26, 2001 by murray erb

Yeah it's cool but............. - when you watch this couple minutes winamp crashes down - August 26, 2001 by Janne Kayhko

A MUST HAVE--DOWNLOAD NOW - Great variety of 3-D effects!!! You'll be addicted for life! Only bad thing is that you can only run it in fullscreen, but for this one, that's, I think, the only way you should see it - August 24, 2001 by Thomas Jackson

Alomst perfect... - The support for 2-byte characters is not that good, also some 'presets' are needed. - August 23, 2001 by Stephen Wong


the BOMB!! - I've downloaded plugin after plugin and none can compare! Motion and graphics are by far the best- ACIDSPUNK is "THE BOMB" for real! - August 21, 2001 by CYNTHIA WOOD

You Gotta See This - THIS ROCKS!!!!!!! All I can say is DOWNLOAD IT!!!!! GREAT JOB. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. - August 19, 2001 by Frances Blackstone

oh yeah - really...i meen unbelivebly good - August 19, 2001 by Andrew Cook

hit it up.. - this plugin remains (behind geiss) my favorite. the effects rock and it renders so trippy, you cant be without this one. its a wonder - August 18, 2001 by kris bromley

Awesome! - this is great, unlike other VHS with periodic screen changes this one blends them in with the next, instead of just stopping and starting a new one, and a damn good way of doing it. Only thing that i dont like is that it seems like most of it doesn't react to the music you are playing. - August 17, 2001 by John Clements

Very nice - I think that this is a very good plug in with a wide variety of colours. The movememt of the colours move well with the music! - August 13, 2001 by Tom Hanna

VERY NICE - This one is one of the best plugins out there. Good visually and very good variety. I HIGHLY recommend this to everyone who listens to trance or anything with a good beat. - August 11, 2001 by Ian Newman

Awesome - I have seen many plug-ins on Winamp, and I have to say that this is one of if not the BEST you can get!! The person who created this plug-in has some real talent - the visuals created within are fast, bright and entertaining, bursting with life at the right moments and constantly changing in line with what's being played. This is what plug-ins are all about - get it now! :-) - August 3, 2001 by Wayne Haddock

Da B00MB - This plugin whoops soom serious...well you know. If you are a fan of other "trippy" plugins, you will love this one. It gives you the options to take screen shots, and it you know a little, you can set it as your wall paper. This is an all around great plug in, a must have! - August 1, 2001 by Jeffrey Scammell

?~?hit'? Phat ~? - Alot of colors.. its phat.. better than Punkie and Geiss! ~ Dee - July 21, 2001 by Princess Dee

COOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLL! - S?ren Holstebroe is an amazing plug-in maker! This is like the best plug-in I've ever seen! My eyes couldn't believe it! One word: AMAZING!!!!!! - July 19, 2001 by Chris C.

Awesome - Acidspunk is so far ahead of whoever is in second place that there is no race. I have deleted all of my visualizations....even Valentine Dancer. This thing draws you into it!!! - July 15, 2001 by Rick Johnson

This is f*cking awesome! - I can't say I've tried them all (without lying that is) but I have tried many of the top vizualization plug-ins but this one takes the quadruple layer cake. It is even better than G-Force. Even passing-by relatives who rarely even glance at the screen have to stop for AT LEAST five minutes to watch this spectacular mind bending show. I wouldn't give it more than 5 stars, but it's not like that's an insult. Especially cool with Tonight, Tonight by SP. - July 10, 2001 by Jesse Brown

ACiD SpUnK RuLz - This plug-in is dope, it is very trippy and is better than Geiss anyday! BradBudz - July 10, 2001 by Brad Quarello

THIS IS SOME GOOD ACID..... - wow. simply put the most amazing thing to look at not created by nature. an absolute must even when not in an alternate consciousness. 5 stars seems to give this prodcuer injustice. so pack your bags and get ready for this legal trip that will truly blow your mind. rock on. - July 7, 2001 by Chris H

THIS IS BEST VISUAL, HANDS DOWN! - Ok this is the best plugin. I have tried them ALL with the best equipment, with the best processors, and memory and video and all that other bull shit you all post. For years I have read and tried them all and I still think this is the by far the best one. - July 6, 2001 by Randy Breedlove


THE BEST!!!!!! - I have been using acid spunk for the better part of a year and there isn't anything that can touch it!Hmmm? I wonder if there will ever be anything better? Trip trip!!!! - July 1, 2001 by jamie jones

Can't be legal - Something this good can't be legal.... - June 29, 2001 by RIAA sux

