Working at the source
You'll fix it in the mix... right? Wrong! That's why I'll try to make sure that this phrase never makes into your home studio.

:-D all those examples, they made me laugh
But your right. Most time in the studio is spend trying everything out.

And yes if you need a percussion but can't find the right thing try jamming on a table top with some pencils with some weird effect on it. You may be surprised what you end up with

Remember that weird song?
"da da da" preformed by Trio
That amazing casino math ruler synth sound.
Just great :-D to use a kids toy in their preference.

It's not about what you got to use ....    but how you use what you got...

Totally agree you shouldn't approach a project with a "Fix it in the mix" attitude. While there are some amazing tweaks you can accomplish when necessary, I've "overdone" it plenty of times and wound up trashing a mix and starting over. There is no substitute for a clear, quality recording. If the source needs that much help, record it again.
