Default Reaper 6: any hints of new features?

I really hope they update the 90's GUI of the DAW and the included plugins.
Add save/recall of the mixknob setting.
Have a FLAT tight 2D pro lighty theme as a basis. And fix the annoyingly to use midi editor.

But what about features?

Given that in multiple threads it's been said Reaper 6.0 hasn't even entered pre-release stages, and Reaper 5.0 had been in pre-release for around a year before it was released, I think that is a strong indicator there is nothing that can be said about Reaper 6.0 yet.

Also there has been nothing mentioned on any thread on the forum about "what Reaper 6.0 will have different". There's only been speculation, most of it wild at that, and a bunch of people jumping up and down insisting on what they want Reaper 6.0 to be.

In other words: no.

Suggest some marketing slogans for Reaper 6:
Reaper 6.0: "Meh!, you can't please everyone!!!"
Alternative: "Not so different. Bring it on Whingers"

Get ready to wet your pants at the awesome prospect of new "Steady, Gradual, Subtle, Evolutionary Improvements" that do not break the Reaper user experience.

Really?

I'm sure that Reaper 6.0 will provide an automatic coffee-cooker
with a new preferences page where you can choose to stretch
the coffee by water, milk or raspberry juice! Also stretch-
markers can be applied ... and so Reaper 6.0 will be a giant
step ahead!

Considering that most of the work we do ends up being UI, we’re considering making REAPER v6 fully autonomous. While it would add considerable code to do so, it would also allow us to remove a lot more UI code, as well as solve the elusive errors that occur between seat and keyboard/mouse.

What does it matter what GUI it has (by default) when you can make it anything you want? btw, the default GUI bothers me as much as being able to breathe bothers me.

Cubase looks pretty much the same as it did 10 years ago.

Pro tools looks pretty much the same as it did 10 years ago.

Ableton looks pretty much the same as it did 10 years ago.

Reaper looks completely different than it did 10 years ago.

But yeah, about updating the gui...

1. The mix knob isn't on the plugin, it's on the window containing it. VST presets don't have anything to do with the mix knob and therefore can't save its position.

2. Save it as an FX chain and it will, in fact, save the mix knob setting. Same with parameter modulation - it exists outside of the plugin, so the plugin preset isn't where it would go.

Use your millions of quatloos to purchase LANDR and replace the Master track with it.

Out of sheer curiosity, can someone with more knowledge than I explain what fully autonomous might mean in terms of the UI? Googling this yields pages and pages about self-driving cars

Happily "fully autonomous" means that no human interaction is necessary and hence the GUI can be removed completely and these silly and unfocused discussions finally are silenced.

Does it mean getting rid of obnoxious OS UI elements which break our precious themes?

Har Har! And you managed to avoid using the hackneyed "meatware" expression!

P.S. So long as you leave the "globally significant" level on the Talent knob I am with you on this.

So the long rumoured merger with Cyberdyne Systems is true!

Just like an autonomous car gets you where you need to go, an autonomous DAW makes the hits for you.* You just put in the parameters and it does everything. It'll be a three-element GUI:
Genre 1 dropdown
Genre 2 dropdown
Crossover blend

User configurable elements will include background color (8bit) and up to 4 font choices.

Additional genre add-on packs will be available for $14.99.

*chart results not guaranteed.

I'm not the denizen here I once was, so I have to ask, based on the general overview I casually see.

..... has something been officially been said about V6 "being released soon"? Why is everyone so wound up about the UI all of a sudden?

Is Kathleen Kennedy involved?

Will the Boring Company use Reaper?

This will be nice! Won't have to have a tracking engineer! Along with the telepathic interface that senses what you hear and auto-corrects the mix, and the manual override that lets you say stuff like "cut 1.25 KHz on the drum submix by 0.5dB" into the talkback mic, this will make all the other DAWs have serious envy problems...

We're at v5.9, so people assume v6 will drop any day now despite there having been zero word about v6, no alpha cycle (v5 was in alpha for most of a year), nothing.

The UI stuff... people have been complaining about Reaper's UI, especially the parts that use OS coloring instead of Reaper colors, since v2.

I personally would love a less ugly and dated GUI(
but this is just IMO. On the other side I love so many features in Reaper.
