Downloads advent calendar: get WhiteCap free today

Advanced visualizations to give your music a new look


The holidays are an expensive time, so we’re bringing you a special treat: a full, free, fun Windows program to download every day until Christmas.

Behind the 13th door on our downloads advent calendar is WhiteCap – an advanced media player plugin to bring your songs to life.

Most media players come with visualizations that product multicolored patterns that shift in time with the music, but WhiteCap goes a step further, creating sophisticated wireframe meshes that deform in time with your tracks.

WhiteCap also works with live input from your PC’s microphone, so you can see complex visualizations as you record your own music, podcasts or narration.

The visualizations are customizable using a simple system of menus – change the shape of the mesh, colour scheme, background and more with a couple of clicks.

WhiteCap is compatible with Windows Media Player, WinAmp, MediaMonkey, iTunes, JetAudio and Realplayer. During installation it will detect all compatible players on your PC and install the appropriate plugins. Once that’s done, open your media player as normal, access WhiteCap through its visualizations menu and start experimenting.

Upgrading to WhiteCap Gold or Platinum gives you additional customization options, but the free version is brilliant in its own right and will really liven up your music library. Download it today and see your songs in a new light!
