Default Recommended theme for HiDPI new Macbook Pro (retina) screen?

Hi

I recently replaced my computer with a new Macbook Pro. Problem is Reaper looks pixelated and awful on it due to 99% of the themes not being HiDPI ready.

On that note, is there any theme that will actually look sharp on these new Macbook Pros?

Thank you.

There are a few things...
1. v4 theme mod (linked in my signature below). It's not perfect (and it might be missing some things in a few layouts) but I find it's usable.

2. METRIC (https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=197202). Personally I find it a bit too dark and a bit complicated in the mcp, but it looks really cool.

3. [There's a v5 and v6 alpha theme in the prerelease forum]

4. [Also from the prerelease forum, there's an update in the works that means that any generated text (like track names... etc.) will render better on non-HiDPI themes. I've actually just switched back to an old pro-tools theme that looks so much better than it used to, now that both the text and all the arrange area is retina]

I feel like I'm missing a few... but hopefully this helps.

Thank you for those suggestions! It really looks dire, I hope the updates with the retina text especially come through soon.

Thank you.
If you like a ‘clean’ theme, perhaps check out MXM Scalable (based on JanneV2Tinted).
