Which of these myths have you guys found yourselves believing?

When you said that this is the only social platform you are using, that resonated with me because I hate social media and love making beats, not sure where that leaves me but I can assume it's going to be challenging getting noticed this way. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR A GUY LIKE ME?

I think I'm special. Learning everyday I'm not BUT I do work harder than most to achieve my goals so I'm confident still.

I used to believe that I needed to create all of my patches and beats from scratch. It made making music a tedious chore and I felt uninspired for a very long time, not to mention it made my mixes trash. Now, my mixes are a little better, and I can arrive at cool ideas faster. It’s a freeing feeling, being able to knock out a song more quickly and then going back to edit the mix later.

I would just add one thing: when you feel stuck or your track is finished and you can't figure out what's wrong, leave it. Don't listen to it for at least a week, preferably two weeks or even a month. Then listen and you'll know immediately what changes you can make. Then you'll improve. Work on something else in the mean time.

@Meloonatic Beats before I studied sound design I made tons of beats that I had to give up on because I couldn't achieve the sound I was after. Going through them, 99% of them have potential and that's the upside. I have plenty of material for inspiration or a remix. In other words, I completely agree.

This is spot on. There have been many tracks I’ve made that I spent too long making, and gave up on. However years later I listen back at lots of old tracks and realise that they actually do have potential. Never delete your projects

Sound advise right here. If you don't do this, you could ruin your song and or kill the inspiration for it's particular vibe.

Thank you Lowan! Yeah, sometimes looking at your own bad habits/ideas can be the hardest thing to do. But breaking through them is necessary to develop better ones.

There's this layer between a beginner and their DAW. They don't actually hear what they are doing. This was such a big problem for me, I actually thought I had something wrong in my render settings and FL was the one messing stuff up. I broke down that layer a lot by listening back to the renders, sending in links for critiques, and just practicing in general. Active listening while you are making your beat is definitely learned. Your brain can make you hear something different from what you made.

Oooh yeah, this is definitely something I suffered from. When you are making a beat, you are most likely hearing what's in your head, and what you want the beat to sound like rather than what it actually is. It's like that quote, the idea is always the best when it's in your head. Every step you take to translate it onto paper (or into a DAW), it gets one more step removed from that initial idea.

Navie you are totally right, I agree with you 100% I just make my YT channel to share my “work files” to find people like me, share experiences and feedback. and I know it’s a long journey on front of me. I start make music a year ago, and i felt in love. I try improved my skills and push my self even I don’t have mood and energy after 8 or 10h in my job. But always I try to find time sit and try create sometimes I have a lot of fun from the joy and sometimes is “pain” but end of the day I feel I do something to be better at. Sorry for my grammar but I hope you get me. And all of the people reading this comment, don’t think you are the smartest or the greatest in making music because always out there someone is “better” then you just be happy that you can learn and improve everyday wish y’all the best ✌🏻

Definitely. It can be tough when you have dozens of excuses flying around in your head, telling you that you shouldn't make music today and watch TV or do something else. Ignoring the excuses and doing it anyways is a skill, just like making music itself. It needs to be practiced.

Making music is a dream since childhood, I'm inspired EVERYTIME I get my hands on the gear. I spent so much time dreaming about having gear for music production (parents could not afford to buy me gear) that to this day I get excited just looking at a DAW or my hardware. Just thought I'd share my story. Awesome advise as usual! I absolutely love your content. Old school vinyl DJ who has a long way to go to become a real producer checking in!

I’m glad you put these helpful videos out there for the masses to watch and hopefully learn from! Always packed full of great advice and not even just for beat making honestly a ton of what you say can be applied to many things in life! Today’s biggest lesson was in my opinion for producers to do something unheard of “lose that ego” for a minute and actually learn something in the process 💪😎🆙💯🤜🤛

@Navie D Well I love music. I was always fascinated by how music was made and that's how I got to find out about producers. So ever since 2017 I have been watching producer videos on TRshow. I started off with Chucki Beats, then Kyle Beats, Simon Servida, Ocean, EdTalenti and then you. Who knows, I might just pick a DAW one day and start making beats.

In terms of "art speaking for itself": I think it's a bit of a mixed bag. You need both good art and good marketing skills. How strong you need to lean into the "marketing" side depends on your industry and circumstances - but the former is certainly a harder prerequisite than the latter imo - it's just that they're _both_ prerequisites, and marketing is hell of a lot easier when your product is actually good. I guess what I'm saying is, don't let the legwork of marketing make you cynical. At the end of the day, even if you need the marketing, it's still all about the art.
Navie D
Navie D 2 yıl önce
That's a great way of framing it, they are both prerequisites. In the past, I would often hope that the product would do the marketing on it's own as a way to avoid doing the marketing myself. I think that's a trap certain people fall into, avoid putting themselves out there and focus on the product as an excuse.

