I wish the whole thing was darker, the TCP and arrange are good but the other stuff is too bright. I might tweak it

Just wanted to say you made a great theme Mordi, thank you! I've never been a fan of FL Studio's workflow, but I am a fan of the GUI.

In my workflow, I use the track inspector on the left side. With such a small MCP, it doesn't look pretty.
In some free hours I had today I implemented the extra wide mixer view in FL Studio in the theme. It now fits perfectly in the track inspector window. I also solved the pan/width issue by adding a width knob. I also changed the transport buttons a bit.



I'm not quite done with the changes yet, but maybe I can share it when I'm done!

Wow, nice work StefBosch! I definitely want to roll your changes into the theme. I’d probably want to remake the graphics in Affinity Designer though. Did you use Affinity to make the missing graphics by any chance?

No, I used Photoshop. Sorry. It should be possible to open the attached .PSD file in Affinity Designer. The only thing is that some vectors will be rasterized. To solve this I attached a font file for the icons. Once installed you can insert the icons with the letters 'qwertyu'.

I love that this theme can make track heights really small, and that on large track count sessions I can have more tracks visible on the screen, a la Logic and Cubase. Is there a way to get other themes to do this? Or is this baked into the theme somewhere?

Nice! Thanks StefBosch.

That's baked into the theme, via the "rtconfig" text file that sits in the image-folder. It's not a quick fix however, since each theme is made with a given track height in mind.

Ah well. Thanks for the quick reply!

Any chance you'll include the ability the have horizontal track names on the mixer? That's one of the only things throwing me off about this theme at the moment.

Mordi, this theme is excellent. Great work.

I never used FL Studio, but regardless the theme is very pleasing to the eye, looks modern and is very user friendly. I also like that you gave it your own twist and not just copied FL Studio 1:1 (because honestly, that layout looks like a hot mess to me). Pleasure to work with, thanks so much for sharing!

Also I f*cking love Affinity Designer, it's really grown into an Illustrator killer.

Yes, but it'll be a while. That would need wider layouts, like the one StefBosch made.

Thanks! Yeah, I tried to keep some Reaper-isms in place, because my eyes are so used to those. However, I'd like to push the theme capabilities as far as I can to make everything look FL-like.

I remade and implemented StefBosch's ideas for the transport, with some changes. I think the BPM and the time signature are linked together, so they should be close to each other.

Also, I couldn't get the status bar to look like StefBosch did. I see no way to edit the font to look closer to FL?

Here's a screenshot from FL.

If you don't know what font FL is using: You could use a screenshot with a bit longer text and upload it to :

https://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/ to identify it.

they quite often get the font right.

Reaper automatically provides a margin when setting the status bar font. The only way to get the effect is to make the status bar larger with a transparent/invisible layer to create the illusion that the margin is smaller. I did come to the conclusion that this causes a lot of problems, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Good work, by the way!

I tried FontSquirrel before, which got quite close - but then I found that FL's fonts are stored plainly in their installation files. That means I can just try them all out until it looks identical. However; FL, Reaper and Affinity Designer has different ways of rendering text - so it will look slightly different for each.

Thanks! Ah. I think I'll keep it "normal" for now.

Changed some colors in the theme tweaker, and made new toolbar buttons. Unfortunately they need to be slightly smaller than FL's to keep their margins at 3px.

When I started making this I used FL 12 as a base, so some of the colors are/were off compared to FL 20.

The input FX button appears if the record input dropdown is wide enough.


Here's how it behaves in an extreme case.


I don't know what to put here:

It should work well enough in your resolution.

I found a solution to the transport issue by setting the right margin to -999:
set trans.status.margin [10 0 -999 2]

It still needs to be wider than FL's though, since Reaper can have two timecodes showing at once.

Edit: Added a width-knob.


Edit: Not sure how to tackle this problem, when using "dual pan" mode.

The problem is that there is a gaping hole there.

Edit: The MIDI editor colors are updated. They were actually a smidge too dark compared to what it was supposed to be.

Unfortunately, it'll never look quite the way I'd like it to - because of the way Reaper handles colors.

Edit: Found a way to do green selection around the master meter in the TCP.


Edit: Experimenting with making the solo button a light, like the mute button.

try moving the pan 1 pixel left and the width 1 pixel right.



it's clearly an arch connecting the two knobs together.

Thanks! I might be able to do something about the note colors, but it won't look as nice as FL's - unfortunately. I'm not sure how those colors work exactly.

These issues have been mostly fixed for Beta 2 (see above).

Hi Mordi! Thx again for your theme, i 'm enjoying using it

I just think of something regarding the send-receive wire indicators.

Would it be possible eachtime we hover over a wire, when there's a send or receive, to automatically colorize the wires from every track that is connected, in order to see easier where the sends or receives go?

Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure this is not possible.

I just uploaded the latest version now. Mostly fixes the issues with Dual Pan. See first post.

I wish most themes were darker too, unfortunately tweaking it usually involves opening up tons of different image files. Also if shadows or gradients are used then it's nearly impossible, the amount of work required to modify or create a theme is pretty staggering

Beta 2 is generally a bit darker than Beta 1 was.
