When I first started it was sloppy as f#ck.
Then I started working with templates, having everything color coded and have EQ's, compressors, side chains all ready to go in auxes and linked to tracks that might need it ect.
After a while this got limiting. So I did away with it, now everything's sloppy again. It's annoying only sometimes, when I'll totally change a synth only to find it's not the right synth.... ARGH!
But otherwise, it feels more open creatively. I just had to learn to trust my skills as a producer/mixer and just jam it out and tighten it all up at the end on the fly. Sometimes it's like your going by on the seat of your pants but that's half the exhilaration of it all
Also, it's beneficial to moments when you're not in your stu and collaborating with someone else.
You can always use an ordered setup, but if you're used to an ordered set up and have to jump in something sloppy, it might break down the collaboration.
