Mr. Edler,

I am enjoying all the info that you are providing.
I have written a song, but I feel a bit stuck, and I am not sure what to do next with my session. In my session, I have my drums, bass, keyboards, pads and vocals. I like the basic arrangement I have, but at what point do I need to start using EQ, compression, reverb and etc. When do I start bussing tracks around? When do I use a spectrum analyzer? When you are composing a song and you finally have all the instruments in your session as you wish? What is next? What is the proper way to progress to the end as far as production? If you could give me a basic outline of how I should progress, that would be so helpful. Don't quite know where to begin with putting all of this together.
