    is anyone one else like this.

    I think at that crossover point with my production where my sounds are starting to sound better and my knowledge is getting better but now i seem to have my song writing capabilities that used to come naturally...
    im finding it much harder to be happy with the melodies and arrangement in my tracks, almost to the point of destroying every tune i work on at the minute. I usually work on a track for a long time i dnt put them together fast, cos I can be a bit of a self perfectionist, not necesarily getin the tracks sounding technically perfect but perfect to my ears, the sound i want!
    I come to work and its on my mind a lot thinking about getting home and tampering with tracks maybe to finally get it all fitting together well. it sounds sad and obsessive but Its how it is at the minute...
    writers block really is frustrating!!!!!! :ban::ban::ban:

    maybe ill go listen to some classical jazz flute for some inspiration

    i had this exact problem. when my techniques starting getting good i felt like i couldnt write anything like id lost all the musical ability i used to have... its just a stage.. So just work on the technical side for a bit just making loops or whatever until you are ready to bring everything together!!

    either compose or produce or mix (if you know what i mean)

    that's a stage you get in just before making a huge tune you'll love. What works for me is, leaving that exact sound for tomorrow or completely start a new tune. You'll get yourself working on so many projects that you won't be bored of working on the same anymore. That leads me to be (when not on a huge hangover like today) like 24/7 on music with a feeling of satisfaction at the end of the day.

    im terrible at this, i go through stages of not being able to make a beat, then one day, without forcing it, things seem to come together when other days it seems its never going to work ever again. just cant force that shit one bit
