What's your least favourite part of production?

The opposite of this.
What do you dislike about music production?
For me it would be sound design. Ugh.

Time restraints that involve creating and overall how life actually works when producing
Josh Huval: Honestly, the guys who are making good art are spending their time making it.

mixing the levels, automation, etc

but thats part of being in this job

Mixing, finding time, that part where you can't think of anything
never enough hours in the day

worst part for me is actually writing melodies.

 since I'm not 'classically' trained in any way shape or form that is probably my biggest hurdle. Works against me since I like making progressive music where there is high importance on melodic elements.

THIS. Also, the moment when I realize that my music is shit, even if I thought it was great before.

Stress that comes with thinking that being as good as my idols is some unattainable feat. Oh, and making snares is frustrating as fuck

Worst part, trying to have the brain power to produce after a full day at work. Some days its there and other times it not. But on the weekends when there is no work, I crush it in the morning time and am very productive.

Bouncing out the mix, finding something wrong that absolutely no listener will notice, going back and fixing it. Then repeating this process at least 20 times until you're SOMEWHAT happy with the final render.

Writing transitions and lyrics. The monotony of recording live guitars and instruments. Dealing with singers.

+1. Trying to finish (and mix) a track when I've listened to it a million times and I don't even really like it anymore (at least not as much as I initially did), BUT I know it's good for me to finish it, put it out there, and get feedback regardless.  ::)
