What's new in v1.5.2 ? Just Check the change log file stored in ...skins/tech/ folder

BEFORE INSTALLING, check requirements below

*Cleaning previous Tech Installation
  • If you want to update an existing TECH config, you MUST delete the previous .../skins/tech folder before extracting the new .zip file, otherwize, it could generate some WSH crash later!

*Required Fonts
*Required dependencies
*Installation Notes
  1. Install foobar2000 if not already done (Normal or Portable installation, as you prefer), then :
    • If Normal install done, extract the .zip file into your foobar2000 user profile folder, on Seven it's C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000
    • If Portable install done, extract the .zip file into your foobar2000 program folder, for example C:\My Programs\foobar2000
  2. Run foobar2000
  3. When prompted, select as default interface "ColumnsUI" then OK
  4. Now Tech layout is visible, first your have to configure your media library : use the main menu entry "Library>Configure"
  5. You have to setup Shpeck component: 1st, rename file to winamp.exe (in the user profile folder), then go to "File>Preference>Visualizations>Shpeck" then Change Winamp Directory with your foobar2000 user profile folder, it contains the fake winamp.exe (just renamed from After that an available plugin will appear in the list, configure if you need, click Start/Stop button to active the panel
  6. Installation is now over, you may have to set some other useful features, like "Cursor follows Playback" (menu "Playback") ...

It's that easy :D

- Right click on the ELPlaylist > Group/Sort by ... will give you 4 presets :)
- Try the right click on all items ... there are some useful context menu there ...
- For a smoother scrolling in playlist, disable Pseudo Transparency in ELPlaylist settings (recommended for slow computer or netbooks or simply is playlist is so huge!)

This is a work of art! I've been using Foobar for over 10 years, how come I haven't heard about this amazing skin all this time? I changed the lyrics and bios components to the most up to date ones so far and everything works perfectly. Thank you for your very detailed work! 😀

Thank you for this foobar theme

hey mate thanks for the download <3

Also any way to change colour of the song lists and status bar, one's too dark and the other is too bright

Hi Br3tt. I have DirectX 12 already installed yet when trying to configure/start the Winamp plugin it says it has "Failed to initialize DirectX 9.0 or later..... The latest version of DirectX must be installed etc", followed by an error message :"Plugin's initialization procedure failed."

Do I have to install from your link above and if I do will that cause conflicts between my already installed version of DirectX?

The link to the font does not work?
Great skin. I'm new to foobar2000 and was surprised how easy it was to get going. The only problem I have is that the "ALBUM BROWSER" button at the bottom only gives me a line of empty boxes, where I assume album covers should be. How do I turn this function on?

Thanks again for excellent  work.
Resurrected ancient account just to say this is f*cking awesome. 
Hey man, sick skin, but for some reason it is splitting some of my albums in to multiples, with the same title and album art, but each instance has a few of the albums songs. Why are they all not just under one heading?

It looks like 

"Album 1"

"Album 2"



and so on
Try this: right click on the ELPlaylist > settings > Grouping tab > mess with "group format" or "sort format". 

The variables between %'s should be simple enough to figure out. See your own playlist and try to make out what is the grouping based on and change it.

E.g. my case was albums with .cue files had their last tracks separated under another group header even though the album and the artist are the same, like

==Album/Artist 1==
Track 1
Track 2
Track 3
Track 4
==Album/Artist 1==
Track 5

and the durations for them showed 00:00 even though there was nothing wrong with the audio file. So I figured grouping based on duration was the cause, and with the original group format for "Artist/Album" grouping preset being 


I just deleted the %length%.

Late but hope this helps.

Is there any way to change the behavior of the jump-scrollbar? I'd rather it not cut to playing the first track in the section...
