I managed to edit the coords file and renamend all the images. now everything is large except the knobs. They seem to be squeezed. Then I saved the 96x12288 knob file to 96x6144 (half the hight) and now they show up propperly. But of course they aren't Hi-Res anymore. I have the latest release and use the Ilkka Rosma Dark skin.

There is a dedicated OB-Xd theming thread viewtopic.php?f=1&t=471926

Windows won't use the @2x assets for now because it can't handle HiDPI as good as macOS but there will be a force high resolution option in the future as well as window scaling.

GUI enhancements will arrive in further updates, not 2.4.

It can't be freely resized, like some vector-based GUI's, but the skin creator can resize elements. I'm on Windows and found it a bit to small so I've made a larger, lighter version of the Ilkka Rosma skin that you can download here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/v4gtfdnl60fhh ... d.zip?dl=0

From memory, I believe this equates to about a 125% scale of that theme.

...and to your other question, from what I recall, this was more of an "inspired by" than a direct emulation. There's elements from the OB-X, OB-Xa, and OB-8 here, but 2Dat, the original developer, didn't own any of these but was more trying to create something with Oberheim vibes by combining features of all with a quality ZDF filter design.

Glad some folks are enjoying the theme.

George, up to you, but you're certainly welcome to include it if you like. I don't consider it "my theme" in any way and don't need credit. I just edited some colors and scaled things up a bit.

Hmmm, I'd have expected that clicking on the preset name in the preset bar would open a menu with a list of all presets. And that there'd be a ank select menu, as well?

Maybe good for 2.5? :)


(Sorry for not noticing this earlier!)

I still love the simplicity and contrast of the discoDSP classic theme. However, there is a bug in the new version: The "voices" digits in the global controls section are off. I resized voices.png in the skin's folder to 50%, now it looks fine. It had the same resolution as the voices@2x.png.
