    the (orange) sound wave in the background kind of induces that audio is the main subject which isn't at all... anyway, thanks for the proposal.

    let the voting season commence ;)

    cheers

    otoh, that "tractor" word is not quite supposed to be a separate particle (yada yada, it sure means some country/rural machinery or else, some heavy-duty road truck, i know, i drive one ;)

    the issue here is that "qtractor" is one whole word and for that effect it must/should be kept as tight as it was originally generated by stressing on that "track" sounding and semantics. "Qtractor" is also a good spell ;)

    Hi Rui !
    As I said, it can be adjusted to your likings so your remarks are welcome :)
    OK I will start to think about a new version with no separate particle.
    Also when you say that audio isn't the main subject at all, what would it be then ? Midi, step sequencer, daw, mixer, ... ? I would like to take that into account too.

      thanks Jarle.

      one question, as always :) my eyes aren't what used to be anymore, but what's that pale yellow "thing" just below the piano keys? looks like a ship hatch or a bolted pipe joint or . . it really puzzles me :)

      seeya

    qtractor in graphics:

    update: I have fixed some issues with the icon in the svg-file. so some strange artifacts shown in the Qtractor -icons are now fixed there.

      I like it ! So I don't know if I even need to propose a new version of mine ? What do you think Rui ?
      JRA the logo / banner is great but additionaly could show us what you have in mind for the square png icon in different sizes ? (128, 64, 32 ,16)

       
  • Jarle Richard Akselsen

    Thank you DoosC. Main plan for smaller icons are fewer keys shown in the upper half circle to make it clearer, else more or less the same. I'll be back later with proposal, after I finish up some icons for Vee One suite.

      That sounds great !
      Also Rui what do you think about adding the banner in the upper right corner of the application like in the mock-up below ?

       
  • Jarle Richard Akselsen

    Different sizes. Could be that this is too far from what Qtractor current has as icon now. Maybe a redrawn 78 gramophone is the way to go.

      Yes this quite far from the current icon but I think it represents qtractor best.
      I mean you see a gramophone, you think "oh, a gramophone".
      You see those icons, you think "qtractor !".
      It is part of the visual identity of the application.
      Now this is time for the "great creator" to rule on !
      Rui, what about those nice icons (and also the upper right banner proposal ) ?

        lol. imHo Andy's gramophone is still my favorite--no surprise, i know. it was me full guilty who made hostage of it. and after all years gone by now, it really made it some kind of identity as you say.

        that's right, if my stance is valued in any way, Andy's work gotta serve as inspiration. no less. only more ;)

        cheers

          Well... we seem to agree that we disagree ;)
          I think Jarle's work gives a breath of fresh air to Qtractor. On the other hand you prefer the current icon as it historically represents Qtractor and it seems to have a bit of sentimental value.
          What a dilema ;)
          I can understand both point of view and see them as perfectly valid.
          But I guess that at the end of the day the "great creator" knows the way to go so I guess that the gramophone is here to stay and that the ticket can be closed for now.
          Cheers.
