Sorry..it's not my intention to be rude to anyone, but I honestly think the answers to rudimentary questions like this are basic common sense really and don't even need to be asked..just do a search online and there is more than enough detail out there to keep anyone reading on the topic of a long time.
Sound Design? Ok what part of producing or playing editing arranging programing, colour choosing.... what part is sound design?
Yes to all. If you are asking what it is to us as producers I can only say for certain on my behalf that it's everything that makes your sound as unique as your own fingerprint. Your methods of course will determine your own ability to attract mates and followers alike, So be sure to ask yourself "Do we really design sound or does sound design us?"
it is literally the two definitions of the words you just wrote combined into exactly what anyone would expect those two words, when combined, to mean. this is like asking me what room service is. it is someone providing service to your room. sound design is designing sound. kind of like how sandwich shops are shops that provide sandwiches. like how video editing is where you edit a video.
oh god i made a troll response to a fucking shitty question and you took it literally.... that is just genius.
wasnt really trolling, was more like a cast into a underfished still pond with a fishing float and powerbait, or shotgun/barrell. however no use in denying how easy it is here to land and go home with your limit.
