    Ummm, but this is just a Flash page ?!@?#!@?$

    It would be tons of work for NI to implement such a thing, faders are more than a Flash widget ;-)

    Looks great! But i hope NI focuses all their energy on the DFD engine, not cute-sy interfaces.

    I generally don\'t like \"physical metaphors\" in user interface design - they are often just too clumsy to operate and they bypass quicker ways (e.g. keyboard control) for operating the software.

    Good example: try to operate Windows Media Player from the keyboard [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] All fancy graphics, but no adherence to the Windows GUI standard...

    Sorry Alan, but I think this makes absolutely NO sense at all for making music and it only distracts. An interface without graphics and 3D effects will probably take up 20-50 % of this version.

    For me this is a very important reason NOT to buy Romplers like GPO and EWQLSO.

    I really hope that GS3 will have a more \"grown up\" user interface than versions 2.x. If GS3 won\'t, then I am sure LinuxSampler will have yet another opportunity for scoring in the usability category.

    I agree with you usually about the \"physical\" looking GUI\'s on software that you need to continuously be making changes to...

    However, there were requests for faders and once I have a setting set in GPO I usually don\'t mess with it too much, I mess with Cubase. So, balancing making this both look nice and tweakable was my main goal.

    I think the skin is great, maybe the faders are a bit too huge to me... anyway, as it has been mentioned, I\'d only use it if it does not suppose a higher use of ram or cpu, but the fader and panning seemed like a great idea, maybe a more conventional approach with just adding very conventional faders and panning could do...
