What’s up everybody, it’s Wednesday my dudes! My name is K1lowaTT, I hail from Northern Canada, and I’m here to give you the sickest lines on new underground tracks, upcoming events and parties, production techniques and resources,  and more. 

Hello yeet bois! Today we are talking music production. Five simple but very easy practices that will keep you sharp and keep you pumping out material.

  1. Tidy up. This sounds simple enough but is often neglected. If your environment is shit and uncomfortable that’s where your mind will evidently wander. Clean up your space, hang up some dope posters, a lava lamp, anything you could consider cool or could make your environment more pleasant or enjoyable to be in.Be organized this time in your digital space. Have folder trees set up and labeled. Know your way around your samples, presets, and template sets to mitigate boring repetitive procedures. Make sure your computer is running okay and isn’t stressed for one reason or another.
  2. Incorporate a pierce  or many pieces of “Gear.” Drum machines, analog gear (guitar pedals are a good way to start for cheap); or live instruments can add a uniqueness and dynamic to your music that sets you apart from others and establishes your own signature of sound design and composition.

  4. Try to limit time on single projects. I try to get a project exported in a few sessions if possible. It’s not a rush but be aware that there is a lifespan on project. They need to be completed within a time frame or stripped for parts.
  5. This is so hard… try not to tell people about your work until it is complete or finished. This is why the deadline on projects is also so important. We all like to show off our work. I’m guilty of sending out WIP’s. But you are shooting yourself in the foot. You show your friends and loved ones your incomplete art establishing a reward system that gratifies you for NOT completing or finishing your works to full potential.

Well I hope this helps someone to some extent. Tbh most of this comes from other sightings and personal practice. Happy Wednesday my dudes O>O

    THIS IS SO TRUE!
    4 and 5 took me years to learn!

    If I don’t finish composing the track in 2 sessions I loose my relationship with the track and just ruin it trying to turn it into something else. I don’t know how people do it. The only things I can do after a couple sessions is Mix down and Automation. I learned I have to have a full day no distractions if i’m going to actually compose a song or else nothing will get finished. If you only have a couple hours, its best to make samples and do sound design.

    5 is the holy grail of advice. I literally cringe when other people share with me sometimes because i know if i show ANYONE my unfinished track even my girlfriend. It’s not getting finished, or I will end up trying to fix, or change it. Furthermore it RUINS your release momentum because everyone you showed it to feals like they heard it and it’s OLD NEWS. They arn’t as likely to engage with the content later.

    THANKS GREAT ADVICE AND POST!
