Default Help / Question - V5 Master Mixer - Sidebar Layout?

Hello!

I have 5 variations of the Default V5 (Default Nitpicky Edition) theme and I'm wondering if it's possible to make a Master Mixer - Sidebar layout that matches the Mixer Sidebar layout? Can anyone lend a hand? I tried to mess around with no luck. FYI: My themes only use the large layouts from V5... I'd like the Master Mixer to remain as is (dimensions) with the addition of the Sidebar that matches the Mixer Sidebar layout...

Theme info:

you might try copying that layout to the master layout section and add 'master.' (note the dot) in front of 'mcp' on all the 'set mcp' statements.
Example:
set mcp.mute
becomes:
set master.mute
etc.
it won't be perfect and you'll need to adjust it by removing and adding a few things as well as taking the meter settings from another Master layout,etc.
It should be a good starting point, though.

I think it's worth mentioning again that it won't be perfect and you'll need to adjust it by removing and adding a few things as well as taking the meter settings from another Master layout,etc.

I had something similar, rewriting the already existing master mixer layout like:

Code:

I think I've got it!

Your code got me most of the way there... Thanks again, xpander!

I had changed some values from the default and had to figure out what I changed (and remember what I had learned about WALTER but already forgot!)... More work to do to verify and update my other versions...

Glad to hear you got it sorted. Ah, yeah...it was just a quick mod of existing values once I had estimated how much extra space you would need for the extmixer, so further refining was to be expected.

I did try to learn something new about the Master MCP extmixer behavior but failed with all the shorter tweaks so ended up with the long form.

I foolishly thought it would be something easy and was trying 'the shorter tweaks' and nothing worked like I had expected... Thanks again!

Mission accomplished (I hope)...

I added the Master Mixer Sidebar layouts to my themes (w/ black, silver & red faders). Will check tomorrow to make sure they look right and upload new versions...

Thanks for your help!
