When writing a tune I used to bounce my individual tracks simply to save on processor power. But it’s now an integral part of my creative process.
When I bounce something (ie record it to an audio track), it’s set in stone in my mind. It’s unlikely I’ll mess with it because its a hassle to reload the original part and synth, sampler or whatever.
This focusses me on getting the part right and forces me to move on. I avoid the dangerous temptations of perfectionism and maintain precious momentum.
So as you create, keep on bouncing those parts. Boing boing boing.
