also noticed something strange with NI VC6 plugins.
When in side chain mode, CPU usage constantly slowly rises, goes from to 5-6 % to 100 % in a few minutes.
Memory leak ?

OK here's mine:

Mine is subdued rather than dark - I find the darker skins tend to compensate by using too many bright colours so mine is less dark but more tonally balanced

On a few of the new presets themes, the arming track buttons look very pale, I'd prefer a "rgb(255,0,0)" that cuts though everything, a real eye grabber.

The new themes are good though, thanks Dev's!

Just updated to add transparency to the audio track colour so it picks up the track colouring better, and slightly lightened the midi clip

Any chance we can get more contrast for the disabled device name text in the MIDI, Audio and Control Surface pages? Basically at present disabled items are displaying really-light-grey on slightly-lighter-grey and as a result are almost completely unreadable.
(Its -slightly- more readable in the Control Surfaces page, because the font seems larger, but on the other two, barely so.)

^^^ I noticed it and tried different ways to resolve but to no avail. The color of those text seems to be hard-coded. Only way is to change the color of the backgrounds (panels).

Anyone know how to change the red box in the rack filter? I think it's hard coded. Not much choices given to decorate the texts/fonts. The colors of text change to black/white depending on the contrast of the element underneath.
It would have been wonderful if the color scheme editor was detached. Going back and forth to other tabs to see the result is a pita and time consuming. Does the blue/red/yellow/green buttons have any significance? I wanted to keep them same color but decided against it. Now I see many skins are using same or totally different shades. So I guess it's okay. Please note I don't use it much for making music so don't know the operational/functional aspect of it.

Another thumbs up here for the gamecat theme - I find darker themes much easier to stare at for hours on end.

Does anyone know how to define color swatches for tracks/clips?
