I think there are questions that each composer needs to answer for themselves. What do they do best and what is best to delegate to somebody else? What is going to maximize their efficiency? I quickly realized that it was not efficient for me to try to do everything, to sketch, orchestrate, find all the sounds, do all the overdubbing, and do the mixing, because that was a very inefficient way for me to work. Every composer needs to build their team and customize their workflow in a way that is uniquely tailored to themselves.
