more good plans Albert...

I do have one wish, but of course it's your theme...

but both here and in Solaris Pro... where is says "AUX"... I wish is said "SEND" instead....

I know it's not a big deal, but SEND does correspond with reaper's wording, ...and for one, I think of AUX as one several possible ways of sending to other tracks....

such as sending to a VSTi track, as compared with sending to an actuall AUX track... you see what I'm saying?

Just a small thought... love your ongoing work!

Strong start, Albert.

Are you planning to do your own transport on this one? I ask because the elements from other themes hold me back from using solaris pro. It feels incomplete (I do note that you have labelled it as a beta release), so although I tried it out, personally, it affected my mojo a bit so I had to go back to another theme.

I appreciate all your hard work and sharing. This one is very appealing so far.

I hope you don't change it too much at all! It looks pretty beautiful to me right now. Very clean and appealing, with a really good sense of perspective.

I feel I am in no position to make requests, however, just for your consideration...

If the mixer area could accommodate two rows of tracks as an option, that would be very much appreciated.

Another beautiful theme. Like kindafishy, I'm in no position to ask, but will the mixer be re-sizeable? I like a lot more meter/fader and not so much FX/Send space. Another option would be a tall meter. I have no idea how much work it takes to create these beautiful themes, so you effort is greatly appreciated, I am just asking if possible.

is very difficult if not almost impossible to make a design of this type fully resizable ... Not that I do not want ... is the limitation of walter. The themes type default are completely different when it comes to work, and more limited

I had a feeling that was the case. Would you consider one where when the mixer is maximized the fader/meter was 2/3 of the height and the top 1/3 for the FX/Sends/Params? Again, I am not in a position to dictate any of this. I have two monitors with the Mixer on a separate one so this might be more my issue for how I like things to look. I also know that you are designing for the masses with lots of different configurations and settings, and given that you have to work with what works best for all. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I am amazed at the work that you guys do with the themes and truly appreciate your efforts. Thanks for the response and your amazing themes.

Overall, I like Solaris-Pro better. But, I like the dark background in the fader section. I wish that was an option in Solaris-Pro. I also like the inclusion of track width controls.

Will this theme see track levels in numbers unlike Solaris Pro? I missed the numbers next to the meter levels in the TCP. Looks incredible!

Automation buttons are very subdued.

I'm guess you never use those, because they provide very little feedback with dimmed, thin text.

There's really no need to replicate a bad console in this matter. The whole thing can be a button and a display with the only boring non-feedback image being the Read/Trim mode.

The WRITE mode has to scream at you because it's the most destructive of the bunch, Read can be friendly and a little subdued and Latch and Touch are somewhere inbetween.

This is a control just as important as arming a track. You need to spot the status at a glance, and it'll be changing a lot during a session, so make sure that works well.

Looking Neve-fine otherwise.

Why the labelling and vanilla buttons for Mute and Solo though ?

Do dimmed larger buttons for inactive states of yellow solo and red mute not work with tinted MCPs ?

This is really impressive!

How are folders/children represented?

For example, am I correct in that the mockup, track 9 is the parent of track 10? If so, what's the best way to recognize that? (It took me some careful inspection to realize that).

I personally prefer indenting children, but I realize that's just one way to do it. It is one of the things that keeps me from using some of the excellent themes out there, though. Just an old habit that is hard for me to break, I guess.
