Hey, listen here, quit updating so often

Also, I saw the CD in album art has a label now. Is there any merit to thinking that may or not mean disc label art some time in the future?

What about such pseudo-3D-look for Main Player and other components?

Looks great for the Main Player! Not so sure about the other components. I assume you will provide an on/off option for each.

Looks great! Will this be a new Quinto skin or a continuation of Quinto Black CT?

In v2.6. I can't see a number in the crossfade box in the equaliser.

Mashups ? Smells like a lot of "Fishy Business" to me.

Now THIS is a very good question which also crossed my mind. I am still planning on making a poll so all of you could decide: should we keep the old fashioned 2D look or switch to 3D?

Very good Dr.Flay. Now please find the other component with missing digits.

The width and height for this so called bitmap font file are wrong. I will fix it for the upcoming 2.7 version.

And this is how some other components would look like:



I am aware of the fact that creating such fake perspective is only possible by having different vanishing points, which is impossible while displaying several 3D objects on the same plane. The proper approach for that challenge should be like this: As soon as we place two components next to each other we make a perspective view, which "ends" in one and only vanishing point somewhere on the horizon and should look like in this following example:



And this is in our project just not doable.

At the end having such a 3D option would be nice gimmick within the skin. But is it good enough to create a brand new one?

Found it !
The Frequency Response Graph (I never use the builtin equaliser so may never have seen it unless you had said something).

And this is what I made last weekend and will add to the upcoming version of my skin:



P.S. Yes, those white "wheels" will rotate during playback.

Cool addition, but why a basic ferrous oxide tape ?
I would suggest an upgrade to something high end like a metal type IV Thats tape.
They look cool, and the high recording ranges available more closely reflect the higher quality audio we commonly have.
Minor point obviously, but fun, and the tapes we all really wanted.

At least consider a TDK SA 90 ? or something from the chrome and metal options

AR isn't a basic tape either. It's a highly regarded super ferric that can take almost the same levels as type IV tape.

That's too new for going retro. Why not reel-to-reel?

Because my retro skin originates mainly from this period of time. And reel-to-reel would replace the Main Player and I am not sure I would like it now.

A brand new skin - just a reel-to-reel component - a high definition and high resolution drawing - nothing else - we could talk about it.

Adding such cassette feature is merely for our "visual amusement" regardless if the tape is ferric-, chrome-, or metal-type. We could discuss whether choosing a transparent version like this one would be a better idea. It looks slightly better and cooler but having transparent case seems not always to be the better choice. You might "lose" a lot of details while having a transparent cassette on your desktop. In order to prevent such loss we might add an opaque background. In the end we would have a transparent tape case with opaque background for better visual experience.
