Welcome to the FAW forum! ( FAQ inside 👇 )

Welcome to the FAW community forum, it is great to have you on board.

The developers are all present here and we’ll try our best to help resolve any issues you are having. In order to keep this forum running smoothly and efficiently, we’ve put together a short list of how to get the best out of the forum.

Improve The Quality Of The Help We Can Give

Help us make this a great place for FAW users.

In order to help us, help you, please following these step when making your post.

  • List your operating system and DAW you’re having an issue with
  • Try and list in a clear and concise way exactly the issue you are having.
  • Review your post before submitting and try to only post relevant information that will help in getting to the bottom of the problem.
  • Take into account public holidays and weekends before reposting your issue or requesting a faster response.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But, remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling.
  • Ad hominem attacks.
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content.
  • Knee-jerk contradiction.

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Always Be Civil

Nothing sabotages a healthy conversation like rudeness:

  • Be civil. Don’t post anything that a reasonable person would consider offensive, abusive, or hate speech.
  • Keep it clean. Don’t post anything obscene or sexually explicit.
  • Respect each other. Don’t harass or grief anyone, impersonate people, or expose their private information.
  • Respect our forum. Don’t post spam or otherwise vandalize the forum.

These are not concrete terms with precise definitions — avoid even the appearance of any of these things. If you’re unsure, ask yourself how you would feel if your post was featured on the front page of the New York Times.

This is a public forum, and search engines index these discussions. Keep the language, links, and images safe for family and friends.

Keep It Tidy

Make the effort to put things in the right place, so that we can spend more time discussing and less cleaning up. So:

  • Don’t start a topic in the wrong category.
  • Don’t cross-post the same thing in multiple topics.
  • Don’t post no-content replies.
  • Don’t divert a topic by changing it midstream.
  • Don’t sign your posts — every post has your profile information attached to it.

Rather than posting “+1” or “Agreed”, use the Like button. Rather than taking an existing topic in a radically different direction, use Reply as a New Topic.