AcidSpunk Pro - This IS The Best Plugin On The Winamp Site I just Hope It Could Do More And Go Faster - June 29, 2001 by JESSE SYRNYK

IT BLOWS MY MIND - This plugin is the greatest one I have ever seen. It completely blew my mind. I stared at it for over a half hour. It's that good. Props to the producer... I eagerly await their next creation. ~Seismic~ - June 25, 2001 by Paul Fusco-Gessick

spectacular! - you gotta see the skills of this badass visual! - June 23, 2001 by ronald terebo

Recomended - My first plug in download and far out what have we here a Van Gough?!!Almost but Definitly a piece of art,I have recently downloaded other recomended plug ins but this one stood out,by far the best, Hi quality I highly recomend it - June 23, 2001 by Jason Elliott

Superkiller - This is a must. Time to let it roll - June 21, 2001 by Frank Hill

OH MY GAWD - I was a big Geiss fan for a long time but this plugin improves on the show geiss puts on. Totaly amazing with the lights off and some good GOA or House. My friend you have out done yourself AGAIN! origanal Spunk was amazing this one has taken the next step!!!! - June 19, 2001 by Barry Gates

Totally crushes Geiss! - This is the most rocking plug-in ever created! Download the latest version of Acid Spunk & pay tribute to the author. Truly the *only plug-in you'll ever need! Later, Cyberdeth. - June 18, 2001 by Ron Ice

Tripping Out - Where am I? I can't feel my legs. The room is getting smaller. - June 17, 2001 by Jonathan Farnsworth

NOTHING ELSE, will even do!!!!!! - This ACID ROCKS!!!!!!! Don't even waste your time downloading any other plug-in. This is all you'll NEED> - June 11, 2001 by Chris Pags

Exellent!!! - i like this one because it has loads of affects,and the way it reacts with the music.You have to be carefull with this...IT PUTS YOU IN A TRANCE!! - June 10, 2001 by Alan Parker

Spunkie Spunk - Nothing blows GEISS away, you stupid phuck!!! - June 8, 2001 by Jeremy Poarch

THIS IS THE ONLY PRESET YOU'LL NEED - This has to be one of the greatest visualisations ever concieved. It is seriously cool, and other than the amusing (for UK residents, at least) repetition of the word 'spunk', it really is the best visualisation you can get. - June 1, 2001 by Daniel and Duncan , The Swain Team


OMG - Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohooooooooooooooooo awesome fuckin ride!!!!!!!!!!! u deserve more than 5 starz man! - May 28, 2001 by Robo Bobo

Awesome! - This is the BEST visualisation Ive ever seen! Its amazing! I HIGLY RECCOMEND DOWNLOADING IT! - May 27, 2001 by Thomas Greany

10 stars plz! =) - Nothing beats this!! Weee... my new computer (1.2ghz) gives me 26 fps at 800x600x32... - May 20, 2001 by Mulle Meck

Visuals with F*#@ing Personality! - This is the one vis plug that everyone should have. I have downloaded almost every vis plug I have been able to get my hands on, plus several dozen AVS packs, and few if any even come close to the magic of ACIDSPUNK! To make the best plugin for visuals is to make a better plugin than this, and I've yet to see it. This is the ONE to outdo, and Soren has outdone himself all around. Kickin'. Totally amazing! - May 18, 2001 by Glitter Bomb

WAAHHAHAAA - holy fawk, this is the best viz out there, it blows even Geiss away... - May 17, 2001 by Luke B

delete the rest & just keep this one! - turn off the lights & watch it go. you won't need another visual plug-in. this is the one. the only one... try it, you'll see for yourself. & don't forget to kill the lights first. it's a spectacle of a light show in itself. kick back & dig it. thank the creator. he wins the best of the bunch award if you ask me. - May 12, 2001 by miss mmmyka

It simply rocks!!! - This is the best VIS for WinAMP I will ever see (except if S?ren decides to write another one). To guys @ WinAMP: "Please check authors homepage and e-mail because I can't reach him at neither." - May 9, 2001 by Igor Levicki

Outstanding - the combinations of effects in this plug, let really feel the music in a whole different way you got to try this, for real!!!! - May 8, 2001 by Ricky Unknown

very good - but sometimes crashes my cpu :( - May 6, 2001 by MummRa .

Not the best but.. - Its trippy as heck for any of you 420 folks, Geiss is my favorite over this one, but there is still room for this one in there too! - April 1, 2001 by Jeffery Cockerham
