Hi, just bought this synth and I have searched in tone2's forum but no luck. The "skin" link they provided was not avail any more. So I'd like to seek for your advise that if there is any 3rd party skin for their synths (in my case Electra2 / Galdiator 2.5).

Thanks!

No. There isn't. However, with res hacker you could try to make your own.

There are for Saurus but not for those two you mentioned, unless I am mistaken. https://www.tone2.com/html/arpeggiator.html

Scroll down on that page to see those two skins I mentioned about.

Knobs still look ugly and wrong. Those weird light reflections are completely absurd.

LOL...

Tried to open the dll (after backing up ofcourse), changed the PNG's a bit, saved the dll and it worked :party:

knobs, light fx and text are all pre-baked :x

I don't like their GUI's. Icarus is somewhat okay-ish..but no. I am using their synth mainly for the sound... :D

I agree that the shiny/reflection part of the knobs are a bit much. The original Saurus knobs look better.

There were some optional blue knobs for the white skin that looked better. Actually those skins that are with the arp soundset may not work with v2.5.

It's better, but not much better than the original.

Yes, the original looked way better. That's not just the fact the reflection is too much. It is plainly wrong. If it's a reflection, it should appear in ALL knobs in the same place, independently of what they are pointing to, not chaging from one knob to the other. This is a beginners mistake.

If there is a reflection it means there is a light source, and that light source causes the reflections to appear in the same position for ALL knobs that are being lighted no mater the position of the knobs themselves.

Yes, the original looked way better. That's not jest thje fact the reflection is too much. It is plainly wrong. If it's a reflection, it should appear in ALLK knobs in the same place, independently of what they are pointing to, not chaging from one knob to the other. This is a beginners mistake.

If there is a reflection it means there is a light source, and that light source causes the reflections to appear in the same position for ALL knobs that are being lighted no mater the position of the knobs themselves.
I found a screenshot of the skin with the blue knobs. I like it much better this way than with the shiny controls.
