Default Instrument Picture

I would like to suggest a feature which I think it is kinda helpful. If PLAY can show a picture of the instrument when you click on it or load it. Some of the instruments are very well known but I find a lot of them unfamiliar, especially percussion and ethnic. A picture can help a lot to predict the sound and save your time. I have 8 EW libraries, so the number of instruments is really huge.

+1 for aesthetics.

I just fear that for the percussion libraries itīs going to be very hard.
For example: Gypsy Percussion includes a bass, snare drum, washboard, tambourine, cymbals and yells in one .ewi file.
Only one or two would be able to be depicted.

But for the rest I agree. A small picture would be nice (while not necessary).
