work fast - work slow

with modern DAW's I like the fact that you can work extremely fast. back in the ol' days that used to be good too. getting a band together, setting up the mics quickly and let it roll. I personally believe that too much editing slams the life out of music. happens to me sometimes as well. but still: working fast, really works best for me. I prefer recording quickly with Ableton Live instead of editing with a Protools-set.

what about you then?

i guess the only reason that " kills " something is not knowing what to do .
sadly that happens 80% of the time heh or was it 95% ?

its good to have the daw , so at least we can blame it ... IT ruined my mix ...
actually it was just me

quick & dirty ... if it takes to long , it gets boring , if it gets boring , myslef at least loses the focus . i really LOOK up to those who do a mix in 20 minutes .
those skills save a lot of nervs & time ... maybe someday ?

My best mixes are the ones that I got the sounds right at the source before tracking, and then keeping it simple after that. The ones that I agonize over every part and spend the most time on never sound as good as the ones that I basically "track and mix" and be done.
