[done] [x] Lcd-backlit-off

most value boxes have light 8’s behind their characters, would be great! if i could turn that off

using a black on white theme there’s no lcd-feeling at all…just can’t read the values right…

Huh?

What value boxes?

I don’t have 1.8 on this computer, but I definitely haven’t noticed these faux-led characters if it’s true.

the first time I noticed it.
I doubt if it was ment for a LCD effect

I’ve commented on this myself in the past and I do think it’s something which should be removed. It doesn’t really serve any purpose other than a slight (and unnecessary) visual effect.

It doesn’t always show up strongly depending on the theme you are using, but in certain themes it becomes really obvious and it is quite a distraction:

On the left is Renoise (both 1.5 and 1.8), on the right is my cleaned up version which I think would be better.

.

Wow.

It’s amazing how one’s brain could be completely oblivious to something until it’s specifically pointed out.

Surely the clarity of the values should be of much higher importance than a tiny amount of visual style? (A style which is pretty futile anyway on something which is 7 or 8 pixels in size). The textured sliders aren’t a big deal at all because they don’t obscure any important information.

Honestly I don’t feel like this pseudo-LCD style adds anything to Renoise’s interface as a whole, but under the right circumstances it can certainly take a lot away from the interface. Making the interface look nice is of course important, but usability and readablity should always be the top priority in my opinion. I don’t think this should be an optional thing that can be changed with the texture/theme, it should just be clear and readable, period. I mean, Renoise is not WinAmp or something, I don’t need to be tricked into thinking I’m looking at the digital display of a hi-fi stereo component. I’m using a software application - the display should be made as clear as possible for this platform.
