New Design or keep the current?
3. Dez 2013

Some people asked me to make the user interface more „fancy“. I developed a prototype similar to the ipad app:

NewDesignUnbenannt

 

What do you think? Should I use the new design or keep the current one?

    Its really OK the way it is. Please focus on functionality and potential bugs, not fanciness…
    But the new look is pretty OK too πŸ™‚

      Okay πŸ™‚
      The brown background didn’t looked right in some views. But I will keep the new Knobs / Fader.

    Hi David,
    The design is very cool.
    But the fx are still not yet implanted…
    When do you think you will fix it?
    Thanks for all your work!!!!

    The buttons are what I was talking about. They could be fancier.
    I never expected you would do anything so quickly. It’s true that functionality should come first. Especially the Main button.
    Keep up the good work!

      Yes but leave the buttons large, as they are easier to see

    I would prioritise functionality over visual design.

    Functionality and visibility should be your first priority, then „nice, professional looking design“. Fancy sometimes equals hard to read and reduced functionality. I think Behringer themselves have wandered into that trap quite a few times with some of the graphics both on the X32 itself and on the iPad app and the PC app. Rounding off the buttons and giving them a bit of a sculpted look wouldn’t go amiss as it makes the product look more finished and more attractive for buyers when you start charging money for it (you should). Until then, keep up the good work and make this an awesome product, I will probably buy a tablet for the sole purpose of running this app.

    No do nt change as the large tabs are really easy to see

    Hey im a website developer so I kinda have an idea of design if I say so myself. Personally I like the functionality and I. All about simplicity and functionality with clean and simple designs. I like to use uniform themes thought my sites and simple user interfaces. If you want some help u could render some knobs and hard etc etc if you wish. Email me at [email protected] if you need any help πŸ™‚ truly appreciate your work on this app πŸ™‚ keep up the great work!
