Here for the gear
For sure it depends on the song-
I do always start by listening and just pushing the faders around a lot. A lot.
Then I just make smaller and smaller moves after figuring out what makes the song really tick.
It's funny. Sometimes you can mute tire elements and the song holds up-- like muting the big drums and it still feels good as a song.
Or muting the guitar and bass and it's just vocals and snare and it STILL works--- so you figure out what's actually telling the story and then build around those elements. Finding the "DNA" of the song informs all the subsequent moves.
