Ever since I started making DnB about 6 months ago. I've always felt the urge to try and emulate some sounds of my favorite artists, you know, just to learn. But something inside always tells me to try and come up with my own unique sh1t. A lot of people tell me that I need to learn how to make "other guys" sounds that way i can get familiar with making DnB, patterns, synths, sounds etc... Because I never try and emulate sounds, progress has been slow and my DnB is not coming moving right along as i wished it would. I feel that if i wanted to try and make beats sound exactly like big names out there, I probably could. It's a shot to my pride, i say to myself "I didnt make that beat or bassline" so i usually never bother doing it, hence, the slow slow learning curve. Anyone have this problem? Or maybe im just a slow learner.
