Default Solaris_LCS Ver. 2.5 - uploaded on 3/20/2019

Solaris_LCS Ver. 2.5 - *v2.5 uploaded on 3/20/2019

NOTE: This theme has evolved into LCS_Luna


UPDATE: 09/30/2019
--------------------------------------
- fixed text position for Master TCP label and MCP Tracking FX Parameters

UPDATE: 09/26/2019
--------------------------------------
- fixed Home and Pause On buttons in Midi editor
- changed clicked on feedback behavior for all Midi transport buttons
- changed the FXlist Param Normal and Bypassed text to make each state clearer

Blue and Gray versions are available:
Solaris_LCS_Blue_v2.5
Solaris_LCS_Gray_v2.5

* Note #1: you will need to unzip the file twice and then copy the Solaris_[blue or gray]_v2.5 folder and the accompanying Solaris_[blue or gray]_v2.5.ReaperTheme file to your Reaper ColorThemes folder.
The double zipping is due to file size limitations for Stash and the theme cannot be used in the .ReaperThemeZip form due to what appears to be a folder depth issue.

Major update to version 2 which itself was an extensive re-build of version 1.
v2.0 added many new layouts, many of the graphic elements were modified or rebuilt.
v2.0 was also modified to have better flexibility than version 1.
v2.5 is mostly an overhaul of the TCP, but includes similar button updates to all layouts based on the THIN layout.
There are new layouts as well:
- Long Name - layout for the TCP
- A Strip - Strip layout for the MCP named 'A Strip' due to what appears to be menu limitations.
New additional Transport layouts :
- Blue Default - Same layout as the default in the LCS_Blue theme.
- Centered Controls - controls are more centered.
- R4 Default - as close as possible to the Reaper 4 default.

Other notable changes:
- adjusted the Midi Editor out-of-bounds area to be darker.
- added the norec images for monitoring with record disabled. Note: this feature is only available in Reaper v5.72 and after.
- Expanded the Recmode & Recmon button areas to include their half of the frame around the Recarm button to make it easier to click on instead of right clicking the Recarm button.
- changed track label text to turn blue/turquiose when track is a parent or an end folder. I just wanted it to happen with a parent folder, but the command doesn't appear to have that ability.
- changed the Transport Play, Pause and Record buttons to look like the whole button lit.
- added small button modes to the TCP IO and TCP Input FX buttons to make them also available in the smaller height or compact track size.

The TCP Envelope panel comes from White Tie's Imperial.
I left this as is from the Solaris Pro theme since it looks good and fits the theme.
Items in the Transport also taken from White Tie's Imperial theme, but the Transport was customized to fit the theme better.
White Tie does not appear to take donations, so please go his most current thread and say: "Thank You".
