IMHO it actually still is, but this kind of stuff is rather subjective, isn't it? ^^

Definately one of the nicest attempts so far. But still a case of "nice face, shame about the rest". There's so many things GUI-wise screaming for attention that it looks awfully busy and distracting. Definately some good quality design skill in there, but sadly it's lost in an incredibly crushed interface. just imho. :|

It looks a little less ugly, but ugly nonetheless. I'd say the prettiest looking reaper GUI was done by whitetie (not released yet).

Yeah, I find it uglier than before, but to each their own.

[edit] just had a look at the Cockos forum, I'm glad to see advanced theming put in. And I like the Coffee & Cream 2 skin much better than the one posted above.

Not bad, not bad, 6/10. :)

But let me ask a stupid question. :clown: If the REAPER developer is as rich he could 'buy out Steinberg from Yamaha' why not hire a good (or the best!) graphic designer studio (e.g. BitPlant) to make the most slickest überGUI what a Host can have? :shrug: This is still in the the mediocre range IMHO. :oops:

Come on people - it is just an example - think about all the new possibilities ! :roll:

I like it - well done

I particularly like the square button icons. One of the best icon sets - definitely

Going to d/l and install

I have not seen the extent of the new skinning capabilities, but I hope the long-term plan is to make the layout fairly open to the complete rearrangement of layout and controls. I find some of the control areas, like the mixer, a bit jumbled together.

Hmm.. since when did "pretty graphics"/skinning = GUI? GUI = graphical user interface. I thought the UI part included such things as, layout, control, behavior to mouse/keyboard input etc.

I think those screens are way too busy and distracting. Kind of reminds me of why I don't like the GUI of Sonar at all.

Cheers!
