I came out with this question. It came to the chat, and I asked, if this question belongs to Sound Design SE or if it is allowed here.

Then @DrMayhem said:

I don't think that question would work on SD. It isn't about sound design. Here, I don't really think it works that well either

The Audio & Video Production SE became Video Production right?

But the Sound Design SE don't clarify their on-topic question. Then, I go down to the search, find this and this question, it is allowed there, but when I check the on-topic question (thanks to @Meaningful). It says:

and it is not about...

  • identifying a song, genre, instrument, etc.
  • shopping, product or music search, or buying/selling recommendations
  • audio production techniques and equipment
  • listening recommendations or recommendations of pieces to play
  • requesting a list of resources
  • legal issues

So, do question like that on-topic or allowed here?

1 Answer 1


As long as you're recording music, or sound for use in music, or it's applicable to recording music, then such a question is definitely on-topic here. We used to refer people to Audio and later AVP sometimes in case they could get better expert answers, but obviously we can't do that anymore.

    Makes sense. But what is the "audio production techniques and equipment" intended to discourage then? May 26, 2014 at 17:44

    @MeaningfulUsername I think that just need to be updated. Even originally it was a poor way to distinguish us from the other site. I've removed it :)
