The comments on most of them are brutal…
It can be a bit hit and miss, and you don’t really get the best insight into their process, as they’re not often talking through it. Just a bit of interesting fun.

Interesting interview/chat between Aphex Twin and Tatsuya Takahashi, the guy behind Korg’s Monotron and Volca lines, Minilogue, Monologue and MS-20 and ARP reissues.…
Ableton’s cool tutorial site. This is the section about song structure and arrangement and uses a range of simple breakdowns of tracks by Chvrches, A Tribe Called Quest, Photek and Donna Summer to illustrate.
Worth checking out…
Thanks for making this thread guys, It really had helped a bunch
Couple of short videos from Ableton’s YouTube channel.
Parts of a new series about the process of making music.
Not super-informative, but interesting…
Some interesting attitudes and insights throughout the first 8-9 minutes of this interview of Jack Antonoff, one of the writers/producers behind Taylor Swift’s ‘new sound’ (but don’t let that put your off)
Worth checking out.
Couple of articles from the PrimeLoops blog…
Decent intro to making basslines more interesting.

Uses modular here, but explains the principles, so can be useful within Auxy too…

Got this book on order. Looks interesting and useful…
It’s published through Ableton, but seems to be DAW-agnostic and mostly aimed at the creativity.
Available as print and ebook.
8 chapters are available at the link above.
Maybe @Tarekith can vouch for it.
I don’t feel like reading all of that… ;-;
I’ve read parts of it, definitely DAW agnostic. I’ve never read it but if I was going to read a book like this, it would be this one.
