To speed up the song writing process, I set up a "template" file that
has all my favorite instruments pre assigned along with my preferred
key, and tempo, along with a simple drum beat to get me going. When
ever the song writing urge hits me, I can quickly pull this pre
defined file up, write my music, and then "save as" to save the song
(make sure to do this so you don't mess up your "master template" ).
