Default "ASCEND" Reaper Theme *WIP*

This is a Neve console inspired theme I am working on. It's still very early for the theme!

Based off of Neve Genesys Black Console

I still have a ton of work to do on this one, I will be adding multiple layouts both mcp and tcp, as well as re-doing some of the MCP elements which in my opinion need some polishing up.

I'll be posting updates on this one as I work on it for you guys to check out and give feedback on!

Looks very nice, although I would prefer green color for low output values and only orange and red for high or too high values. And I am curious of the meaning of the red dotted stripes on channels 2,4,5 and 6?

The red meters are based off of the Genesys neve console which is something I'm not used to seeing in reaper themes either but I really like the look of it and wanted to try something new. I will be adding a layout with more traditional colors for the meters (green for the bottom, yellow for the middle and red for the top)

As far as the red dotted stripes they are actually on every fader but they're right underneath the fader so you can't see them when the volume is set to 0dB

Thanks for explaining. I'll be waiting patiently until you will be able to finish this good looking theme!

Added an alternative "Green Meter Layout" for a more traditional meter

Thought about where to put the automation mode indicator yet ?

The lower right area of the faders domain might be worth considering. The indicator could be fairly light and small there.

I actually like the unorthodox red meters on this theme. I'm not sure what the logical peak color would be with red on the bottom...

I have to agree with the others here Jeff. That is some very nice work! I'm a big fan of console emulation themes and this is one of the nicest and most practical looking I've seen.

Keep it Red for default please. Everyone's hands in the cookie jar seems to be the reason why so many potential great themes loose it's original character, not saying it is bad. Can't please everyone so just do what you think is your best representation of your work.

Curious to see what you do with track panes.... always the trickiest bit to get looking "right"

Really liking this so far. The red meters are a nice contrast from the usual and I could definitely get used to them.

Would recommend that you have options to see track inserts and sends for convenience.

Would also ask that the fader panels be resizeable vertically so people can account for different sized monitors and use of space.

Great with green, yellow, orange, red meter zone indicators instead of whole red. I´d like if we were able to color the whole mixer track, not just the track name background.

Keep the good job
