Studio Instruments Themes

Recommended Posts

Interesting, I had no idea that the SI user interfaces could be modified so that even the position of each control could be changed through an external text file. It’s not very often you see plugin developers go to that length to make these kind of modifications possible, but apparently Cakewalk did at one time.

Great job, you must have put a lot of time and effort into this.

More than I care to think.  Cake made these too easy to  have fun with tho there were some limitations. The cwres files are nothing more than ini files with fancy file extensions.

I was getting an error message about unable to load a bitmap with the Bass Guitar theme.  I did not get the same error message with the Drum Kit theme.  After the error message, the instrument VST would still appear, but it wasn't quite right.

Hey sorry to hear that. I am replicating the problem here too. Thanks. Fix on the way.

 

EDIT:

Should be fixed now but let me know if not.

These look just great, and for whatever reason, your Background.bmp is allowing me to float the program browser so that I can see all the different available instruments, which is a really handy thing that I can't do with the stock one.

I love everything about the look of the Drum Kit, but adjusting the knobs and sliders in the mixer is taking some getting used to. Not so much that I'd consider going back to the stock graphics mind you. I sometimes have trouble finding the hot spot for the volume controls for some reason.

Great work. This will make me more likely to reach for these.

Thanks SK. I find with a little tweaking here and there, SI plugins are very usable. The drum volumes take a little getting use to but little I could do about that.

Do tell more as my themes shouldn't be affecting anything but appearance.

Hold the cursor anywhere over the volume slider and drag left to (-) and right to (+). Double click to return to default (70%).

For Pan & Tune drag cursor up to move right and down to move left.

Sorry, should have read "your Background.bmp inspired me to experiment with floating the program browser so that I can see all the different available instruments." 😂

I could have sworn I tried it with the original UI. Oh well, thanks for getting me to bumble my way into it.

Yeah, it was always float-able, tho I've always had to stretch it downward to get the scroll bar to show.
