Finale® Mixer Views

The Height of Skeumorphism

Written or printed music notation is a centuries-old practice to communicate a composer's vision to a performing musician. It seemed only fitting that the mixing interface within Finale Notation Software would mimic tactile, analog controls that had been in use for decades. The colors, however, were chosen to be consistent with Finale's branding at the time.

The following interface elements were created in Adobe Photoshop:

  • Rotating knobs/dials
  • Fader knobs
  • Indicator lights
  • Buttons
  • Level meters
  • Drop-down menu backgrounds
  • Panel backgrounds
