thorwil's fader design
i'll probably be hated for this, but the more i think about it the more i think it is important to bring up.
i absolutely love the look of the new fader design thorwil did, however when i look at it and try to picture the mixer from an 'ardour newbie' point of view i think it could be confusing. the faders look too much like level indicators i think, and maybe need to have some sort of visual indication that they are indeed faders (even if it is only on mouseover maybe).
don't get me wrong, it doesn't bother *me* in the slightest. i'm just thinking about newcomers and if it might be a bit confusing to them.
