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.

Nice Work !

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.
alexalex22 Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2016
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.
NeutralZeroZx Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Extremely disappointed the white version was removed :(

Time to find another white skin...
Ronirx Featured By Owner Edited Jul 19, 2016
Simply Awesome. Great work. Please theme tray icons in the next update. Thank you :)

I will.

lylrest Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2016
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.
lylrest Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2016
Thanks for all your work,I make a skin for selfuse base on your project recently,seems delete some element is the only way.
Jamshiddin Featured By Owner May 25, 2016
who knows how to download skins for aimp 4? If somebody knows please ...
Scope10 Featured By Owner May 25, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
There is a download button on the right side of the page next to the preview image.
EmZvr Featured By Owner May 7, 2016
I have a problem with the positioning of the player. I thought it was something related to AIMP but with the default skin it's not reproducible. I like to keep AIMP at the bottom right of the screen but everytime I restart the player it is positioned at the middle right of the screen. Any ideas what is causing the issue?
EmZvr Featured By Owner May 9, 2016
Thank you. Works perfectly now
Scope10 Featured By Owner May 8, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I see what you mean. It only happens if the playlist and library is hidden. This is because the window containing the two is still active if you hide the elements within. I will add a button or something in the next update so you can hide the entire window.

For now, you can disable the entire window by pressing Ctrl + m or by unchecking the Playlist/Audio Library in the context menu when you press "Menu" on the menubar.
dander2 Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2016
great skin indeed
Bondagerisimo Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2016
Great skin!
but is there any way to access the mini-player options?
because i cant get it to display the artist, thanks!
Scope10 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
The mini-player (Tray mode) doesn't have separate options. It's not displaying any artist because your file probably isn't tagged with an artist name.

Select the song and press F4. It will show a window with the file information. Check if the file contains any artist name. If it doesn't, you will have to either add the tags to the file yourself, or find a file that contains the proper tags.
Bondagerisimo Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2016
It does have an artist in both of the tabs!
Scope10 Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
That's odd. Maybe you disabled the "Track Info" under "Main" in the Ladient Options window. If toggling that still didn't fix it, could you send me a screenshot showing your player, tags and the Ladient Options window?
Bondagerisimo Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2016
I know what it was, it was a problem with the newest AIMP version (before i updated heh), they even put that some skins loaded incorrectly and that they fixed it in the newest

Damianoseczek Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2016
Great work.

One question: could you make this feature of hiding player to the left side of screen? Now when I'm leaving AIMP window, AIMP is getting lower opacity.
Scope10 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I'm not sure I understand your question. Could you clarify it?
Damianoseczek Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2016
When I was using Ladient on AIMP 3.6, there was an feature of hiding player to the left side of screen. When I had AIMP turned on and clicked on my desktop, AIMP "slided" to the left.

Now, when I've updated AIMP to 4.0 and Ladient to V2.1, I see that this feature is not working/doesn't exists (I think it was "docking" feature in Ladient for 3.6).
Scope10 Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
The feature still exists and is still there.
Just right click the main (top part of the player) Dock > to left screen side. Another way is to just drag the player to any side of your screen until you see a blue outline. After that it should dock to the side.
Damianoseczek Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2016
Oh, thank you. I didn't know about that :P
Observadordev Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2016
Very nice skin
ayot79 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2016
Looks awesome. Just one question: how to switch to bigger mini player? By clicking twice it switches to a window where I can see pause button only. Id like to have a player that looks like the middle version on the right in the preview picture.
Scope10 Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Just set your Ladient options like this . The player you are referring to is just one of the many ways to you can make your player look by changing the options in the Ladient options window.

I can't get it to keep it's settings per se. I make it big album but it doesn't keep it in big album.
Edit: nvm  there's a conflict with hamealon.
Scope10 Featured By Owner Edited Jan 23, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I had hamealon installed as well, so I had the same problem. I guess you can't use it until the author updates the plug-in with a fix.
sekula27 Featured By Owner Edited Jan 24, 2016
I don't use hamealon plugin and settings for big album are not saving, it reverts every time I start aimp.
Scope10 Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I looked further into it and found out that a custom provider within the skin forced the player into the normal main layout. After I removed it, everything still worked like intended and the big album mode stayed after restarting AIMP.

I will release a small update next week with the fix and some other small changes to the skin.
Sakagari Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2015
