Great, thank you for the screenshots. Everything looks good so far.
The free space after the rightmost playback slider bothered me a bit.
But that's due to the long label text of the slast slider.
And admitted, your envy24 mixer with the nice peak meters and the
dB labels looks a bit more professional. ;)

There're some mixer where one has to activate a switch to mute
the volume. I always found this counter intuitive.
If it were real switch that mutes a channel it may make sense.
But if something is glowing I would assume it to be *on*.
Maybe like the status LED beside the real mute switch.
