I'd just like to get some perspectives on intros. How do you go about doing an intro? Do you have a specific formula that you go by? Do you try to keep in neutral so that it's easy to mix in?
One thing I've noticed is that I tend to have chord changes and musical content in my intros, which makes it a little harder to mix in to other tracks sometimes. Is that a big no-no?
Do you guys think it's neccesary to have the chunk of solid drums at the start for mixing purposes?
Tell me all you know about intros.
