Okay, like a lot of people I often build up tracks in patterns of 4 and/or 8 bars.
If you insert a single bar break/drop (could be a drum break, vocal samples, anything that creates a break, pause, stop etc) do you then go back to counting a further 4 or 8 bars from the end of your one bar break...or do you assume that the single bar was bar 1 of 4, or 1 of 8 and then add another 3 or 7 bars to get you back to a whole number?
I know there aren't any rules but I'm curious what other people think. Does it depend on whether the break keeps up the flow of the track or whether it's a definite pause point?
That's it! A nice simple question.
