I've been very challenged by the fact that technical sound science english is not my native language, but I did work on a 8 bars loop copied 30 times.
That has been a new and creative way, since I've always been working my breaks on this loop while creating new drum patterns A1-A2-A3...
Also, the mono thing about synths, bass, I never knew mono was still used and why it should have. Very interesting indeed and my mixes are sounding better.
What enhancements did you felt in your works?
