Fancy Menu Bar

Plugin for Ableton Live

When working with Live in maximized window mode (not full screen), the menu bar (file, edit…) takes the colors defined by the operating system. Fancy Menu Bar allows you to customize the colors to fit Live’s theme, making the user experience more pleasant.

The device displays a floating window above the title bar and menu bar of the Live window. The colors of the background and the text of the title bar and menu bar can be customized independently.

  • Works with languages: Deutsch, English, Español, Français, Italiano.
  • The button to show/hide the device can be mapped.

The colors of each element can be set in RGB format using the number boxes, or by using the Color Picker control on the right.

When the Color Picker icon is activated, clicking anywhere on the screen takes the color under the mouse pointer.

To consider:

  • Does not support Asian languages.
  • It only works with the Live window maximized. It does not adjust to the size of the window but to the size of the screen.
  • In multi-monitor configurations, it is only displayed on the monitor defined as main in the operating system.
  • The device is shown on top of all windows, even other programs.
  • The version 1.0 of the device is designed to work with the zoom scale of the operating system at 100%. The device will be updated to work with other zoom scales based on feedback from users who request it.
