The usual GTK buttons are just not good for gapless layouts, so I once again tried a minimal 3d effect for a tight layout with clear target areas. The new letters and icons combination is less bold then my previous designs.
Moved the meters into the faders, to have both vertical and one larger target area. They could be placed below instead, of course.
Removed the buttons on the transport section just as a quick test.
Removed the settings from the tempo control. Speed would be shown only if it’s non-zero. Sprung or wheel mode would be indicated on mouse-over only. The settings could be changed via a context menu.
Went on to see how the canvas could look starting from black. One goal was to do away with the strong region content/label-bar separation.
