I searched around, but it seems im clueless enough to generate a question that is fairly unique, and I would appreciate any assistance or advice.
I was almost about to buy two old yamaha tx7's, but now software synths seems to the way to go for me. The situation will be like this:
I will need to setup my keyboard to play through the software synth, correct? But the problem I foresee is, how does everyone else put the stuff together to form a song.
My train of thought was always that you record the whole song in something like cool edit... track 1. Then you go back, and start recording track 2, while you then play track 1 as a backtrack, while playing the bassline or whatever, on the keyboard
Then, go back, and record drums(loops) on track3 while backtracking track 1 and track2 (example).
Surely this is not the method you guys use? I don't know how to workflow it in my head. What do you do? Do you record small sections of everything and then 'sequence' it into loops and place with software like reason/fruityloops?
At this point I probably sound like an idiot, but doing it in my multi track recording manner won't work. The tracks will interfere and capture each other while playing through the synth AND recording on the same pc. So i know my way can't be the right way.
So in fact what i need is to know how to put it all together, and (as a bonus) what kinds of software I should get. (synth, editor and a daw should be fine?)

Bringing it all together (from note to song) Im spinning out trying to collect my thoughts on this...
