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!

How to have 2 players at once ie. Winamp for MP3's and Spotify?

RadarDash's avatar Hey man, made a 3rd tutorial update if you're interested in linking it somewhere! I even had them come to this page first instead of directly to your github to get them profile views :)

It works, I have it running right now.

Open PowerShell


"Invoke-WebRequest "https: //raw. githubusercontent. com/khanhas/spicetify-cli/master/install.ps1" | Invoke-Expression"

Wait for it to finish downloading.


"spicetify" (runs it)

"spicetify backup apply enable-devtool" (backup)

" spicetify restore" (restore to original Spotify)

Should work after that.

i'm getting this error: error Cannot detect Spotify "prefs" file location. Please manually set "prefs_path" in config.ini

You must use the executable version of spotify, not the application from the windows store. Here is the link:

The dynamic album color doesn't work, for all song it's white. Any suggestion? I use the web player with spicetify. Thanks

How do I make it so that it only picks up the lower frequencies like base and stuff?

How can I make the album cover and the song info (text) scale on their own? I either get the text to be very big or the album cover is really small. Pls help!

So everything had been working fine but in the last week the song information is not showing up anymore. The visualiser will still play when spotify is playing but the song information is N/A.

I reinstalled rainmeter, the skin and the whole instructions as above but it still says N/A, any idea why?

Same here, but with the cover. The name is showing up (Spotify web app)

You hit the wrong one then; downloaded the same thing and didn't get a virus.
