Default Themers...Can Walter Do This?

I under estimated the usefulness of themes in use with a DAW. It does make a difference!

Apollo and now Janne are my favorites.

So far, Reaper has been able to do everything I've wanted to do but it has taken a considerable amount of time - not time used in recording or creating...but simply setting things up! That's the upside, and downside of Reaper.

So, before I venture into a new area called Walter and invest even more time, please tell me if this should be possible...

Can you make a mixer panel that's nothing but Send controls?

It seems that naturally, the fader will be the most common element. The themes I've seen make variations on the fader size, the VU, etc. But, I haven't seen a mixer panel with Sends only, or Inserts only. So, I wonder if it's possible.

Why this is desired is that for my live show, I use a lot of sends and the fader of the track is pretty much irrelevant or useless since the signal is piped out pre-fader.

I don't mind learning how to do this, but if someone familiar with themes can tell me if a "sends only" panel is possible, I'll jump right in.

Thanks!

Its possible to have just sends and inserts area as a layout.

Youll need to look into the extmixer element of the walter code. It controls the position of the insert/send area.


set mcp.extmixer.mode [1]
set mcp.extmixer.position [here you set the desired numbers for positioning]

Look into the guides for WALTER at the top of color themes forum area.

This layout is for the Apollo_A theme. Put the text at the end of the mcp section in the rtconfig file.

If only sends are active (mixer menu) this layout will show just the sends. Otherwise it will look like the default layout.

Edit: Ok. I found out that you can leave "Show Parameter" ticked. Anyway, this layout gives you the possibility to show a long row of sends if you want or to switch back to the default layout if you don't need them anymore.

Witti,

Thanks for the quick mod to Apollo_A!

After figuring out how to apply the mod (total newb on themes)...what you've done it exactly what I was looking for!

Thank you!

And then...playing with some of the other layout options, I found Sidebar to be almost as good but in fact, more useful in other track cases.

Here's a screen print of what I have set up.

Thanks again for the help, and theme!
