It's helping me a lot! Once I get a flow going that works for me I promise to make you guys proud. I'm actually a talented song-writer and producer. Sadly, I'm a perfectionist, who often gets caught up in the little details and gets lost. I need to simplify so I can create. Continued thanks!

I'm seeing the added benefits of using N3 in standalone and then transferring to the Multitrack/DAW. I'm just not sure what I should transfer at this point. I know things change from project to project, but I need to figure out a basic way to work and go from there. Now my questions are:

After creating almost all the sequences in N3 . . .
Should I record audio from N3 to DAW? With or without FX?
Should I record audio and midi from N3 to DAW? With or without FX?
Should I record midi only from N3 to DAW and run the Instruments and FX in the DAW?
. . . and so on.

Jim has given me/us so many options. Very flexible, but I need to zero-in on a basic way to work and then adjust according to factors that come up along the way. I do have the beta of U-he Diva and as mentioned . . . the CPU hit is heavy, so that's a factor. The CPU heavy soft synths may have to be printed on the DAW.

I really appreciate hearing how you guys work. In fact, I think it would be kind of cool to have a thread whereby users indicate their common workflow. Is there such a thread?

If not, let's create one. That would be really helpful to new users and experience alike.
