Tips & Tricks:

For best results I recommend these settings...

Enable skin window borders.
Enable spectrum visualisation.
Enable toolbar icon color matching.
Disable fit artwork to panel size.
Display player controls in top pane.
Show menu in default location.

The font I use is "Linux Libertine".

Looks fantastic, thanks!

Will you be skinning the Mini Player's modern layout?

All it really needs is things to be shrunken
Album art on itunes is much smaller so is the header
Thanks

mini player doesn't look different than the above picture
can you update track information tab?

I'm still thinking about making small changes to the interface.

Sorry but your post is confusing. What do you mean by "things need to be shunken", can you be more specific?
Album artwork has nothing to do with skins, that is a setting you can change in MusicBee.
The mini player was altered slightly to more resemble iTunes, but I can only edit the colors.
What about the track info tab needs to be updated?

from the rest of your message I assume there's nothing you can do about the things I was mentioning, sorry.
Everything in itunes 12's ui is much smaller.
it's also dumb, to see the controls in mini player it cuts off the song's name even though the icons are lower than the songs name text

The icons are a nice touch, thanks!

Quick question: the track details in the now playing panel seems to be set to some grey color. I've tried to change it in MB's settings to no avail. Is it something you set in your skin? It seems I'm not having the problem with other skins. Thanks.

I'm not sure what you're referring to.
Edit: Oh ok now I understand.

I'd guess that vpsaxman is referring to the pale grey text in the RH panel (Track Details) - green square

also:
toolbar icon is hard to see
no AutoDJ icon
