In addition to these requests going nowhere, there are also plenty of people here on the forums that will give you the "looks aren't important, I'd rather see more functionality improvements before GUI improvements blah, blah, blah"
...along with "we like the UI just fine blah blah." Both which might part at least a little part of why they haven't changed it too much, along with oh btw not everyone thinking "this is so ugly it's so yesterday it sucks blah blah." And frankly IMO this whole thing is ridiculously overblown, at best. DAWs in general IMO look much more similar than they do different. Outside of the scaling thing the OP mentioned, why anyone thinks it's more than the tiniest of details about (for ex) whether a particular section has a gradient color vs flat I can't imagine. It's hardly a night-and-day diff.
I personally have brought the GUI thing to the attention of the developers (as have many others) and they don't seem to care.
Yeah, they don't care about our opinions; that's why they created this thread
Which only has about 300 million other suggestions. Why don't they make them all??
What the developer doesn't seem to understand is that there are a lot of potential buyers out there that WILL be turned off by a shitty-looking GUI, and they may just pass MC8 over for something else.
In your opinion, which doesn't automatically equate to fact FYI. My opinion is that saying MC has a "shitty-looking GUI" is absurd. Change it up and IMO it could lose just as many people as it doesn't. Although the diff in either case IMO is likely to be quite small.
This is much ado about nothing. I hope this idea is at or near the bottom of the pile.
