While I still have no idea if the final version will be flat design or realistic, or somewhere in between, V5b12 will have a nice and balanced colour palette with less contrast and colour mess, something confortable enough for long sessions.

This palette was build with many hours trying to understand what are the elements that make a gui visually tempered and ergonomic:
- avoiding full black or full white
- the less shades, the better
- two shades level difference between elements works nice
- colours should stand out only to require attention
- colours can "vibrate" when they are used on a gray background that shares the same darkness, it has a lot of character but less readability

my main influences on this subject were:
- Adobe CC suite
- Izotope ozone 8
- IK multimedia t-racks 5 standalone
- google's material design palette
- Nenad Milosevic's Ableton 10 concept
