The ears have it

It's both fascinating and refreshing to me getting deeper into the recording arts. Like High End Audio, the myths, legends, wisdom, and common knowledge base are a potpourri of fact and fiction.

Sorting through the morass of opinions on what's the best equipment, techniques and skill sets is a seemingly endless task. Each step along the way is like peeling back the proverbial onion. One bit of common wisdom dispelled leads to another to be sussed out as truth or fiction.

And everyone has a strong opinion.

I love it. No wishy-washy opinions in this field.

As with High End Audio, my methodology for digging down for the facts is basically the same: do the research, make your best guess, then listen.

Always listen. It's the ultimate arbiter of everything from science to pseudo-science.

It's at least comforting to know that even in a distantly related field like pro audio one can rely upon long-held skills for answers.

When it comes to uncovering the truth, the ears have it.
