Trapcode Sound Keys

Color Group

The Color Group allows you to customize the color and look of your VU meters.


Color Map allows you to select a gradient preset or to create a custom gradient to apply to the frequency bars. Click one of the preset gradients on the right side of the Color Map area to select and apply it to your bars. Or double click one of the gradient stops to manually change a color in the gradient.


The Gradient pop-up menu allows you to choose an orientation to use for applying the Color Map to your bars. The default setting is Horizontal which applies the gradient from left to right (seen above). You can also choose Vertical, which applies the colors from the bottom of the bars to the top.
