A real time audio visualizer for Rainmeter similar to the ones used in the Monstercat videos.
Supports all major media players, including full SpotifyGoogle Play Music Desktop Player and Chrome/Firefox webplayersupport (thanks to tjhrulz and khanhas) for the amazing plugins used in this skin).

Minimum Requirements:

Windows 7 or higher.
Rainmeter 4.3 (r3298) or higher.


- 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 support
- Media controls & progress bar
- Settings skin for easier customization/configuration
- Hide skin when media player is not running



You need the newest version of Rainmeter installed (Rainmeter 4.3 (r3298) or newer)!

This skin is not supported on Windows XP and Vista!

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.

Please report bugs and feature requests on Github, not in the comment section!

Is there a way to remove "N/A" when no song playing?
Also, is there a way to remove the bottom of the bars so that they're completely gone when no sound is playing?

If you open the variables file, look for "NoArtistNameText". You can delete the N/A or put custom text.

I can't change it either. It may be due to my dated version, but if you have issues, as the post said, ""Please report bugs and feature requests on Github, not in the comment section!"

Love it. Any plans on adding color gradients or angle skew to the customization settings in the future?

nice visualizer but im no friend of turning "network.websocket.allowInsecureFromHTTPS" to "true"
Maybe you can set the soundcloud windows app (i know it´s a beta) to supported players ;)
