There is a tag called and a tag called . Should not be a synonym of ?

  • I would liek to see some tag descriptions added. Otherwise the meaning (esp. a general word like "sound") will be vague and possibly incorrect.

    I think it would be much more useful to get rid of sound and use specific tags. Feb 27, 2015 at 1:55

I'd say that they are not synonyms, but closely germane.

A question like

What does define Pink Floyd's sound as 'experimental'?

would be tagged with .

Whereas a question like:

Why is the sound quality of a track reduced when it is compressed into a .mp3?

could be tagged with , but fits better here

  • I agree with this, but the sound tag needs a good wiki if it is to remain Feb 26, 2015 at 15:56

I think sound is so broad that if it is allowed to stand itelf, it will inevitably encompass other topics - such as those relating to reproduction media, sounds in records, live sound etc.

sound-quality as a subset of those topics seems specific and useful.
