WIf it ends up looking anything like that first beautiful 3D pic you posted, JUST WOW. I'm still using Analog API 4 as my main Reaper theme. I've gotten so used to it, the other themes are just confusing to me now.

2D or 3D... doesn't matter! That 2D version looks great. Can't wait to have something to download and play with.

2D is my favorite, thought it would be cool to still get the classic API knob shape.

Hi guys,

Yes I am still on it... it WILL be done!

just one of the last project on my to do list...

I am working on two additional layouts:
- recording oriented: with all the input and recording options generously displayed.
- mixing oriented: once everything is on tape, you can use this layout as you don't need all the input options and have space to display the insert/send/ parameters list.

hopefully I'll have a first ugly buggy laggy working version of the mixer in one or two months.
It will be done!

Oh dude, that sound fraking RAD! Recording and Mixing mode, *mind blown*. Will we have the 2d option like the first picture as well? Or 3d only? That 2d first pixture is the sexiest thing I have ever seen.
Thanks for your hard work bro. Great stuff. if you need any testing let me know. WT v5 and API are my two mains. So I am use to the old API theme and I am mixing and tracking about 30 hours a week right now.

If it looked exactly like this, I would be in heaven. Even the meters are perfect in my mind. I don't know what it is about API 2d or not 2d. But is smexy!

the very first beta fonctional version will look like this. I may publish it for testing purposes.

when everything will be waltered, we'll see about light shading, extreme 3d rendering or flat clean design.

Woooow @Pyer this is pure sexy. Love how its slick not overwhelming just pure API. If you can make this Theme also look amazing in 4K computer screens would be amaaazing. Really looking forward ;-)

Great job and thanks for your contribution

V.5 b06 - 01/12/17: big step: APIv5 is being waltered! for now only one layer, only all buttons off

From illustrator to photoshop and now from photoshop to reaper! Hello Walter, long time no see!

The next step: making all the png of the differnt states for all buttons, and then will have one fonctional layer, and there we could call it a first beta!

V5 b07 - 23-12-17 multi layout!

There is only one layout here, but it is quite flexible:

- it turns into a bus layout when the track is a folder
- it turns into a recodring layout when the track is armed

No sws required, it is just walter lines, image shifts and many magic tricks found in the books of the white wizard, thanks to him.

Next steps are:
- master track
- more layouts (fx/midi/vca)
- resizable
- and then beta available

Once again, a this point, no aestetic choices are made

Looks very very promising. First theme I see with decent KNOBS or designed stuff (more than decent ofc) for send controls and parameters in the mpc.

(I missed typing the object of what I was trying to say, sigh... too much eggnog I guess? )

V5 b08 - 30-12-17

Resizable

New layouts:
- RETURN (for reverbs and delays)
- MIX SESSION: when recording is over, you can get rid of the rec related buttons. this layout can turn into a bus layout when it's a floder
- FORCED LAYOUT: recording and bus (they are a part of the main layout, but they are forced to their state of recording or bus. usefull if you want to have the bus layout witout folder)




Next on my to do list:
- midi layout
- group layout
- vca layout
- master track

Wow, that looks like great functionality!

That's the V4 API in the TCP, I guess?

I wouldn't change a thing! I think you have the API vibe down perfectly! Can't wait until this is available.

V5 b09 - 01-01-18

3 more layouts:

- group & vca:
Repaer is awesome because one track can become so many things. The down side of it is that it can be misleading.
I think this is especially tricky with VCA and groups: they are not tracks, they are controlers. I think this fact can be clearer when all the unrelated fonction are taken off the layout, that's why there is no meter, routing or insert in those layouts: there is no audio or midi inside.

- midi:
Usefull when the track is only a midi source to send data to other tracks.
It can also be used as a generator track to load a multi output vsti (kontakt or any drums vst), with each outputs of the vsti sent to separated tracks
More recording related fonction apears when the track is record armed.

This is looking top flight. I used the old theme as a main for a long time. I will beta test anytime. I'm sure most folks would lol.

No TCP yet, it's still api4's TCP.

TCP is a different story with a lot of solutions to be found because I don't want it to be a weird and twisted adaptation of the MCP.

For the MCP
I still have to work on the master meter and then I will release a beta version with v5MCP and v4TCP, mainly for test purposes.

The most beautiful and professional looking theme I've came across. Very, very impressive!

Pyerbass, can you give an estimation when this V5 theme is ready for use?


Thumbs up and keep up the good work!

Ready to use?

...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Good one!

Lol no seriously
I don't count the days since it started so I would not count the days before the release

A first beta testing version will be available very soon, with only the new MCP (the other parts will be from teh previous version)

A great thanks for you kind comments! It feels good to know that I don't do this only for me
