with working, daily life interruptions, listening to it over and over, in the car, through headphones, monitors and pc speakers, then tweaking it and then listening again until i get it to sound the way i like. I say about 1 week

i'd say about 4 hours on average, sometimes a lot more but rarely less than 2 hrs.. it's also spread over at least 3 days if it's a bigger project.

Most of the time 2-6 hours (including chopping). Sometimes 40 minutes. I rarely plan to work on a beat spread over more days. When I start one, I finish it. (So I just don't start a beat when time is short). Although since a few weeks I often change a lot of stuff the day after I 'finished' it. And occassionally I might start working on beats again that I did a few weeks or months before because I feel it could sound doper if I changed the snare around, or added another layer or something...

Anything from 15 minutes to a few days. Depends on the distraction.
