For example, take your fave synth or loop or whatever and try using an increase in number of channels allowed through that first track as a means to manipulate the most minute aspects of that initial sound...before it even gets sent to other tracks and/or effects...manipulate the source before it gets outsourced and use whatever parts of it (not length but harmonic structure [?]) that you'd like...or not... and then start checking out your fave vst on those chunks...

This instead of long chains of vsti stretching out toward the horizon...which is still kinda fun...

edit: I shoulda just said feel free to move around to the sides a little before moving ahead..

dang it...
