I don‘t like the Plugmon skins and I‘m happy with the Hexagon and the colours...

Are you and the others talking about this one?

If so, my vote is for the original skin. 8)

A little bit off topic, but I love the Plugmon skin for Bazille. It's much more inspiring than the original skins, at least to me.

I find the colours too dark and not contrasting enough, but the /layout/ makes a lot of sense to me :phones:

Anyway, there should surely be no "either/or", but a few different /options/ would be nice...

Yes, that‘s not my taste, sorry.

Sometimes I think it's better to leave an original the way it is. OTOH I do like having other skins to choose from as long as there are at least one or two good alternatives. I just don't really like that one in particular. :shrug:

I don't like Plugmon skins ....I fuckin' love 'em ! The AIKO skin for Diva might be my fave GUI for any VSTi I own

Clear, functional, unobtrusive skeuomorphism and greatly improves my workflow from the base skin

I like them/ I don't like them.
Not very interesting without the because part...

I'll be waiting for satYatunes to create one of his awesome skins for Hive 2. For example his Spartan Gray skin is very easy on the eyes and professional looking. :tu:

That's just my opinion of course but I don't really like multi-colored GUIs. They tend to look more like a toy than a tool to me...... :shrug:

Not finished in terms of contrasts and stuff, but a rough glimpse at what we're going for:

Thoughts?

Looking real nice - Does the microtuning box light up if there's anything other than 'none' set, that's the only box for me that looks a little unclear

Cheers Glyn.

It looks toyish. Too many colors and they clash. Sorry but you asked....... :shrug:
