Monstercat Visualizer for Rainmeter by MarcoPixel Monstercat Visualizer for Rainmeter by MarcoPixel
An realtime audio visualizer for Rainmeter similar to the ones used in the Monstercat videos.
Supports all major media players, including full Spotify (thanks to .raptor for the Spotify plugin) and Google Play Music Desktop Player (thanks to tjhrulz for his plugin) support.

Minimum Requirements:

Windows 7 or higher.
Rainmeter 4.0 (r2746) or higher.


- Live visualization of the audio output
- Customizable colors and fonts
- Genre-based colors (AIMP, CAD, iTunes, WMP and Winamp)
- Cover-based colors (All supported players)
- Support for all major media players
- Full Spotify (Desktop & Web Player) support
- Full Google Play Music Desktop Player & Web Player support
- Full Youtube, Soundcloud, and other web music players support
- Media controls & progress bar
- Settings skin for easier customization/configuration
- Hide skin when media player is not running



You need the newest version of Rainmeter Beta installed (4.0 (r2746) or newer)!

This skin is not supported on Windows XP and Vista!

Due to limitations of Rainmeter/the plugin used for the visualization the complete audio output of your system will be shown on the visualizer. For the best experience only play music. This is something I can’t fix.

Please report bugs and feature requests on Github, not in the comment section!

Cover art stopped changing for songs by the same artist for iTunes. Works normally if next song is a different artist for some reason. Refreshing doesn't seem to change anything. Not a huge issue, but thought I should comment to let you know.
Keep up the great work btw! Love using this visualizer.

any chance adding the little top that drops slowly while the graphs keep bumping them? dunno if you get me, but the same thing you can see in winamps viz.

nice fucking work on this monster. I find myself looking at the meter jumping along the music like a complete idiot for hours, before I notice lol

How do I place the song information wherever I want? It's either stuck to the left or right of the screen, and I can't move it wherever I want.
JULEZ140 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2017
The song information used to say the whole title of the song, but now it only says a few letters, followed by three dots.
Is there a way to make it say the whole song title again?

Rainmeter isn't a part of OBS, what you've seen is probably a recording of a screen with rainmeter running.

./so /i love ty for making it but /i was wondering if there is away to resize it also away to turn  off so it does not pick up the pc sounds or like skpye calls?

So I installed with default settings. The song/artist information works but the visual bars are not working. They don't move at all. What should I do?
Fyredrakkon Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2017  New Deviant
is there a plugin available for this to work with the Amazon music desktop client?
iHeartSkyBlu Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2017
Ahhh this is such a wonderful visualizer!! I was wondering how you would increase the sound sensitivity, though, because I want the bars to go just a bit higher than they do :) There are also times where it works and it doesn't, so if you could explain that too, that would be amazing! Thanks so much in advance!

Whenever i restart my computer, the cover skin appears and the song/artist skin appear with the letters "N/A". I have selected them to hide whenever the GPMDP is closed in the settings and it isn't set to load on boot up. How can I have these 2 skins hide on boot up?
tjhrulz Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2017
This may be an issue with my GPMDP plugin, I will investigate

Hello, i would like to know if there is a way to make it work exactly like the vizualizer in the realeases, the right settings or something, thanks

is there a way to decrease the size of the song name and artist?
Activia01 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2017  New Deviant
In "song information" there are the "right" and "left" .ini
How can i put the song information in the center of the screen?
I was looking at the .txt file but i'm not able to find the solution

P.S: great job man

Activia01 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2017  New Deviant
You have to check on rainmeter some setting like "movable" "click through"

Same Issue
shikomartins Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2017
Awesome job, man! How did you configured the Monstercat Visualizer to work with your Spotify? Here, I can't make any visualizer to do so. The Monstercat, for example, I have the music information like artist, song name, album art, progress bar. But, unfortunately, the bouncing bars don´t do nothing. Can you throw a light on this, please?
