Long live the dots!

I say leave them as they are!
they add something special..

Or just make them a hair more subtle, more gray/tinted,
not as white..

But give the guy a break with the pan knobs already! lawl
he's doing a great work regardless of our nitpicks..

Nice even though i 'd prefer some horizontal lines in the mixer where the insert fx are to see better the difference when adding multiple fx but that's just me,great work.

There are a few things that have too much stroke in my opinion:

- the send icon
- the Fx word
- the bus icon

Modern Pan:


Classic Pan:


And here's a very fast mockup replacing the Blue base color with Yellow or Green..
Yellow - http://imgbox.com/DAsMhWLP
Green - http://imgbox.com/8nErMqyr

It's a bit excessive/basic; different Shades of color could be used,
but I think the tracks and Toolbar buttons feel right.

I also tried with Red and Purple, but it didn't work as well for some reason..

PS: Forgot the dots!

I'd love for the TCP pan to be the same as in the latest MCP showing, except with coloured fill like the volume control (in the TCP)

@Blankfiles - good point by rothchild. Can you make the volume and pan faders in MCP have the blue fill just like the vol slider in TCP? That could be great, actually.

Hi there,

I love the look of this theme, great work. A slight mod/request for the MCP tracks...

Current:



Mod:



The very subtle mod just adds a highlight line on the left hand side, with a *very* subtle light gradient. We read from left to right, so seeing the highlight on that side gives us a 'root' to base our vision from, marking the start and end of each vertical track. This is especially useful in our peripheral vision (big part of DAW UI/UX).

Stare at the center slider on each version. In the mod your eye/mind will find it easier to identify where each track starts and ends.

Rather than being: fader-meter-fader-meter-fader-meter-fader-meter

It's: fader-meter : fader-meter : fader-meter : fader-meter

P.S. The subtle gradient highlight is only on the track panel 'body' (ends at horizontal sliders), while the single line highlight continues up to the top of the track FX. Just a quick edit so the highlight doesn't follow the curve at the top.

Thin outlines—for the track names—aren't very well suited for peripheral vision. Solid/thick lines root the eye at the base, are easily seen peripherally, and act as a mirror to the top of the FX window (top and bottom 'book ends' around the track). Easier to group tracks visually with solid blocks/lines too. They match the dividers between FX and sends also; consistency = sexy :¬)

Two small changes that make each track 'feel' well defined and contained (from left-right and top-bottom).

FWIW, I used to be a pro UI/UX consultant for global bank/mobile brands. These are great (simple) tricks that keep the user knowing where they are within a UI, making it more usable/enjoyable in the long term. Free to completely ignore all this of course, just my 2c that may or may not be useful.

This is such a great looking theme. I think this will elevate my Reaper experience. I just hope that it does see the light of day and not be abandoned like so many other nice looking potentials. If this needs to be a paid theme, then I'm in. Just finish it and lets have it. PLEASE!!

Wow, I've been searching for a theme to make Reaper look plainer and more enticing. I've tried a few that are really nice, even looked at editing themes to include aspects I liked, though found this too much for me. This theme is the best I've seen yet, and there are some stunners out there!

Will it be free? Is there an estimated release date for it at all?

A forgiving guy, and with the look of his newest ILogic 3 screencaps.....truly a REAPER theme God...or at least demigod.

Excellent! Thank you blankfiles
It's wrong people ripping off your idea but it seems you have some loyal followers! Hopefully you haven't given up on this theme as it looks astounding

Just a cosmetic change :
The '0' label on the volume slider should be located on the right instead of the left. Now, it seems to close to the leftedge, and there is an empty gap between the volume slider and the metering.

Looks great so far. But I would make no labels for pan or smaller. And the colour for the sends is to light.

I actually wouldn't change anything, now. The problem I see is: this theme will never be finished if everybody is nitpicking like crazy. It's clear that people want different things and apparently it's not possible to please everyone.
My advice would be: if people want changes after the theme has been released, make a donation.
Plus, we have to use a theme, to judge if it is working the way it looks like.
Of course Blankfiles has to agree about this.

But maybe this way everybody will be happy.

I agree, but mainly cos I so wanna try it out!

It is most definitely one of the best themes I've seen for any app, along with Reaprise. I'll struggle to know which to use! Lol

Both are amazing efforts and can't wait to try them out

This is really great, it will probably replace my current Janne2016 theme.
My suggestions- (maybe its been talked about already)
in mcp maybe it would be visually good to have some separation of the effect and send slots with some lines (a bit darker hue or smth) ?
Also still not a huge fan of the big separated pan knob in tcp, since the parameter isn't SO much more important than the rest are.
Do you have some plans for having a light version of the arrange backround and items aswell? The neon-style edges and color seem kind of confusing. If you dont plan to do that, I guess it wouldnt be hard to customize it later..

But anyway, as I said at the beginning- fantastic work

Could the Volume Slider be moved to the right slighty?

The idea is to be coherent with Superior Drummer, which has the 0 located at this exact spot. There's nothing wrong with improving an already existing GUI, but when the premise is to make REAPER look like Superior Drummer, at some point there are things that one must let go of. The theme looks final to me, when it comes to looking like SD.
