Here's a quick tip on request. It's probably one of possibly many setups to connect sound with Thinking Particles. In this example I connected the strength of the sound effector through a sample effector node with the intensity and angle of a spotlight which drives a PMatterwaves node. In order to make it a little more interesting I plugged the strength also into a TPGravity node. The PMatterwaves in itself is a very powerful particle generator node inside Thinking Particles. It's highly recommended to invest some time in it.
