So after thinking about how long I spend on a song (only to not finish it-which is ok, im still perfecting my 'style'/sound/approach) I did a little search. I found this thread: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]
with great great great
advice from Trace Elements ( good job man!
I thought it would a good idea to make a thread about the little 'discoveries' you all have found to help you get your ideas out, or help push you towards finishing a song. Whether it be get those synth midi notes down, or structuring etc just general tricks you use to 'streamline' the process.
For example I took note of the effects and channel structure I was often using for creation and made a template (audio channels with built in effects + busing) to work off of instead of starting from scratch each time (and then using my own saved presets). Although this is probably is obvious to many of you, I did spend quite a while not using it on any of the DAW's I worked with so I assume there must be at least another person in the same boat.
So again, what do you guys like doing to make things quicker/easier? Normally I would never post such a thread, but there seems to be a lot of different approaches on here with great depth, maybe some of you can introduce techniques to each other that you never knew. Even just obvious things that work well for one daw may open doors for others on another daw.
Hopefully this is a good thread, and don't hesitate to share, because again obvious things can be over looked!
