Lives for gear

What I do with my TR-707 is program a bunch of different patterns. Then I record them into my DAW on a single audio track. I then chop them up in loops and move them around while I write and arrange a track. At the very end I program the entire drum track in the 707 in song mode and then record the drums on separate audio tracks. Yes, it's a bit of a faff but only takes 30 mins and you get that vibe.

I dont want to send the TR midi from my DAW as it just has a certain groove by itself (which may be imagined )

Best of both worlds.
