M-Silk Theme (Updated for 2021.12)

Recommended Posts

My new Theme, 'M-Silk' is now available. I won't say much about this one, just check it out and you'll see more than I can describe here, I just hope the Meters don't put anyone off, I looked at the Meter Windows for both Track and Console view and thought, 'can I do something different with them for this Theme?', then had the idea of doing away with them altogether and making the unlit segments visible as a marker of where they are, not that we don't know, just that leaving the area blank felt a bit extreme. Enjoy!

Free Download Here... 'M-Silk' Cakewalk Theme

Each of my Themes take a minimum combined total of 150 hours to make, often more, then there's more time spent to keep them up to date whenever Cakewalk makes any changes/additions to the GUI,  I also don't really make all these Themes for myself, they're made more as a hobby and released as a generous offering to the Cakewalk Community for their choice to use, neither do I charge for them as Themes are generally free, so if you use any of my Themes, please consider sending a small tip for my time and effort, Thank You.  ❤️ https://paypal.me/MatthewJohnWhite 

(If you don't have a PayPal Account, you can still send a tip via PayPal, simply private message me an email address and the amount you wish to tip in GBP (as I'm based in the UK), I then have to request that amount from you via PayPal using the email address you provide, you should then receive a link from PayPal to enable you to fill in the payment details. Only PayPal will see and use your payment details for this one transaction, I will not use or forward any email address you provide me for this for any other use.)

Some nice ideas here. My theme has been a very slow 6 month work in progress & will be completed probably never.

Silly me forgot to check the grid lines on the 'Piano Roll View' and just found the major rules were barely distinguishable from the beat rules, if this affects you, please download again as I have fixed the issue. 🙂 (Note to self: Don't trust mental notes) 😆

It seems you've also been dabbling a bit into "string" theory. :ph34r:

Is that because the PRV grid lines look like strings or about something else? I didn't even know what string theory was until I just watched a video about it and now I'm wondering how it applies to my theme lol.

lol. It was a pun referring to the italicized track numbers in your screens shots.

Unless you photoshopped them, the only way I know to do that is edit the String line buried in the TTSRES file.

Well spotted that! I hadn't noticed and haven't changed anything. I'm guessing this may have been changed in a Cakewalk update as they look like that in all themes including Tungsten and Mercury yet the screenshots of these you see when you select the Theme show non-italic numbers, unless something weird has happened to my system. 🤷‍♂️

EDIT: Sussed it! The track view numbers are following font settings on my PC, I use Winaero Tweaker and have the font 'Cambria' Italic selected for everything other than system font.

... that was my 2nd guess. :D Still odd since each text line is assigned a font in TTSRES.dll.

Possible that track numbers missed the TTSRES list and appear to be Windows fonts.😢

I prefer them that way and wish that all the other Cakewalk text would follow my font settings, I think it would be good to have a choice.

Now updated for the change made in the 2021.12 release of Cakewalk, The 'Archive' button was changed in this version so would display incorrectly (shows half the button) if you're using this version of Cakewalk with a Theme which hasn't been updated for it.
