Come up with the ideas and do the crazy synth tweaking stoned, mix it down straight.

I like mixing sober, writing can go either way, but I looooove performing altered, especially if we're talking improvisational music. Amazing things happen, and it's been verified by countless recordings, not just imagination and delusions of grandeur ;) It doesn't require herbs, but it sure helps.
