As you know, for several months DAS has been on deafen. Due to the rapid growth of the bot, problems began to appear while listening to YouTube videos. We decided that the first step in optimizing the music was to put DAS on deafen.
Did this help? Of course!
This has reduced significantly the bandwith usage (quite logically, DAS does not receive audio packets from what you speak on the voice channel), we also help Discord because it no longer sends us those packets.
This also protects YOUR privacy, we know how important it is especially in 2021.
Although, even before we made this change, DASBot did not save anything related to voice.
If there are problems with the music through DASBot, the self-deafen has nothing to do with it. You can always ask for help on the support server.
