Has anyone made a synth with a Star Trek styled control panel?
It’s gonna be hard to play all type of chords on this with the fingers. Quite limiting😂😂😂0
LCARS menu system style? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LCARS
I remember there were a few custom skins for some plugins, but, I don't remember which ones.
Note also that it probably won't be the most comfortable/clear...0
I found a Frequency, Chords and Scales poster if you like
As for plugins, maybe the more similar is Hornet Spaces but it’s a reverb:0

Well, if you take the above mentioned Hornet Spaces, for example, I doubt that CBS cares (if they knew) much. If Google does it, OK. But not some one man audio software company, or people from the community who do custom GUI's.0
In looking at the "real" LCARS, the ones in the TV shows, and from other people that study the TV shows, it seems like there are no knobs. I know that the above mentioned Hornet Spaces and the TC Electronics NonLinear Classic, also a reverb, both do have knobs but they are very different styles.
In more general terms, I wonder about the way that the knobs on a plugin screen are typically used, that is click-and-drag across other elements of the screen. I think that the crossing other elements part of that is a no-no according to some design principles, but I don't know how to better add lots of controls in a small but usable interface area.
Just thinking out loud here. Also, I doubt if I will try to do this any time soon, just wondering if someone has done it.0
