Music production software offers endless potential for fine-tuning tracks (aka ‘tinkering’). I imagine your approach to be quite meticulous, so how do you avoid falling into that trap and deciding when a track is ‘finished’ ?

I do go to great lengths to feel that a piece is complete (enough) and I tend to live with multiple works in progress for quite a period of time in order to know they belong in my repertoire. I’ve many pieces that haven’t seen the light of day purely because they’ve not entirely met with that criteria. Sometimes it’s not easy to see the end point of a piece and tweaking minute details is something I would do rather obsessively. So the short answer is that I don’t avoid falling into that trap however I don’t see it so much as a trap, rather as a determination to seek the best result.
