UI kits for design audio software

I'm designer and musician. And I like to use VST plugins and instruments. I like styles of knobs and sliders in many of them. And one day I wanted to try to make the such kind of set. Now I have one huge kit (not only for audio software, it may be helpful for any kind of design) and 5 kits for creating audio apps. Now I plan to make 3 next kits (transparent, brass and dark plastic) and create some additions (like scales for knobs, some new styles of knobs and switches etc.)

Please take a look at my kits.

I need your opinion. Is this usable and helpful? What is need to add or remove or change?

Looks nice so far, but the current format is a fancy picture at best. It needs HEAVY editing for the use in a *real* application. This usually starts with the requirement for bitmap-strips and ends with tedious re-construction via low level drawing methods.

The typical web approach of delivering a psd with "up/over/down" states doesn't work with knobs, faders, LEDs, meters, ect. 95% of the graphical work is not about the basic design/style decisions.

There's huge demand for talented UI designers, and you are definitely talented. But the generic "50 web templates for 30$" approach isn't really suited for the task.

IMHO it's a much better idea both to focus specific projects instead. Also, have a look at knobman! Check out how VSTGUI and/or JUCE useto draw their UIs.

Thnaks. I will check Knobman and JUCE.
But of course I not only offer dead templates. I'm ready to produce any kind of compliant interfaces, or just siply slice any of single kob or switch into transparent PNG asstes.

Hi, I quite like your designs. They're visually very appealing. Part of the attraction in your design is the space, I think: the proportions make give it an elegant look. For tweaky interfaces (I'm thinking some 200 parameters) they're too large, though. But if I ever get anywhere with my current project (nothing commercial), I'll certainly think of your designs.

Now I'm working with next UI kit - it will be transparent and may fit on any background.
This kit will be universal for any purpose, but will contain some useful items for audio software design: sliders, knobs, switches etc.

If you have any suggestions or wishes please tell me, and I'll include it in this kit.
All previous kits are here: http://graphicriver.net/user/despoth/portfolio
