My work flow simplified (setup wise) dramatically after switching to
renoise (commercial, 49 euro):
1) start jack
2) start renoise
Besides that (and probably besides the point in this thread) I find it
1) Try to make a full length arrangement as early in the process as
2) Try to record vocals (or melody if instrumental) as early in the
process as possible.
3) Work on more than one tune at the same time, so not start one and
work on it until it's finished.
4) Go with the flow, esp regarding sounds and fx. Play around and get
inspired instead of trying to force my pre conceived ideas upon the
track all the time.
5) Be willing to write more tracks than I need, and be willing to throw
stuff that's doesn't turn out away.
6) When working on a collection of tracks (like an entire CD) take time
to listen to the entire CD from start to end (for me this happens mostly
in my car). It's amazing how much the order of tracks can affect the
conceived flow, including feel-good-ness of the whole.
All the above is of course a balance. For instance 1) shouldn't be done
before some kind of idea that can be sustained and/or expanded including
the individual parts (verse, bridge, chorus, etc) emerge. But 1) is to
avoid being stuck in a great sounding 2 bar loop that I'm not able to
hear in the broader context of an entire composition.
