I love it, but the track info (artist, title ecc.) font is super big on my side? ( Is there any way to fix it to make it smaller?
desertway Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2019  New Deviant
I'm new to AIMP and thrilled to find this skin. Only one question so far, I cannot find a way to access recording. There doesn't seem to be a button in this skin, or an entry in the AIMP menu. I tried setting up a hotkey, but it didn't work. Am I missing something? Thanks for a great skin.
desertway Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2019  New Deviant
Nevermind...I got the hotkey working. Thanks again for lovely skin.

Awesome skin!! Well Done!
Izunster Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2017
Is it possible to remove the horizontal scroll bar for the music library? Found it quite annoying how there just empty space between the albums cover arts and the scroll bar when you enlarge the window and when I tried to move the track list over to minimize the gap, it creates the horizontal scroll bar. Not sure if I explained it well or not but hope you can help. Thanks for the skin btw~
Scope10 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2017  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Yes, I see what you mean. It's an odd way of AIMP displaying that specific library view (Album grid). It has nothing to do with the skin really.

Basically, you need to uncheck all the header columns in that library view. To do this, you have to have "Table +" shown. Click the "Table" text under "Library" to switch between the normal and + options. This will toggle the header bar that shows the header columns. You then right click the header bar and uncheck all the column options (Like so: This way the library width isn't restricted to the specific width of the header columns. This won't affect any other library views, only the view you are currently looking at (album grid in your case).

I hope this helped.
Izunster Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2017
Thanks, more or less fixed the problem visually for me. Although it made me realized that the bottom two search bars of the music library and track list looks aligned but the color or outline differs so it feels off, not sure if its the skin or just AIMP. Not really a big of a deal but wondering if there's a solution. Thanks for everything~
Scope10 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2017  Hobbyist Interface Designer
It looks that way because of the way Windows renders the font. I double checked the skin to see if there are different colors used, but they are the exact same across all the quick search bars.

A way to fix this would be to adjust Cleartype so text gets rendered better on your screen. Another way would be by using a font rasterizer like MacType (It's what I use with the LCD profile).

MacType has created system instabilities for me in the past though. This can go from not showing any text anywhere, not showing subtitles in video players, to not being able to boot Windows. If you run into problems with anything, disable Mactype first and see if it fixes it. That's my warning about MacType.

Lately, the development of MacType has been picking up and I haven't had any major issues with the latest versions, so I guess it's pretty safe to use now. Only thing I had to do lately is disabling Mactype for my video player as it wouldn't show the subtitles. This depends on your video player and subtitle renderer, so your mileage may vary.

Awesome.Thank you!
ayot79 Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2017
Awesome skin but my explorer.exe is going crazy after changing skin settings. Invisible context menus, ghosting, anything that involves right click mouse button creates all kinds of weird behavior.
To fix it I need to log out or restart the system.
This issue was present also in previous Ladient skin versions. Maybe it's a Aimp thing?
I'm using Windows 10 1709 (Fall Creators Update).
Scope10 Featured By Owner Edited Oct 27, 2017  Hobbyist Interface Designer
It's not an AIMP thing as AIMP has no effect on your system. It's a Penumbra 10 and/or theme patcher problem. I assume you are using Penumbra 10, correct?

The problem about the weird right-click behavior is known, but I can't figure out what is causing it. Have you had similar problems with other third party Windows themes?

For the new Fall Creators Update, I will rebase Penumbra 10 on the newest aero theme and hope that it will fix the problem.

Edit: You don't have to log out or restart your system to fix the problem. You can just switch back to the Windows theme and back to Penumbra 10 to (temporarily) fix the problem.

It seems that the download link is broken. Could you perhaps reupload it? I love your work, by the way!
Scope10 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2017  Hobbyist Interface Designer
DeviantArt is the one that hosts the files and occasionally people have problems with the download. If it doesn't work at the moment, try again later. It works fine for me right now.

Love this theme! But how did you get it to look like the on the far left? Mine doesnt have the option to show album art in the playlist. thnks!
Scope10 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2017  Hobbyist Interface Designer
It's one of the three library views. To cycle between the different views, click the button in the bottom right of the library table. (

Keep in mind that "Library", "Table" and "Bottom Bar" need to be active. (

thansk you very much! Keep up with the good work.

mataiuls Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2017
Hi, great skin! And one question: is there a way to change the highlight colors of the skin? I would want to change the "red" to "blue" or something along these line.
Thanks for the skin!
Scope10 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2017  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Yes, there is. Click on the player, press CTRL + P, click on "Skin" (under "Interface") and change the skin hue and saturation sliders under the skin selection element. (

El-Buhdai Featured By Owner Edited Apr 8, 2017
I've gone through at least 15 - 20 + skins trying to find the one that works for me. For each one, there was some dealbreaker for me, because I'm very picky when it comes to customization. This is the only skin that satisfies my need for the perfect blend of beauty, functionality, and customization. I also love how the customization is so powerful that you can make your skin just like many of the other skins for AIMP! :) I just have one problem. While messing around with my settings, my "Main" somehow got locked so I can't change it back to Big Player, which I really like. Can you help me fix that? Some of the settings and options are unclear in this skin and it has led to a lot of confusion as I figure it out and get my setup down.
Scope10 Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2017  Hobbyist Interface Designer
The Main section gets locked when you enable the Library section. To unlock it, simply disable the Library section. The same is true the other way around. If you Enable the Big Album mode, the Library gets locked.

