Default MPH V5 Themes (5 Variations) Info

I started learning about editing / customizing themes during the V5 Pre cycle... It was fun to be creative in a different arena that was also beneficial to my musical goals. I hope someone can get some use out of these themes or at least get some ideas for their own themes...

*A very special thanks to White Tie for the Default V5 theme and all of the instructions and documentation!

I used the Default 5.0 Nitpicky Edition as a starting point and tweaked from there... Thank you Lokasenna for your efforts!

*All 5 of these theme variations share the same layouts and features.

Notes:
⦁ I customized all of the main elements (and most of the other elements, too...)
⦁ There are some subtle moving parts built into some of the elements. I hope they don't offend the too serious REAPER user! B)
⦁ I squared most (if not all...) of the round elements
⦁ I only used the large layout size elements
⦁ I used the same elements in all of the TCP & MCP layouts
⦁ I removed the record mode & input FX elements from the TCP & MCP layouts
(*These can be easily accessed by right clicking on the track's meter or record arm button)
⦁ I moved the track record arm in the MCP from the volume background
(*Same for the settings button in the Master MCP)
⦁ The MCP record input, pan label and volume label are visible at all heights
⦁ MCP & Master MCP have options for silver, *black and *red faders
(*From the Default V5 theme's Session Mixer layouts)
⦁ The TCP layout elements do not move / jump around when resizing the TCP vertically
⦁ The Track title font is now WALTER font 8 in the Theme development / tweaker
⦁ The Toolbar Icons have no borders unless selected (Thanks again for the link, Pet!)

***I'm leaving the Arrange & MIDI Editor background color / darkness up to the user's preference (the Stealth theme's look great with a dark Arrange - RGB: 30 30 30) Just use the Theme development / tweaker to pick your poison... Go to the top menu: Actions > Show actions list > Filter > (type in) theme > Double click on 'Theme Development: Show theme tweak / configuration window'.

Customized Layouts:
Master TCP (designed to match the TCP Layouts):
⦁ Standard

Here's a shot of the MCP Strip layout in the MPH V5 Bold theme.



The Strip layouts in the Default V5 theme use the flow system (like in the TCP layouts), which makes for easy tweaking. The Strip layout is like a vertical version of a minimized TCP layout...

Did a quick update to the MPH V5 Bold theme. I noticed the IO / routing element color didn't match the default color of the other elements. Updated pics, too...
