I'm not suggesting for users to use their own icons and colors, and I'm not asking to change the color theme. I am suggesting for an overhaul of the visual interface which looks outdated compared to the current trend in software development. iOS was just an example but every professionally-made mass-market operating systems and products have been going into that direction for many years now; Android, Windows, macOS are to name a few. Whether some people like it or not, the software industry is not going back to the graphically heavy, 3D-looking user interface of iOS 5, Windows 7 and other products from 10 years ago.
By "overhaul", I mean:
- Remove gradients and use flat colors instead.
- Use flat, scalable icons.
- Eliminate round-corners and double-borders from buttons, panels and tabs.
All in the goal of improving readability, reduce the clutter and make the interface look less heavy. Take a look at Traktor 3 Pro, which has the same color theme as Mixcraft but with modern interface, you will understand what I mean.