I made the skin this way because the Big Album mode will limit the width of the player to 400 pixels, which is not the width you would like to use the library with. The width restriction on the Big Album mode is to prevent the elements (like the album art and spectrum) from stretching and making that part of the skin look broken. It's simply not designed to work with more than 400 horizontal pixels.

I agree that not all the buttons are clear on what they do, but I feel like experimenting with it is part of the beauty of it. I could write a bunch of documentation on it, but I don't think many people would read it.

What I have already done so far is highlighting buttons/sections when you hover over the corresponding element in the player. For example, if you hover over the album in the Main section, it will highlight the Album and Shape button in the Ladient Option window. This is to show the user which button(s) effect which element in the player. I did notice that not every active element has this highlight, so I will fix this in the next update.

What I can also do in the next update is making sure that every button has a hint text. This is the text that will show when you hover over a certain element or button for a couple of seconds. I hope that these small bits of text will help the user in understanding what all the buttons and options do. Do you think these above-mentioned changes will resolve your confusion towards certain settings and options?
El-Buhdai Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2017
Thanks! I figured out why certain things were locked on the same day I wrote this question, and I discovered the functions of most of the buttons as well. Hint text would be nice though, just because I still didn't figure out a few of them. The changes you proposed would be great! Thanks again for the reply, and the skin is beautiful!

Nice one. Thanks.

1 bug - when you switch from "Big Album" to regular mode, it automatically turns on Album bg if it was disabled in this mode before.
Scope10 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2017  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Thanks for reporting this bug.

I fixed the problem and uploaded the new version (2.3.1).

If you find any other problems or have a good suggestion, feel free to tell me.

This is so far the best Aimp theme for me. Thank you!
I'd like to suggest one change for the next update. When I minimize Aimp, I'm not able to open it again by double-clicking on minimized mini window of Aimp (to double-click somewhere of all the area of minimized aimp). This can help people to easier/quick open it.
Scope10 Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I'm glad you enjoy it.

You can already double click the tray window to restore to the normal window. The area in which you can double click is only limited, see:
The dotted area is where you can double click to restore. I'm not sure why it's only that area, but I'll try to completely fix it in the next update.

Very nice and modern skin. 1000 x thanks.
Ya-Grisha Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2016
Доброго здравия!
Хорошая работа, отдельная благодарность за открытый проект.
В обложке есть несколько недостатков:
1. Невозможно сменить вкладку плагина в фонотеке, из за отсутствия (clfMusicLibraryDataSource TASETabContro)l.
2. Невозможно свернуть программу в трей, кликом ПКМ по кнопке сворачивания (AIMPMainForm, Minimize).
3. LadientOptionsWindow - не задано DisplayName.

Good health!
Good work, special thanks for the open source project.
The cover has a few drawbacks:
1. You can not change the plug-in tab in the audio library, from the lack of (clfMusicLibraryDataSource TASETabContro) l.
2. It is impossible to minimize the program to the system tray, click on the button folding RMB (AIMPMainForm, Minimize).
3. LadientOptionsWindow - not set DisplayName.
Scope10 Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
1. This is true. I removed the clfMusicLibraryDataSource bar because it only said "Local files" This was a waste of space for me, since I didn't know what it was even used for. Since you mention that it does have a functional use, I will add it in the next update as a Library toggle.
2. There are currently two ways to minimize the player. One way is to press 'Tray' in the Menu bar. The other way is to press the minimize button in the Titlebar (when Buttons is enabled).
3. I have no idea what you mean by this. Could you elaborate on it?
SinB Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2016
Great skin, how do you get it to look like the window in the bottom right of your preview though?
Scope10 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
In order to make your AIMP window look like that, you need to change your Ladient Options to this:

Is it possible to get album art in the playlist view a la…? I've tried adding it in the skin editor but can't figure out how to add anything other than the album art of the currently playing song.
Scope10 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
The playlist doesn't have a view like that, but the library does. This is the closest you can get at the moment:
The problem with the library view is that the customization of the element in the skin editor is pretty limited at the moment. Another problem is that it doesn't act as a playlist, so if you play a song it doesn't actually highlight the current playing song. It just makes a new playlist and plays your library music from there.

Good Job
Thank you

+ question:
possible to create plugin for AIMP3 a visualization oscilograma of the track ?
Scope10 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I'm not sure if it's possible to create an oscillogram visualization since I'm not known with the AIMP plugin API. The closest thing you can get right now is the built-in waveform seekbar in AIMP, which is included in Ladient 2.

I really love it,but why this skin use so much cpu compare with the others,can you fix it?
Scope10 Featured By Owner Edited Jun 10, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I have noticed this before, but I couldn't find a fix for it. Looking further into it, it seems like the Playlist and Library Element are the problem. If you only show the Main and Controls,  the CPU usage should be normal.

I have tried multiple things to check if I could get the CPU usage down, but the only way seems to be to just disable/hide the actual element. Other skins don't seem to have this problem however. Even if I copy and paste the properties over from others skins, the problem still persists.

The only way that I can think of, that might fix the problem, is for me to remake the skin using a clean base.

EDIT: I have pinpointed the problem even further. It has to do with the docking site and the way windows/frames attach to each other.

A temporary fix you can do by yourself is detaching the Playlistframe from the Main. To do this, enable Bottom Bar under Playlist and drag the bar away from the player until it shows a blue box. The playlist and main windows are now separate, somehow fixing the CPU usage problem. The only drawback you have now is that you have to manually resize each windows, instead of just one. You can also dock the Playlistframe again by dragging it back under the Main.

Thanks for all your work,I make a skin for selfuse base on your project recently,seems delete some element is the only way.
