Why this forum is so quiet... (hint: Discord)

edited September 2020 in General

We mostly chat about BM3 in Discord these days.

Come and join us.

  • Except there’s no historical searchable record in Discord, right? Chat is all well and good, but it doesn’t suit my needs.

  • Ditto, I prefer forums as well.

    Just hope BM3 gets at least a few updates during 2021.
    I'm back to desktop with Renoise & Logic Pro and use the iPad as a sound-module to sample sounds from...

    Cheers!

    Agreed. Discord is great, and does include a searchable log, but it's not the best tool for keeping an organised thread-based historical record in the way that a forum does, which is why we are still active here on the forum (although with slightly less frequency).

    I give up BM3 too. As it look like a living dead theses days.
    Still hope for a miracle

  • I wont be using discord, i came here cuz it was a private non-data-mine forum that was easy to find what i was looking for and had an awesome group of people. Yo, if its not broke, dont fix it!

    That's fine @cyp3 - I avoid Facebook for similar reasons - then again, some of the toxic users you find there are just as compelling a reason to avoid.

    The beauty of Discord is that there is zero-advertising, and there's nothing I type there that I would be uncomfortable being data-mined.

    We're still here and continue using these forums.

  • Yeah seems real quiet around here these days and I haven't been on Discord much either but then I've hardly been using BM3. I think that could change if it comes to the Mac M1 Mini tho!

  • Im sorry to keep going on about it, but I just went onto Discord and its a complete mess. It looks like a fine place to hang out and socialize but I have no clue how to find solutions to problems there, or research specific topics, its all on a few long messy lists. I was expecting somthing better than we had here, we have a good thing here.

    if its not broke why do we need to fix it?

    If everyone else leaves, I will still be here till they boot me or till apple breaks BM one last time and dude loses his mind and decides to go get a job working for apple making tamper proof dongles or whatever devs do when they lose it. 👻

  • I'm slowly but surely starting to loose interest in BM3. The phase at which development or lack thereof is going is beginning to look like the product of really bad project / resource management...

    WWDC'22 is upon us in a few months time and I won't cry or miss BM3 if iPadOS16 breaks it...

    Cheers!

  • I’m here because I can’t find anything useful in Discord. I went to the link shown above and what I found doesn’t even seem to be about Beatmaker. Am I missing something?

  • It’s because Intua keeps removing purchased sound packs, the app keeps crashing, it’s extremely hard to use for beginners, the app is immensely flawed, the beatmaker grand piano sounds like a cat dying , not enough instrumentals in the soundstore, no customer support amongst an enormous amount of issues!!!

  • Can’t believe anyone has the nerve to ask why the forum is so quiet as if the beatmaker 3 is a grand prize

  • Hey guys, I’ve just joined this forum because I am having trouble with BM3. 1. The timing just sounds off ! I am quite experienced at chopping up sampled loops and getting them sounding tight but against a kick drum I have everything sounds out a time !
    2. I’m using BASSalicious and sometimes I hit record and start to tap in a bass line with the virtual keyboard and it won’t even record what I’m playing. And now sometimes as I record as I hit the first note on the keyboard it has a fit and changes to another channel !
    I would really appreciate it if you could let me know if BM3 is at all useable or has it not been updated for so long that it is always gonna give me problems. Thanks so much in advance, josh 👊😎👍
