As a newcomer I'm somewhat confused about the scope of this SE sub site. The sub domain "sound.stackexchange.com" tells me it is a broad sound oriented scope (and most of the questions I see support this), the title tells me it is 'Sound Design' strictly and the history tells me that a merge between SSD and AVP took place which widened the scope.
There is no other broad audio production SE, so where - if not here - should people put questions related to audio related gear, audio engineering, mixing, live productions, mastering etc?
Moreover the audio world in general is filled with rather diffuse and overlapping terms for the different disciplines, and there is a great overlap in knowledge in all of them, i.e. it is very likely that a person with bias towards specific discipline will be able to answer questions in other areas.
Studio engineer, Recording engineer, Mixing engineer, Mastering engineer, Sound designers, Tonmeisters, Game audio designers, Live sound engineer, FOH technicians, Instrument technicians.. and the list goes on. It seems plain stupid to set up that many SE's when the shared knowledge domain is that big. The tagging system could IMO suffice to identify relations.
So the big question is: why is this SE name biased towards "Sound Design" in its naming - why not just "Sound" or "Sound Production"?
