Default LCS_Luna_SE :: 4/21/21 - added TCP Flexible FX layout

Available now on Stash

A Mixer mod of LCS_Luna

INSTRUCTIONS:
put the ReaperThemZip file in your Color Themes folder or drag and drop the theme on an open Reaper window.

Changes From Earlier Version of Luna:
-----------------
- Default and Narrow layouts have a new expanded I/O section
- moved I/O above the meter and the Volume label moved to the bottom of the meter.
- made some layout changes. Layouts now use "jump cut" style for layout changes instead of sliding into place.
- added Sidebar and Big Meter layouts to MCP Master list

NOTE: If you are using HiDPI or 4K resolution, you will need to change the Transport layout to Blue Default.


MCP LAYOUTS:
---------------
DEFAULT - Default layout
NARROW - narrow version of the DEFAULT
SEPARATOR - wide or thin blank layouts for making space between tracks. Has the track label so it can also be used to signal the start of a group of tracks.
SEPARATOR NARROW - same size as the other Narrow layouts
SEPARATOR STRIP - same size as the Strip layout
SEPARATOR WIDE - same size as the Sidebar layout
SIDEBAR - wide layouts with FX list along the right side
STRIP - access to all controls, has track label and a meter
STRIP Name - limited controls, no meter and large, expandable label area
STRIP Meter - mostly a meter with limited controls and no track label
VCA - default and Narrow sized versions, limited controls. no FX area. can be expanded/contracted like the other layouts.
FLEX FADER - New layout, features the meter in the fader section
FLEX Narrow - matches Flex Fader layout
FLEX Sidebar - matches Flex Narrow layout with a sidebar for FX
TRACKING - Big Meter layout. Default and narrow versions included
TRACKING Sidebar - Big Meter Narrow layout with a sidebar for FX


MCP MASTER LAYOUTS:
------------------------
DEFAULT - matches default MCP layout
SIDEBAR - default layout with FX sidebar
BIG METER - Big meter with controls at the bottom.
BIG METER Sidebar - Big meter layout with FX sidebar
FATBOY - big, wide meter with controls at the bottom.
FLEX FADER - matches Flex Fader MCP layout
FLEX FADER WIDE - matches Flex Fader MCP layout


TCP LAYOUTS:
---------------
DEFAULT - main TCP layout
LONG NAME - matches default TCP layout, except buttons are lowered to allow for name label to keep stretching to the right.
LONG METER - Long Meter above Volume
BIG METER - has expandable meter.
BASIC - no Vol, Pan or main FX
MINIMAL - only has recarm, label, folder, Mute, Solo, TrackIDX and FolderComp buttons
SEPARATOR - blank layout for making space between tracks. Has the track label so it can also be used to signal the start of a group of tracks.
SEPARATOR FOLDER - layout with a 'folder tab' style and label to be used help mark off sections
VCA - Default and narrow sized layouts with minimal controls
FLEXIBLE FX - allows FX Parameters or FX GUI to expand with the panel


NOTE: all fader layouts have a blue, green, red or yellow fader version available

-----------------------------------
UPDATE: 04/21/2021
- fixed some graphic bugs
- NEW: Flexible FX TCP layout
allows FX Parmeters or FX GUI expand with panel

Update: 10/01/2020
- added new TCP FX & send images

UPDATE: 3/16/2020
- fixed Global and I/O Preview buttons
UPDATE: 12/22/2019
- added files and RTCONFIG-SPACER.TXT file to allow easy removal of the Flex Fader layouts and adding several MCP Spacer layouts instead:
- Spacer
- Spacer Narrow
- Tracking Spacer
- Tracking Spacer Narrow
- Master Spacer
- Master Big Meter Spacer
see screenshot in post #7


SPACER LAYOUT INSTRUCTIONS:
- extract the RTCONFIG-SPACER.TXT file from the theme.
- rename it RTCONFIG.TXT and add it back into the theme letting it overwrite the one already there.
-----------------------------------


see screenshots below:

this is a great theme. Love it. I am very new to Reaper, so please forgive the newbie questions but:

1- how do I get the different colored fader knobs in the mixer?
2- is there a way to make the text larger overall - like in the TCP for the instrument name - my eyes aren't what they used to be.

