As cool as it can be!

Personally I like better some elements of the older MCP. Like the insert toggles instead of the sliders, the non highlighted (in red) sends, The metal pan knobs (not the outer dented rings), The labeled lower row of buttons... But hey, that's only me.

mmmm ... just saw this piece of work.

Lookin' good !!!

Already with a suggestion, though [i know ... sorry].

Buttons on the tracks ... with the names underneath ... hmmm.

This is ultra nitpick, but this forces 2 looks. name then button.

Putting the name on the button ... instant ... and efficient layout.

will definitely be watching this work

I agree...names/icons into buttons are more easy to view and more space to one more clear visibility...

Not an issue over here... After 2-3 times using a button I find it by position or color... Looks awesome don't tweak

Dear Albert, Merry Christmas and thank you so much for your great job.
As I already wrote you, I'am a little bit disturbed with the fact that quasi all legends are located under a button or a LED. If you look at a real hardware mixer gear, you will see that legends are located above a button, or on the right or on the left, but not below (rarely, I say). Ergonomically, when you push a button, your finger has to not hide the legend.
I can understand that to modify that thing could be a huge work, but I can hope... <;o)
Many thanks again,
Cheers,

Batman2

Thank you Albert, looks AMAZING.

Playing with it, I find the Track stereo split to only have the knob. I assume this to be right, but in case there were more options.....

This theme is SWEET. I'm offended that it (at the moment) only has 126 downloads. Hmph. Anyway, playing around with it for a bit shows I'll need to get used to the way it deals with folders. Great job Albert.

Default Thank You!!

Love this theme. Looks great across dual 24s.
However:

1)In the mixer where no tracks are present, you get a glaringly bright block. Would be nice if it was darker. (Please see attached)

2)Anyway to make selected tracks MORE highlighted or stand out better? The blue surround highlt and the word SELECTED are hard to see even on dual 24s.

I must say, this is impressive.

Thank you,

Duff

The theme is very nice!
but...

In Mixer Panel the Master panel (bottom, placed on the left) seems a pixel or two above the line of the track in the Mixer.
And it is not very clear on the eyes what tracks or event are selected.

Or is it just me?

Duffman, I agree this section should be dark grey by default but you can change it easily:

Preferences-Theme Editor-Empty mixer list area

And there choose your color !


+1 for easier to see selected tracks, in TCP I put on auto armed when clicked the track label name becomes red so its easier to see.

I dig the "select" in the mixer I already got accustommed to it but I too felt it could be more obvious in the bottom part of the mixer.
When the contour is a different coulour when selected its very easy to see.

adXok hopfully the Master will be aligned with the tracks in new layouts...

But other than that this theme rocks It's always on my desktop Great Job Albert !!!!

comment about making selected tracks in tcp and mcp easy to see:

On my own CIRCUS theme and on a very few others as well, I have made a 2 px line [red or white or whatever] that makes at lease a partial border around the selected track...

I gotta say, I think something like this should always be done because it CAN become very difficult to tell for certain when a track is or is not selected. Just a slight shift in color or tone is not nearly good enough for me!

I am so used to working that way in my own theme that when I go to something like the v4 default it really is bothersome.

Now I really do userstand it's not an easy thing to add when you have a lot of layouts... but in the long run, to me, it's the way to go.

Hi Albert,
Just a word about your theme as it is right now: really awesome!
you have some incredible skills and great taste on shadows and textures!
I hope you will soon pass over the imperial element, especialy those little leds, i think thier colours don't really mach your own style, witch is verry caracterised and defined!

Really great!
happy new year to you and everyone!

Great theme. I have one thought though... the ordering of the buttons on the track could be better. Such that if you resize smaller, the most important buttons are the last to disappear. I'm thinking mainly of the "arm" button which is the first to go currently as it's on the bottom row.

I think the buttons on rado vox were well thought out in that regard.

Maybe something to look into.

Thanks for the theme.

Many thanks Albert for your good works!

I see you called it a beta... does that infer there will be an alpha and rc's and a final someday?

I hope neither Albert, whom I greatly admire, honor and respect, nor anyone else will be offended by this...

I made a few mods to the BETA, really just for myself, but thought some others might care to play further with it.

It is here:

https://stash.reaper.fm/theme/1103/SO...ReaperThemeZip

now... I used a font family for the transport big readout... that you may not have, so I'll make a zip of that family and put it on the stash ...link is below:

Those are the toolbars that come with RadoV4/Reaborn...

Customized a little though.

toolbar icons... you can collect them from various thems and store them in your toolbar_icons folder [in Data folder]...and\or make some of your own... just watch out for duplicate names.... so you might have to put something unique in the file name... like say a zzz or a yyy... then you can have tons of them to use in your toolbars... if that is what you want.

+1 for toolbar button clarity. Using dual 27" monitors and the 'off' state is quite un-readable.

Hey folks! Wooow great that I stumbled in this because I have an issue as well, not only my toolbar ain't really clear but also buttons kinda shrinked down. Was wondering how to enlarge them as before? Here is a link on how mine look now, very very tiny. Thanks for any help



Wish you all a splendid productive week
