To be honest I'm surprised that 12 is so far in the lead (double at the time of this post). That's the one I'll be using but I thought the more colorful options would win out.

Tone 2 said "27 skins" but I think they might be counting the keyboard/no keyboard options. Still everyone should be able to find something they like.

I'm hoping the skin files will be exposed to the end user so we can tweak them as I find that a fun pastime when my ears are tired.

Without any hesitation on the 12.

Classy, ​​sober.

TBH they are not really that diff, just lots of colour changes, most of which are def not to my taste.

12 is OK, but I would change the colour of the displays (not a fan of those on any gui)

Post

I’ll probably end up using 12 most likely but 6 or 12 are nice and are more recognizable as Icarus from a distance but with a nice makeover

12.

I'm not color-blind, but it would be nice to know if there are any accessible or color-blind user-friendly skins.

Why is oscillator 2 always a different color than oscillators 1 & 3? That is very confusing to me.

It would make much more sense to have the oscillators all be the same color and the modulation sources all be a different color.

Oscillator 2 is in granular mode, not wavetable mode.

The problem is that some skins are not showing as much information, eg. modulation.

Because they show different tabs. Some screens show the arp instead of the matrix

Take screens 10 and 12. I don't see any modulation information around the knobs in 12 as obvious as in 10. In 12 it's the grey zones on the knobs themselves. 10 shows 2 different colours around some knobs.

I think I like 10 the most, followed closely by 6, but they’re all very well done even if I don’t personally love some of the color choices.

27 skins is very generous. I’d love to see the others that aren’t being considered for the default one.

i like 10 most, also followed by 6.
12 is nice, but lacks in some details. As has. been posted.

The fonts are too dark on all of them, exept of #7. Could even be brighter.

Dark fonts (grey on black ground) looks to me, like it´s a new pester in the software world.
i totally hate it. But YMMV
