Both are available at the "Banks & Patches" page for Poly-Ana here at KVR:

I just installed the bigger version as described there and it seems to work properly here in Windows 10 64-bit.
The skin uses my own design (also for the knobs) and arangement of the controls. It is called "Flatland" as it is a 2D skin without 3D effects.
There was a lot of trouble and/or bashing in that old thread where people including me posted and discussed their skins and finally it was closed (actually there semed to be more than one that was closed). Later it was forbidden to discuss Poly-Ana further at KVR (as was mentioend earlier here).
I really do not want to be involved in such discussions and/or bashing again. Either you want to try and/or use my skin or not. Really doesn't matter for me. Personally i still prefer using my own skin when using Poly-Ana.
It is more likely tat this was my last post on this topic for a while...
I just downloaded this and am willing to give it a try but I have absolutely no idea how to change the skins for this thing. I don't see any menu option on the synth that says load skin or anything like that.
So how exactly do I change it to this skin?
You have to create a specific folder and copythe "skins" folde theer. This was also descrubed at the download:
This a skin for Poly-Ana with a flat/2D design (no 3D elements except maybe the keyboard when a note is played).
The ZIP file includes two folders with the skin at 2 different resolutions (1512x801 and 1200x636). For the bigger version a corresponding display should be used (e.g. Full HD = 1920 x 1080). The skin includes a custom mod source selection wheel but works best with the drop-down menus.
The folder for the 2 different versions in the ZIP file include sub-folders with the "skin" folder and a folder with the Knob files (created in JKnobman).
The skin folder at 64-bit Windows should be copied to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Admiral Quality\Poly-Ana
At 32-bit Windows it should be copied to: C:\Program Files\Admiral Quality\Poly-Ana
The skin was created with Poly-Ana v1.3 Beta 6 so this or a later version should be used.
This is for Windows and i do not know how to do it in OSX.
The key file needed to unlock the demo is copied to the same "Poly-Ana" folder as the "Skin" folder mentioned above.
For the big version you would need a Full HD 16:9 display (1920 x 1080 pixels) like i have here. The other size has a width of 1200 pixels. I admit that the smaller one is harder to read than the bigger one but this also depends on the screen resolution.
There do not seem to be many other skins for Poly-Ana that have a width of 1500 pixels or more. For smaller skin there are also other choices including those skins from Limeflavor that are nice.
Also the arrangement of the controls in my skin is a bit different than most others that are available.
