Make sure you have the latest driver for your graphic card installed.
Updating you driver has resolved many issues related to the switch to version 4.3 from previous versions. :thumbup:

Yeah, I'm having the same problem and I ended up breaking the skin. Guess I will wait :(

Same here, not only is it laggy, but it is using up a lot of cpu/gpu when playing any form of audio. Drivers updated here too. Maybe the author should know about this?

Usually many visualizer skins have this kind of issues frequently. This is caused by the low Update value needed by these skins, to can properly work. If the latest driver is installed and you still get the skin not properly working, you can try to unload some skins if there are loaded more. Depends on loaded skins, other loaded software, which run in background, your CPU / RAM and a lot of other resources.
