So I have hit the 6 month mark of my music production (and I'm still clueless)

I made an album after one month not knowing much about what i was doing just by ear.

I gave it to a relative.

Last week I gave them my latest album having worked hard on music production and learning all about it.


So they said they preffered the 1st album lol.

Though this one sounds more proffesional

Great go figures.

Album 1 made on instinct
Latest album made based on using generic ideas i guess?

More you learn less you create? I dunno?

I think 2 things!!

1. I been making tracks every day and moreso copying other songs to try to learn than be creative.

2. Using fruity loops I have been just makind loops and patterns and copy pasting.

I think i should STOP using FLS??? Maybe its making all my music the same?

Sure patterns and loops are in all music somewhat but FLS makes you lazy and rather than change things up just copy/paste etc?

Or maybe not? ANy thoughts on that?

Think ill take 2-3 weeks off completely though..to allow new inspiration.

Re: So I have hit the 6 month mark of my music production

While you might find another DAW more suitable workflow wise were you to try it, it's not FL Studio that is making all your stuff the same.

Six months is merely a drop in the bucket.

really?

i think at first I was just making music..SO my new album was creative music,

I think my latest works are not creative music but moreso training songs.

I,e following tutorials and replicating but with my own ideas.

So my recent works been less creative and more practise.

OH my GOD, Six WHOLE Months?! I guess you're done now, don't need to do it anymore :3 nothing to see here, move along.

Seriously though, 90% of us don't give a shit, the other 10% just want you to love them.

BY ALL MEANS, Rewir3d. Usually we're pretty cool about the JayMSay shit, but when it's in the Side Room... Like, it's here for a reason. If he's asking questions about theory in the theory section or something, best to try and help him out. But here, fuck it.

Fuck you, JayMSay.

For sure! And I see how well people try to help this dude out in the other areas and their patience with his shitty topics...than he pulls this. He is a fucking troll in his own right

Wait only 2-3 weeks off? Shit all legit artists know that after two weeks of strong production that you need at least a month break from everything music related (even forums). Damn no wonder you are going backwards, you're overheated son!

Plus heroin during your dowtime will do you a world of difference too! Go out and experience an STD or something fun to stimulate your mind.

If being inches away from death doesn't inspire you to write spiritually fulfilling music, I don't know what will.

This. Buy a different DAW for each song you make to keep them from sounding the same.
