I have to be honest and admit that I'm not overly keen on the font being used. I prefer the bars to the the design you've used for the faders. Not a bad direction, just not keen on the font mostly.

Thanks for the comments so far. Would be nice if you could be specific on proportions, kerning, line thickness or single letters if the font still seems not right ;)

I think both are really nice. I can't quite make out what the background image is of but I was thinking that it might be a good idea if it was either a generic piece of hardware like a mixing desk(or something similar) where the manufacturer wasn't at all apparent or an actual screenshot/elements of the ardour gui in action.

I also think the font needs work. I do know a font designer so I guess I could ask for his input but don't count on it as he is super busy :)
