Default Reaper Muted Background Colour

Hi guys, then I wanted to know if it was possible to remove the dark color when you put in mute a track, I guess so, because of Reaper you can do anything. because I want to take it off? Because frankly I bother me and confuses me the view. I hope someone can answer me. Thank you!

'Fraid not - several requests have been made to be able to change that.

Personally, I think it should be in the prefs or theme editor to at least tone it down a little...

Yes, a "Media Item Muted Overlay" option in theme tweaks for this would be handy.

This is one of my biggest pet peeves... It introduces a lot of visual 'noise'... Altho I appreciate it can be useful. Being able to set a % opacity would be ideal.

Has this been addressed yet? I'd rather have a "faded" look on a muted track. Now I'm getting this highlighted appearance which kind of defeats it's purpose I think. Voting this up!

Bump. Ping. And so on . I was searching for this everywhere, and it seems it's hardcoded into Reaper and not changeable, still?

If there is no interest in adding a new color category to the theme tweaker for this, it would be cool if it could at least be adjusted by opacity/intensity in the Appearance options.

Ideally I'd like it to have a typical entry in the tweaker, with a blend method and a color. But at least give us something, haha. I have quite a few mutes in my workflow, usually, and when using a bright theme the arrangement view is full of very contrasting dark streaks :P

Being able to configure this color is one of my few humble wishes for Reaper 6

Maybe Justin just forgot about this one? I don't think it is worth to wait for 6 to implement this (I hope) simple thing.

Maybe if I rephrase it's my super humble wish for Reaper 6?

If he read this, probably something will happen.

If he reads this and checks out the track coloring code, it might be in the realm of possibility to implement this related request: https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?p=2025014 ... but that might be pushing my luck on these

I agree that this is a really important issue, and that it is not merely "cosmetic". In my mind, and in many others, muted tracks should fade into the background until they are unmuted. As it stands, the opposite happens, muted tracks are brought forward which contributes to problems for a section of the user-base to "read" the arrange screen quickly and intuitively.

That's my specific woe with this, yeah... As it is now, muted tracks are the ones that always visually jump out of my arrangements the most, creating hard contrasting horizontal "zones" for no reason. And I'd like it to be the opposite.

+1. Muted tracks are visually standing out way too much

+1 I've taken to hiding muted tracks to avoid this

Agreed, no control (dark muted on light theme) = UI problem.
