Hi Dogma !
Sounds like fun, although my methods of working vary greatly depending on the project I’m developing at the time. I do a lot of ghost writing, so depending on the sound I’m looking for, I’ll go for different approaches. Mostly, I use OT, A4, Tempest and now AR as my sources of sounds. All samples I use are recorded by myself, with a mic, or generated in Reaktor using user created ensembles.
I tend to write on kit for a while, then dump stuff in Live 9, one track at a time, jamming it as it goes in. As tracks pile up, you get this nice, organic interaction between them, that is impossible to predict, or orchestrate. I do spend quite some time editing in Live, but not nearly as much as I used to before I got the OT. Now I try to do buil ups and create movement as stuff goes in, and simply edit and arrange after so that it makes sense.
Maybe if you have particular questions you could PM me, and I’ll focus a tutorial on those questions, as I ’ sure it would benefit others as well. Sorry for high jacking this thread, I just got a bit carried away
