As an audio pro myself I will strongly welcome an audio pro forum here. Although DIYaudio has been growing very much in the last years there is still much ground to cover. I am also looking forward to consumer versus professional discussions, about the ambivalence of values and methods, about different necessities of creating and/or re-creating sound.
There are many audio pro forums in the net nowadays, but no dedicated DIYforum for that. Think of all those compressors, filters and preamps possible, and also software resources experience sharing, soundcards mods etc. I think also that the lot of non-pro computer audio users here could probably get certain profit.

ad astra!

Klaus

Good to get input, and all these votes help us determine how much interest there is.

However , remember that we can't do this until we get new software, which should be pretty soon.

WHEN we get the new software installed, THEN make sure to bring this up again- don't let us forget.

I am a pro audio guy, and I come here and scan the everything else, musical instruments, tube, and solid state foorums, looking for exactly that - the scattered pro audio stuff.

Hi Enzo,
This should make it easier. The problem is we could duplicate almost every audio thread in pro audio. There may be some mixing.

On the plus side, the pro guys can network more easily.

Guys,

Could I make a suggestion in the most diplomatic of ways... or at least try?

Might I suggest opening a forum or two, or four? Perhaps: 1) live, stage, and sound reinforcement. 2) studio, recording, and mixing. 3) dj and karaoke. 4)??????

Now, let the experts change/refine the names as they see fit. My only concern is that everyone from chipamps to plasma speakers made with powder Rhino horn ioniziner, would like to wear the badge "Pro" on their projects, systems and beliefs. Pro falls in to some distinct categories... but pro means: doing it for living.

For the sake of diplomacy, I will keep the balance of reasons for this suggestion largely unsaid.

My question is how far should we stretch the diy part? It's nice to have the discussion but does it reflect the interests of the principal(s)?

I love pro gear, and the stuff I own for sure, but most of it seems to be assembly, is there much diyAudio in it?

Well, to be honest .... We are going to get a similar amount of "got a schematic for X?" and "this doesn't work so ... ?" along with making jigs and getting gear to talk to each other.

This is okay in the current threads and the discussions will be interesting I'm sure. So I wouldn't worry about it too much at the moment. You may even learn how to setup and calibrate a Studer, and what tape (Agfa) to avoid.
