Thanks Len!

Good to see the tools and content put to good use!

I put the original version of this together a couple of years ago.  The
avatars, animations, and drumset were created by Victoria Turri (
GammonBrat, and the late Maurio Turri's Wife ).

I implemented and used a custom Node, AudioSensor, to trigger the animations
based on beat detection and frequency distribution.  Did you use the
Flux AudioSensor in your version?  If not, are the animations in sync with
the music?

Attached is a screen shot of the original version.  You can see the
frequency distribution animating in the background.

Unfortunately, the AudioSensor no longer works in the Vivaty Player.  Works
fine in the old Flux Player. What player did you use?
