Hey I am new to this site and would like to know if Music Production covered here?

I know that a proposal for one is going on here but does this SE cover it right now?

    On top of what Dave and topo said, if you ask a question here which is sort of on the edge, and it gets no useful answers, it is very easy to migrate it over to Sound Design (I'm a mod on both sites :-) )

(almost?) All questions about music production should be on topic here, tracking, mixing mastering etc. the main boundary I could see running into is generic audio manipulation, such as as for voice overs or sound effects, that wouldn't typically be on topic here. These tend to fit better at Sound Design and it might be the case that for some types of questions, they have better expertise in the relevant.

  • Did you mean to link to a particular question on Sound Design instead of to the site's front page?

    No, just to to provide a convenient link for any readers who are not familiar with Sound Design.

To echo Dave - Yes!

They were seen as fine a couple of years ago: Are Questions on Production, mixing and mastering allowed on the site? ... and things haven't changed on this point since then, as far as I can see.

It seems to me that most of the questions on the current Music Production proposal would fit here, and those that wouldn't would (as Dave says) fit on Sound Design.

It is true that we don't always get the most active response to some detailed questions about how to use particular pieces of software. But if there's a group of people with expertise in this area who want an SE community, them coming here would solve that!
