I even find that a bit strange. I use whichever filter gets a particular job done
I certainly do not use -24db filters for everything, but my bass sounds are usually in the deep dark department and not the bright ones. Nevertheless I found the -12 db filter on minilogue very organic and dirty and made a few basses with this. I make leads and pads from highpass and bandpass filters as well.
I change things around all the time as a result of discussions here. Often it takes considerable effort to get useful information but why else would anyone bother with this place, if it wasn't to expand their horizons?
I am always curious to know about the ways people make music and what gear they use, and this can inspire me too. However, most changes happens when I learn about new or forgotten gear that fits my goals.
It depends on context.
I don't need to know what 'moog filter is not a proper filter' means to a person. I don't find "because the bass does not fall out as easily when using resonance control" tells me anything real, I would rely on my experience of it. Some people know more about certain things than I do but reading words doesn't work for me like that. There are a lot of people arguing out of their backside anywhere you go so it's all grain of salt for me.
When I first joined here, I knew virtually nothing about compressors or how to maximize loudness, any of it. So I found through other sorts of (more direct and personal) interactions people I first of all could see results from and heeded certain things they advised. And for example one of the main bits of wisdom, the gentleman changed his mind on majorly since, and I never actually did myself (a signal chain [mastering] type of thing; the usual received wisdom) but the concepts of that idea led me to independently research.
But had I not acquired the tools I use, which suit my kind of mind and made ease of use, I would still not know.
I'm not any engineer; I don't have the super-abstract kind of modi operandi to work with, I wouldn't be a person to do technical writing, etc.
I can't know anything from reading. (It's like one thing I say at the Music Theory board, you can't learn to swim from a book.) And a lot of the conventional wisdom - which a noob is liable to fall for - turns out to be hogwash. I find people accepting authority and falling in line too frequently, I'm a skeptic.
