all fonts are specified in the GTK rc file (ardour2_ui_dark.rc for the
dark theme, ardour2_ui_light.rc for the light theme).

in the meta-file for this (ardour2_ui_dark.rc.in) the font is specified as  	

   font_name = "%FONT_BOLD_LARGER%"

the actual font names are specified in the gtk2_ardour SConscript
file, where that particular setting is:

       sans bold 24

there is no reason that it should be a serif'ed font.
