    Sorry, but what? Some themes (well known offender: Adwaita) blow widgets up to (what I think are) ridiculous sizes. The whitespace between widgets is however fully up to the programmer. Margins are 0px by default, the spacing in containers is either 0px by default or is given as argument to the constructor of the container. Having no whitespace between widgets isn't a good idea so developers almost always assign custom margins or spacing values.

    Seriously tho, it would've looked so much cleaner with exactly the same layout with Qt widgets... GTK was specifically intended to expose as much whitespace as conceivably possible to end users, so this thing here looks incredibly cluttered. The borders between elements are ginormous!

    It looks quite a bit like "round peg meets square hole". (Using a widget set designed for maximum whitespace while trying to leave the least amount of whitespace)
    It looks much better than lmms that's using Qt.

    All I see is just a standard looking GTK3 application with the addition of the menus in the header bar. I wish both Qt and GTK could agree on that style of CSD; possibly with a method to convert the text menus to icons for touch modes and smaller screens. I suppose when you're primarily a KDE Plasma user and you use limited GTK programs that don't follow the GNOME style, like GIMP, Steam, Firefox, and Pulseeffects, Zrythm doesn't seem all that out of the ordinary.

    For me it'll be really interesting when I get all the stuff to hook my bass up to my PC without the Rocksmith cable so I can actually try this out. I have a powered splitter/bypass pedal under the Christmas tree that should do the trick. If that doesn't work I'm gonna have to step it up and buy a decent mixer board or Focusrite or something like that. I want to be done spending bass money and save for a new PC so I really hope it does the trick...well, aside from $100 on a Glarry fretless...

    Because I'm my family's primary internet and computer person I ended up buying my Christmas presents for other family members. They all wanted to use my Amazon account. Is anyone else in that position where you know every singe thing under the tree that you're getting but you can't open anything so there's a Christmas? It sucks I really want my flatwounds

    Phoronix: Zrythm Inches Closer To v1.0 As Open-Source Digital Audio Workstation

    Earlier this year we covered Zrythm as an open-source digital audio workstation that is cross-platform, supports a wide variety of plug-ins, and built atop GTK3. Back then it was on the pre-1.0 version numbering while this weekend marks the release of 1.0 Alpha 6...
