How do those garish greens - especially in the icons and metering - stay out of the way? Try out RADO Theme Pack or the aforementioned Janne for something much more subdued and tasteful.neverbeeninariot wrote: ↑Mon Jan 07, 2019 8:01 amIt's funny though, when I'm working in Reaper, I just want the UI to stay out of the way and default 5 does that, but in Bitwig I kinda like the bling...Liero wrote: ↑Mon Jan 07, 2019 7:12 amI'm continually annoyed and/or surprised that REAPER still has a dedicated UI/graphics person who in my opinion just has a very bad sense of what looks good and is easily readable, making the DAW in its default state the ugliest of the "big" programs out there.
The default theme colors and icons are just a horrible mess to my eyes.
Luckily there are themes to choose from - my favorite has been RADO for about five years straight.
One of my main problems with default reaper is also the rather large amount of contrast between the brighest and darkest elements of the UI, which also happens to be the main difference to the other big DAW's, including Bitwig, which are much more restful to the eye in that regard.
