Just installed it. Very impressive.

Hope you don't think we all take this for granted - I think it's pretty clear how many hours went into the development of this theme.

Your hard work is appreciated.

Amazing theme, thank you sir! My only gripe is that on the default TCP layout I really feel like the placement of the Record Monitoring and the Sends and Receives buttons should be switched around.

Very Nice! Thank You Nick.
Here's one suggestion. The volume label on the tcp is a little hard to see when selected.

Thanks, Wyatt

Thank you!!! This is one of the many reasons why Reaper is so much better than the other DAW's in my opinion. : )

Nick, how do I change the background color of the normal/bypassed fx button in the mixer? I want to change the brownish orange "bypassed" color to red and the "normal" gray color to green. I can't seem to find this option in the theme editor. Thanks!

THANKS! Worth noting here, especially considering this is the only theme I am aware of which does this:

You can extend the vertical TCP/Arrange divider bar all the way to the right so the TCP track names extend the ENTIRE horizontal length of the screen!

I use rather long track names and this means a lot to me! Thank you for keeping such a strong focus on functionality!

Yes, this is the best of the best, Nick.

One little (really obvious) thing is that the Color Theme downloads as:

RADO-V4.ReaperThemeZip

So, it is necessary to change the file name to:

RADO-V4.ReaperTheme.Zip to get it to unzip (on OSX anyway).

reaper reads this extension, no need to unzip it

Thanx. Quickly at first glance,
I haven't worked with it yet,
Some very nice MCP options.
Interesting floating menus.

Cheers!

Wow this is great! I've been working with it for the past hour or so and it's really..."comfy"
I love the narrow MCP layouts. Perfect for buses!

Thanks for all of your hard work!

Great work! Just a question though. In Rado Blue the Marker and Time Signature bars are colored (blue and green). Is it possible to have the same or something similar in Rado 4?

Thanks again.

Oh wow! Nick, you are really "the man"! Very tasteful, with just the right balance between "tangible" and "graphic". Since your v3 theme is my default theme for very long now, I think that in v4 it's gonna be the same Thanks a lot!

Loving Rado but for some reason I'm not seeing the transport position readout when the transport is docked in the default position (only happens with this theme)

Anyone else?

I can see it if I float the transport, as its in the line underneath the transport buttons etc. ie I have to extend the floating transport downwards to see it

Cheers
Jed

Thank you so much, Nick. This theme is Fab!

EDIT: The patterns at either end of the transport - BRILLIANT

Nick, it is so wonderful theme. Nice WALTER work! Like the piano-roll, very pleasant and good, easy on the eyes.
I feel like I am in a real pro GUI spaceship.

Thank you very much. The tough work just begins as here are very good testers to find some small glitches and bugs here and there but that is normal, none is perfect at first.

P.s. Is there anything wrong if someone would want to donate the author of themes? Maybe a little dangerous but I had to ask anyway. Think nickmoritz, silent, white_tie, brice... all deserve some small thanks.

These buttons are png images... unzip theme, find these images and change it in any image editor

You can find it in the theme editor (in REAPER) and change it by your own

Amazing, thank you so much !!!!
Faders dont look that great to me, as they're a bit too wide to my eyes...

Just have to find a way to colorize tracks/channels, damn (color menu has no effect here).

Hi Nick !

GREAT Job !!! Maybe a little bit to dark to me,but nothing I can tweak by myself except just one think.

On my REAPER, when activating the option "Tint track label background to custom track colors", the new colors does not fit well in the label (in the mixer as in the track panel).

Is there a way to fix it ?
