You're right, we need to do something about this. My suggestion is to
renew all the note icons (note*.png) at the same time to give them a
fresh and modern look (and not that comic-like). Anyone who wants to
contribute here? Once we have the new icons it should be easy to make
a nice chord icon as well as a scale icon.

They look very good! Maybe they can improved such that the vertical
lines are more bold and visible. I'm also curious of how they look at
the destination height of 24 px (there should be no white border at
the top or bottom for not losing more details). Once finished, maybe I
can help with polishing the SVG file(s). Keep up the good work!
Oliver: "I personally prefer icons with less color"
I'll have to disagree there. As a graphic artist, I believe color is one of
the most powerful tools available for helping make a GUI beautiful, not
just effective. Also, I think using more color in the icons will help us
stop looking like an FL Studio ripoff when there is really more to this
project then that. Based on your sample art, I think we would love to have
you contribute your skills though. If worst comes to worst and we can't
agree on an artistic direction, you can just work on an alternate theme.

In my sample image they are actually copied from 24x24 px exports with no
borders. I'll make this improvement and include the .SVG files all zipped
up with strings in the next update.
Oliver: "I know that this is totally subjective"
I definitely agree. That is one reason I think it would be cool if LMMS had
better theme support.
Anyway, here is another update, with SVG and PNG files. Note that I use
GIMP to add a slight shadow around them after I export. Any other changes I
need to make?
