*RECOMMENDED SKIN SETTINGS ARE ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THE SCREENSHOT. Need to mention this because a lot of you are not looking at the bottom right for some reason.*

Note: For those who follow my work but don't know what Ableton Live is, this design contains no custom imagery replacements as my usual work does! It's essentially a color theme. Live is notoriously a royal pain to do even that.


Do occasionally check back here for updates! Or follow me on twitter: twitter.com/lancethackeray

Installation:
- WIN: Place LT.ask in C:\ProgramData\Ableton\Live 9.x Suite\Resources\Skins.
- MAC: Right click on Ableton app icon > show package contents> app resources> skins.
- Select skin in Live preferences.
- Do remember to transfer the skin over to any new Live installations/updates.

1.02 Notes:
- Freeze tracks now have a hint of blue. Previously they were white hindering text readability.
- Tracks in Arrangement view that differed from Session view were appearing solid white. They are now subtley pink to reflect the 'Back to Arrangement' button color. (Thanks andresnol.)

1.01 Notes:
- Changed sequencer note colors to pink/red instead of blue. I preferred blue, but the highlight color was also blue, which I couldn't change because that color is shared for other things. *grumble*

1.0 Notes:
- It's very likely that some small areas will look shitty. This is something we all have to live with as the skinning system for Live is terrible, and many sections/params share the same color. That said, I'll continue to look out for anything I can improve and post updates when I do.

Download button is over there on the right. :) This is for Live 9 though, so won't work (well) with 10.

I use on 10 and looks great next time Ableton should call you for redesign and giving a futuristic look a like ;)

This manages to Fit my color palette brilliantly. It's exactly what I'd want out of an ableton skin. Dark, easy on the eyes, and the features that need to stand out, stand out. Well done sir.
