I've been following this thread in silence for a quite some time now and I thought I'd might contribute my thought about this project.
I myself am a very happy owner of a Philips amBX set with the fan and rumble expansion pack.
What I have seen and tested so far is very promising, Uhyve did a great job on developing this software.
I especially like the possibility to control the fans and rumble pack, which is a fantastic feature compared to Aurora Synthesia.
I was wondering if there are even more features possible.
Therefore I would like to give some suggestions:
I am a lover of music and love the way how my amBX set lights up the room with the music I listen to.
I also love to have 'interaction' with the music I listen to.
For example, my headset is a Roccat Kave. This headset has a subwoofer "rumble" feature that makes the earcups rumble slightly to the beat of the music or an explosion in a game or movie.
I would love it if this feature could be implemented in glOW, and I think other users would appreciate it too since they would be able to replicate the rumble effect in games (or pretty much any situation they like, provided that sound is played) that do not have a native amBX profile.
This could be done in the same way that AS uses it's light organ system. FMod analyzes the audio signal and translates that to usable signal for the amBX lights.
In this case it could trigger the rumble pack to function for audio frequency's between 0 and 200Hz, which are usually found in music as either bass or in games and movies as explosions, earthquakes, car exhaust noise etc.
If needed a slider could be integrated so that the user could adjust the level of rumble and the frequency threshold (let's say between 0 and 1000Hz, for example).
This exact same system could be utilized for the fans as well.
Only in this case the fans get triggers when a wind like noise is detected (which is in fact only a different frequency range).
Of course these are all just suggestions and implementing them is probably quite hard... But we can dream right!
