In Reply to: RE: Dunno. I haven't read Ludwig's views regarding the formats you mentioned. posted by Rick W on May 29, 2017 at 12:14:27
Ludwig embraces every new format so he can be a "go to" remastering engineer. Doesn't really matter what he thinks of the format, as long as he can convince the labels that he knows how best to take advantage of the new format to create a product that will sell. He has become very wealthy (and powerful within the industry) from staying ahead of, or at least at the crest of every new format trend.
Reminds me of a realtor I know who focuses on high end beach front properties. One of his prospects walked away from a house because the realtor wasn't a "LEED Certified" realtor and the house in question wasn't "Green" enough. Turns out a realtor can take a few classes and earn a LEED Certificate certifying that the realtor is knowledgeable about "Green" living environments and building concepts. The realtor thinks it is a crock of sh$t....but got the certification to set himself apart from his competition. He later generated additional business because he was "certified".
I guess Starving Artists is still the Model.
You think his comments about MQA don't represent his true opinion? You think he's getting paid to comment positively on MQA?
Ludwig is waaaay past having to "convince" potential clients to hire him.
"Ludwig embraces every new format so he can be a "go to" remastering engineer."
Obviously its part of a mastering engineer's job to keep abreast of new formats/techniques so they can satisfy the wishes/requests/requirements of their clients in whatever format *their clients* choose. Ludwig is a "go to" mastering engineer simply because his clients like the results of his mastering, not because he's a shill for new formats/techniques.
If we want to listen to recorded Music, we need people like him.

Audiophiles can be such jerks.
I'm sure he's much more than competent.
If God was doing it , someone would complain.
Utterly spot on.
The only thing he has an opinion on is if a new "format" can make him even wealthier.
