Default LCS_Sesshin

LCS_Sesshin
Available now on Stash
A gray version is also available: Sesshin-G

A mixer mod of the LCS_Luna theme.
I originally made the layout for that theme, but thought in the end that it didn't really fit that theme.

INSTRUCTIONS:
put the ReaperThemeZip file in your Color Themes folder or drag and drop the theme on an open Reaper window.

CHANGES:
- some new graphics
- adjusted the VCA, Tracking and Strips layouts to fit better with the new default.


MCP LAYOUTS:
------------
DEFAULT - Default layout
NARROW - narrow version of the DEFAULT
WIDE - WIDE version of the DEFAULT
FX RACK - Controls on top, tin meter on left of a large, strechable FX list. A wide version is also available.
SEPARATOR - wide or thin blank layouts for making space between tracks. Has the track label so it can also be used to signal the start of a group of tracks.
SEPARATOR NARROW - same size as the other MCP Narrow layouts
SEPARATOR STRIP - same size as the MCP Strip layout
SEPARATOR WIDE - same size as the MCP Sidebar layout
SIDEBAR - wide layout with FX list along the right side of a Narrow style layout
STRIP - access to all controls, has track label and a meter
STRIP Name - limited controls, no meter and large, expandable label area
STRIP Meter - mostly a meter with limited controls and no track label
TRACKING - knob only, no fader with a big adjustable meter.
TRACKING NARROW - Narrow version of the Tracking layout
VCA - default and Narrow sized versions, limited controls. no FX area. can be expanded/contracted like the other layouts.


MCP MASTER LAYOUTS:
------------------
DEFAULT - matches default MCP layout
FATBOY - big meter with volume knob instead of a fader
WIDE - wide version of the default Master MCP layout


TCP LAYOUTS:
------------------
DEFAULT - main TCP layout
LONG NAME - matches default TCP layout, but has a longer name or label area
SPACER - Only shows the name or label when condensed. expand down to access controls.
SEPARATOR - blank layout for making space between tracks. Has the track label so it can also be used to signal the start of a group of tracks.
VCA - Dafault and narrow sized layouts with minimal controls


NOTE: all fader layouts have a blue, green, red or yellow fader version available


UPDATE: 10/09/2019
- fixed ENVCP layout bug

see screenshots below

One possible "bug."

The Envelope default setting has text that blends into the background almost completely, while the Wide option has clearly visible text. I like the Wide option, personally, so this won't really effect me, but on the off chance that it was not intentional I'm sharing it here.

Fixed!
Good Catch.
Definitely not intentional, ENVCP should only have one layout.

Great themes!
But one question: Why do all the separators have the mute button? Can I get rid of that? (I actually see this in a lot of themes, but not all(!)).
Any reason why a separator must have that button?

it's there so you can easily change it to on.
The Solo button is next to it so it can be easily changed to Off if it gets turned on.
Both buttons are always there, but the Mute is invisible when it's On and the Solo button is invisible when it's Off.
The separators are not used for audio, so those two states are the normal or preferred states.
The Recarm button is only there when Armed and not there when Unarmed (the preferred state).

The mute and solo would also not be there when in the preferred state if they had the status argument the recarm button has.
This way, they would also not be click-able while in the preferred state.

setting the separators up this way alerts you to the separator becominng unmuted, soloed or armed for recording allowing you to easily notice and correct it.

It's best to set the separator up and then lock the controls for it.

Ok, I think I understand.
But would there be an option to get a separator really without anything on it? Like "CRado" has it for example? Just to have it even more beautiful ;-)

I've been using LCS_Sesshin as my main theme for a couple weeks now and had to come back to comment on it. This is now my default theme. I have loved each of the LCS themes (Solaris, Luna, and Mahina), but Sesshin is perfect for me. Enough options in the layouts for my use case, without a lot of the layouts that I simply do not use. The Aesthetic is perfect. I have my FatBoy meter. The Sidebars. A few extras to play with as I explore new workflows in Reaper. All around great theme. I have tried numerous themes and almost switched to Solaris, but always end up gravitating to the Default 5 theme Nitpicky Edition, until now.

Excellent work (on all the LCS themes). Sesshin just fits like a glove.

Lucas I just wanted to comment on what a fantastic looking theme Sesshin is. Extremely well laid out and very sophisticated in its appearance. The contrast and chosen colors are perfect in my opinion. Very nice piece of work, thank you for all of your work on your themes.
