Ardour Headers

Ardour looks very busy. So here’s a series of mockups based on the ongoing svn branch. They are about reducing colour variations on track/bus headers and automation tracks and alternatives to the button group with letters on them.

I often thought about putting additional controls on the free space on tracks/busses with large height. An alternative would be removal as in D.

    Thorwil,
    I’d vote for D if it was an option.

    In case it’s not, C gets my vote.

    Alex.
