This may be a dumb question, but how do you add a skin to the combinator? Thanks

You’ll find this feature by Control-Clicking on the Combinator interface. At the bottom of the list you’ll see Select Backdrop.

This is a really nice idea! I would just leave out non-functional controls like the tab buttons on Massive, though.

Thanks. Those intentionally get covered by Combinator's patch browser. I only put them there for artistic expression.

This has probably been suggested before, but it would be awesome if Propellerhead supported using the RE SDK to make custom Combinator front-ends.

Less work for Noel ;)

The backdrops come in the various skin colors available. Example for the default skin:

Hey Richard! Unrelated to this thread but thought I'd ask - it's been a year and 1/2 since Dune 2.5 came out. Are there any plans for a Dune update anytime this year? Love that synth!

At some point DUNE 3, though I cannot say when yet, it's a big project :) If we update DUNE 2 it will probably be a maintenance update.

Fantastic news! And let me mention - having Dune 2 in Reason is simply awesome. One of my favorite synths and easily up there with Serum, Spire and VPS Avenger!

I can't seem to vote on the list at the top but I would vote for several of them. A couple of notable missing entries, IMHO, would be Ezdrummer and Absynth (NI). Also you have Waldorf but I'd like to see a specific entry for PPG.
But overall this is a Great idea! Much needed.
Thanks!

FXpansion have been longtime friends of Reason. I think backdrops for Strobe2, BFD3, and Geist2 are in order.
