I think from my experience in using different equipment and working processes to create, is that those 'rules' that might work well using one method, won't work as well in others.
I am thinking perhaps more specifically when comparing the use of multiple sequenced hardware synths etc with more classic routing on a mixer with external fx etc, compared to that of a more segmented stages of creating, using software and sound processing, perhaps no time line, and generally a less fixed process of creation.
I have found when using the laptop/computer for the majority of the work with the sounds, how I create, how fast, the gap to refresh my ears, the screen, not moving around the studio and the difference of standing to sitting have all been a difficult transition.
For me personally, and for what I consider is important for sound exploration, is that all techniques are just methods to bring sound into a particular and desired result with consideration to that genre and where that genre might be sound wise, at that particular time.
I have always felt that in electronic or experimental music, generally it has been in the final presentation of the sound, that has fallen to the more classic idea of 'correctness'.
Obviously none of this is right or wrong, but I felt it was an area of interest when considering the choices in recording techniques and what we consider 'good' sound and what we don't.
I feel it is not so much a question of using a 'particular' technique that should be the focus, but more to have an understanding of what each technique can bring to something 'if' it is picked, after all, everything should be a viable and useable technique.
