Share your methods!!
I start with the inspiration which could be absolutely anything... a subject/title, a beat, a sample, a riff, a simple bassline, patch design..... and the list could go on
You can start with whatever, for me it's usually the beat or a riff. If I have a little creativity block then I'll probably make some patches and see if any of the sounds trigger that inspiration.
Just let the music flow whatever you start with, it will all come together in the end anyway
