I'm building a music application which can create a mix of songs to play for you. What icon can I use to represent this feature?

  • Post that as an answer to add to the list more formally. – Keavon Mar 16 '14 at 2:37

How about a music note or a music CD made out of puzzle pieces?


I really like this icon for Simple Playlist App on the iTunes store:

Very literal playlist icon

Alternatively, you could go with something more "mix" related:

Shuffle icon

  • I thought of the shuffle icon but decided against it as it could be confused with the other common feature, shuffle. – Keavon Mar 16 '14 at 2:37
  • You could combine the music note and the list the opposite way (ie. 1/4 note instead of 1/8) and have the bars coming from it that way. But this might be a UI question rather than visd question... – SwankyLegg Mar 16 '14 at 2:39

Probably you would like something like this one -

    That's a rather complicated icon, but perhaps simply a turntable would be good. – Keavon Mar 16 '14 at 17:47
  • I definitely like the idea of a turntable, much easier to made into a simple shape – Yisela Mar 16 '14 at 21:24
