Please, give me feedback! It's really valuable and rewarding (even if it's a critique!) and will really help me improve the skin. I hope you guys enjoy it! :)

This is a neat looking set of skins and you might like to consider the following when finalising them:

1) AccurateText=1 and TransitionUpdate=10 both belong in the [Rainmeter] section rather than in the meters.

2) Rather than putting Update=1000000000 in the [Rainmeter] section of the Synkro³ and background skins you can just put Update=-1 in the [Background] and [Synkro³] meters.

3) I'm not sure why you need Update=100 in the [Rainmeter] sections of the Music Player and Time skins.

4) I'd be tempted to have [Measure.Time.Hours.Main] reporting the users time wherever they are by not including the line TimeZone=0.

Sure, I didn't really know you could do that. I'll edit it right away

Not sure why I did that... lol
Thanks for commenting

I found the time often desyncing with Update=1000. The music player update was probably by mistake. I'll test them out again at 1000 and see what happens.

It's the GMT clock. I'll probably add a local one though, now that you've brought it up.

with update = 1000 the meter will be at most 999 ms out of sync, e.g. the player is at 2:00 and the meter updates to 2:00 and then right after the player updates to 2:01. with an update of 100 it'll be at most 99 ms out of sync, but at a cost of ~10x the computing time

Now the good news.
I lied, there isn't any good news...

Well, yeah. That was... quite obvious, but thanks for the helpful answer anyways! :)
