Audio Visualizer - Can't use audio bus?


Recommended Posts

I just tried to start a new profile using the "Audio Visualizer" option and was greeted with the warning that I must use Corsair audio products as an input/output device to make it work.

 

Is there no way to simply have it use the PC's audio bus to drive the signal? I do not have any Corsair audio products, didn't even know they made audio interfaces honestly. I've got a Focusrite audio interface and don't have any plans to change that at the moment, so I guess I'm out of luck for the jukebox effect?

 

If so that's a little bit of a bummer as even Gigabyte RGB Fusion (which sucks in my opinion) allows you to use the music from the system bus to drive the lighting. Hopefully there's a way around the Corsair audio device restriction.

There is software that allows you to interface the audio in like this one http://alex.krastev.org/users/profiles/1005/profile yes you will have to pay for it but it works very well, there is also this one https://www.project-aurora.com/ which will bring rgb effects from games that only works with certain brands etc razer to corsair and this one https://github.com/DarthAffe/KeyboardAudioVisualizer/releases which is a free audio visualizer which I haven't tried but seen reports it works.

If you are not utilizing a Corsair headset the audio visualizing effect will not work in iCUE.

Thanks, just paid for RGBeat and will try it out.

I just wanted to confirm that "Corsair Audio Visualizer" doesn't work with a K95 keyboard. If it does, I don't know how to get it to work. All my corsair items work properly in 'individual' lighting layers mode and in 'lighting link' mode.

 

However, when I turn off all RGB through ICUE, then try to make my keyboard light up using "Corsair Audio Visualizer" nothing happens.

 

Here is a video of what I'm trying to do. Any help would be appreciated.

As I stated in a previous post the Audio Visualizer effect will not work without a Corsair headset. This is not a bug, this is not a broken feature. This is a feature that is only available with a Corsair headset.

Gotcha.

 

One more dumb question (sorry): If I get a corsair headset, can I link ALL my corsair items (Memory (vengeance pro RGB); H100i acapellax; Commander Pro; K95 keyboard; and the new corsair headset) so they all react simultaneously to music (i.e. through lighting link / Audio Visualizer)?

 

That would be the bomb.

 

Thanks.

Based on the devices you listed they should all support the Audio Visualizer effect.

 

Hello,

 

Great topic, and I also have a dumb question ^^

 

I do understand that in order to "activate" the audio visualizer we need a Corsair Headset. But does the feature will be available with any model, no matters if this is a USB or a 3.5mm headset ? Or do we need to buy a specific type of headset?

 

Thank you for your help ;)

As far I'm aware off it needs to be the usb as the app needs a digital connection to the corsair device in question for the audio visualizer to work as the 3.5mm headsets is analogue meaning no data transfer at all from/to the device so the audio visualizer will not work.

Hello,

Sounds obvious, many thanks for the clarification ^^
