Deep Blue
 
Deep Blue is a new flat theme inspired by Default Analog and the flat GUI's of Valhalla and Fabfilter plugins. Emphasis is on clarity, flexibility, consistency, and usability. There are dark, medium, and light versions, each with 14 MCP layouts, 8 TCP layouts, two MCP and TCP masters, and two transports. Each of these layouts is available in Black, Silver, and Classic flavors. There are mouseover effects whenever possible to increase visual feedback, and these are consistent throughout the theme - among main toolbar, user toolbars, effects, mixer sends, etc.

Of course, I want to give all credit due to White Tie, Lerian, and anyone else who may have contributed. Almost all of the PNGs and much of the WALTER are new but lots of their work is under the hood.

Nice! After seeing the purple theme, I was hoping a blue one was next.

Blue is my favorite color!

Very nice theme

Bump! First post updated with 1.0 versions of all three themes.

Some very nice aspects in the theme. However, (as with many other themes) your theme does not respect the VU meter colour settings. As I do not like the purple VU meters, I will unfortunately not use it. It is a pity since the rest is quite nice. Maybe you can make an update which uses the theme settings in the Reaper preferences for the colours?

I notice some differences between the Purple Bright and the Blue Bright.
First the color round the volume sliders background in TCP in the Blue is darker than in the Purple.
In the mixer the background (where the FX are) of the Blue theme is darker.
I also agree about the meters: it really looks fantastic, but I think the conventional green-orange-red is somewhat better to our eyes.
And I still wonder how you created that shade of color purple via dark blue going on to light blue in your Arrange view of tracks?

Just unzip the theme and delete the three meter_strip pngs and you can set them however you like. If you have 7zip you can even delete them without opening the theme up.

I think some of this might just be optical illusion created by the difference in color. The mixer bg, for example, is the exact same png in both themes. I'll double check today but I'm pretty sure the volume sliders are too. Are you thinking of one specific variant (Bright for example)?

If you want conventional meters you can follow the advice above and either remove the pngs or replace them with traditional red-yellow-green ones.

The gradient in the Arrange view is from the SWS color management tools - you can pick two colors and it will fade between them.

@Swamp Ape now we're talking, Blue is greaaat. Thanks for sharing :-)

Swamp Ape 10-14-2014 09:29 AM

You're welcome!

Here's
some more traditional colored meters from the Default Analog theme. You can replace the ones in the reaperthemezip folder with these.
