that's not possible for Winamp to use one plugin for both aspects.

what i'm suggesting is that you can do it as a DSP but pass that to your own vis engine and then with that say running on a different thread could update / use data being fed as needed so that shouldn't affect the DSP handling much and still allows you to do what you're trying to achieve.

i had thought i'd seen other true vis plug-ins do some sort of musical analysis. either way, you're going to be looking at some compromises since you want the higher data resolution but be a vis plug-in is really just designed for prettiness rather than data processing (a guess a legacy issue from when it was added over a decade ago).

only other option might be to have a look at the Milkdrop v1 source code as that does some funky things with audio data so that might have something of use in there or not - just thinking of what might help.
