Spitfire Audio Forum Tips
Thanks for joining the Spitfire Audio Community Forum. This is a place where you can freely ask questions about the creation of music. Whether it's general questions about composing, technical queries about using Spitfire Audio products, or discussions about other sample libraries and hardware- we're open to everything here!
Here's a quick guide on how to get the most out of the forum.
Question or Discussion?
There are two options when creating a post on the Spitfire Audio Forum. If you are looking for an answer to a specific question, it is best to select "Ask a Question".
This will place your post in the "Unanswered" question queue- which is the first port of call for the moderators of the forum.
When you question is answered by a comment, you can also mark this as answered by clicking on the "Yes" hyperlink next to Did this answer the question?
This marks the forum question with the tag "Accepted Answer" which lets other members know that this question has already been answered and it will no longer appear in the "Unanswered" view.
Discussion is best used when you want to discuss a product or topic in general and are not looking for specific answers e.g. What are your Thoughts on Wondrous Flutes?
