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


I've based this on one of my favourites in the included skins; Midnight by OrB.
It's been darkened a bit, a bitmap player added and a few other twists without, I hope, taking it to far from the original.

Round Midnight



Player controls (left-hand side) only show on highlight
Volume control is shooting star
Mute button is house silhouette

i'm amazed and impressed at how original your skins are - looks really good.
One thing to note is the track information doesnt display if the spectrum visualiser is not displayed

This must be the most state-of-the-art skin ever IMO. Great work!
One thing I'd like to note is that the reddish color you use for updated values on Tag Editor panel is blurry to my eyes. Your Wing-ated skin uses a similar color for that as well. I don't know why but the both colors make me dizzy when I try to read any updated values. Thanks, anyway!

I usually use one of the colours from the players spectrum visualiser. I'll check it out and see what I can do.
After all, I don't want to be responsible for you getting too dizzy and slipping off your chair  ;)

Maybe I should try that to be entitled to order customized skin sets  ::)

Hey ultravigo
It's showing the Now Playing panel (accessed from the navigation panel) and the playing tracks with track and thumbnail view

Lost a lot of the previous updates artwork in an HDD crash so I took the opportunity to re-create this skin.
For download, see Add-ons section or link updated in first post

I also blatantly pinched the excellent idea for the player controls projected by searchlights from redwing's "Darknight Blue" skin.  ;)
