    Hey guys,
    how is your production going?
    To produce a track, I need influences, ideas, creativity and a clear mind.
    There are times, I sit in my studio in front of all those synths and controllers and have no idea what to do.
    I call it the uncreativ times.
    I mentioned, if that's the case, don't push yourself to do something. It won't work.
    Mostly I leave my studio alone, read a book, go outside...

    Do you have this problem too?
    I got that ever month 4 or 5 days. I don't matter that much about it.
    Just wondering, if you are constantly working on your stuff and forcing yourself.

    And what's your producing time?
    My most creativ moments start round midnight :teeth:
    They call me Mister nightowl.

    At the moment everything is well and I'm working on some badass filthy Dubstep Track.

    Have a good night my friends.

    Cheers D

    We aren't talking about your period.

    But there already is a thread on this, basically just go out and take a break, and still think about producing. Maybe read a book about your daw or whatever

    If I'm stuck for ideas I just try to make some non dnb music. Breaks or downtempo or something.
