    Went thru a bunch, the one I’ve been using the last couple years and got used to is called Function.

    If you’re running a dual monitor setup, check out White Tie.

    ^

    I use the imperial too. Very good for dual monitors especially if they're large monitors.

    I have dual monitors, thank you. I will download imperial to check it out.

    I suggest giving it a few weeks.

    Reaper is currently beta-testing 6.0, they always revamp the stock theme when releasing a new update, I understand how themes work will change in 6.0 but I don't have that from a confirmed source, and I've seen some screenshots of what I THINK is 6.0 and it's a pretty clean, good looking skin.

    I don't know exactly when the release is, but it can't be long since they're up to 5.99 or so, and I'd rather wait and see what's coming than try to get used to a new theme that may or may not be compatible when the new one rolls out.

    Again, I haven't seen confirmed skins, nor do I expect to before release... But a 6.0 is coming, and in the fairly near term, and I do know for a fact that it's being beta tested by the community and there's evidently a 6.0 beta testers forum somewhere - an admin on the Reaper Users Group on facebook posted recently reminding users to keep all discussion about 6.0 features there, and anything alluding to 6.0 features and functionality would be deleted.

    That was a given for me anyway, it's my DAW of choice. I forget if mine expires after 5.99 or 6.99, but either way.

    My non-commercial says it expires when they move beyond 5.xx. Definitely my choice as well.

    It depends when you purchhase, though. You get two "major" releases with a license. I forget exactly how that shakes out, but I think I bought during 3.xx and had to update for 5.0, so I suspect its a 3.xx will cover you for all the 3.xx and 4.xx iterations. If so, I probably bought a new license after 5.0 so I'm good for 6.xx but will need a new one for 7.xx, but I'll need to go check.

    I did not know that. That means i will have to buy a new subs when the 7.0 comes out.
    I really liked the theme from the screenshots, I will give it a try when it comes out.

    As it happens, it was released last night. :lol:

    I got as far as downloading it and booting it up before I had to leave for work this morning. Same splash screen, some stuff has moved around (I only noticed because the last project I had open was a mp3 of Satriani's Summer Song I had at 90% of speed to practice the solo, and they replaced the playback rate slider with a knob in the corner), but it looks visually very slick.

    I messed around for a couple of hours today with 6.0 update and I really liked the changes, especially the layout.I will probably stick to the default theme for a while.
