[MPC Live] waveform controls: Use shapes instead of text labels.

There appears to be an inconsistency in the use of waveform controls. See the following:


I would recommend using shapes instead of textual labels for the following reasons.

- Waveform symbols are esthetically more universal and less boring.
- Hard to explain complex shapes with short text.
- Text is subject to localization. Symbols are not.

  • Hey Simo,

    Thanks for posting!

    The forum is a great place to discuss potential new features for the hardware and software but be sure to submit this as a proper feature request with the MPC 2.0 Software's built-in feedback module. The feedback module is represented by a smiley icon at the lower right side of the software next to the browser icons. This information goes directly to the Akai team for consideration!

    Thanks for your feedback!
