Default Distinct theme

Edit: With REAPER 1.43 a new icon was added, for the metronome. Naturally this means an update to the distinct theme. There are now 4 different versions of the distinct theme:
- Distinct (The original)
- Distinct-greensolo (differs from the original by having a green solobutton instead of a red one; I have actually been convinced this is better and am using this theme myself)
- Distinct-recarm (uses a record arm button that is identical to the record button on the transport bar instead of the original R button)
- Distinct-recarm-greensolo (I think you can guess what this is)

Enjoy
/Rickard

Removed:Edit: With REAPER 1.32 the looks of the program was vastly improved, luckily enough only minor tweaks had to be done to my theme to make it look good in the new look (actually I've only changed 3 colors, the two new ones (backgrounds for faders during automation) and one of the 3d shading colors). The attached file is the new version 1.1 of the theme now! Enjoy!

Edit: This theme is now released in Version 1.0 (there is a separate relese that is exactly the same only with a green solobutton) Screenshot in this post now reflects the complete theme and not the firstlook image that was here previously. There is also a zip file containing both original version 1.0 and the greensolobutton theme. Enjoy and please tell me what you think.

To Justin: Feel free to add this theme to the reaper install file.

Removed:First looks at my new theme. Alot of work still to be done. The idea is to make an iconset where it is simple to see what kind of action will take place when pressing the buttons. The square buttons will be used for all toogleable things, be it 2 ways 3 ways or more. Round buttons will be used for popups. There will be some kind of special button shape for the Transport too.

Round and squarish icons now complete, but I still have to add symbols/letters to the icons. Still lot of work to be done, expect first version of theme in the next few days (maybe even today)

Version 0.2, some more icons created...

And the reason I am posting this is cause I like for people to comment on eventual changes to make the theme better.

Hey, nice theme. But here are some suggestions:

- The Square buttons dont't look good with the shadow at top and buttom. Shade it all the way around, so that they look flat but rounded (e.g. like the fx button). That would be better.

- The toolbar buttons look terrible. Maybe you should use one color (e.g. dark grey like one them). And you should redo the toolbar icons themself.

The E for envelopes isn't very obvious, maybe you could fit 'env' into the button. Same goes for folders, I don't think F is very easily associated with a folder and maybe an icon that looks a bit more like a folder would be more intuitive. Since the IO button cannot be toggled it could use a higher contrast coloring so it doesn't get lost in the background.

Keep up the good work.
