looks like a good idea, but (there's always a "butt") posting the dry pictures of arrangement w/o mentioning wich track is what, and describing the FXes used, seems useless. I've got a track done, where one wouldn't find a single clip and still tracks works - the actual sound source was a mike and to force it to sound like music I've created quite long fx chains…

I believe the point was looking at an arrangement as an abstract visual piece, and no actual intention to correlate that with the audio specifics going on.

Not my own work, but it's damn beautiful. A track made by Mr Bill with only one instance of operator and a shit ton of automation:

To the OP:
The image you posted is beautiful. I think I'm gonna do one of one of my tracks and hang it on the wall. A whole new genre "Arrangement Art"

it's true. they got rid of MIDI and replaced it with the mp4 format. all GM tables are currently in the conversion process.
