    I know that more oldschool and relevant people (by relevant I mean people that contribute heavily to the community) still use IRC to talk about these thinks, but these servers are kinda more secretive, and only invited people know about those

    Is there any place to meet normal plebs who just like to talk about this stuff?

    I'm not sure to understand what you're looking for, but Audiosex and it's chat box are here.
    I don't know of any private group concerning Audiosex (but it may exist).
    This not the admin policy anyway.

    Why would a website want it's members going to another website talking about itself. May be 10 or 20 members are doing this. But never going to happen for normal traffic.

    I agree, but you're actually wrong, a lot of websites and forums do have a Discord server, and if not, something equivalent.

    The reason for this is that sometimes people just want to talk about things, and making a whole thread just for that is kind of… pointless? I mean, not pointless per se, but it's annoying for users who don't want to see the forums' feed crammed with personal stuff, like: “Hey, my Waves plugs are not working, help ???” and shit like that

    I myself have some things I'd like to discuss, but I feel like annoying some users when posting “personal” stuff (by “personal” I mean things that maybe only I find relevant)

    I made a Discord : https://discord.gg/YSm9MNa
    Join so we can hang around.
    Notice that this discord channel is not by no means related to AudioSex or Sister site. It is just a place so we can chat.

    Hm discord is not encrypted.
    I remember the gold old Bubblefish IRC days :)
    Remember all those trackers ? lovely
    Fully encryption would be nice, and file sharing option to spice things a bit up

    It would be nice, but as I said, we're just regular members. I truthfully doubt anyone with the mad connections and anything exclusive to share would even join a server this public

    There was a Discord server I made for participants in Audiosexed Christmas release, but it was abandoned by everyone shortly after the project released. All audio-relevant discussions should be held on this platform, to preserve them for future reference. :yes:

    Yeah, you are right. The discord channel is not for asking technical questions there. It would be good to tell others and reference questions asked over here in AudioSex and to just chat about stuff going on regarding music in general. The point I want to drive home is CHATTING PLATFORMS WOULD NEVER REPLACE forums!

    Still, a Discord server enable closer collaboration within a group, as it comes with video and audio chat and screen sharing...
    It has its uses

    To be honest I'm not comfortable asking some things here. People tend to be unnecessarily rude on the internet, and love to mock at you for not knowing about something, just to be funny to other members, this happens often, and not always is deserved, sometimes people ask genuine and legit questions, and people are just arrogant to them, I see that a lot, not just here. In a more private Discord server, if enough people join, there's more room to sincere talk

    I've learned this behavior just shows that they are cowards hiding behind a screen, and aren't even worthy of your attention. Then there are those with a major case of the Dunning–Kruger syndrome, who actually think they know it all, and give bad guidance to those seeking advice. I say ask any question you want, and don't let the immaturity of anyone effect you in anyway. Personally I stopped caring too much about what another person actually thinks of me. It's not worth my emotional time or brain-space to attach their ignorance into my life. :wink:

    @ward0 i'm pretty confident you can ask anything music related on these forums and you're guaranteed to have very well put answers in less than a few days. being scared of asking something because someone might be rude is a bit dumb if you ask me! but i understand where you're coming from.
    still, feel free to ask anything IMHO.

    Yes mate, sure thing. I'm not actually scared to ask, but it's counterproductive you know, you waste time writing paragraphs, I myself am the type of person who likes to enter in details about things, and if someone just come to your thread to roast you or mock at you, you kinda wasted your time

    It's extremely rare here (and I'm talking about tech,(how to and/or which do you prefer for daws, vsts or vsties), crack (how to use) or theorical matters whether acustic, music theory, I'm not talking about things that aren't allowed in our rules like crack or soft requests), it's actually what makes this forum nice as opposed to a place like GS where members tend, indeed, to be a bit arrogant.

    I don't think this happens here really often. TBH, off the cuff, I can't remeber the last time I saw this here as long as you have a serious question.
    And as I already said in another thread, not to know something is the most natural state because we all know nothing when we are born and thus have to learn everything we know. To make fun of it is just stupid.
    As to my experience, here you can find a bunch of friendly and helpful people.

    Haven't heard of it before, learned something, again. :like:

    I think that the inclusion of audio and video is the main difference and that can be great for collaboration or demoing stuff.
    I've recently stopped participating in a Discord room that was created for users of another audio forum to chat about stuff, well, more intensely, more general and more off-topic maybe?
    It ended up being a total time eater for me with no real avantage over the other forum, but I can imagine it's a great place for people who like to chat, have the time and seek some entertainment :winker:
