I am constantly on the hunt for a more revealing audio experience.
When designing a new product or listening to a new Octave release, the closer I can get to revealing the truth of what’s captured in the recording the happier I get.
Can something be too revealing? Can a system dig so deep into the recording’s inner details that the sound becomes less inviting?
Too much of the naked truth?
I think that perhaps there’s a perfect balance of unmasked details and inviting coverings that do not conflict or overpower the gestalt of what we’re hoping for.
As in all things in life, it is the careful balance of elements that brings forward the beauty from within.