Thanks, this really came right in time cuz i was considering to give up and try something else. I downloaded fl studio in 2018 but i didn't have much time to learn cuz school was taking the most time from me, i kinda started using it in 2019 and i can say from there to now i improved a lot but lately i started struggling, i was never good at making melodies and my chords are pretty generic so i started using samples and again, at the beginning it was ok but then i started to suck at it, there is a channel called "Krptic Unknown" most of his musics are made from samples (anime, games...) so i wanted to use sample like him and then 2 weeks ago i found your video about "SliceX", it was a great help but i couldn't use sample the way he did so i started comparing myself with many youtubers, You, him, Kyle beats, Origami and others, so i started to give up and losing interest in making music Once again, Thank you, i kinda regain my motivation after watching this, not only for music production but in other stuffs i tried and gave up easily. Worth Subscribing... probably i won't start today lol i don't want to put myself on stress with it

Good points, but I think there’s merit in tools. You need to know that tools don’t make you better, but you can use them to make better beats if you know how to use them. Samples and presets, for example, can make it easier to arrive at a good beat due to reduction in time worrying about things like the mix.

if one is feeling uninspired/non-creative then taking a break and doing something physical such as taking a walk, or doing push ups can do wonders. the blood and oxygen flowing through the body allow the brain to work more efficiently and this can enable the creative process easier. if one still finds themselves unable to create another alternative would be to do some "research", such as study theory or music history. the "creative" part of the brain may be fatigued but other areas capable of research may not be. listening to others music or researching another artist life (or watching an interview or videos like this) can also provide insights into others creative process, which can then spark your creativity.

You know, you don't have to think your stuff is junk or trash, you can be proud of it and still try to get better at making music. As a Finn I know how we put ourselves down to protect our feelings from getting hurt, but it's ok to be proud of your music, even if it is bit crap. See it as a snapshot of that moment in your musical journey or something.

I agree with your statement that even if your stuff is good no one asks you. Sometimes trash beats will blow up. It's a game of branding and show off. Indeed music matters to an extent.

Also if I heard anybody saying any of these things I would just laugh at them and their excuses (referring to the you are not special part) I think people fail to realize how many people have DAWS and how many people grow up actually working with music in school. I’ve been trying now for 8 months with garage band and I think my saving grace is I really don’t have anybody to talk to about the situation, so I just push myself harder and convince myself giving up out of frustration isn’t an option. Since then i found myself being happier with the projects I’m working on all the time. Using every opportunity to learn and never assuming anything I do is close to good is the way for me lol

I'm a beginner and my issue is that I can make a decent loop but I never finish my projects because I usually reach a dead end and don't know how to add onto it without ruining it.

Ah, a very common problem. Just start off simple. See if you can build out a beat where you just add one additional sound for the hook for example.

I've lost a lot of time trying to make good sounds by using bad cheap/free plugins on a cheap gear. It is not always about the money, because LABS sound great, for example. And it's not always because of cheap gear - you can ask sound engineer do improve your mix, or try online mastering. It is about that cheapness of the source where you have to save and recover sound with plugins. When you have good libraries - you work with the sound, you don't save it from sounding terrible. There are no shortcuts and life is not fair at all. Untill you spend a lot of money for plugins - you will never have that good sound. Without good headphones, audio interface, without good monitors, without good room - it's like to paint in the darkness. So, it is good to learn something new, to practise, but how you are going to improve drawing if you are in the dark room? It doesn't mean that you don't have to learn, or try to do something with those plugins that you can afford - you abseoultly should! But when you will buy your first good sounding plugin - i think you will understand me. And yes - there will always be a gap between you and the dude who has good monitors. There will be always gap between you and dude who has 110000$ reverb vst. Your tracks will sound good in gaming headphones - his tracks will sound good in movie theatres. And I don't think that should stop anyone. But I think that it is always better to be aware of that. And hank you for great channel!!!

Great point at the beginning. Work hard try new tricks and use tips. The equipment wont make you the best but it is helpful for example good studio monitors and good mixing headphones. And a good computer 8gb is good i have 4 so i gotta work with what i can and optimize it so it wont crash worst feeling ever 😅

Good equipment can at times help you execute ideas a bit more painlessly, but learning how to create better ideas to begin with is what all of us should be focusing on (in my opinion)

I usually think I work better when I have a full day of time set aside. I realized through therapy that I get anxiety when I can't complete something. Knowing I have a time limit freaks me out and takes me outta creative mode. 😕 sadly don't have a solution still.

Ah I know that feeling. When there's something you have to do in a few hours and you can't feel a sense of rest and your brain is just firing. I just do what you mentioned, set an entire evening aside and schedule things in

I expected my music to be trash but i told myself if i keep going in 5 year my music is going to sound good and it happened. Im a professional now. I started in 2013 and it happened in 2018. But my music started to sound good in 2015.

When the weather is very good like now, i find it hard to work on music behind my desk. Something inside of me tells me to go outside, i am trying to find the perfect balance. Also a mistake i made is to listen to long to the same loop, getting tired of it and its like the sound is changing, that also makes me wonna do something else.

Ahh that's interesting. For some reason, I find I make the best music in the winter. I get the same feelings sometimes in the summer. Not sure what that's all about. Hmm yeah I remember having that same experience that you did with listening to the same beat over and over again. It can be maddening.

I have made at least one beat every day since I started last March. I have improved a whole lot but have always had the im not that good attitude. Someone once told me improve by 1% every day and In 100 day's you will have improved %100

Yeah it can be disheartening when you look at where you are now and it isn't as good as where you would like it to be. But as long as you are moving in a positive direction, it's only a matter of time until you get to where you want to be eventually.

Currently, I give myself a 6/10. 10 years ago, I gave myself a 6/10. 10 years from now, ill give myself a 6/10. Point is, I will never get to a certain spot, because I don't want to. I learn new stuff just about everyday, and it helps to improve my current level, but it also opens up 10 more levels to climb to. "The sky is the limit" type of thing, eh? Love these videos, Navie.
