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.

REGARDING JUSTIN's kind and intriguing comment, above, in post #5.


I'd be entirely thrilled if the, "how REAPER looks" conundrum was mostly rendered moot.


JUSTIN SAID:
... """considering making REAPER v6 fully autonomous.""" ...


w\O/w

Looking forward to getting my V6 license.


No other computer program in my last 35 years comes anywhere close to how much I care about REAPER.


GREATEST THANKS

Will it write hit songs for me though? None of the ones I'm writing manually are becoming hits, so that would be great if you could make it do that.

Thanks in advance.

I don't really like the standard GUI, and since there is a Theme library and it took me maybe an hour to hunt down a few I liked better I'm perplexed as to why this is an issue???

My only issue with the GUI is the blaring white text editor pop up control windows, and it's well into the 'doesn't really matter' category.

Just finished an 80 track song/mix - Reaper default skin + creamy track/part colors are life saver. IMO Reaper is one of the rare programs, which doesn't loose transparency when track count increases and mix complexity grows - not sure why, but something magical is going on there, i guess, haha. As a long time Cubendo user, i know for sure, that i would have lost my mind if mixing this one in Cubendo. And all this with silly low CPU consumption.

To have more "Cubase-like" take system in Reaper - i agree, that would be AWESOME

You realize that Cockos haven't actually said anything concrete about 6 yet - what will be in it, or when it will happen - right?

As already stated many times: the Version numbers are just that: numbers. Without any special meaning regarding the content of the version named by them.

Hence this thread is fruitless from the beginning.

Can someone explain about fully autonomous?

Seriously i love if they update the UI and stuff because i don't like the current UI either that much. I use f.lux software to reduce the eye strain while i'm working on reaper. Also i couldn't fine a proper theme to replace the default theme because i like the workflow of it. I couldn't move to another DAW because this is an insane DAW. So hope they will do something great for it.

It was a joke. Autonomy means to have self control, so a fully autonomous DAW would be able to play, record, master, render, etc all the music, thus removing all user-related input. Clearly that would make it useless.

The theme I find mimicks the original Theme workflow the best, wich I think is pretty optimal, is Paulie. Hydra too I think is very close.
It does not seem to be easy to come up with a flashy/analogy GUI that keeps the workflow from the original and also laptop friendly maybe Imperial is to my taste the best looking while keeping most if not all functions but transfers badly to small laptop.

Maybe there will be a new GUI that's a tiny bit better looking than the current original, wich is not that bad at all just a little bland to my taste but so efficient, but I don't realisticly expect it to be out of this world. As long as themers come up with interesting options it's not a big thing IMO.

Adding themeable plugins and windows would be awsome to keep consistency between themes it's basically my only wish at this point for Reaper aside some long pending FR and some tidy ups. Hopefully the focus will eventually be set on those. It would be great if Justin sets out on a old FR quest for a couple of updates. Not that he has not been doing it, what has been implemented are very nice extras like Spectral edits and ARA, but some stuff seems like overdue they are minor things though they just would make Reaper a little more tight.

Yeah I never get the UI complaints either...

As long as Reaper 6 has a detachable LM and a robust heat shield so my recordings don't burn-up when reentering the earth's atmosphere, I'm cool.
