When it comes to software, you’re only as good as your users. Whether considering Photoshop or the humble iTunes visualizer, it’s just code until customers do something with it — a good stuff sample from a Sound Spectrum user is pictured above and there are more samples, real and virtual, available here.

Andy O’Meara, a.k.a. SoundSpectrum, has updated two of his most-popular iTunes visualizers, SoftSkies and WhiteCap, both of which can be purchased as either $20 (standard) and $30 (deluxe) packages. Free trials are available, as well.

Thereupon, long-time iTunes user favorite WhiteCap 5.6 (version history) is a more modest update:

Apple Online Store• Added several new Backgrounds!
• Added GIF image support
