Default TeaCuP Theme *WIP*

https://stash.reaper.fm/theme/2208/T...ReaperThemeZip

I decided to take a TCP based approach with this latest theme attempt.
The idea is that for people who work mainly in the TCP to have a theme
which supports many levels of nested folders.
The resolution is 1920x1080 so the height of the TCP is 30px.
60px when recording and 5px when minimised.

You will also be able to choose your own default colors without editing the theme.

I'm very interested in that new theme.
Should I say it's "ma tasse de thé" ? (don't know if that french expression has the same meaning in english -"my cup of tea" = it fits me )

looking pretty nice HW...

at first I was a little bothered by the vol knob not being near the meter but then I stretched and shrunk the TCP width and understand why you did it that way.

so far it is one of very few black themes I like

Sometimes there's a method to madness.
You can make it any color you want hopi.
It's better when darker (IMO) but the choice is the users.

Cheers!

Would this work for you?
- Make a layout that only has the FX on it or one with only the FX and track label or Track ID at bottom.
- Switch all tracks the the new layout.
- Set your mixer up the same as you would for 'Track Inspector' mode.

Default WIP

Unfortunately the TCP is not quite as simple as the MCP.
On the other hand, I'm now providing a different color volthumb and volbg for recarm and folderdepth.
The recarm color takes precedence when a track in a folder is set to record.
Tracks are colored only when selected, if Tint Track panel backgrounds is on.

I stashed it if anyone want to play with it. Cheers!

Default Xperiment

An Xperimental TCP I'm playing around with.
My goal is to have a single layout that resizes itself.

It's not guarenteed to work on multi-folder projects.

This could prove useful on hi (4K) resolution monitors.
I don't have one myself so I'd appreciate it if someone could try it.

Feedback welcome...

.ps I accidentally deleted the previous version
