I've just submitted my newest skin called JN-Silver... It makes Atomix look expensive and professional... :)

Tell me what you like?

This skin is slick!! Definately a professional look and feel to it. Only thing the red text on the black background can be a bit tough to read. I wonder if the text color could be changed to the silvery color of the skin area, or just a bit lighter even? It might be a lot easier to read. The kill bottons are awesome, and the EQ reset is sweet!
Thanks for the hard work JN.

Thanks... I'm going to do some changes...

Things I'm going to change until next upload:
- Brighter text in info windows (both active and inactive)
- make some text a bit bigger (Especially loop and effect indicators)
- make indicator lights by the buttons.
- make the rest of the metal panel a bit darker (- less of a contrast)

- some other touch-ups...

Thanks for your input.

Any other suggestions... Post them here or in the betaforum at this location and I'll check it regularly.

I don't know if the silver needs to be darker or not. The skin looks great just the way it is. (kind of a metalic feel to it) Definately something to make the text more visible, The red on black is tough to see, especially where it's smaller. I was thinking that the effects and loop buttons needed to change a bit when activated, but I looked closely at the center black window and see that it tells you which effect or loop is activated. Maybe just make that a tad bigger. These are just little things Jim, even unchanged, this skin is likely to unseat your classic skin as the one I use. It'll depend how my eyes feel after an hour or so using it in a dark bar. Meanwhile, if you'd drop a hint as to how I can re-color the red text, to something closer to white, or perhaps yellow or cream, or even a lighter shade of orange.

Changing the text-color is easy... just edit the xml-file

I've used color "#9A0000" many places... But you can easily change those to "red", "yellow", "white", and so on.

color="#9A0000" = color="red" is what I'm going to do...

(I keep forgetting that some skins that look good on my screen... may not on other screen types. )

you have to wait until it's released. Then you download it.

Love this skin! Mixes sound fantastic now with eq fader, and layout is very simple to use. I agree that the text in red could change in colour, but also I was wondering how to change the colour of the rhythm window as the red and green are a bit difficult for those of us who may be colourblind. The yellow and blue used in some other skins may be a good addition to help this....

how would I go about creating shortcuts to slide the eq faders across by keyboard?

thanks for the excellent skin - keep up the great work =))
