More than one skin at a time for organization?

Postby nathanfurst » Sat Apr 02, 2011 10:39 pm

I'd like to be able to select different skins for different purposes.
For example, if on a single channel strip I have a pre-amp, eq, and compressor, I'd like to have a different skin for each one.

When I click on the "MAST" tab, the last selection is "*SKIN", which can be changed with the slider. Unfortunately, it doesn't stick, even after save.

Is there a way to do this? Manually renaming skins "overwrite me" is so tedious.

first of all, the skin is a global parameter, so if you choose nebula reverb for example, it will always have the chosen skin ( i don't know why changing and saving in mastpage doesn't keep it, here it works).

but you could copy the nebula dll and xml, and give it a new name (the same obviously :) ).
this way you can have different skins, for different tasks.

I should have mentioned that I"m on a mac. What would the mac equivalents to a Dll and XML file be?

thanks.

do you work with the au-version or the vst-version?

for me the duplicating and renaming works only with the vst on mac.

you should find it here:
mac hardrive/library/audio/plugins/vst/acustica

files: nebulareverb.vst and nebulareverb.xml
system 1: windows 8 32 bit - samplitude prox, tracktion6, reaper
system 2: mac osx yosemite - reaper(32+64bit), tracktion6(32+64bit)

Note if you try this, that the new Nebula Server does not support multiple Nebula instances.

I've become very used to my split category library & different skins & settings for each instance but now have to go back to a single instance if I want to try out local server to replace Jbridge.

Giancarlo did say maybe it was possible by creating a separate server for every Nebula but this is getting way too complex with all the copying & renaming & xml editing required for every update.

+1, it's a seemingly small request but it has the capability to really speed up workflow in many scenarios.

I have done this and I think in a good way...

and have provided two sets of skins where each of the GUI's include a name, like Compressor, Reverb, etc.

My sets have about 24-27 skins each with those names

You can find them and a pdf that tells a way to do exactly what you want on the reaper.fm stash... just search in the 'untagged' category on the stash and find the Neb. skins by hopi

here is a starter link there for you:
[url]
http://stash.reaper.fm/v/19350/HOPI%20- ... ns%201.rar[/url]

because of the sized, this set comes in 3 rar files and you will want to get all 3

and here is another link:

just wrote up a pdf guide to doing this and you might find it useful... it's easy step by step.

download it from here.

ps there is also a link at the end of the pdf to get the full named series of my MIDNITE skin series. :)
