Quick visual identification. Where's the guitar track? By the guitar. Logic has these already built-in, and this is supposed to give you more pics to choose from.


Works well for some people - I had a buddy who used to draw pictures on his board tape, instead of writing. This is the equivalent.

:DChris. I love the looks I get from young guys on live gigs when I start drawing arrows to indicate vocal mic positions instead of names. Or SR, SL USC, DSC, or draw a star for the lead vocal.


The idea is sound, IMO, for a DAW. I can't imagine it takes more than a miniscule amount of resources to accomplish puttng custom pics to various tracks, and it can do a LOT towards making the client comfortable. What if I put an icon of their face to their track? There are all kinds of possibilities.


One of my favorite features of N-track had nothing to do with audio. The background was a .bmp picture. As with desktop wallpaper, I could put whatever image I chose as the background on N-track simply by changing the file labelled, "timeline.bmp" I saved the original as "timeline original.bmp" should I ever want it back and saved many bmp's in the N-track folder for when I decided to switch to another. It would've been nice if I could have opened a small program like the Logic Iconizer to make the switch rather than search through files (this was on Win98) and rename the appropriate files.


That said, I understand BrittanyLips frustration. Tron has been trolling under several different screennames and has generally been an ass to... well, pretty much to everyone. :rolleyes:

And using little pictues is better than color coding tracks because of why?


Maybe it's 'cause I'm 'trapped' on a 1280 x 800 laptop screen, but there aren't too many extra pixels of screen real estate left in my work environment.


Sometimes there's a fine line between cute and silly. But, hey, having the option is nice, I'm sure...

Neil, I understand the trolling reaction. Still, it wouldn't hurt to put it in check when someone's posting something semi-useful.


blue - how many colors can you look at & differentiate? If you have a lot of types of instruments in one piece you'll end up grouping by type - which is fine, until you want specifics. Imagine, for the sake of argument, that you multi-tracked an orchestra, 1 instrument at a time. Color-coding is going to help you differentiate sections, but not instruments - unless you start using shades, pastels, etc.


Besides that, you are translating to use colors; you have to remember that blue=guitars, red=keys, what have you. With icons, you don't. Want keys? Look for the keyboard. Kick drum? Find the kick.


I'm not trying to convert you, but it is a valid tool, not just "cute". If color-coding works for you, fine. I think that icons are fine too.

OK, ribbing aside, I think it's a good feature to have (and I'm sure you can turn it off).


Yes, it does seem a trifle silly to me, but if it works for someone else, they really shouldn't worry what I or anyone else think.


[And, it must be noted that I pretty well hate overly iconized interfaces, since, in 90% of the cases I'm dependent on 'tool tips' (those little mouse over labels that pop up when you linger over icons in a carefully iplemented interface) since I can almost never figure out what the icons are supposed to represent. I end up remembering the functions of most icons not by their putative symbolic 'content' but usually by their position in/on the interface. Which is certainly not how it's supposed to work...]


Frankly, few of my projects have so many tracks that I get confused. I work more in the way of hiding/unhiding -- which works well for me, keeps tracks I'm not working on out of my way (and out of the way of clumsy mouse clicks, etc).


But I realize that with theatre work, foley, soundtracks, etc, a project, or just big, contempo-pop albums, one can end up with a huge number of tracks.


Whatever works for a given user to sort them out is good, for sure.
