Hi, just loaded the iro+pastel into my default color set. The colours are very nice, thanks to Seyoum and Tyrcian! I can access the full list using the colour tool in the arrangement page, but in the mixer, the color list now stretches so far to the right that most colours are out of the screen’s range… how do you get to the other colours?? I would like to assign the same colours that I used in the arrangement page for VST instruments etc. to their respective output tracks in the mixer…
By the way, is it possible for me to change the order in which the colours appear in the list? I would prefer to have the default Cubase colours in the top of the list. Is it as simple as changing the order of the entries in the defaults.xml file?
Hi sorry for the late reply! I would experiment with moving the order. As for the mixer problem this is clearly an issue to do with Cubase, guess they didn’t anticipate for so many colours to be used. You’ll just have to change the colour in the arrange page for now.
Mine show up with the Cubase default colors first so yes I would try changing the order. I too find the color list outdated and obviously Steinberg wasn’t ready for something as elaborate as this. The only work-around I know of is once you click on the color list you can use the up/down arrows that scroll through the colors which are 10x faster than using a mouse and holding it down while it scrolls.
Even though Tyrcian’s download link doesn’t work anymore, you can still get the pastel colors by pasting these into your Defaults.xml file.
I highly recommend doing so. The default color palette in Cubase 8.5 is way too neon-bright and saturated for my taste. These colors are much more relaxing to look at. Plus you have a lot more to choose from!
By any chance do you have yours combined with seyoums colors. I have them both combined, but can’t remember how I did it unless someone combined it. Or maybe I screwed with an XML file? I don’t remember.
