This was an intensively mixed sourdough (natural yeast) with 30% ripe preferment.
I was experimenting with "no time" (Chorleywood style)doughs at the time, so no bulk fermentation and no rest.

You get a slightly more open result with a short bulk fermentation, but for my starter 4 hours from mixer to oven is about right

Great! I'll have to google "Chorleywood bread" to find out more. Fascinating! Now I'm guessing the 30% refers to your starter as a portion of the flour weight? What was the hydration percentage? Thanks, Jackal10!

From my notes

Sponge
200g flour
200g water
10g mother starter
Ferment overnight warm (12h to 24h)(90F)

Dough
All the sponge (33% by weight compared to flour in this step)
1Kg flour
600g water
20g salt
1g Vitamin C

Total flour: 1200g
Total water: 800g

Mix intensively (food processor) for 2 mins.
(I would now let it rest 15 mins)
