broadcast skin new version

Postby DJ poppy D » Mon Jan 28, 2019 4:42 am

My Broadcast skin is quite fluid and it gets up dates and played with to suit needs at times but here is the latest version
note it can support 4 mics and 4 aux input depending if need be depending on audio interface used
i use a esi - esu 1808 audio interface so we have both headphone and studio monitor outputs volume controllers

Thank you verry much. Please post screenshot. I a curious to see it.

Mixxx needs a fluid Broadcast skin very hard.
Do you have interests to make it ready for merging to master?

there are a few things I would like to tidy up but are pushing the limits of my scripting abilities to get it this far :)

Great, this is probably exactly what the Mixxx project is missing. Thank you very much.

If something exceeds you scripting knowledge, it might be the leak of a better support form the c++ site. What do you like to implement? Maybe I can support here.

Looking at it, I think it is made as "features firts". This is not bad at all but maybe you have a friend with design knowledge or just a good design taste. It would be great If we finally find something of real beauty in a boadcasting users eye. :-)

In the Mixxx projects the designers are the minority. And we can make use of some more helping hands here.

The next step could be to issue a PR on github marked as WIP this way we can easy comment you code an merging it to Mixxx one it is polished enough.
Some hints of our workflow can be found here: (For
further assistance, just ask)

Maybe we can call also for other broadcasting users critics.

What do you think?

I am happy with the lay out and and features but need a design expert to get the control boxes to be even and fill out the spaces and may be get all the button in the boxes nice and central ? All the controls do what they are meant to do its just looks a little untidy :)

Ok, so it is the best to do a GitHub Pull Request.
That is the easiest way to collaborate with others.

Here are some hints. if you need help, please ask.

Hi All,
I realise this is a bit of an old thread, but I'm hoping someone might be able to help. I've downloaded, unzipped and copied this to the 'skins' folder, but sadly, the programme will not open it. So my questions are 1) should have done something else to make this work or 2) is it incompatible with the current version?
All help welcome or if anyone has a suggestion for alternative, similar skin I'd be very grateful.
Cheers!

Adding it to the skins folder in Mixxx should not make the program crash.

I tried it on 2.2.3 and on the development version (2.3) and it worked on both



You should have added it like this:

C:\Program Files\Mixxx\skins\Broadcast skin

and there , all the files that it includes ( buttons, style, aux_passthrough.xml .... )
