GNOME latest designs reveal the new windows controls that are planned to arrive in GNOME. Let’s check Music latest designs:

Allan Day will soon print a detailed article about it. Till then, get a look in the GNOME Recorder!
- Simplify and modernize the interface.
- Provide a straight-forward way to record and play previous records from the interface.
- Handle the saving process automatically. No need to worry about accidentally discarding the previous recording.
