Original Concept: th-guenther [link]
Wallpaper: [link]

I have permission from th-guenther to post this

So I have to say I am a bit overwhelmed from all the love and it really helps me to make this better than when I started it. Not much I can do except say thanx to everyone for viewing and downloading.

I want everyone to know I really am trying to get to all of your request but with school now starting and with a new job on the way things have been a bit hectic. But I am going to continue to work on this just not as much as I wish I could.

So far I do have an ecoute theme working, just a couple of bugs I need to work out.
Still working out a way to display the title better.
Then after that I hope to start working on a new bowtie theme.

So once again thanx!

- Fixed the weird gap that would occur if the text got to a certain length
- Per request from th-guenther I added one with no album artwork

- Now fits on the right of the screen, with or with artwork

- Making it fit on the right side of the screen
- Hovering over it will make title text scroll
- Track timer? Ratings? Play controls? Not sure but if you have any suggestions post a comment or send a note

I've been using this since forever! But there is an updated version of this, which supports Retina display.

New version here:…

hi im using your theme for a while and i think is awesome, thanks both of you for your work... 

I have a doubt cause everytime i put the cursor on theme and i used 2 fingers to go down o up i can turn the volumen down and up ! it's really weird ! maybe you can add motion to left and right to go back a song or next one... it'll great

I've made my own centred version and i would like to put it up here on DeviantART, of course with full credit.
I would like to know if it is possible?

So... how's the Ecoute version coming along? ;)
sgraves Featured By Owner May 4, 2013
Yep, would love some controls. Would make this infinitely more useful.
kuurozaki Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2013
any update for simple player control?
thijswal Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013
Amazing. Just what I need.

Thanks ;)
million7 Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012
good theme, but for some reason it doesn't want to show on screen. any help?
acidKissu Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Hobbyist
Random question, but how do drag the Bowtie theme around on the desktop? I remember I did it often..
acidKissu Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Hobbyist
nevermind. I just locked my position.

It looks really nice.
limprevisible Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2012
Please update for Retina Graphics.
J4CK50N Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012
Indeed, this would be great!
itsAerosol Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2012
And yes, controls when you hover over it would be great! Or one click is play/pause, two clicks is next, and three clicks is previous. That's on other bowtie themes.
itsAerosol Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2012
It looks really nice man.

Looks great, I modled my desktop background around it: [link]

Upside down version?

Gotta say I love what you've done with this :)
iMacThere4iAm Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2012
I wanted an Ecoute version so I ported it myself. I haven't noticed any bugs, but I make no promises. [link]
hachepunto Featured By Owner May 20, 2012
:wow: Until now I see your reply MacThere4iAm. Right now I'm using your Ecoute version, is perfect. I only had a single problem. It is very difficult to move the window position, it moves erratically. I had to do is take it and not release it until it moved to the place I wanted. Otherwise it is perfect. :hooray:

Thank you! :tighthug:

PS: Mac OS X 10.7.4 Lion, Ecoute v3.0.4
hachepunto Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2011
Just want to say thanks. So... Thanks! :hug:
(I also want a version for Ecoute without it is useless...)
RedSquirrelBrown Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2011
Is there anyway to make a version hat has a max width and scrolling text? Or is there a way to edit the skin so it does this myself?

really like the skin!
HiggyB Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2011  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Excellent work, thanks for continuing the original effort like this! :+fav:

sexiest bowtie theme ever.
dinnu504 Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2011
Beautiful... So Minimalistic...
doubles87 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011
I can't seem to make it stay to the left, skins only work when floating to the right.

Controls would be wicked
iSamV2 Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011
I'd love it if it had controls.
descuidado Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I LOve it!
peppy Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2011
Thanks for this skin. I ran into a few issues so took the liberty of making some minor changes. Feel free to incorporate them as you see fit :).

- Changed the artist style to use a gray colour rather than opacity to avoid text sub-pixel aa rendering issues.
- Force the skin to the bottom-left corner of the screen on each trackUpdate(). I use multiple monitor setups and this saves a huge amount of pain when switching between them.

Wow, nice changes! :)

I think it would be really useful and hopefully not disruptive to the simplicity if you made a little pie/wheel to show how much of the song is left. You could put it either in place of the musical note or you could make the musical note smaller and put the pie behind it in the same gray color that the font of the artist is written in. If you make the note smaller you might want to use a single quarter note instead of that double thing.
ZeroIYAD Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2011
thank u ..

can u make a version with the tail of the bar directed upward ?

i wanna place it @ the top of my screen :)
ZeroIYAD Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2011

zhenhua520 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011

Witt10 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011
Is there a way to make Bowtie stay in its place when using Expose?
Lock Position doesn't change anything.
derek-420 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011
Love this theme, the minimalism is perfect.
thorlac75 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011
It would be soooooo great if this theme would be a Growl theme too! :)
mrjumbo86 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2011
now one of my favorite skins for bowtie! thx for sharing :D
sinder112 Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2011
This would make an AMAZING growl theme too! Any chance you could port it to growl as well?
beautifulblood Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Never thought about it but I could look into it
xmacvicar Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2011   Photographer
