The Theme switcher

This drop down menu lists all the themes you have at your disposal while the disc icon indicates what theme is currently applied in Logic Pro. To apply a new theme select the one of your choice from the drop down list and click Colorize at the bottom right of the window. Little Tip : If you like the color of an element from another theme, select the original theme from the selector, navigate to and select the element of your choice, copy its color value ⌘ + C go to your new theme (the element will remain highlighted but is now corresponding to your target theme) copy using ⌘ + V.

The Search Field

This search field filters the elements to be displayed inside the table. For instance if you want to change the background without having to browse manually, make sure the search option is set to “text” or “exact match” and type in “Channel strip background”. You can also filter the table by color values using the R,G,B or Hex options (you can get the values from the color palette both in Hex or RGB).

The GUI Elements Table

The Colorizer lists each element of logic’s graphic interface inside this “table”, these elements are grouped inside their relative interface section. You can think this grouping as folders containing multiple sub-folders. In this example we are accessing the bottom color value of the track header : Window > Tracks > Track Header > Background.

  • Logic Pro UI Element : Element’s folders & names accessible through the search field
  • Type : Only implemented for safety porpose when customizing skins. It indicates if the Element is of source type (safe) or image type (destructive). When working with themes it is safe to change color of image types at will.
  • Color : Currently displays the allocated value of the element. Click the thumbnail to open the color palette and assign a new color of your choice. All changes from the color palette are dynamically applied to the element color value. If you would like to revert to the previous value use the Undo function ⌘ + Z. The new color will only refect in Logic once you click :
  • Customizing Logic’s palette

    The color toolbox of logic can be edited direcly from the colorizer’s palette window. To open the window select Menu > Window > Palette or press ⌘ + 2.

  • Color Schemes: Color schemes are ready made colors for the palette and are avalable from the top left drop-down menu. The gear cog button allows you to import other schemes or export and share them with other users on the forum.
  • + & -: Add & remove rows from the color grid. Rows range from 3 minimum up to 5 maximum.
  • Base Brightness: defines the brightness range of the palette.
  • Brightness Diff: tweaks the brightness values across each rows inside the base range.
  • Base Saturation: defines the color saturation range of the palette. Bring the value down to 1 to get a plain white color.
  • Saturation Diff: tweaks the saturation values across each rows inside the base range.
  • The Color Palette

    Use the palette to define colors for your themes, build & access theme palettes, pick colors from Logic, find RGB & Hex values.

    The color wheel view gives a cricular graphic representation of the color spectrum, drag your mouse over the wheel and adjust the tone (brightness/shade) with the bottom slider.

    The color sliders view provides the code information about the currently selected color. You can use this code to seach the LPX Colorizer table, using Red, Green, Blue (R,G,B) : 72,73,231 or Hex : 4749E7 encoding.

    The Palette view gives you access to all the colors defined in you themes. The dropdown menu at the top lists all the themes of LPX Colorizer. The number of occurences correspond to the number of UI elements set to this color. This view helps batch colouring themes via the Find and Replace function as it dynamically gives you an idea on the overall look of your theme.

    The opacity sliderwill make you color more or less transparent, however bear in mind that it will blend with the the color of the element behind such as backgrounds behind buttons.

    This section gives you quick access to colors. You can use the eye dropper tool to retreive a color value from any graphics displayed on your screen (you can use it to retreive colors of logic elements and search through the table using Hex search). If you want to have quick access to this color, drag the color thumbnail from the left to ons of the small containers on th right.

    The bottom panel

    The “Save Logic State” option will save your logic project before Colorizing, therefore will maintain windows placement before the make over.

    This is the rocket launch button. You have been working on a new theme for the past 10 minutes ? Well now is the time to see how it looks in Logic don’t you think? This function will pass all the new colors to logic GUI source & image elements.