Thanks! Cheers
Kayle

1: right click on the track label or on the track number and select "Layout/Mixer Panel" or "Layout/Track Panel"
2: select the layout and fader color you want.

1: open the Action List and type "theme"
2: select "Show Theme Tweak configuration window" (should be at the bottom of list).
3: scroll down in the Theme tweaker window until you find the list of WALTER fonts.
4: Click on the one labeled "Track Title Font"
this will open a window where you can change the font, font style and size.
5: When you are happy with the change, you will need to click "Save" button and give an altered name to the theme.
you can just put "Modded" or "Altered" at the begining of the name to signify the change.
This let's you keep the original intact.

Note: Your version will depend on the images in the original, so you will need both in order to make yours work.

Thanks for the continuing improvement of the Luna theme.

I see you already have the envelope latch preview images for the TCP/MCP, but it is missing from the transport. (global_preview.png).

Odd, I thought I fixed that already.
I checked Mahina_SE and it has the same issue.
will post an update soon.
Thanks for the heads-up!

And as for most themes why is the BPM box so small?

Nice theme anyway will use it daily....
have a cool weekend...
Thanks!
Glad you like it.

The master layouts for any theme are only accessible from the "Options/Layouts" menu.
Hopefully you found this already.

The BPM box size is large enough for me and the size suits the look of the theme.
I'm guessing the other theme makers are sizing like that it for the same reasons.

In my regular daily use it's been modified default themes ever since v1. But my color themes folder has well over hundred custom themes, amongst them dozens of mods and hybrids I've made of them. Some of these custom themes made by others have inspired me and also given insights to different ways to mod mine. So I surely appreciate the efforts of people like you who make these themes available and like in this case, keep developing them further.

Sorry again if this is such a newbie question, but why am I seeing the mute button when I select the channel view as a separator? Thanks

The Separators are set up to give access to the Mute, Solo and Recarm buttons when they are not in the following desired states:
Mute = ON
Solo = OFF
Recarm = OFF

To make them invisible put the buttons in the states listed above.
The Mute and Solo will still be accessible, but invisible.
The Recarm is only available when it's armed.

They are set up this way to make it easy to see if they were accidentally armed, soloed or not muted.

Once they are in the correct state, it's best to lock the track controls.

Ahh.. finally I get to find out why you know theming so well.
I've been curious about that.

I'm on vacation now, so I should have the update in a day or 2.
Something to keep busy with while in staying in.

Hi there! Themes Luna SE & Sesshin are quite nice for me. I will use them, I´m fan of dark blue colors, even light blue in the VU meters graphs. Nice that you...exist in this world, in this forum, Your master pieces are...unique for me. Thanks.

SALUDOS AL MUNDO.

Lucas,
Thank you for making this. This is, BY FAR, my favorite theme for Reaper. I just found it this morning (based off you answering one of my questions the other day.)

Absolutely AMAZING!! Thank you!

Tom

Default Love it...

...but the one thing that keeps me from using it is that the embedded FX GUI in the track cannot be the size I need. The track only allows a small view. This would be perfect but for that.

If you mean the MCP (mixer), I don't think I can control that.

If you mean the TCP, I may be willing to add an additional layout with the buttons and knobs all along the top like when the track is condensed or compacted.
This would leave the area below it available for the FX GUIs to expand or contract with the height/width of the track.

Really enjoy using this theme lucas_LCS. It's one of my favourites.

If you are looking for another theme to mod and because you are so good at adding a lot of refined function to already great themes, have you thought about maybe doing LCS-Smooth_6 (or LCS-mod_Smooth_6) - as long as it was ok with b0se of course?

That would be great! I don't want you to think I am demanding anything from a free theme, just making an observation. However, if such a change happened, It would be appreciated!
And thank you for all the great themes you have done for others.
