Are you planning to activate the peak level indicator on the analog VU meter?

Before I answer your question Aminifu, please answer mine:

is this peak indicator responsible for the red area of the scale or just for the "peak" of the entire scale when the needle hits +3?

The meters I've seen, with a peak indicator, lite them whenever the signal is in the red zone.

I've noticed that the top 3 levels of the digital VU meter now have the same color (red), instead of the top 4 levels. I agree with this change, but the screenshot in post #1 above still shows the old color assignment.

I also have another "constructive complaint". I think the color for the indicators used to show if the repeat and/or shuffle modes are active should be the same for both of them (green or yellow). I assume you use different colors to highlight that the indicators are for different functions, but both indicators are clearly labeled so there shouldn't be any confusion as to which is which.

I also just noticed that the right most segment for the left and right channels of the digital VU meter in the main player turns red (a peak indicator ?). So, to be consistent, the peak indicators in the analog VU meter should do the same (i.e. light up at the same point).

Yes, it is true. My mistake. The screenshot is not correct.

Really?

1) I do not understand what should light up in the analog VU Meter.
2) there will never be 100% consistency between the analog and digital VU Meters because the values are computed according to completely different formulas.

Yes, since these are just on/off indicators. I was just stating my opinion, what is weird about it? I know this is another case of developer's choice. It just struck me as an odd one (unnecessary, maybe even weird). That observation was not really a complaint, I was just using your characterization of my comments (trying to inject some humor).

If different colors are used, I think it would be more appropriate for the repeat status indicator to have 2 (on/active) colors since the repeat mode has 2 different active states.

s it possible to increase the LED indicator by + 15dB, + 30dB in the green zone and a peak value of + 6dB in the red zone, which will correspond to the peak value of the analog indicator (a flashing lamp) and the red segment of the main window indicator? It seems to me that then the indicators will take a more natural and finished look, and the digital indicator will smoothly and accurately transmit the audio signal. And it would be great to finish the playlist window, making it like in the stock version of VINAMP. Then it would be a masterpiece skin.

And further. The interdependence of the display is well implemented in the RESTANGULAR skin. There are both analog and LED indicators. The visualization of the sound signal is pleasant and, most importantly, quite accurate.

Sorry, in the green zone add -15db and -30db (or a constant LED indicator on). Thank you. I apologize for some confusion.

I don't know. You should consult Turing.

It's ok libero, there is no need to post so many times in a row, try to edit your posts the next time. Besides the constant LED indicators, what else do you like about this skin?

The cover itself is just SUPER. All controls are large enough and realistic. Perhaps this is even the best cover for WIMAMPA. The only thing I would add is that it slightly extended the indicator scale (already written above) in the lower and upper range and improved their interrelation with each other (if possible). And so, you can add to the general spectrum analyzer on-channel. Well, and the control buttons in the playlist (below) add, there also specify the duration of the active track and the total duration of the playlist. These are my wishes. In any case, many thanks for the work done.

Yes, and I wanted to ask, I do not switch by pressing the spectrum analyzer mode on the oscilloscope, and back, since it worked in the original cover. Do you know about this problem?
