I like the demo, but hate the knobs :) Also, you could just move the "lynx" logo where is currently says "Xenobioz" and place a lynx head dingbat of the sort in the freed space in the LFO section ;) Nit picking, I know :) But if you do plan on keeping these knobs, at least make the background blue or something... right now they don't look right at all. As usual - IMO :)

OK, maybe I should change the blue on the knob. All my other synths are almost blue so I want to keep this red. It would be cool with a lynx head. I would want one that was made of original art though. Thanks for the feedback!

It is very good that the knobs show that kind of information, showing the value they have been tweaked to.

If it is blue or not, doesn't matter that much to me. If you will change the color, I suggest to go with black/grey as it will stand well with the waveform window

That's nice, but the knobs on the old GUI looked almost the same (same knobs as in Lucid).

Yes, personally I like that knobs like they are now because the position is shown so clearly. I want almost flat knobs to fit the rest of the GUI and also those colored circles (the blue ones).

I quickly tried with knobs with inverted color (Black knob, yellow circle + arrow). That doesn't look too bad. The knobs melt in with the rest of the GUI more.

oh yeah, they do look like the old ones. i didnt even look back at the old ones.
well, i think the blue on the new ones is what looks out of place. maybe try red
instead. or getting rid of it completely and positioning the triangle pointer to the knob edge

That looks quite nice. Can you make it a .png with transparent background.

I will replace the blue then. Possibly with red.

Here is my final GUI, hopefully everyone will think it's okay. I changed the color on your Lynx idfpower. I think it looks really nice with that color.
