ATTENTION!
This skin has been updated for MusicBee 3 and later.
Compatibility with version 2.5 or earlier is not guaranteed.

And, like all good cookers, there is a choice of gas or electric.

  • skin reworked to emphasize the stainless steel and black glass panels look;
  • playerbar reworked to include larger volume bar;
  • themed No Artwork and Unknown Artist images updated;
  • icons updated for high DPI screens.

July 3, 2016:
  • Major skin re-build;
  • MusicBee 3.0 changes incorporated;
  • main panel only in 'Stainless Steel' grey;
  • 'No Artwork', 'Unknown Artist' and splashscreen images optimised for smaller file size;
  • icons updated.

May 8, 2014:
  • small change to background colour to better match stainless steel look
  • themed Unknown Artist & No Artwork images added
  • icon set updated
  • support of MBv2.3 customisation changes added

i really like what you have done and its very original. I will look to provide button icon overrides for the location bar (new tab, brows back/forward, refresh etc) in the next version

Drive crash and only partial back-up meant the loss of most of the original bitmap images.
Skin now rebuilt and updated for MB3.0

Lovely skin, thank you.

In your second image, the one with the album covers, one can see the name of the band clearly but not the corresponding name under it. It is too faint. I seem to have the same problem. The artist is clearly shown but the album name is very light. How do I bold it as well?

Thanks.

With my pic, the album count colour is auto-generated by MB.
Since you are saying your son fixed it, I assume you are using a different sorting and was able to use the custom font settings in the Customise Panel... dialogue.

Glad you were able to sort it out and the compliment on the skin :)
