This is a total bug. Beginning with iTunes 12.7.x, all visualizers will open in a separate window, rather than inside the iTunes window itself. However, when I was using 12.7.4, I suddenly discovered the fact that I cannot click on any on-screen buttons to select scenes/colormaps, change settings, etc.

This issue might also affect all other SoundSpectrum products. Apple is probably doing this so that they can keep iTunes more secure than I expected.

Here's one other thing: if you resize the visualizer window, then it becomes blurry than I thought. This often indicates that you are no longer able to control Aeon's visuals.

So, here are two options to work around this problem:
    - Port the toolbar from G-Force, and remove the on-screen menu from the iTunes version only This will make it possible to control its visuals, change its settings, and select themes to choose from.
    - Remove iTunes support completely, and have SoundSpectrum/Apple perform additional diagnostics to help determine the problem. iTunes support will be restored once the situation has been resolved.


Does anyone else have the same problem? Well I do...

Same problem with WhiteCap. iTunes 12.7.4, I can't access the menu on-screen at all and when I maximize the Visualizer it looks pixelated like the resolution is stretched.

are you using the very latest version of itunes? if so you will have to wait until Andy redoes the progs to work with itunes again.

Every time Apple releases a new update Soundspectrum progs no longer function although you'd think that by now they would keep SS in mind when they update their crap.

Hang in there I'm sure a new version of Whitecap Aeon and G-force will be up soon.

Wait a sec... check this post out! Although it's only for Mac users, it may also affect Windows users as well:

It must be something related to the plug-ins.

Hello All

My thinking is that Apple is making life as difficult as possible for SoundSpectrum products. They as a company (Apple) have forgotten just how much AOM helped them out in the past.

To all those affected by iTunes not allowing any 3rd party plugins (e.g SS visualizers):

Apple has now released iTunes version 12.7.1.14 for Windows which is now available.

This resolves (and restores) all plugins if they have not been removed manually or by a clean install.

The only remaining issue is a full-screen / minimize shortcut [ ] glitch,
in the meantime using the ESC button or CTRL+F may help you around this until SS can asses the damage and implement a FIX for this abnormal full-screen behaviour.

Hope this helps, Wink
