We switched to Jitsi for now because of the annoying time limit in Zoom:

Links that I said I'd share during the meet :
-Folk music from the island of Krk.
-Musescore, a free and open-source program to write music sheets.

That was quite cool !
Thanks again Neko, for making the thread, thanks bloodhound for actually organising it, and actually... Thanks SG for the original idea

edit : here's also Philippe Vachey's symphonic album on Spotify. Sadly it's only the first CD, I couldn't find the piano songs.

I enjoyed that. Thanks to everyone involved! And thank you for the links, Polaris.

Also, not just doing this to push my own music, but on the subject of sample libraries, here is a piece I wrote using those orchestral sounds (although I replaced the lead part I played in with my friend playing it on an actual violin.) I think the technology has got pretty convincing...

Not sure if I wasn't clear enough previously regarding Discord so I'll attempt to clear up some of that confusion. Video is possible in voice chats and that is also true on the Little Big Community server. However the limit is only 25 when video is used, down from 99 when only voice is used.

I'm glad you found an alternative in Jitsi and seems like it went well, it's a good choice that I didn't even consider.

Yeah, doesn't need to register, just to click a link. Quite convenient actually.

I enjoyed it, too! I feel also that it's a much better format for reaching a common ground on some topic than debates on the forum, if we compare the virtual meet discussion to previous discussions about war crimes by the allies (before CS2x joined) we had about wokeness and about handing out infractions.

Did we discuss anything controversial that could have been disagreed upon? All I remember is talking loads about music (which I feel a bit guilty about as not everyone is making music. :-D ) But then again I did come late, so maybe you guys were talking politics and world affairs before then. :P Either way, it would be great to do it again.

No, just how quickly that thread got out of hand.

We were discussing mostly how my proposal for a mbn meet got polly married in the end

Don't feel too guilty. I found it quite interesting to learn a bit more about how music is made. Next time I might try to steer the topic somewhere else sometimes
