This looks extremely cool, so minimalist, and the options are quite decent too!

Not gonna use AIMP before installing this skin.

Thanks and good job!

Hi :))) Can you send me a list of your songs?(songs related to anime)

Thank you:D

Scope10's avatar

Not quite sure how I would do that, I have a lot of songs and albums. The best way would probably be to check out my LastFM: and the playlists/likes on my SoundCloud: .

Haha thank you very much, it's more than enough!

could you please show me how to enable album art on the left side of the aimp player

Scope10's avatar

Not sure if you mean the album art in the Main (Top part of the player) or the Library (Bottom part of the player). I made an image showing how to do both: . I hope this helps.

Put your Ladient Options to this: .

Mine looks a bit different. I don't know why.

Sometimes, like with Seekbar, Tabs H and Tabs V, you can click on the label inside the Ladient Options and it will show a different rendition of the thing you are clicking. In your case, you are not using the Seekbar 2 (II). See .

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?
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.
Nevermind...I got the hotkey working. Thanks again for lovely skin.
Awesome skin!! Well Done!

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~

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.

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~

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.
