Re: How many tracks do you make per week/month/year?

Haven't finished a track in years but thats about to change this year!! I have about 30 open tracks and just selecting which ones are going to go with the various projects I am involved in, then I can start wrapping them up one by one!! Feels good to finally be gearing up for another release, been way to long!

Re: How many tracks do you make per week/month/year?

Sometimes I make a few instrumentals in a day. I've made up to 6 complete beats in one day, that was my best. If I have an explosion of creativity, I'll drop everything else that I possibly can and stick to making music until my inspiration or creative drive wears away. Prolly most I made in a week might be between 10 and 15 completed instrumentals.

Re: How many tracks do you make per week/month/year?

I've been trying to force myself like others have said to finish my uncompleted ideas, so on average, with all the stuff going on in my life, I get about 1 done per month.

Re: How many tracks do you make per week/month/year?

I'm probably more like 1 track every 10 days... But ticked 1 a week. That's not to say each song is worth uploading or pursuing. But from a compositional point of view, I'm always at it! I'd say about once a month, something strong enough to really run with comes out...

Re: How many tracks do you make per week/month/year?

over the last two months i've record about 50 jams but would be hard-pressed to call any of them an actual track. i havn't tried to make a proper song since then. its become more of a video-gaming-like experience: thow on the machines in the morning for quick jam before work, skip breakfast / come home and switch them on first thing, skip dinner / repeat.

Would love to be able to make a track per two weeks, but the number is sadly closer to one per month/two months.. Maybe in summer.

Re: How many tracks do you make per week/month/year?

To be honest for the last 6 months I've been on and off touching up different projects here and there, then this month I've knuckled down and 4 of them are now finished. It really depends on what's happening at the time to be fair!

I don't keep track, once I was able to make some self indulgent thing of decent quality within a week's time I kind of fizzled out

I only get to finish about 5 tracks per year. It`s more a time thing, would like to make more tracks. I rarely have a full day of time for music.

* consensually of course

Re: How many tracks do you make per week/month/year?

i used to be able to pump out lots of tracks but only when all the room and gear conditions were top notch for me. Now i really only do on average 2 per month sometimes less sometimes more. My sound quality has also gone down over the years. In some ways i work better when i'm excited and music doesn't usually excite me anymore. Growing up sucks.

1-2 a month sounds about right.
