Re: what is your greatest strength and greatest weakness music production wise?

I'm not sure what my greatest strength would be - but I know that mixing and mastering is a big hurdle for me. Definitely a weakness.
Sometimes I want to say the hell with it and just pay somebody to master my stuff.

Re: what is your greatest strength and greatest weakness music production wise?

I find that mastering your own stuff can be challenging due to the fact that you are so familiar and attached to the material. An objective listener can be quite helpful.

Re: what is your greatest strength and greatest weakness music production wise?

strength = creative use of samples/source material

weakness = basslines. Funny because I am a bass player by trade.

Re: what is your greatest strength and greatest weakness music production wise?

My strength is that I could see some of my songs getting a lot of fans if given the right exposure.

My weakness is that I don't give two shits about getting fans.

I don't know what my strength is but I could go on and on about weaknesses. Starting a project is a big one, and for some reason drum fills always kick my ass. Finishing a project is another because I get to a point where I've heard it so much that I want nothing to do with it. It used to be that it caused me to be ashamed of anything I cranked out - it would always sound too "mechanical" or cheesy after the 5000th listen through and fuck, if I listened to anyone's mastered track after working I'd suddenly spot a million shortcomings in my own. I guess my biggest weakness would be my general outlook. I'm working on it but drum fills still kick my ass.
Study some real drum fills. It'll help a lot. For me listening to stuff like prog rock and really eclectic hardcore always inspires my drum glands.

Or, just replace all your fills with snare rushes.

I think you actually have two strengths right there.

my strength and my weakness: not giving a shit about my music

the plus: made some awesome sounds
the minus: the unlistenable bullshit that I make

Re: what is your greatest strength and greatest weakness music production wise?

My strength lies in the very first stage, which is coming up with ideas for chord progressions, melodies, basslines etc. I would also say I'm pretty good at arranging.

My weaknesses are anything technical. Starting from production, through to mixing, then mastering. I suck at all of that.


EDIT: Threads about music do not belong in this area.

Strength: Giving some tracks the 110 effect.

Weakness: Not giving all tracks the 110 effect.

(The 110 effect is 110% into said doing.)
