Here are 55 old Sonique visual plugins I have collected, tested (on MB 2.4 and 2.5) and renamed for use in MB.

Includes:
  • Acidspunk
  • Corona
  • Faited
  • Rabbit Hole
  • Scope
and other old favourites

Just unzip into the "Plugins" sub-folder in your MusicBee installation folder.

Download available here

I'm not a programmer by any stretch of the imagination (still working on the first chapter of C# for Dummies  ;) ) but I do have a copy of a Sonique visualiser plugin test file that is in a MS Visual Express project form.

If anyone wants to try writing a new visualiser for MB, just give a yell and I will post it to them.

Over 100 downloads  -  less then a month  -  no comments   ???

Guess that disproves the statistic that only approx 1.7% of internet users say "Thank You" for resources provided to them for free   :P

Thanks boroda74   :)

I guess my results are there to keep the statistical average below 2%   :D

actually i'm sad that most people don't want just to say thank you for your work. at least i'd know that my plugins worked correctly.

Thank you for providing those files from Sonique, but I cannot get them to work.

I was really excited to get Rabbit Hole, as that is the one that I have always liked the best, and have never been able to find a visual that I like anywhere near as well, but it doesn't work. Most of the Sonique visuals just do nothing in this program, but Rabbit Hole actually gives an error.

They show up in the program to be used, but they do not work. I have tried putting them in different folders, just in case, but the Plugins folder you said to put them in is the only one that makes them show up in the player.
 
If you know of something that I can do to make them work, I would appreciate you letting me know.

I do appreciate the effort you put into making them available. :)

I just downloaded.  Thanks for the fantastic visualizers.

They all seem to work just fine, although I have to "un-tic" Show Visualizer then change to a new one.
If I just select a new visualizer without un-ticing Show Visualizer then nothing happens or the plugin crashes.

I am using MB ver 2.5.5575

@ Stang777

If they still don't work after updating to MB2.5, you may need to delete the vis.ini file from the plugins folder and re-start MB.

Thank you so very much, that worked. :)

Like Blockhead, I do have to uncheck the start vis option before changing them or the program crashes or there are errors, but as long as I do that, the ones I have tried work great.

I had to give up Sonique when I went to Windows 8 as it wouldn't work and I have missed it. No other program had visuals I liked but now, thanks to you, I finally have my Rabbit Hole back. Yay! 

I appreciate you making the Sonique files available for this program and for helping me make them work, thank you again :)
