AC DA 5.22 with New Knobs and Faders for 2020.04

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I agree,  partly because I have experimented with this for a while...However, I often do things for a reason of my eye sight and habits and don't mind making an option.

And then, I get obsessed...So, here are 4 Options!  LWOL!

.1 Pointer line with Numbers     -  .2   "0" with Numbers - .3   No  Numbers  -   .4   Faint line with numbers (my preference)

I also corrected (darkened) shadows of all  other knobs to match the darkness of the Pan.

...all 4 should be in that folder...

Huh..  I'm torn between the thicker line and the "C"

Just a thought: maybe you could offer the theme to others in a modular fashion--for example, the base theme with variant overrides.

For variants just upload a separate zip folder with the extra knobs & faders. Then the user can customize his own theme & save each one the way he likes.

+1 for Knobman! 😁

5.22  Black  EQ  and Tube knobs more contrast.    5  Pan options marked clearly to download.

It's super easy to download and then change versions on the fly,    so I chose to keep making separate themes for the Pan variations for now.

Darkening all knobs the other day had a negative affect on the Black knobs that I chose to put no perimeter markers around...I like the variety, but had to lighten them.

What Adam did with the C and the pan readouts is more of a feature upgrade to me than just skinning. It adds a function that isn't there in Mercury and Tungsten.

And @Adam Compeau, it's time to update the Author and Description fields to say that you're the author, and that it was based on Jeremy Habetler's Dark Aqua. IMO, you've more than earned it. And really, his theme was based on the Glow effect, which looks cool except that I couldn't use it because I had a hard time telling active states from inactive states.

"Clean up on isle 6!"  ha...

I soon will be cleaning up some of the Browser tabs, especially under the Plugins tab where the glow effect makes things a bit blurry and some of the fonts are the wrong color.

I don't mind the main browser tabs, but I have to decide if I want them the same color scheme as the new Inspector tabs if possible.

The midi inspector needs some color and contrast correction of buttons also as seen in the attached picture.

Personally, I like the use of black + gray to help draw the mind-eye towards important features/elements.  I like the way you have done this here!  Super nice!

Version 5.25 http://www.mediafire.com/folder/yl5dr3tcce30x/AC_DA_-_5_Pan_Options

Corrected Midi  Inspector Buttons. 

I also corrected the inconsistent default and roll over colors of the Browser Plugins Tab..  I made the selected glow word of "Instrument" a little less blurry....futher modifying these tabs made them less attractive and not blending as well with surrounding elements.  So, the Inspector tabs are different..that's not necessarily a bad thing... 🙂
