How do you disable the sound on startup? I believe there are some guides stating pressing the home button 15 times will disable it, but they are old and no longer appear to be valid.
I find the sound to be unprofessional at best and cringe inducing at worst. While I realize it is not intended as a business tool and professional may not be what it's looking to present, the remainder of the effects are fairly well made and far less polarizing. I would prefer a more generic sound effect in line with the rest of the application (if anything at all on startup) and in absence of that a way to disable it. Many other sound effects are customizable. Why not this?
I understand some may like the sound and that it's likely popular in the target demographic (except maybe "worldwide art community"), but I feel like the application is doing itself a disservice in this particular category. Hard to take the platform serious in any way with that particular effect in place as one of the users first experiences with the application. Startup sounds are already intrusive and a bit of brand pushing I don't particularly warm to. This one in particular has me rummaging through the internet for posts a year old to shut it off and makes me want to disable Discord itself on system start (which would seem counter intuitive for any brand management efforts).
