Create Animation Keyframes from Audio

Trapcode Soundkeys is a plugin for After Effects that analyzes your audio and generates keyframes you can easily link to your layer's animation properties. Scale, rotate, and move to the beat. Or use audio to drive effects.

Integrate Sound With Other Effects

Sound Keys can be used to trigger other visual effects. For example, combine Trapcode Sound Keys with Trapcode Particular to have particles emitted, based on a drumbeat. Isolate a snare drum hit as the trigger, or just let the general volume drive the effect.
