Hi Rotund,

Somehow I´m not able to with the new scheme. I can´t change/add/etc. anything. There is no "select colors" or "options" here with me. Strange... But hey, good for you!

Oh well, at least I know how to add colors the way Steinberg thought of it. Now I have all the colors I want, which is great!

Only this doesn´t work for the one project I experimented on with this new scheme. That´s stuck in there and I can´t seem to change it. :lol:

You must be doing something wrong as it works perfect here , you just have to click al the way down through the preset colours and it comes up with an option box at the bottom . Works fine here on win7 64

Oh I probably am, but again (and this time see the picture): that´s I get all and like I said, default doesn´t do a thing.

But it´s no big deal, I got what I want.

So it´s OK.., OK..., OK...., OK....., OK......, OK....... (ping pong delay at 124 BPM ;) )

Hahaha! I was scrolling and nothing happened. I feel a bit daft now.

Ahaaa, so you can also click on a mouse. That explains why I never got beyond that Windows landscape on my PC after turning it on.

Seyoum,

Thank you so much for all the work involved and for making this available to Cubase users.

The CPR file available from your website works great. Very easy to get the colors in place as defaults.

Colors

Post by Morganix » Mon Apr 28, 2014 1:14 pm

Iro's "Track Color Pack for Cubase" works flawlessly. It is also possible - like before - to add more colors to the palette, as has been discussed.

However, I wonder if anyone know what the color-codes in the xml-file mean, and how they relate to Hex- or RGB-values.

For example: Iro's color "Red 1" has the value 4278190080. I took a screen-shot and checked it in Photoshop, which says that the Hex/RGB values are:

Hex : FF2222

R : 255
G : 34
B : 34

So, is there any method of converting Hex or RGB values to the standard used in the xml-file..?

Thanks for this, it looks really nice. I have already added 3 more sections to it:

Pink, Brown and Baby Blue. I might add more and then once I am done I could send you the blank CPR and if you want you could post the new version on your site.

Yes, many thanks for your efforts and for sharing Seyoum..! These are great - so glad you included some 'greys' too.. ;)

This works for new projects; how would I go about applying the colours to older/existing projects please..? (or, is that actually possible..?)

1. Open old song

2. Click color menu

3. Scroll to the bottom and click Project Colors

4. Click Options

5. Click -> Load Program Defaults to Current Set.

6. Click OK.

Done. It will completely destroy your colors that you currently have so be prepared to re-choose a color for all tracks when you do this.

Thanks, looks good.
now that we have so many colors is there a way to open the color set in 2 or more rows, instead of scrolling down to invisible colors at bottom ?

Very good one.

I want/need to know the same, because I'm currently based on the original colours adding new flavours to the color set and would really appreciate if I could add them simply by means of XML.

On the left hand side of your track (to the left of its name) in the project window, press ALT + Mouse. The colours are displayed horizontally as before. That works for the whole track, but if you want to change the colour of just 1 part in your track.........., well I'm not at my music rig at the moment.

Thanks Seyoum - great bit of work.

I believe the color codes in the XML are probably RGBA written in C. But basically there is no magic to this. I actually made all the colors inside cubase. I am most certanly no l33t haxor dude! :p If you want to edit colors or add new ones I think the easiest way is to do it inside Cubase.
