    On your average tune how many different tracks do you have?

    I'm just interested! I know my current style is quite minimal but I only really average at about 25 different tracks. (By tracks I mean Instruments, Audio, etc.)

    I just wonder as when I watch some of these masterclass producer videos they have like, gazillions of bits and bobs going on!

    Re: On your average tune how many different tracks do you have?

    I got 99 tracks cos a bitch deleted 1. Honestly about the same, 25-30. That's not limited to. If I pushed my cpu I could have treble that but don't need to. I sometimes render tracks for processing and then keep the others in there, but muted, in case I want to change something. I bring in templates or drum racks set out in a group adding another 5 tracks. By the time the track is complete It would have slightly less from 45-55. The range varies.

    My most recent track - which has to be my favourite and most proud work so far has about 50 tracks- basically all audio ones as well as my macbook cant handle too much cpu from plugins.
    Although you don't need loads- the more sounds you have in your track - even if they are just really subtle, surely makes things all the more interesting for the listener- as long as each sound adds something cool and blends nicely

    It varies from track to track. I've had a track that sounded full, and got good feedback here, that consisted of about 7 elements in total! Yet I've had others that have had around 60+

    20 to 80 at a guess. depends on a lot of factors. drums alone usually takes up to 20.

    Varies from track to track but generally about the same as you, if you're counting sends/buses that goes up significantly.
    It'd be sick if you checked any of the links above

    Re: On your average tune how many different tracks do you have?

    Oftenly, when I see people's photos on Facebook of their projects - I usually see about 40 (or even more) tracks, but that's only because I think they're really happy with what they've made, which shouldn't put you down if you don't produce that many tracks in a single tune. If it sounds good to you, don't overkill it. I guess it all comes over time, right?
