This skin looks good but I think you should add some layout options for users to adjust to their liking.
Ex:
- On Playlist section, I would like to put Multi-functional Panel on the left and pull the Playlists tab back to the right.
- Adding Artwork right behind the playlist container (not the way we make it fit, just fill it from the center), or even blur or dim it to your liking (50% maybe) (The same thing you did with Now Playing section)
- Less bigger font (as some guys said that): Can we adjust the number you put in there, sir ? (Example text - 13px)

Your gem looks very promising, we are looking forward to your respond, mister.

Yes bro :) Totally agree with your wishlist :)

But It's important to tell our dear friend that please: Do not delete the Big Font, I mean add the customization of Font Size. For example I can put 20px Font and FXR-FIX can set 9px :) 

I only want this amazing skin be like Dopamine UI Player :) ...

linuxhint.com/wp-content/uploa…
windows-cdn.softpedia.com/scre…

Of course that AIMP is the best audio player, it has very wonderful features. But I really love the UI of Dopamine :)

Yes, mate. I mean we can manually adjust the font size in range (may be from 9px - 20px), it's up to you, man :)

Look like you are the big fan of Dopamine. I remember some guys on DA have done this kind of UI available for Foobar2000 which is very decent.

But IMO, I thought AIMP is way better than foobar. FB depends heavily on plugins & skins to make it acceptable. One the other side, it has much potential on customizing things which is a plus.
AIMP itself has wonderful features already built-in, as you said that & I totally agreed.
FX-Falcon's avatar
Exactly dear bro :)

AIMP is, in my opinion, the Best Audio Player for Windows :) ... No Bro, I'm not a Big Fan of Dopamine, I only like a lot its design :) I am a Big Fan of AIMP :) 

I tried FooBar in the past, and It's VERY ugly :( AIMP has features inside that makes the player so nice :D 

I only want the developer of AIMP, to make a better skin :( I really don't like the Default skin of AIMP.

And yes, Custom Font Size in range (1px to 100px) jajajaja :)

Bro, any news??? :) !!!!

Don't know where u are or where the fu**ing hell you live, but I should thank you for your amazing job !!!! Spend to much time looking the perfect skin for AIMP and discovering your work was like you already know how exactly I want this app looks like.... I can now delete itunes from my PC

Hey!, Thank you!, i'm glad you liked it.

Well, i created this skin based in what i always wanted AIMP to look like as a user, but never seen it in any skin, one that could truly represent how good this player is (at least to me), so i've done my own and that's the result :)
FX-Falcon's avatar
Heeey dear bro :) TheDeviantWizard :) !!!

I truly agree with LutinChris Wishlist :) !!!! I wish more updates and improvement come to the beautiful Alchemy :D !!!

Thanks :D

But, please, don't change the Fonts Size. Add a even smaller font to the options, but Do not remove the Big Font, please :(

As Fx-Falcon said previously : 

" PD: I registered to this place some months ago, only because of your skin :D (Big Grin) !!!! "

I don't know if it's normal but while listening a playist, it's like the player disappear (stay unavailable) for maybe the five first second and even if your try to use player UI it won't work. I mean AIMP is the active window on my desktop, I can see but can't touch it while songs fading. If there is another app behind AIMP that one will be active if you try to click with the mouse on AIMP, but if behind AIMP there is only the desktop user, the destop became active. While playing games like Battle Realms or street fighter VS Tekken... (even in full Window mode) when AIMP is active with your skin, during the first second of transition from a song to another (fading mode), the game doesn't respond (I mean you can't do any actions and you loose control on the game during those specific second).

As any fan of your skin here is my WISHLIST :
- a dedicated button for stop
- a dedicated button for repeat A-B
- a dedicated button for planification options
- a "like" button as on iTunes
- less bigger font, I mean I need it smaller
- Design refinements across the entire skin : at least better black color for overall skin player or an option to completly change background with a button to switche between those colors like in the original AIMP skin (Bliss 4k)
