Hey all, I took a huge break from production and then lately I've just been inspired to start up again. My biggest issue seems to be not knowing how I want something to sound. A lot of the time my tracks are really mellow and it's hard to break out of it. I'm still a beginner when it comes to everything, but I'm slowly getting better. I'm just wondering if anyone else had this problem starting out. Most of the time when I'm making a track I let things flow and I'm not too controlling, I find when I start forcing it things just get ugly and then I end up just putting stuff in for the sake of it being "right" instead of what sounds good to me. Sometimes I think I get too caught up in worrying if it sounds too simple and worrying about technical stuff. Or I start comparing my tracks to others too much. Have you ever started a project and felt really good about it, but then wanted to try something else a few days later? It's like some days I'm digging the mellow vibe and other days I want it to be more energetic, but it's like the two ideas don't mesh well together because my mindset was different when I made it. Almost like I'm bipolar with the music.
