    I'm finishing my session of yesterday + this morning.

    From 7pm to 5.10 am, almost 12 hours! I didn't even notice the time -it just flied away

    Now I'm really proud of this tune I did... I need to go to bed but I'm not even tired! I have some work to do in the day, I really hope I don't get any calls for work! Cuz then I'm fucked!

    I plan not to sleep until I finish this.

    This is one of my longest session .. I never measured others but I'm pretty sure that is one of my longest. Back in the ganja days I never managed to go so long!

    I noticed I really love sampling as of lately, btw.

    if any1 wants to hear what I've been doing so long, I'll upload a clip but haven't listened on monitors yet, so I'll wait till people wakes up and blast and see the mixdown.

    I've said to myself. Let's do an 5 track DNB EP, that will be good, took me ages to get back in production shape, now I'm the happiest person alive ,or better I would be if I wouldn't be so broke right now.

    To clear things up, I probably went over 12 hours a few times ... haven't been working for so long without stopping since the last winter.. but I don't even remember ever doing it for so long without a break.

    I'm on headphones atm, I hope it won't sound shit on monitors! tell me about your longest session

    my ears normally get tired after a few hours. also sometimes get loop mong - where u heard the same few bars of a break over n over n over.
    so after 2 hours will walk away for 10/15 mins then come back

    I'm not actually sure what my longest session (in one sitting I assume you mean) has been man! I am certain it has not been any more than a few hours.

    I have had days in school holidays where I have got up at like 10, had some breakfast, opened up Cubase and went for it. I stop for breaks and like lunch and that but thats how a bulk of my tunes get done (minus finished mixdowns) :)

    plus sometimes I stay up until the early hours of the morning but at night I often get tired and lose motivation... :/

    I was going to go for one of those production days to day but I am just going to chill this morning and then get a mixdown done this afternoon :)

    4-5 hours at most. It's proven that you will suffer from "ear fatigue" after an hour of intense listening, certain frequencies become less apparent. That's why a good 10-15 minute break away from the computer each hour or so is good for the mix.

    I actually meant of course a break, life stand up, smoke a cig drink a coffee something in the house , I had those little breaks of course.

    Yeah? I don't usually work on headphones but I can't do it at night. I can blast till 00.00 usually it's then when I switch to headphones. Have to be careful yeah

    about the ear fatigue argument.. IDK lol, I know it's true but somehow I managed to finish it and listened on monitors and I like it yeahhh
