changing color of track

I was pleasantly surprised to see how the trans_volume set to a low opacity changes the color of the track as it scrolls. This seems like another interesting way to change the colors/effects.

have fun, xonenine :D

There are heaps of tricks like this that you can do :)

Doesn't mean you should use them all as some may make rather counter intuitive interfaces. I.e. if you use this, how will you tell the name of the song during quiet bits? ;)

Well, I should have been more specific. I used spotlights over an existing track to highlight the letters. I see what you mean tho', and if I.ve learned anything so far, it's that folks prefer smaller, cleaner skins. Will do! thanks, xonenine. :)

Ooh, now that sounds interesting! ;) Definitely keep in mind usability issues though. If people find it difficult to use your skin, then they won't! :(
