Monstercat Visualizer for Spotify 1.4 [FIXED BUGS] by Quakenxt Monstercat Visualizer for Spotify 1.4 [FIXED BUGS] by Quakenxt

Download button is on the right side next to the picture -->


I modified MarcoPixel 's skin and I added spotify support.


- Changeable colors & fonts
- Configurable skin size
- Media controls
- Toggle to enable/disable track information/cover
- Support for Spotify

- Release Notes -

- You need the newest Rainmeter beta which you can find on

- After install please right-click on any part of the visualizer and then press "Open Variables" in the menu. From there you can change everything from the skin.

Due to an limitation of the plugin (AudioLevel, for the visualization) the complete audio output of your system will be shown on the visualizer. For the best experience only play music.

- Fixes -

Problem: The visualizer cuts off at the top.
Fix: Go to the volume mixer (Image) and lower the volume of Rainmeter.

Spotify Support - Quakenxt

Those experiencing problems (like me) can do the following in this order:
1) Download Rainmeter 4 beta from the Rainmeter site
2) Download the Monstercat Visualizer from this page you're reading this comment on. As of this writing, version 1.4
3) Install Rainmeter
4) Install the Monstercat plugin
5) Download the Spotify Rainmeter plugin from Rainmeter Forum thread 17077 (sorry, can't hotlink in this post - note the Reddit rainmeter subforum has a link to the spotifyplugin.dll as well)
6) Install the Spotify Rainmeter plugin. Accept defaults to overwrite the current plugin

This gets the controls and media preview working. Before steps 5 and 6, playback controls and album art did not work

Works fine but the track info won't show up :(

Good improvement upon Spotify support for the Visualizer! Media controls doesn't seem to work for me, however. Is there anyway I can add in placeholder text for the track info to display when Spotify is not playing?
MudkipBaws Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2016
Album art doesn't show up, and clicking to pause or switch songs crashes rainmeter. Using the latest spotify version.
Customs-n-Randomness Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2016  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Awesome skin. However, the album art doesn't show up. Everything else works fine, but there is simply no album art image.
swndlr Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2015
Im having the same issues as the people below, it just stopped working all of the sudden. If I hit the play / pause / back buttons, Rainmeter crashes. There is no album artwork and no song information either.
:( Pls fix
TiniestCosine65 Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2015
I'm also having trouble using this skin. When I finally got it to load it didn't show album artwork, title, artist, album, or time left on the song. The only thing that worked was the visualizer and it capped out if I had my volume up. When I tried to use the controls, it crashes like others have said. I am wanting to use this with my Spotify because its the nicest skin Ive found, but I cant get either this version or the 1.3 version to work. Please help, really want to use your skin.

Rainmeter crashes on launch after installing the latest Spotify update :(
zangetsu4321 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2015
I have beta 3.3 and for spotify it is not displaying the artist or song name. What do I do?
SandiTotor Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2015  Student General Artist
Same here...
martino96 Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2015
How do you customise the colour of the EQ bars? When I go to 'Edit skin' and I modify the number it stays the same light blue tone and simply changes its transparency!
chpstckdrpkck9 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2015
install this…
then revert back and the controls will work
scorpionsilver5 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2015
Please fix the media controls
Bliqo Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015
Rainmeter shuts down when I use the media controls
nvhgamer Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist

jabapo Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2015
Is there anyway to remove the equalizer, and just to have the album art, artist, and the title?
Mbrazier95 Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2015
Is there a way to change the bar length currently?
alohasnackbar69 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2015
also the bars dont change colour with genre
alohasnackbar69 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2015
hi, awesome skin! the controls dont work though - ie pause/play and the forward and back with the new version of spotify and causes a rainmeter crash.

any update coming up?
shadow3264 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2015
Ok here is a fix: get this visualizer.ini and edit in your player of choice. Put it inside the Monstercat skin folder.

Is there a way to get rid of the visualiser? I just prefer my other one which takes up the whole screen.
JonnyScarborough Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2015  Hobbyist Filmographer
Edit the skin and delete out the following sections.

; Measure AudioLevel - spectrum input
; Measure AudioLevel - spectrum bars

Highly recommend backing up before you do this so  you can revert any changes.
CurveYT Featured By Owner May 29, 2015
Is it possible to change the colours of the bars and if so how? Thanks.
WizardOfOruz Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2015
Right click the skin, Open Variables, Style settings, change colour to what you want, AKA Color=57,155,190
JWW123 Featured By Owner May 27, 2015
Could you make it that the color of the bars change there color based on the album art. That would be awesome.
ASVF Featured By Owner May 1, 2015
What program do I run it with??
Dimuthu93 Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2015  Student General Artist
Is it not supported for windows vista :(
chrishand Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2015
Is there a way of disabling the album cover art?

I am having the same problem as other users, Rainmeter crashes when I touch the music controls (previous, play, next).  

You stated that we should be using the beta Rainmeter, but I dont see 3.3 available yet on their site; I suppose 3.2 was beta when this was made perhaps?

Some additional edits I did to mine:
   -Scaled to 0.4, so it's a comfortable small size in the lower middle of my screen
   -Color scheme Color=0,126,231
      ^Matches my blue theme.
   -Changed font sizes (Large[Artist]: 68, Small[Track]: 36)
   -Changed X variable for track info within app to 275, so the track appears indented under the artist name.  

Looks very nice, and MAJOR kudos on developing this app Quake!!!
Bougiest Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2015
Yes! This app does look super nice and I love everything about it except the media control issues, crashes rainmeter every time. Any fixes?
Askesejr Featured By Owner Edited Mar 29, 2015
for some reason it crashes when i try to play or skip a song, got any  fixes?
-Edit, nevermid fixes it
castupdemon Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2015
Can you let us know what you did to fix it? It's kind of shitty to just say you fixed it and leave the rest of us hanging like that.
tehsteg Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2015
What did you do to fix it?
MSIOutpout Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2015  Student General Artist
How can I change the color so that they shuffle or something like this?
Mooshroommanman Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Hello. It seems I have been having issues out of obtaining Track information beside the album art. Do you know what could be the problem? Thanks!
Quakenxt Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Just updated I fixed it
JimmyBabs3 Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2015
I can't get the title of the song and the artist name to show up, how do you do this?
Quakenxt Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2015  Student Digital Artist
I just fixed the bug you shoud download the new version
elephanturd Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015
Does this work if I'm using the browser player spotify?
Quakenxt Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2015  Student Digital Artist
I don't think this would work. But I didn't tested with the browser.
So let me know.
