Some years ago I'm a analogue Instrument builder, during the development
of a Instrument comes two exiting points in the mind, 
1.) how would it sound
2.) how would it look and feel
without the "look and feel" a Instrument could come close to useless for
a Artist. That could differ from what a engineer needs to work.   
If you have a look at old Instrumental Building Books, you find a bunch
of stuff witch is only done for the "look and feel" of a Instrument.

So I guess the need to let something look good is older then Computers
are and Pixels are cheep this day's. ;-)
