UI kits for design audio software



I’m designer and musician. And I like to use VST plugins and instruments. I like styles of knobs and sliders in many of them. And one day I wanted to try to make the such kind of set. Now I have one huge kit (not only for audio software, it may be helpful for any kind of design) and 5 kits for creating audio apps. Now I plan to make 3 next kits (transparent, brass and dark plastic) and create some additions (like scales for knobs, some new styles of knobs and switches etc.)

Please take a look at my kits.

I need your opinion. Is this usable and helpful? What is need to add or remove or change?

Nice design work!


My only reservation would be that converting photoshop layers into working code is a dreadful task, and even though you say the layers are “vector based”, I’d have no idea how you’d extract the vectors from PS into some kind of useable format (i.e. SVG) without turning them into images (is that even possible?)


+1 for everything ! :mrgreen:

I would like also to add that I would want to know how to convert say a knob done in PS into something that can be used to animate the control in the program. I use a lot Knobman for that, but I think some Photoshop plug-ins should exist to transform a design into a set of N images with all the animation steps…

How to create a custom curved slider

These look really great, but from what I see, some of the elements are pretty hard to realize as a “real” UI component, e.g. the curved sliders.
Other than that, really great!

Now, someone’s bound to provide proper .psd support :slight_smile:


That’s exactly what “LayerEffects” is for!


Is there any chance LayerEffects might be updated soon to be compatible with JUCE 5?
