Default TeaCuP Theme *WIP*

https://stash.reaper.fm/theme/2208/T...ReaperThemeZip

I decided to take a TCP based approach with this latest theme attempt.
The idea is that for people who work mainly in the TCP to have a theme
which supports many levels of nested folders.
The resolution is 1920x1080 so the height of the TCP is 30px.
60px when recording and 5px when minimised.

You will also be able to choose your own default colors without editing the theme.

A derivative theme

I'm very interested in that new theme.
Should I say it's "ma tasse de thé" ? (don't know if that french expression has the same meaning in english -"my cup of tea" = it fits me )

looking pretty nice HW...

at first I was a little bothered by the vol knob not being near the meter but then I stretched and shrunk the TCP width and understand why you did it that way.

so far it is one of very few black themes I like

Sometimes there's a method to madness.
You can make it any color you want hopi.
It's better when darker (IMO) but the choice is the users.

Cheers!

Would this work for you?
- Make a layout that only has the FX on it or one with only the FX and track label or Track ID at bottom.
- Switch all tracks the the new layout.
- Set your mixer up the same as you would for 'Track Inspector' mode.

Default WIP

Unfortunately the TCP is not quite as simple as the MCP.
On the other hand, I'm now providing a different color volthumb and volbg for recarm and folderdepth.
The recarm color takes precedence when a track in a folder is set to record.
Tracks are colored only when selected, if Tint Track panel backgrounds is on.

I stashed it if anyone want to play with it. Cheers!

Default Xperiment

An Xperimental TCP I'm playing around with.
My goal is to have a single layout that resizes itself.

It's not guarenteed to work on multi-folder projects.

This could prove useful on hi (4K) resolution monitors.
I don't have one myself so I'd appreciate it if someone could try it.

Feedback welcome...

https://stash.reaper.fm/theme/2208/T...ReaperThemeZip



.ps I accidentally deleted the previous version

Hello
I have been staring at the transport contols of this theme for quite some time,switching from play/pause mode to stop (love that brief red lamp and the electric glow from those buttons).
Master MCP - A soft dark purple glow effect behind the peak/rms bars instead of black,is this possible?(I just saw that on the screen and then I realised I had only imagined it)MCP - I like that fader design.
I will enjoy watching the further development of this theme.

Thanks for your work.

Thank you...

I'm working on a limited theme based on the single
TCP layout that grows the icons as you stretch it.
It has 2 MCP layouts and 2 MCP masters.
You can give it a whirl...

Liking the pan pots ,gain control and the stretchy tcp very much but the mcp Alt layout has an issue (om my screen pulled up full height 900 ,the meter is covering the pan and partially covering the pan width control) ,I think you can fix that easy.
Is this version a "fork" and will you select and merge with TeaCup later to arrive at the final? That's what I'm thinking.

Anyway it's all good.
I'm going back into sound .

Hi prom,

My design is based on a 1920x1080 screen, so somethings may not work
right on a screen with a different resolution.

There are some tough decisions to be made when you try to make things work in all possible locations...

One of the many great aspects of the default theme.

A unique approach within the constraints of UI framework.
I installed latest version ,switched on automation modes and I discover more illuminations...(I like the read/latch and latch preview).
I also like lighting up track/channel armed.
I noticed in the stash pictures an icon set for main toolbar?
This theme?...it's kind of hypnotic!

Thanx prom...nice to know that someone else enjoys my experiment.
As for the main toolbar I've got em somewhere.
I'll get them in the theme as soon as I find em..Cheers

.ps

I'm using the Reaper V3 toolbar icons...
the only thing specific is the toolbar_blank which is included with the theme
change any icon in your existing toolbar and you'll have the look..

I shall try that toolbar icon fix.
Is that the Korg (ARP Odyssey VSTi) you got there? I see M1 so I'm guessing. GForce version good but I would probably choose the Korg if I was in the market for one.I love the ARP synths, especially the Odyssey and the 2500 modular (the control panel knobs,lights and switches on that are very cool imo).I did once own a hardware Korg MS20 long time ago,should not have sold it,probably would have been able to patch it properly by just about now! lol
Getting back to the point, I like the image above - the darkfader and all accross the board (no pun intended),more progress.Very cool seeing the gradual refinement and your vision taking shape.

@hwhalen - Thanks

Yes it is the Korg Odessey...and I also owned an MS10, 20 and 50 for a while.
I also foolishly sold em all.
I still own a first gen Yahama DX7 that still has the original battery in it...tells you that I don't use it much these days and that I've been around awhile.
I'll post the updated theme by the weekend.
Thanx for your comments.

That designates that the track is in a folder. Make a folder...the fader will be that color.

(WiP) * magic paint/rad lighting *
Looked at rtconfig...expected to find you had instructed "luma" in the code somewhere (found none)???
Elements have similar effect to the meter glow in default.
