A realtime audio visualizer for Rainmeter similar to the ones used in the Monstercat videos.

Supports all major media players, including full Spotify, Google Play Music Desktop Player and Chrome/Firefox webplayer support (thanks to RobertFrydenlund and @tjhrulz for the amazing plugins used in this skin).

Minimum Requirements:

  • Windows 7 or higher.
  • Rainmeter 4.2 Beta (r3074) or higher.

Features

  • Live visualization of the audio output
  • Customizable colors and fonts
  • Genre-based colors (AIMP, CAD, iTunes, WMP and Winamp)
  • Cover-based colors (All supported players)
  • Support for all major media players
  • Full Spotify (Desktop & Web Player) support
  • Full Google Play Music Desktop Player & Web Player support
  • Full Youtube, Soundcloud, and other web music players
  • Media controls & progress bar
  • Settings skin for easier customization/configuration
  • Hide skin when media player is not running

Important notes

  • You need at least Rainmeter 4.2 Beta (r3074) or higher to get all features of this skin. You can find the newest version on https://www.rainmeter.net/
  • After installation you can access the settings by right-clicking the visualizer or song information and then clicking on Open Settings.
  • Due to limitations of Rainmeter/the plugin used for the visualization the complete audio output of your system will be shown on the visualizer. For the best experience only play music. This is something I can’t fix.
