Seyoum has been extremely generous by sharing his knowledge with the community.........and I thank him!

Others have added additional colors to their color scheme but are not sharing them with us!

Does anyone else want to share their colors, as well? Or possibly explain how it's done, so we can all jump in and help the community?

Sure, I'll chime back in, as I've done this myself.

I haven't altered any lately, so I have none to share that top what Seyoum has provided, but we can all continue either from using his or the stock ones.

1. In the toolbar at the very top, right click in the drop down menu and check 'Color Menu' [if not done already].

It will appear as a grey box with a small down arrow at the right of it.
[If you have 'Show Tips' selected in the 'General' section of the Preferences, it will show 'Select Colors' when you hover your mouse over it.]

2. Click on that down arrow & the drop down menu will display 'Default Color' [to click on to change the current track color], followed by all the colors currently available, followed by 'Project Colors...' down at the bottom.

3. Click 'Project Colors...' and it will expand.

4. If you click on any existing color, a color palette window opens whereby you can drag to a new shade or tone vs. the 'Current Color' and click 'New Color', and it will then be saved as is.

5. Otherwise, if you click on 'Options' at the bottom, another menu pops up.

6. Click 'Append New Color', and a white box named 'New Color' will be added at the bottom. [You could also click on 'Insert New Color Before Selection' to place it elsewhere.]

7. Click on the white box to shade it any color you like using the color palette.

8. Click 'New Color'.

9. Click to the right to rename it, ie: Piano, Guitar if you like color consistency between projects. That way you won't have to guess or remember what you used before. :?

10. Click to the right of the new name to continue on with others or click 'OK'.

*However, 'OK' only saves this for the current song [project].

So...instead,

11. Click 'Save Current Set As Program Defaults'.

One of the other options is 'Load Program Defaults To Current Set' to use with other projects.

It's a good idea to set up a song [project] template with this as well.

That should do it.

Really nice Seyoum!

Colors look even richer once loaded into the DAW.

Thanks again.

And for those of you who aren't fully familiar with the colours section:

You can rename any of the colours by double clicking on them. So if you have a standard working practice for instance you could have the greens for "verse 1", reds for "intro" and so on. Lots of possibilities of how you can use the naming of colours. For instance if I have repeated midi loops in a project & I've edited one of them I may use a lighter red but have the colour named as "Variation 1".
Something for you to think about.

Thanks for expanding on this Neil.

I have that in my details 10 posts up in item # 9, but unless someone reads all the way through it, they might not know this, so I think it's good that you have it separated in detail here.

Hey Buds - I don't want to knit-pick or get into the details of semantics

...but...

I was reading through this thread again, and I've noticed 4 different times that 'Seyoum' has been spelled wrong. [ie: Sayoun, etc.]

Now it may not be that big a deal...but...with all due respect, Seyoum has gone to great lengths to do this & share it with us all.

So...could we not at least honour him in return within our thank you posts by also making sure we get the spelling of his name right?

Seems only fair & reasonable doesn't it? :)

I see in your initial picture you assigned each shade to a different track. Is there a way to assign different shades of colors to multiple tracks within a folder? For example I have all my synths in a folder, and want all my synths to be blue, but not all the same blue. Do I have to manually select each one, or is there a way to assign "multiple shades" of a color to multiple tracks?

I must admit, MOTU digital performer is MUCH better at coloring tracks. Steinberg should take a look at how they do it and base a new system off that method IMO.

Hello Seyoum,

This is fantastic.
Since you are more focused on user needs and less in "selling the next update" can you also develop a proper "bounce in place" 8-) 8-) :D :D :D :D :D

On the contrary, it demonstrates that some things are already highly customisable, but that only some people can be bothered to make use of this. Fortunately, this one is also happy to share his work!
