Not necessarily. It used to be true for me, but since i got Loop4 into
my EDP I've also started to insert and cut very short slices of loops.
Sometimes, when doing that, it makes sense to play multi-voiced chords
to create dense harmony at one go.
Here's an example to illustrate what I mean:
Starting with only monophonical playing into the EDP but at the end
playing chords to cut slices by "substitute-insert".
All the best
