Okay guys, just think about it. You start off like this: Hey, today i want to make a harsh jump up tune or: Hey, today i want to cook a fucking STEAK with POTATOES and shit ass VEGETABLES. You need ingredients (synths, drum hits, samples), but you don't go with the cheap shitty ones, because in the end it will taste/sound like shit. You can't spice a shitty peace of fucking steak in a way it doesn't taste shitty, as well as you can't eq a fucking bad recorded drum sample in a way it doesn't sound like shit. YOU buy the best fucking meat you can get aswell as you buy the most badass sounding drum hits and all those crazy synths you need for a tight production. Next is cutting your ingredients. Get your knife and cut those damn potatoes and get rid of the peel (low frequencies that everbody cuts off) because no one needs that shit. Build your first 8 bars of the drop because that's the basics you need for your arrangement. Now this is the best step: BOILING, ROASTING, ARRANGING, BUILD UPS, BREAKS, FILLS. This is where your meal gets the character of the artist. Slow boiling, fast boiling? Olive oil for frying? Melody build up or just heavy elements? It's up to you to make the best out of your meal. Next step is probably the most important step: SEASONING or also known as the MIXDOWN. The reason why it's so important: if you do a lot of stuff wrong at this part all the previous work was for nothing, reason? It will taste/sound like shit. Doesn't matter if you overdo or if you season too less. It's probably the most difficult thing and you really need a feeling for it, that's why it's so difficult for everyone who starts cooking/producing. Last but not least it's now time to make your meal perfect. This is usually the time where your GF comes with a spoon, tastes it and tells you that it needs more salt. Usually one of those moments where you want to freak out because you already spent so much work on your baby and then someone comes and fucking tells you it needs more SALT. Anyways, this step is also known as mastering. Only thing that's different: after finishing your meal you can fucking eat & enjoy it instead of spending hours and a shit load of money on finding a label and doing distribution, promo, etc. Well, anyways. I came up with it this morning in the shower, i'm wondering if anyone else already had the same idea, lel.
