    Philter - thanks for sharing these. I tried Blues Brothers and ESX1. Both are really nice though I am partial to Blues Brothers right now. Nice combination of colours and lightness/Darkness. Very nice work. Thank you and much appreciated.

    Nice work philter. Thanks for sharing, I like the scatched up bluesbrother the best.

    Great skins, guys! I am using darkone, but would love to have a bright one that is really smooth looking. The bright ones so far didnt impress me so much.

  • larserik

    I've started work on a new skin. Aiming for some soft pushbuttons and Oberheim-Sem-ish metal backplate. Still a log way to go, might end up somewhere else..

    Thank you guys, but I've come to a dead end with this skin.

    Too bad, it looks sweet!

    Fredrik- I have used several skins (including one of Larserik's excellent (Darkone) skins. In the end though I keep coming back to the factory default skin, which offers a great balance of clarity and function. Really a great skin. The one thing I would request (and I might be the only one) is for an easy way for a dummy like myself to change colours on the factory skin. What I would consider perfect would be numeric entries for text, foreground and background (I'll show my age and reference the method that was used in Daiichi Synth 1 for those old enough to remember that). I understand that there is a huge appeal to creating and having photorealistic skins and would not want to discourage that capability. I just would like the option to "tweak" some colours in an easy way when the mood strikes. When you guys have nothing else to do.....😉😁

    tonicA mk2 with more color, upgraded panel lines and dark faders.

    Thanks I will definitely do so! Awesome Larserik!

  • Fredrik Lidström

    ha, nice one. I see you worked your way around the one-knob-animation problem. 😊

    Thanks AAV. There's been a lot of opinions about the default skin over the years. I've kept tweaking it and improving it but trying to stay with the same layout and estetics. Some love it, some hate it. Which is why the alternative skins are a great addition.

    A color theme function inside the plug-in would be cool, but as you mentioned, it would need to use more vector and less photorealism. It's possible to tweak and colorize the original images and make additional skins. I suppose one of the easiest ways is to do hue/saturation with colorize in Photoshop and macro it to run the same adjustment on all png files.

    Yes.. I had this heap of renders from yesteryear laying around so this was fun to try out.

    Hey Larserik! I loaded up your TonicA mk2 skin. It's really a thing of beauty, like a whole new plugin. I find the balance between the metallic "instrument" itself and the colour elements (knobs, led's) to be just right. Really great work! Thanks for sharing!

    Good to hear that you like it, I'm quite happy with it myself. Brings a more accented look and "feel" to the UI compared to the first version imho.
