Default Bender Theme

Bender is a theme I made for my mastering studio, because I was in need of a professional looking and clean theme. The default theme is very well made so I based my theme on it, just removed a lot of colors and made it look simpler. Fader caps by Nick Moritz.

v4.3 - Now with red and white fader caps available in mixer panel and track panel. Bug fixes.

v4.2 - Theme updated with new mixer panel layouts and also some bug fixes.

v4.1 - Theme updated with new track panel layouts. Bug fixes.

v4.02 - New colors, fader caps and toolbar buttons.

v4.00 - Initial release.

You can download the latest version in the stash: https://stash.reaper.fm/theme/1036/Be...ReaperThemeZip

Thanks for sharing, first of all. I'm using it in the moment and find it really comfortable and easy to handle.

Thanks again!

Theme updated with new track panel layouts. Bug fixes.

https://stash.reaper.fm/theme/956/Bender%20Theme

The file still says v4.02 but it's the new v4.1, I don't know how to change that on the stash.

Can't wait! I love the large mixer view. If it had that, it'd be my default!

That's be awesome if that envelope lanes followed the same
Color scheme.

This theme is my choice from all the themes currently available; great work! It's clean, and may not have the best eye-candy, but it seems to keep everything clean and easy to work with.

I'm anxious for the next version with multiple mixer layouts. Seperators would make it perfect for me!

Soooo nice and cool to the eyes. How can I get the dual pan layout in the screenshot? Can't seem to find it; stuck in single pan mode.

It's in the project settings, there you can choose the pan settings for each project.

You'll need to change the master mixer layout to "Stereo Pan" also.

Bender...you might find this entertaining, but...I just read your thread and and as I saw the theme. I'm oooing and aaaahing.....I went right in and downloaded it and as I bring it up and look at it I'm thinking....waitaminut....there's nothing different from the one I'm using now.....DUUUUH. It was the one I was using. Evidently, I read about this theme a while back and had the same thoughts then.

This truly is the best theme IMO.

Question - Can you change the Master fader colour? Or could that be a future update

Legend.

I do have one issue though. Minor. When I select a track, it's hard to tell what track I've selected because I feel the selected track could be hightlighted a bit lighter.

I have quite alot of tracks in my template and I use the track mamanger to quickly scroll and select tracks. It takes me a good few seconds to recognise where the selected track is in the mixer. It's just a bit hard on the eye. I went back to the default to compare and it's much easier to recognise what track is selected because the highlight is brighter. Is it possible to change this my self? If not, I am putting in a request that when you select a track, the highlight is brighter. Right now it's just quite close to the same colour that all the non selected tracks are, to me at least.
