Description

Clicking this enables “audition mode” and the cursor becomes this icon. Ideally we want it to be something like the current icon to show that “sound will be played” and maybe a vertical line somewhere inside the icon so you can place it precisely where you want to start auditioning from

History

#1 Updated by Alexandros Theodotou 7 months ago

I think we are overusing the musical note symbol. for audio signal-related things, we should probably be using something that looks like an audio wave. in this case since the icon is more about playback, I think a speaker would make more sense, similar to the attachment

like this?
I'm a bit worried about the "volume" icon because the speaker shape is often used for volumes.

yeah this is great! zrythm doesn't really have those classic volume controls like music players (it's a bit more advanced and knobs/faders are usually part of something else that has its own icon) so it should be fine I think.
