How to Use
There are many different visual effects in CineVox, including mirrors, spirals, bubbles, kaleidoscope and more. The effects change colour and shape with volume, so the louder the sound, the more the effect changes. Sounding fricatives (hisses, shhh etc) will change the display with additional effects. In some modes it gives a snowstorm effect, in others it makes your image black and white and in the hall of mirrors mode it further distorts your image.
