Default Automation Icons

Some themes do a bit poorly on relaying the automation mode on a track. They carry either confusing icons that take close study to read, or neglect to make a difference between touch, write and latch modes.

The only two icon sets I've so far found very usable in this regard are "PT 3" (almost the same as the "PT 2" predecessor) and the ones featured in the Akoustic and Teej UI sets, though they are a bit marred by the lack of contrast IMHO.

What are your favorites?

Good point, I myself have just neglected these in my Mackie icons. Trying to make ammends, do you have a problem with a 'boring but clear' style? Like this...

Yeah, i realized that those buttons need some work. While Akoustic did a great job with his, they don't really fit in with the whole Klingon scenario, ya know? And since i couldn't come up with anything better, i just left them as-is.

But it's time to fix them. So i'm looking for ideas to make them:
1. Stand out more
2. Fit with Klingon
3. If possible, be button-less (meaning just text, no background)


I've tried simply recoloring the Klingon text used for that button, but i don't think they stand out enuf, do you?




Other ideas welcome.

whoa. Sorry, Solar! I just read this.

I've attached the graphic for your use. Note that i did not design it. Not sure if you know this, but you can right-click on a picture, and select Save Picture As...


Anyway, while i very much enjoy your avatar, i don't think wifey would appreciate me using it. But thank you for using it.
