Geiss 2 is a Winamp audio-visualization plug-in that lets you
fly through the sound waves of the music you're listening to.
Geiss 2 is a sequel to the original winamp plug-in, Geiss, developed in 1998 and 1999. Now it's back, with higher resolutions, smooth blends, full multimon support, new movements and palettes, 'mouse steering' (hit INSERT), and even DESKTOP MODE (hit ALT+D). It even dynamically stitches together many chunks of pre-tuned assembly code for the main loop, to find the fastest code for your machine.
The latest (and first) version is 1.0 [download here], released on June 17, 2003.
Geiss 2 can be installed to Winamp 2 or 3 (or both, but you'd have
to run the installer twice).
To install to Winamp 2, just run the installer as usual. Once the installation is complete, launch Winamp 2 and hit CTRL+P to load the Preferences screen. Select 'visualization' under 'plug-ins' on the left. Now you should see a list of visualization plugins on the right; select Geiss 2, and click 'start' to run it. In the future, you can use the shortcut key CTRL+SHIFT+K to run Geiss 2, and ALT+K to configure it.
To install to Winamp 3, run the installer as usual, but note that if you also have Winamp 2.x installed, you'll have to manually choose the Winamp 3 directory, since this plugin installs to Winamp 2 by default. Then launch Winamp 3 and hit CTRL+P to load the Preferences screen. Then, on the left, scroll down to 'ClassicVis' and select it. (If you don't see it, you probably need to download the Classic Visualization Component). Now you should see a list of visualization plugins on the right; select Geiss 2, and click 'start' to run it.
