Default Stelzbock's clear theme

Hey guys... beacuse I never really was happy whith any of the themes, I started to create my own... to see how stressful this is and how long it takes. To all of you who finshed a theme: respect. There are so many icons...puh.

So, whatever, I have not finished my theme but I wanted you to comment my work. Is Ok that way? Or change requests ? I reaplaced icon by icon but there are still some icons made by akoustic.

My goal was to keep it clear. Not too many colors...

Update 07/02/19

Here it is:

Ok, now I've finished the last icons and the toolbar icons. So I+'m gonna release it. Now. Please test, if there are any problem with it.

For the link see attached file below.






Cheers, Jan

Very nice, those new icons look great.

I'd be interested to see if you could come up with replacements for the rest of the icons as well.

Cheers,

Malcolm.

Yeah, me too! For some icons I very quick ideas, for some not... What I need are the monitor icons, and all of the project icons on top. And I don't like the record arm buttons. I will change them.

Hey Stelzbock!
I'd rather like to write in german... Aber dann versteht das ja keiner

For me it's the best theme so far. No joke. It has nice colours and the icons look very neat! Thumbs up!

See you at HR.de

Greets,
Alsion

Wow, that is one of the best looking themes I've seen.
Very subtle background, nice color choices, has a very sleek and balanced look to it.

Hope you decide to complete this.

yours are the best buttons IMO, by far. Please do keep going as a full set of buttons like this will make Reaper look completely 'professional' and on a par with all the eye-candy DAWs.

keep up the great work

I wanted to color them equally because I find it really inconcise if you have alternately colored track background and some muted and then you have the color of the background wich is the timeline color!


And yes, I will share it if it's done.

Wow, that looks like from a total different planet or something, very cool, even though I dislike the waveforms, maybe color them in the lite red (like the record button) and lite blue...

stelz, this theme seriously kicks ass!

personnaly, i'd prefer a slightly lighter background color in the sequencer (some kind of dirty white/light gray) to have a contrast.

but that's my problem, not yours

great job!

@LOSER:

Hmm, I will check this out. But I really tried a lot. And what IMO is problematic with most of the other skins is that they use too many colors, especially in the track view and the items... Maby a light blue but be Ok, a red not. Because it should be a color that is found somewhere else in the theme even if there's no button active.

@edge: Yeah, the toolbar icons are not 100% perfect IMO, but it was really tough to get a similar look and all nessecary information in it. I really wish the tool bar and transport icons would be 32x32. The TCP icons are absolutely OK in 16x16.
Anyway, I may change the color a bit...

@At all: More comments! It's v0.9, so I still collect opinions

(Es tummeln sich ungewöhnlich viele Deutsche hier im Forum, hmm? )

Cheers Jan

Looks great, stelz.

I'm pleased to see that your buttons work well with almost any dark theme!

Well, it's your theme (I can edit it myself later, anyway [puts evil grin on face].)

OK, for the next one I will change it or at least see how it look together with all of the rest.

@all: Some requested a bit brighter background color. I agree that bright looks better on the first view, but its exausting for the eye. The best you can do is black background and white text.

I really experienced this a lot, beacause I used a really light-colored theme for REAPER and using FL in reWire mode. So I was switching the whole time.
And everytime I switched to FL, it was much more comfortable to my eye.

So if you work a long time continuously, the darker theme is better.

Maby I will do a ligth theme for the part-time users

The brain is taught: mute is amber. Therefore amber FX are muted. The brain distinguishes amber easier from cyan than cyan from darker cyan. Easier means less processing for the old wetware. Saving neuronal firings one firing at a time.

1pt for you I'll change it.

But what about the grey in the middle? Do you mean the toolbar icons? I wanted them to look like there is ring of light around them... Why is it not good? If you have again such a good explanation I may also change it, but at the moment I like the way they are...

Hey thank you!!

No it was absolutely not desired! This is a bug! You can try it. If pick black, its black. with a very dark gray it's any color (green, or amber...) if you go lighter to a not so dark gray it's gray again!

I will pick a color that works for the next release!
