The following are screen shots of the standard Blursk presets.

You can download the complete set of presets from here and copy it to ~/.xmms/blursk-presets.

Alternatively, you can use your browser to select the fixed-pitch text string below the preset titles, below, and then paste them into blursk by middle-clicking on the Blursk window.

aurora

16502018C.sMNNNB/FoMFNN/RINNNN

A radial spectrum, surrounded by flowing colored halos.


blur scope

16449715DMNNNB/SMFNY/OLYNNN

The one that started it all...


box spectrum

65024FSWNND/BMRNN/SEYNNN

Points around the edge light up in response to various frequencies of sound. The points then blur and recede toward the center.


bump scope

16183306DMNNNB/SMFNY/OLYNBN

Blursk's version of the bump scope visualization plugin.


burning logo

16737063FMNNNB/CSRBY/SAYBNN

A flame-like spectrum, with a superimposed "Blursk" logo.


butterfly

65024C.sSWNNS/BMSNN/SEYNNN

Similar to "box spectrum", but with different colors and using the "smear" blur style.


cat scan

11597312RFNNNB/FFSNY/RAYNRN

The shape of the blob changes with the sound.


cubism

65535C.strMNNNB/TMMNN/MMYIAN

Some parts of the screen move, while other parts are frozen. The areas swap on each beat.


drain

14980608RSNNNC/DMRNN/SEYNAN

Colors spiral in from the edges.


fan

16711680MSNNYB/FMNNY/MRYNNN

A radar sweep, which leave four separate trails moving in different directions.


flag

65535C.bSNNNB/RaMRNY/MRNNNN

A radar sweep with random blur motion.


flame scan

15944448FSWNNB/F.aMFNN/SEYNRN

A blend of "box spectrum" and "scan".


flashbulb

11597312DMNYYB/PMMNY/MNYRNN

There is no signal, but beats cause a logo to be drawn. As the logo fades, different parts of it flash to white briefly.


foil

65278LMNNNB/FoMRNN/FLYNNN

The layers seem to shimmer. This works better on quiet music.


fractal drums

16771584BMNNNB/F.sMFNY/PFYNBN

I made this one because I wanted a wallpaper mode that wasn't too distracting. Sound causes ripples starting in the center, which move toward the edge of the inner circle. At the same time, the smaller circles mimic the ripples.


frenetic

65278GFNNNF/F.fMSNN/PLNNNN

Shafts of fading color shoot out from the center, and then vanish.


gas cloud

16220160C.MNNNS/F.bFSNN/RSYNRN

Colors get pushed around the screen, and fade.


heat wave

65021C.SNNNW/RMRNN/SLYNNN

Layers of color rise above a spectrum. The borders between colors move in an interesting way.


interference

65278C.strMNYNB/FoMFNN/FMNNNN

For some music, this looks really cool; for other music, it is just a hopeless mish-mash.


lens

16336128MMNNYB/RipMFNY/MMYNNN

I chose the name because it looks like a blur scope as viewed through a Fresnel lens.


metalic

65278MeMNNNB/R.MSNY/OLYNBN

This looks like moving blobs of molten metal.


nucleus

720120C.strMNYNB/F.fMFNY/PFNNNN

You've got to see this one move!


quick change

16417277SMNNNB/RaFSNN/MRYNNN

A simple radar sweep, with blur motions changing as fast as possible -- about twice per sweep.


radioactive bob

16187392MMNNYC/TMFBoY/PNYBoNN

A very simple configuration which merely flashes the "bob" image and allows it to become distorted.


random flower

65278RanMNNNR/R.MFNN/FLYNNN

Continually changing motions and colors, with a "flower" signal.


random mirrored spectrum

16554506RanMNNNR/R.MFNN/MMYRNN

Like "random flower", but with mirrored spectrum instead.


ripple

65535C.sMNNN/RaMFNY/HSYNNN

Bands of color move randomly around a "starburst" signal.


roller

4522234StrMNYNB/CFSNY/SAYNAN

This looks sort of like a close-up view of a paint roller in action.


rose

65278RMNNNW/TSSNN/FLYNAN

My favorite.


scan

11531520RMNNNB/F.aMFNN/SNYIAS

No signal, but the screen is inverted on each beat and that provides some color. The image flows around randomly.


sparkler

16533504MeMNNYB/FMSNY/MRYNNN

A radar sweep. Loud sounds produce white spots which bloom behind the sweep.


subliminal logo

11597312RanSNNN/RaMRRY/FLNRRN

Random images are incorporated into a typical configuration.


testing 1 2 3

15533542FSNNNR/R.MFMN/MINNNF

I created this one mostly as a way to test the new features of Blursk.


tunnel

11795200C.SNNNB/FoMRNN/FLYNNN

The image slowly moves outward from the center, and dissolves into blobs along the way. This works best for low-frequency sounds.


tunnel2

16073728C.MNNYD/F.fMFNY/FLYNNN

This is a different variation of "tunnel". It uses less CPU power and generally looks a little better.


wax

15716612FFNNYB/GravMSNN/OLYNAN

Nice colors, looks looks like it is melting.


wiggler

65021C.SNNND/F.aFFNN/RSYNNN

The shape wiggles aimlessly around the window.


xmms

65278DSNNNC/RaMRXY/FLNXNN

A fairly ordinary configuration, but with an XMMS logo added.
