"If you want to personalise artwork for your own created software synthesisers; samplers and effects modules this is one of the very best! Back in the day creating your own animated and dynamic knobs and faders was quite tricky using Photoshop. But now, this freeware platform simplifies the ability to create dynamic animated artwork for your synthesiser creations."

Below is a tutorial video from Alan that takes you through some of the fundamentals in creating animated and dynamic knobs and faders.
