  Aeon as an Application  
  Although most users use Aeon as a visual plugin inside an audio player, Aeon also exists as a standalone application that visualizes any sound source (e.g., line-in, CD audio, microphone). This is useful when you want to visualize audio that doesn’t exist in the form of an audio file (e.g. mp3, WAV) and is typically useful for live performances events or social gatherings. See the license agreement for the terms of use and visit the SoundSpectrum website for the latest versions and announcements. If you upgrade to Aeon Platinum, the standalone version is included with Aeon Platinum.


  1. Run Aeon Standalone. If you have trouble locating it, search your system for "Aeon Standalone". On Windows, use can select Start | All Programs | Aeon in order to easily access the standalone version (on Mac OS X, Aeon Standalone is on the Aeon Platinum install volume).
  2. With Aeon Standalone running, press SHIFT A to switch audio input sources.
    • You can also switch audio input sources by right-clicking (or control-clicking) on the Aeon window.
  3. Use the [ ] keys to adjust the preamp scale. See the customizing section for a description of the response vs. preamp scale.
    • In most cases, adjusting the visual responsiveness (described above) should give you the desired result and you will not need to change the preamp scale. You’ll only want to adjust the preamp scale if line-in level is abnormally high or low (e.g., you have a poor microphone that only gives you a 10% of the signal level).
