Microtonic button states very hard to see

    I am colourblind and I have real problems seeing the button states in microtonic. In particular the instrument mute/solo states and the step buttons are very hard for me to distinguish.

    Is there any way I can change the colour palette to make it easier for me to see?

    thanks for any suggestions

    Hi Ian,

    There is no accessibility option to change the graphics in our products. It is however most often possible to "hack" them to change the graphics. On Mac this is much easier than on Windows as you can right click the .vst file in your plugins folder and "Show Package Contents". Now inside the folder you will find all the graphics resources as .png files. Just go ahead and change the images to something that works better for you.

    It is also possible on Windows, but as the images are resources inside the .dll file, it is a lot more tricky. There is however a way to do this without having to change the .dll file. Let me know and I'll put together a sample "patch" for you showing how it is done.
