I'm curious as to how others make their tracks.
How much time do you spend on one track and what do you do first?
Do you create all of sounds and lay out the meat of the track then automate, or do you automate and edit as the track progresses?
I ask this because I never create a track the same way and am looking to streamline things a bit. I'm not looking to follow a specific set of rules that would interfere with the creative and spontaneous music creation process but would like to know from some of you that have created many tracks If there are things you in every track that make things more efficient.
