Reply To: Stuck in a creative rut – suggestions for these three WIPs?
It’s something that a lot of people struggle with, switching from a loop to a full song.
One thing you can do is grab a track from an inspiring producer, and analyse each elements, when does he put risers, what kind, how does some new sound come in/out, how many bars before a switch and what not. Villem’s video explains it quite well : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihDtFr3NSbA
There are a few videos on here where producers break down their track and how they’ve been constructed (Dose’s, Signal’s sound design ws 2), and this one from Signal : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umiEebm93IU
Dub Head streamed building a whole track from scratch in 3 hours, there are no commentaries but it still helped me a lot : https://www.facebook.com/dubheadua/videos/1536293466410880/
Hope that helps !
Also I love the percs in Hayabusa, rolling biz ! 😀
