When I switched to stricly using my Digitone/Octatrack combo for producing ideas, and doing the arrangement/mixing/mastering in Ableton. Super fun and tactile control of the sounds et melodies on the machines and very intuitive manipulation of audio in the box, with the added limitation of not being able to change any part ofter recording. Huge boost in my productivity!
And right now I'm discovering the "slope" parameter on SPAN which is amazing for "capturing" the tonal balance of a reference track when mixing. It dosen't do the mix for you, but it's a huge help to get you closer to a balanced mix

Having some fun programming beats on this borrowed DMX
and driving them hard on my newly acquired old school EV mixer.
Using the (really nice sounding) onboard spring reverb
and a couple Earthquaker pedals to wet it up too.
Sounds great.

Cold Turkey blocker app? I've been using Cold Turkey, Focus and SelfControl app concurrently. Helps a lot.

that's how a few professional do that i know in person. maybe they add a classic drum sample from the library to get a reference sound people can relate to.

A late nite insight: I just figured out that working with a cirklon shaped my sight on production fundamentally.

Now i do see the idea behind a compositional structure (even if there's not really a plan) as the task to focus on compared to explore possibilies and technological benefits of the options we have.
