How do I get colored fader-caps layouts to automatically appear?
If you want to use the colored fader caps, a best practice approach is to use the SWS Autocolor/Icon/Layout extension. For instance, set the same shade of green used in Smooth for your drum tracks, then in the MCP Layout column of that screen, enter: 150%_A green (or whatever layout you want to use). Repeat for each color/layout. Then under options, make sure "Auto-Track Coloring" and 'Enable Auto Track Layout" are enabled. Now your tracks and mixer fader caps will automatically be colored accordingly.
Huh, interesting! OK, thank you.

As I mentioned in the above post, the Theme Adjuster in Reaper is, well, not what I would call simple to decipher. :-) Where would I adjust the color/brightness of the volume and pan value readouts in the TCP?
