Thankfully Hive is not Rapid or Dune or whatever else and can have its own feature set instead.
Also what you did was far from a redesign, you just changed colors (with a really bad contrast ratio, too). A redesign is when you completely change the layout of controls, not when you retain the positions of controls and just change the skins. A good example of a proper redesign is what PlugMon is doing.
I remember you said the same thing a few months back... but you either didn't read or remember my reply to that. Your assessment of what I did, is actually wrong because what I did, was in fact not just re-colour things, I redesigned them completely or enhanced them visually, so they had more clarity from how they looked previously. Functional controls were shifted to a different location like the link button to the centre. Knobs, text labels were shifted, whilst knobs were rendered in another 3D program, display elements were moved and redesigned as well as buttons. Every screen was redrawn and almost everything icon wise. Almost every element was shifted like the screen elements in the lower half and re-organised. The strip of message buttons were improved so you don't have light grey text being illuminated by mid tone orange. Piano section was completely redesigned, modulation section also with added functionality added so instead of having one XY Pad on the left, you have one mirrored on the right side as well, so not only does one have symmetry in the design, you also have consideration for those who naturally work from right to left (right handed users).... Implementing features that were not there before. To do all this required 3 different applications, and a complete deconstruction and interpretation of the scripting code as well as from a graphical standpoint. There is plenty that I've missed as I'm recalling this from memory... Also, when I change things, I do so to make them better (as I want to see them), not because of change sake or any alternative motive to sell something, just because one knows how to completely change the look of something to fit their end goal. There is no need to change the core design of something that the original designer / engineer has identified works best for a user, however there is always room for improvement to that design in the eyes of another. Saying something isn't a redesign is like saying a redesign of a car isn't a redesign if it doesn't have 6 wheels instead of 4, which is of course ludicrous. Same principle applies to GUI design. There's actually a video of the first design I posted last year.. it's slowly being updated since then.
