What is better? What FM synth UIs do you like? What UI would look clean with that sort of patch?
A 6x6 grid with knobs like in Sytrus or with values like in FM8 is much better than this.

Spot on emulation except even better,as you can personalize each patch or bank to have a certain kind of grit or cleanliness to it.Making it like having multiple DX7s , I can't believe the price is so low.
The UI is perfect if you ever worked on a DX7 this is a complete upgrade,finding your way around is completely elegant.

Suggestion for Invert colour switch , it works wonderfully well on the brownish colour

That looks pretty good. Maybe it would be nice if you can pick the colors you want for the knobs, background etc., or just have a limited selection of pre-configured color themes.

(sorry if i've missed the answer...)

and

Demo usually takes a few weeks after release

The skinning is rather trivial with our styles.xml feature in our UI folders. But we need to add a user skin drop down and maybe add two factory ones. If you try chipsynth SFC, it has 4 skins. We just didn't have time to add a few in OPS7. A light one, close to what you suggest was indeed in my head.

This was an honest and (I think) constructive criticism, but since you don't want it, I will not bother you more with this.
Didn't want to sound rude, I was overwhelmed with multiple criticisms and posts.

Yep. This. I know a grid of numbers maybe doesn't look "cool", and might initially appear unfriendly to someone who lacks minimal understanding. But, as a clear and concise way to present a lot of complexity in minimal UI space, you're not going to better it. Though FM7/8's implementation could've arguably been improved on slightly with more usage of colour coding info for routing.
