    In the GUI Knob kits, the scales, shadows and knobs are separate objects that you have to import and align to each other. Each on its own layer. So if, for instance, you have a standard Reaktor knob and want to replace it with a knob from a kit, first import the knob kit into your ensemble so you have all the images available in the drop down menu of your knob's properties. Select your knob, in Properties -> View select the knob image you want in the 'image' drop-down menu. Now you have the knob. The scales and shadows you can copy/paste if you don't have scales/shadows in your design already. Of you do, you can switch out your scales and shadows from the same drop-down menu in Properties.

    I haven't done a GUI with environment / background in a long while.

    What do you think of this:

    Skin for personal use.

    'Shpongler' by Cryptic Tone aka Z Gabr.

    I've been using it a lot so i'm making it look nice.

    Added Keyboard Tracking to the filter of Novarius.

    Rocker switch 1 adds 1/3 KT, switch two adds another 2/3 KT.

    Talk to me about polyphony.

    I want to make Novarius polyphonic.

    As far as i can tell, if i give the instrument (4 voice) polyphony and sort out which modules to keep Mono, it works like a charm (apart from the lamps, but i'll sort that out).

    Is it really that simple, though?

    Update:

    Novarius now comes with Polyphonic Mode (switchable), redesigned Velocity Sensitivity on/off switch, and Filter Keyboard Tracking (KT 1 switch adds 1/3rd keyboard tracking, KT 2 switch adds another 2/3rds for full KT)

    First time i've done anything with polyphony and / or keyboard tracking. Let me know what you think.
