We've had a few questions about audio processing that have felt perhaps slightly tangential to Audio Recording and Production to me, such as the topics about how to recognize notes, keys, tempo etc. On one hand these techniques are important tools in audio production, but knowing how these algorithms work or even how to implement feels a lot closer to Stack Overflow or other Q&A sites to me.
I started writing a comment to this question about perhaps not fitting quite in: How do song recognition services (like Shazam) work? -- but then I started thinking about the scope of Audio Recording & Production. As a software engineer I am certainly biased, but I think questions and answers about digital signal processing might be interesting too to the (potential) audience of this site?
How would Audio Recording, Production and Processing sound?
I realize I might be way too late to bring this up, and that the rest of the participants on meta have already hashed out the direction of this site. That's fine with me, I'm not on a mission to change and uproot and revolutionize. But I would like to see our number of members and the rate of questions grow much quicker than they have so far and maybe this would be a gentle way to increase the scope slightly without alienating the original intended audience.
So anyway, vote away! I wonder if there is a badge for achieving -10 on meta? :-)
