Default Default Commala 5 2016 (with fully-tinted track panels)

As several people have requested fully-tinted track panels, I've made an update to my theme mod which I've called 'Default Commala 5 2016' which includes this and other changes to improve usability. Note that the track panel tinting can't be turned off from within Reaper (it's integrated in the image files), simply switch to Default Commala 5 vanilla to do this.

I've also added the large transport from the default Reaper 5 theme, and souped it up a bit (mostly to allow the primary transport buttons when 'center track controls' is set to remain centered as long as possible).

https://stash.reaper.fm/theme/1912/De...ReaperThemeZip

========================

Updates include:

- fully-tinted track panels

- item background colour becomes black when selected

- colouring by take will tint item peaks (separate item background and content tinting)

- added the large transport layout from the default Reaper 5 theme

- new colours for midi channels

- new colours for FX parameter envelopes

- new colours for CC lanes in MIDI editor to improve legibility

- darker window list background colour to improve legibility

========================

The dark version of my theme mod, Default Commala 5 is based on Lerian's 'Default Analog' mod of the Reaper 4 default theme by White Tie

Default Commala 5 features:

- MCP track folder-state indentation, as seen in WT Voodoo

- new TCP layouts: big meter, condensed

- new MCP layouts: narrow, FX rack, small master

- reworked MIDI editor

- new panners

- coloured fader layouts

The large transport from V5 looks great with your theme and matches the REAPER Web control interface!

I tend to swap between your dark theme and this default 5 dark theme below. Your new version tinting looks very easy on the eyes.
Excellent new version. Thank you.

+2... but any way to improve the contrast of the item buttons. Grey on grey in a mainly black theme may be cool but not for the over-the-hill Billies like me

Wow, this looks nice. Wel done!
Would it be difficult to make the background in the TCP window for the midi and wav's white? It is a bit too dark for me when editing clips. Also in the midi editor?

You can copy the colours from the light version of the theme by opening the theme tweaker and copying them one by one to this theme (being sure to save a new version and save to that version before switching back to the light theme)

When the buttons are on you can see them much better. I made the buttons in their off state much less visible so that when they're on they'll stand out more. And with a little familiarity you'll remember what buttons are there without actually needing to see them jumping out at you when they're off

Thanks. I already found the theme tweaker in the action list and experimented a bit with it. You know what? It turns out is not super difficult at all, even for me...;-)
But with this theme you did a great job. Thank you!

Is the light version just different colours in the theme editor?
