    Hey,

    I've been working to improve the clarity of the fonts and colour for better balance between all browser's, including smart phones.
    How does the forum look on your browser?
    Do you like the colours?
    What suggestions do you have?

    Thanks.

    Well I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but you are seriously peaking your 2-bus meters in the top left hand corner of the screen. You might wanna think about backing the gain down a bit. :p

    I was waiting for that! And was going to ask this after it actually was mentioned! My first awaiting comment was, That red is for our agreeing to disagree and my relentless attitude towards consoles lol!

    You just made my day. I expected it would be you who took a shot on that one. Right on.. (y)

    Joking aside, I have actually been thinking I should remove the red. The examples of Wisdom. I may just do that.

    it depends on what the meters are displaying , VU or digital. Red is ok on VU's.

    Indeed! I like em slamming when they add that delay action to the beat lol!.
    I think I'm going to try and drop the red out and see how it looks. The red is a bit too obvious, almost distracting.

    Nah... we're fine - as long as we're going to tape. ;)

    Looks to me to be just about at that sweet spot on a tape deck loaded with 499 at 320 nWb/m ... that +4 to +6 area where some very groovy sounds could happen.

    But if we're talking digital... well, that puppy's gonna be knockin' and spittin' worse than a '52 Buick Roadmaster running low on oil. ;)

    :LOL:

    Hahahaha....

    My grandfather had a '56 RM. The back seat in that monster was 27 feet away from the back of the front seats. You could live in the trunk - if you were okay with having only a one bedroom apartment.
    The driver's seat had it's own zip code.

    Ba-dum Ching!

    I'm here all week. Try the veal.

    Back to website appearance, I Wonder if a better contrast of the top row of the menu wouldn't be better on small displays. (see recording.jpg)

    Also the replies and views on the top row are not aligned with the amount. (see recording.jpg)
    I wound put nothing in the title bar or combine the words like : replies/views or something

    Of course the site could stay as is ;) those are very small things I noticed.

    Hey Marco, these are exactly the answer I am looking for, thanks! I agree as well. Those area's are exactly where I am right now. Should have it better by the end of the day.
