    i usually either have a sample or a melody first. then come the drums, then usually bassline then i work on additional and chorus elements. then sequencing and mixing.

    i work mainly in logic audio for my sequencing and mixing and use some of my vst instruments but i use reason whenever im sampling to get an idea of what the drums should sound like.

    I usually lay the drums in first, or the bass line.

    Not usually a melody.

    i find the song ima chop up

    i listen to the whole thing, then i go back an listen again, an stop at a point that i think sounds hot an that i can sample...i do that until the song ends. i end up with about 8-15 samples usually, i eq, reverb, stretch, pitch, compress, watever i feel like duing to the samples. then i make a boom bap drum skeme an build a melody with the/or some of the samples around the drum skeme. then i re-open the drum skeme up and make it more complex and fit the melody better. then after the drums match the melody, i lay the bassline down over the drums, so the bass always hits exactly where its supposed to, to match a drum sequence or melody. then, i adjust the pitches of the bass, so that all the notes of the bass are right for the drums an melody. then i adjust all the volume so i can hear the drums clearly an the melody wont overshine the vocals or drums, an make sure the bass is loud but not overpowering. then i mix it down, for the main loop. i dont htink u wanna hear how i get a full beat though haha.
