I like how you think that having sensitive hearing somehow ought to magically make me a TED speaking "influential engineer". ha ha!

I wish that was true

Social anxiety is a bitch though, and having a sensitive hearing mostly just means that you're constantly bombarded by other people's noise.

I'm basically living like an outcast at this point.

But anyway:

I only seek out and cut at precise zero crossings if I'm doing repair work or splicing two versions together. Otherwise I'll just cut and fade where it sounds good.

Also, sometimes jumping from zero can actually add a nice popping or clicking sound to a sample, which can than then be modelled with eqs or filters (analogue filters are especially well suited for this). If you use auto-fades on everything, you'll never even hear those sounds.

So instead of discussing what you think I can or cannot hear, I'd rather urge you to try to be open-minded about it and maybe check it out for yourself.

And of course, just do what works well for you. You lazy sod

I never cut the grass btw. In fact, my lawnmower hasn't left the shed for years and is probably rusted shut by now. I actually prefer it like this - as do the animals that live in the garden.
