Track color pack for Cubase (version 3)
Want to spice up Cubase a bit? What about giving Cubase a makeover by adding some more track colours?
What this is
In Cubase we have the ability to change track colors. This is a great way to keep multi track audio recordings organised. Cubase comes with 16 generic different colours. This is nice, but some of us need more than that. This download contains a bunch of beautiful track colors. These colors have been carefully selected to ensure that the colours are distinctive and aesthetically pleasing. This has taken a great amount of time to make and it is a project I have worked on with passion for hours.
What you get
Basically, what you get is 171 different track colours you can use in any Cubase project. That sounds like a lot right? It is. Now, the big question is: what if you only want some of these colors? Let’s say you only want level 5 (average brightness). No problem, DAWLAB’s got your back. Just apply the file “Color level 5 only.cpr”. What if you want level 1 to 4? Just apply the file “Color levels 1-4”. You get the idea… 🙂 Oh, also this download includes version 2!
What you need
This color pack will basically work with all versions of Cubase from SX 2.2 up to Cubase Pro 9. The latest test was performed with Cubase Pro 9 (update 9.0.10).
How to use
How to apply the color pack to Cubase:

- Open the project file (the file with the .cpr file extension) in Cubase.
- Click on the color tool in Cubase and go all the way down in the list and choose “Options”. To make this color pack the default in Cubase click on “Save Current Set as Program Defaults”. Voilà, you are good to go!
If you have a hard time applying the color pack you can watch the old tutorial video here.
How to apply the color pack to older projects:
Please note that track colors are saved with each project, so if you open an old project you will have to apply the colour pack again. To do this just click on the colour tool again, click on options and choose “Load Program Defaults to Current Settings”. See illustration here.
The color pack has been available for free since 2014. Unfortunately some user have not respected the amount of time and work I have put into this and shared it on other sites.
Hopefully, users who have paid for the download will be more inclined to respect the work and the value of not having to do the work themselves. So, a minimum donation of 3$ is required for the download. That’s the price for a cup of coffee. A coffee takes 5 minutes to make. This has taken literally hours.
