    I blurted this out on Jules' thread, and it gave me an idea for a new one, dedicated to discussing ideas and experiences with utilizing editing features on the VS, as well as any other sequencing gear:
    >>I'm going over all of the tunes for my upcoming CD and copy/pasting bits and pieces of tracks all over the damn place with the Track Copy feature. Once ya get it down, it's a snap, and loads of fun at that. You can always hit undo if ya don't nail it, but timing mistakes can create unexpectedly cool results. I accidentally pasted an orchestral bit a measure too early to a part of one song, and left it that way because it created a nice variation to the original sequence. That gave me the idea to copy random bits of tracks to random places in the song, and then copy the combinations of edits repeatedly to create hooks, and the results have become totally absurd, but sublime at times. I'm a big fan of artists like Warhol, Man Ray and Duscamp, so I'm really digging the work environment that digital sequencing provides right now. The notion of exporting these experiments to ProTools for further destruction is making me drool a bit.<<

    What has digital editing done for you lately? Any cool discoveries, or tried-and-true tricks? Or is there something that you want to do, but haven't figured out how yet? Let's break it down and break new ground...
