I basically don't stream composition things because 80% of my workflow is listening to the same thing over and over again, and the amount of time I can browse my samples with chat is somewhat limited? I mean, maybe I'm overthinking it, and there's a lot of people who want to listen/watch me demo snares at 11 AM PST

@Ratttz yeah that's a thing I've run into, when I try streaming music composition people are so interested in seeing the process but then get very quickly annoyed when they find out that much of the process is listening to the same measure over and over again while I get the timing of an arpeggio Just Right.

@fluffy Yep. I feel like a lot of my work is also kinda condensed in time? I can spend hours tuning kicks, futzing with my mixer, and adjusting a growl, but all the "ideas" that a piece requires to exist might happen in like...twenty minutes.

@Ratttz Yeah same, usually the core idea for a song comes pretty quickly and the rest is just like... filling out the arrangement and tweaking it.
