And similarly, I have started another theme called Magma:

 
based on this:

 
It's much more contrasted and aggressive, but I liked the idea...
About 50% finished.

Like many myopic people, it's not easy for me to see in the dark. That's why Tunsgten is just unusable for me (although it's a beautiful theme). The solution could be the color strips, but Cakewalk don't want this feature anymore (thank you for the downgrade)... Among all the great features of the recent years, the color strips were certainly the one which helped me most to be productive...
 
So I'm back to Mercury. Not looking very modern but efficient, clear and including practical color strips. That must be what Cakewalk calls innovation.

The color strips were difficult to implement in the Theme Editor for some reason, hence the reason they're not in Tungsten. I too hope that colored tracks can be restored for custom themes.

I personally find the way strips are colored in Tungsten (along the bottom in CV) to be great and ready to use. I like that it retains the overall darkness. I don't find it hard at all to find which track I'm looking for.

Sorry to insist, but any opinions on my Iceberg theme? This is my first theme, so... I'm anxious to know 
 
The Magma theme is just work in progress and was more fun to make than it is actually usable, but you may comment on it too if you'd like.

@Joe_A
Are you replying to me?
I haven't made the Iceberg theme available yet, I'm just showing to you guys to get your opinion...
 
Oh, OK, you were talking about the Magma theme... Just seen your reply!
Thanks! I'll try to finish it within a reasonable frame of time...

I in no way want to discourage you, but personally I'm not really into blue.

Greetings,
I find the Tungsten theme an excellent theme and I did a few color highlights using the preferences tab. Like many users I am very busy with recording and producing and I haven't got the time or the desire to change the look of my program. Maybe if the process was streamlined and quick to use I might spend a few minutes coloring things a bit but with the current process it's just too labor intensive.

I agree Blackish. If you could easily change the accent colour in the tungsten theme (which some users have actually done in some themes) without having to change individual pieces, that would be much more useful to someone like me with limited skill in graphic manipulation (or seeing colour for that matter.)

I'm actually secretly hoping someone is hard at work creating the next greatest theme, but they're waiting on the big reveal until it's complete!

Default Mercury here. 
 


...and the lighter over-all look is easier for me to read...

Tungsten is nice to look at, but Mercury lets me see where I'm going...

I find that I use a bright theme during the day and a darker theme at night. This helps my vision very much so I'm glad we have the option.

My Iceberg theme is blue AND green !
Well... granted, there's more blue than green...

I've been chipping away at mine since creating the new Control Bar. I'm not sure it's gone quite where I intended it, but I prefer it every time I flip back to the others.

Is everyone aware that there's an area for themes to be displayed and made available for sharing on the Software forum in the very first thread.

Please PM me so I can arrange to have your them included.

We will be splitting out the themes into their own sticky thread shortly.

Thanks. Please help spread the word. If you see a theme somewhere let me know so we can put it where it belongs for easy finding.
