Hi - if you preview 30 seconds onwards at this clip it will show you the style I'm trying to mimic:

I've used soundkeys before but I was wondering if the frequencies could be used to display a selection of images or clips ? Or was this done with old fashioned editing ?!

Yeah, Soundkeys ought to be able to do that. You'll obviously want to tweak the effect settings to match the desired frequencies; it'll make all the difference

Thanks Dave - I was wondering if you or anyone else could be a bit more specific...I know how to get soundkeys working to get the rhythm to move a camera/rotate an image/increase the intensity of an effect...but I was wondering how I would go about utilising soundkeys to show a different image each time the bassdrum peaked for example ?

yep... and setting the falloff for a range to 'none' (integrated)' will cause the output for that range to increment for each beat. you can use that value to drive an expression to change an image.

Hi Joey,

You can do this, here's how;

1. Create a comp containing all of your images
2. Drag this comp (nest it) into the comp where you have your sound keys effect working
3. Apply Time Remapping to the nested comp
4. Create an expression to link the Sound keys required output to the Time Remapping value
5. you can use the Linear expression to fine tune the ranges used during the conversion of sound keys values to TR values.

You might find this tutorial useful where I use a similar technique with the "Convert Audio to Keyframes" assistant.

Hope this helps.
