I do not find the the "technical perspective" is valid, it is the music and it's energies that count not the process he used or he if he did use a non correct (if that exist) technical method.
Hearing this from the person who┤s praising here all the time "clear chain", "best sound quality", "best converters", "clean reverb tail" etc makes it a bit funny for me
So you really care about the process when you put on your headphones and listen to the music ?
it is the final output that matters not the technical aspect of the creating process, there is no right and wrong for a creative artist.
I see music from a artistic perspective not from a technical point of view it is what meets my ears that is the essence.
I think you confuse the creating process with the actual listening experience.
I do not like the "schooled/trained producer" methodology, who says that music must be as loud as possible and always to use compressors since that is what the school book tell you, for me it should be about turn of the lights and let your ears and non intellectual sense guide your artistic decisions. I despise all this schooled and trained producer people who are here to say what is write and wrong, they are not good artists rules are made to be broken.
The argument of using best converters, revervbs and all other aspect of the sound chain is it will give you better control, I think I have explained the concept many times already. I find about funny that you do not understand that simple concept.
I want to shape the sound according to my own sense, if I want very clean sound I can do that if I want very dirty and lofi sound I can get that, it gives you artistic freedom. If I was stuck with a behringer Reverb it would be a limiting factor for me, since all my music would sound like a behringer reverb, just one example, since you are an artist I should not need to tell you.
All to its own, use whatever method and concept that fits you best and I use mine, and I strongly like Opphois methodology so full respect to him...
Think what you want about Oophois methods I think his music is superior to most ambient as I said he is in the top 5 for me..
I especially like Signals from the Great beyond...
