The next step will be mostly to rhythm or bass line or the chord structure, depending on the style im producing or the idea to work. The comes the sound designing and orchestrating. A partial mixing will be maintained from this stage, like Gain staging, parallel compressing, splitting or allocating frequencies for respective sounds. If melody is needed, it could be looked into by now. By now, an initial draft could be sent to the client to get the idea and the progress of the work. If there is a Next step is to add additional electronics like FX, fillers, etc. Upon confirming from the client that whether the track meet all its requirements, can be forwaded to mixing if needed then mastering from there
