Marmalade Multimedia is pleased to announce the release of FlashAmp 2 for Windows and Macintosh. FlashAmp is the sound-visualization utility for Macromedia Flash used by hundreds of Flash developers around the world. With the original FlashAmp 1 and Flash you could:

- easily create lip sync for animated characters
- synchronize animations to sound
- draw sound waveforms
- draw VU meters
- use audio cue points in Flash!

FlashAmp 2 includes all the functionality of FlashAmp 1 as well as...

- output of spectrum (frequency) data for music visualizations,
eq displays and other applications
- batch processing of sound files with error logging
- stereo support (lists for left and right channels)
- optional dB value scaling
- optional normalization of input sound data
- improved output file format and a new file format allows FlashAmp data to be used directly in Flash via an ActionScript #include statement.
- a new more intuitive user-interface
- output data is displayed on-screen in FlashAmp

There are also fixes for numerous bugs and annoying issues - a complete fix list is available on the website (see below).

Three editions of FlashAmp have been released: FlashAmp Lite, FlashAmp Standard and FlashAmp Pro.
