i was wondering about the possibility of creating a discord server for pianobook
al least for my discord is a very reliable and robust platform
and can be use as a forum as well
what do you think?23 May 2021 at 6:35 pm #3143
A good discord example is Vital, Mat Tytel’s open-source/commercial synth has a discord with over 6000 members, in just a few months of existance. Often with a thousand viewers, and people contributing presets, wavetables, and video tutorials among the discussions.24 May 2021 at 4:13 pm #3145
Should we create a server?
I think could he a good idea24 May 2021 at 7:47 pm #3147
Ups sorry i did not check my spelling , i wanted to say that for me Discord is a good way to interact with the community my bad sorry that’s why i asked if you guys think is a good idea.24 May 2021 at 11:37 pm #3149
Bo said, “Well, you only need another 5998 to make a ‘good example’ assuming the two of you are in.
I’ve said it before elsewhere, I’ll be washing the pots…….”
For the record, the example I mentioned was due to it’s positive impacts, not the headcount, which I was surprised by. 6, 60 or 600 people can be a good example, and have a positive impact. There are many lurkers who benefit from helpful discussions, and pass things along in the shadows. And shadows have very little staying-power. (My wife wonders why I don’t use the electric dishwasher, but I find it theraputic to slow down, and stay in touch with real life for those short but relaxing breaks spent with the pots, pans, forks, and glasses etc)

Here are some nuts and bolts regarding having a discord,
Good ideas almost always cost someone time and money. Time spent after paid career hours
also has a price, The word ‘free’ is often used, but less often accurately. I consider
the Pianobook sounds and software to be quite valuable. So if I can contribute, I will.
I suspect Christian and Dave routinely max-out their contributions, and expect that
a new discord would require more than meets the eye. I’ll guess 4 people, an admin,
and 3 moderators in different timezones, each with 30 minutes per day, split in 2 or 3 logins
throughout a day to keep track of the joy…strictly a guess!25 May 2021 at 9:00 pm #3151
i assume would be just more work than fun i guess ….26 May 2021 at 6:48 am #3153
I asked Matt Tytel, Vital synth author, his opinion on the value of the Vital synth discord, and he thinks it’s worth the effort.
So those deeply vested in Pianobook/DecentSampler, can ponder how an ‘official’ discord might benefit the commecial side of Spitfire, as well as the benevolent aspects around it. It’s good luck to spend some time spying out the land, before invading…
After briefly observing three discords, they appear to be a bit like reunion parties populated by smart and helpful souls, and those moving in that direction. The colorful interface brings with it a certain lightness of being.

ohhhh interesting, well i am certainly interested on the idea of the idea of start a server with the community of pianobook
create channels for different sampling formats
(kontakt,exs24-logic,Decent sampler Wav-files etc)
share some Daw projects, templates MIDI files
sharing of your work.

thanks friends28 May 2021 at 4:35 am #3160
And verify the idea does not reinvent the wheel, perhaps the meat of the idea exists in other discords already? But my car has four wheels, despite my best efforts to make it three, sometimes…
Spitfire/LABS/Pianobook might draw a great crowd.8 June 2021 at 4:33 pm #3219
