Monstercat Visualizer for Rainmeter by MarcoPixel Monstercat Visualizer for Rainmeter by MarcoPixel
An realtime audio visualizer for Rainmeter similar to the ones used in the Monstercat videos.
Supports all major media players, including full Spotify (thanks to .raptor for the Spotify plugin) and Google Play Music Desktop Player (thanks to tjhrulz for his plugin) support.

Minimum Requirements:

Windows 7 or higher.
Rainmeter 4.2 Beta (r3074) 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 Beta installed (4.2 (r3074) 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!

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 ;)

Is there a way for the audio spectrum to only detect bass sounds? Because the bar detects the high-pitched sounds from the middle to the right and from the center to the left the bass sounds but I want the entire bar to detect only the bass sounds, is there any way to do it?

Your shortened link is really bad form. Malwarebytes went bonkers over it. For shame, neighbor.

Hello i just installed this visualizer  and i got this problem.
I have one headphone connected via USB, and a pair of speaker's connected on my mobo sound card.
but the visualizer only detect my headphones...
any tip to solve my problem?
lightco Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2018
Hello I installed Rainmeter and Monstercat Visualizer (Latest version)

About the standard sound card, I get no indication.
Connect a USB sound card or USB speaker, it works
The change in the settings from Rainmeter or 
Visualizer brings no improvement.

(Newbie) How can I get a background, with some animation or just an automatic dynamic plain color from the album art? I love the skin but it feels a little weird having it on top of the icons and the wallpaper on the desktop.
CrimsonBloodfang Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2018
cant use it or open it. it crashes rainmeter for me when i used the latest final release of rainmeter. i have to delete its folder from the skins just to fix the crashes of rainmeter.

In Apple Music, it only seems to show album artwork for music downloaded locally. If I am streaming a song it doesn't show the artwork.
GlucoseGarbage Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2018
how do i install? I got the zip but what do i do after?
JamesHurst101 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2018
Love this one!

Unfortunately I can't seem to get things to line up properly.

Since the script is automatically making the artist and song info box the same width as the visualizer, I'm unable to have the cover to the left of it with the visualizer spanning the width of the cover + info, like in the screenshot. Instead, with the cover lined up with the left of the visualizer, the song info sticks out to the right past the visualizer, when placed to the right of the cover.

Install Spicetify, open it and click Backup. Then, in the Extension section, go to 2 pages and activate the WebNowPlaying Companion, then click Apply and Restart. In monstercat open the settings, go to the media players section and activate WebNowPlaying.

how to install pls help (newbie)
gamingbunny4 Featured By Owner Edited Aug 23, 2018
just install rainmeter and winrar (if you don't already have it) open it and extract where ever you want. double click the file and hit install and then follow the pop ups on your screen unload all the skins when you installed rainmeter just right click.

Yeah for some reason the Song title, artist name, and the cover isnt working for me. Any help?
Brett001 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2018
The song information not working (N/A) with the new Spotify version. 
gamingbunny4 Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2018
spotify is very unstable for now. use another media player.
Kinkicho Featured By Owner Edited Jul 25, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
the spotify plugin got changed and isnt going to update anymore…
try this program instead
Brett001 Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2018
Unfortunately, that does not work either. :( 
Kinkicho Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
it doesnt for me either. when i wrote it, i was about to try it by myself
i think this skin needs some updates maybe, or the program
but for now, i cant find any other solution
JZPotter Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2018
According to my anti-virus/malware, only this comes up as a virus that it immediately removed. None of my other skins/visualizers came up like that. So, what's up with that?
gamingbunny4 Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2018
this is not a virus had this on my pc for a long time turn off your anti virus when installing
