    Hi guys.

    Just wanted to share my latest track, i'm happy with how this one turned out, i'm still learning how to get these big tracks to sit well in terms of the mixing and use of reverb (common problem with me)
    I know this one ain't perfect either, but i did learn quite a bit from this production.

    Also id like to mention that while producing this my wife could hear what i was doing, now she does not normally poke her head round the door while i'm producing but in this instance she did, she then sat there with me for 5 hours producing this thing giving me a shit load of ideas on things that would sound good and that didn't sound good, she really enjoyed it too and it was actually really nice getting another ear and viewpoint during a production...anyway sorry for rambling on, enjoy the track lol :laugh:

    Holocron you can produce sound at the speed of light and the speed will not influence the depth or the quality of your tune. Maybe the focus on becoming a more adequate producer is about produce a polished track within an hour and mastering the polished track in another hour and then being "finished" and have something to upload that is of high quality and has been properly mastered and that is all fine and dandy but the speed is not the absolute focus in the project it is the conception that is the focus and that primary directive is navigating the internal frequencies of the sound and gaining a sense of independence with those frequencies in that there is no seperation from the frequency and the self in the sense that there is a oneness with the desired frequency and its continuity. Nihilus and Dr. Bishop both resonate on a level that is desirable for the need for sound and its healing properties.

    wuddup peeps!

    Looking for some Feedback and help with my tracks.

    I can never seem to get a consistent final mix. Another thing is random volume increases and decreases in sounds, is this due to over compression?

    Any way if you could have a listen to my tracks and lemmie know what ya think, that'd be awesome. Thanks.

    Love your tutorials Tom! You come up with great stuff and it gets me thinking in a different way. Plus you're funny as shit to listen too.

    One request on a video tutorial tho. Song Structure... I can create sounds/melodies/chord progressions/etc.etc. but for some reason when its all said and done I have trouble placing all the elements together and having it sound like a fluid song.

    I almost have trouble taking things away because I've become so attached to a certain sound or rift. haha

    anyway... CHEERS!

Why Producing In-The-Box May Be Holding You Back

Being able to make a fully-fledged song on nothing more than a consumer laptop and a decent pair of headphones is a truly amazing representation of how technology has progressed over the last two decades.

It’s cheaper, faster, and easier. The immense joy of musical creation is no longer a luxury reserved for those with money. Instead, it’s readily available for any person willing to dedicate the time and patience.

But this advancement and opportunity comes with a few caveats, one of which is that the music creation process in the eyes of a bedroom producer has been flipped upside down, chopped-up, and compressed into one holistic task.

Is this a bad thing? No. Not at first look, at least. Every producer has a different workflow, and in my opinion, anyone who stays in the game long enough climbs out of the ruts and moves past difficulties in that area. 

Despite this, there is a problem that many developing bedroom producers encounter. The problem of frustration: not being able to finish tracks, taking too long to finish them, or trying to grasp at the enjoyment that you once felt when creating music. This sense of frustration generally has more than one cause, and this article probably won’t fix it, but it may help some of you.
