A dozen posts and you have already descended to this level.
If you are not ready for robust discussion of your biases and mistakes as an audio professional, then this is not the place for you, because it will happen from time to time. Egos need to be put aside.
I mean, congratulations on your achievements, and to repeat what I said earlier in response to your fourth post since joining, welcome to ASR; but this forum is in general dedicated to progress in audio, both in technical excellence and in perceptually-preferred techniques and approaches. It’s not about appealing to one’s own authority, or looking for things to call stupid as you did in the above personal attack, but instead, asking how the latest in audio research can be used to make one’s next audio project, be it production or reproduction, an improvement on one’s past projects.
And on that note, what opportunities do you see, based on audio science, to make your next project a step up from anything you have done in the past? Maybe start a thread on that.
To be clear: when I wrote "stupid aliases" that was not a direct insult.
It was a response to the clear implication that I am a liar, by someone who is hiding behind an alias, who himself has just misused my use of my real name to quickly google incomplete and inconclusive info about me. The "insult" was not named directly at that alias, nor at that person. It was aimed at the situation. If you did not see the distinction, so be it.
To be very clear to this community : if you feel insulted, by all means I sincerely apologize
. I do understand why you want or need to use an alias.
Now, if someone can explain me why I get a big slap on the fingers, but the person who triggered it not I would be very obliged. Maybe I should just have reported the post straight away, but on some forums that is a much bigger perpetration.
Could we agree that if you use an alias, and want to do a personal attack, you can do it through a personal conversation. Not in an open forum, because that will very likely trigger a "stupid" response. As an andecdote, last time that happened to me was on Gearspace, and the person that did the personal mail was banned for life instantly. I will not repeat here what was written, it was about something else than - dare I say it ? - "stupid" numbers...
Now onto the second paragraph : I am ready ! But you are forgetting there was a direct attack to undermine what I wrote. Is that a robust discussion ? Where is your post to defend me in that regard ? Do I need 1000+ posts to be eligible ?
Third paragraph : that is what is of interest to me as well. But it is very complex. Nobody listens the same way, even when in the same room with the same playback system. I have personal experience that indicates even I (myself) listen differently when a client comes in to listen back to edit nr2. The presence of the other changes my perception ! You can understand that makes me question some research with test subjects... in groups especially. I need to progress in the direction I took, I need to go out every time for a recording in the belief this is the right approach. The moment I start thinking about what is generally preferred I need to stay home ! I do not like what is generally preferred. Most major label's chamber music recordings is what got me into this business for a start (they were generally appalling). Is this appealing to one's authority ? It could seem that way on a forum talking about basic things, but believe me, I am not the type of person who never questions what he is doing. I started out during purist recordings - only one stereo mic, no postproduction (except for editing). Now I am at a point where I could completely fake it ... There are several paths to improve, but then the industry needs to get back on track. As a stupid example, microphone development at Sennheiser is laughable the last decade. They are my preferred mics, but the good ones are getting out of production, and no replacements in sight. Sigh ... Sennheiser was a company that was based around the ultimate recording mic. Now it is not.
Fourth : cable microphonics. I do not have a budget to put 30K of cable on stage, but I found some mic cable that is really a lot less microphonic. If you consider the lengths of cable on stage (in an orchestra playing loud !), this could/should have a serious impact, especially with ribbon mics which need high gain. I just need to find time to do some soldering, then we can see.
To conclude : next time I will not respond to direct attacks. I will just use the ignore button.
