Something ive been asking myself several times when starting a project in Ableton Live, Cubase or StudioOne 3.
Especially when creating drums and arp tracks. I have some synth and drum plugins which has in built internal sequencers/arpeggiators.
Do you prefer programming the patterns inside these vst sequencers or do you prefer to have the midi notes on a midi track in the daw?
Or both? Im trying to figure out how to ease the workflow when starting a new project and are curious how other people deal with it. And especially why you prefer it this or that way
