I prefer the brighter version. In general the slightly increased contrast will also make the graphics more accesible to people with bad vision. So I suggest to go with that version (and update the other colors).

Sounds like this is the one. Let me update the grey color on everything else so we have a unified look.

What software are you using to design your artwork in the first place?

As it turns out, even though the SVGs you provide are indeed fine, this format might not be the optimal format for integrating into OpenMPT, because we probably have to convert the SVG to EMF+ for actual use (a conversion which Inkscape apparently cannot do without introducing unbearable artefacts and/or extremely huge files).
It would probably be useful to provide the original native file format of the application in addition (which would be needed to properly support potential future updates to the design anyway), and in particular, if supported, could you export also to .emf (preferably in EMF+ format ("Enhanced Metafile Format Plus Extensions"), but EMF format ("Enhanced Metafile Format") would also work). Might also be called .wmf ("Windows Metafile format"), however, please try to make sure to use the newer EMF versions if at all possible.

Regarding the design, I have nothing to add to what has already been said by others :)

I'm using the newest version of Adobe Illustrator and I'm afraid the file formats you mentioned are not supported but I can provide you with the original files if that helps.

Are you checking the export menu option? According to this help article, EMF should be supported: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/exporting-artwork.html

That was it. I'll export it as emf then. :)
