I had to listen to hear what all the controversy was about. :)
I tried a 24db low pass filter at 500hz with Q=0.1 on it.
This sounded much better to me, as it got rid of the crackling noises
which were making it unpleasant for me to listen to.
With the crackles gone, the variations of sound, pitch and tempo were
more discernible and it made more sense.
If it were my music, I'd do the low pass and then put the occasional
chime from a glockenspiel or metal bar, recorded acoustically and
absolutely as natural sounding as possible. There is so much space left
after low passing that a few metallic sounds would just drift above it
That's what I think anyway. I actually like to listen to this kind of
thing. I would put the genre as 'electronic/minimal' though, rather than
house, as 'house' has a very specific meaning to me. (house=boomtish
+annoying high pitched female vox)
