Default back to ableton then...

.. despite the fact that Alex is right about copying other apps interfaces I think that the Ableton approach is definitely one of the most efficient around. I personally don't like the fatty 3D approach. It's basically nostalgic which is strange when you think of our forward digitarian approach towards music construction. The 2D approach is much more clear and efficient. The operator is not distracted by fake shadows, fake glimmering, fake led lights. I mean, if we really wanted to go back to the originals: why not use the classic vu meters?

Anyway: anyone who is clever with the photoshop stuff willing to try and designing the ultimate 2D interface (with ableton as example and/or inspiration) will have my full support!
