Just wondering how people come to a conclusion whether to apply a track effect or a sample effect.
I know applying track effects allows you to use automation, but on the other hand I have seen people use sample effects and then route them to the track with macros.
I’m not sure whether this comes down to personal preference or if there are certain advantages to the two which I am missing.
This also leads me to my next question which is about tracks in general.
Do you use multiple samples on the same track?
For example If I am working with multiple drum breaks and use them at different points in a track, why would one use a separate track for each break? I have seen people do both of these options and I’m just curious about the thought process for behind them.
Again, does this come down to personal preference or am I missing something?
I get overwhelmed when there are lots of tracks. I like to keep everything neat and tidy and reuse tracks given the chance.
