Just a look inside the writing process for Rob and I. Some people may find this interesting. Recording is a big part of the writing process for us. In this case, Rob had some riff ideas that worked well together and we decided to record them all. Then I use the magic of digital audio (copy/paste) to sequence it out to our liking.
When we have it sequenced in a way we like and all parts are written, then we record the whole thing from scratch in a very analog style – i.e. no copy and pasting.
