Skrillex Audio Visualizer Live Wallpaper Joins Deadmau5, Daft Punk; Commence Fist Pump
XDA Senior member Metastable, creator of Epic Audio Visualizer, has done it again. You may remember a story in August here that followed Metastable as he developed a Deadmau5 inspired music visualizing live wallpaper. An interesting read for developers and Deadmau5 fans alike, the original thread (here) spawned a Daft Punk themed demo (here) and now a Skrillex version joins the mix. Metastable’s live wallpapers are music-reactive renderings of artists stage setups.
Electronica is known for spectacular light shows, and Skrillex’ dubstep performances are no exception. Designed by Sensory Sync, Skrillex’ rig is one of the biggest and most advanced out there. Metastable’s wallpaper is an excellent recreation and it responds to all your favorite music seamlessly. He plans to add more effects and LEDs to his emulated light show later. From the original thread:

Check it out and enjoy, let me know what you think.
Screenshots don’t compare to seeing this live wallpaper in action. Check out the release thread here to get it for yourself!
