Why you start producing?
« on: May 10, 2016, 10:16:08 pm »
I start this new topic to remind myself what am doing? we all need to remember why we are here. Always keep in mind our purpose , our goals , our dreams, when we feel discouraged or when someone thinks about quitting, remember that motivation , that dream , all the effort you've done so far, everything you've learned and accomplished , remember that is not in vain , it will never be easy . They not all achieve faster, but be persistent until the end. That is what a real

I am 15, I started producing like 8 months ago, and my first song is like an 80% finished, I dedicated to it a long time, sometimes I feel that it hasn't the enough quality or is a piece of @#&% . Sometimes I feel bad about not having a lot of tracks finished like other teenagers producers like JAEGER or Curbi. But I always remember why I start producing not be one of the bunch, make a dream come true die knowing that I succeeded, And say my last words: I made it

Sorry for bad grammar, not my language :^)

So I'd have something to do with all the stuff I wrote.

Really? 15 and already feeling bad about younger producers? :o
...well sorry to be unpleasant here, but that feeling is gonna get only worse with age. There's always gonna be some kid somewhere with more talent and luck than you have. Always. You have to learn to live with that. Forget about "making it". It might happen and I wish you it will, but chances are it won't. In that case, you better have some other reason to love this hobby. ...so you don't give it up and don't go crazy.

For me, it's when someone actually likes a track I made. It doesn't have to be masses of people. If there is one guy that likes the track. One person the track speaks to, I feel happy. :)

...but don't overdo it, because that's called being a d***k.

I started producing because I got tired of trying to find new songs that I liked and realized that I could make them myself since I've already identified my tastes.

Cause bandmates were too unreliable

That's why I initially started, that and I fell in love with Stigma by Noisia and just had to get into it. But I fell out of it for a while. I don't think why we started is the question. I think what needs to be asked is why we're still doing it, because at the end of the day where we are now means so much more than where we were then.

I got super into it again right around Porter's Worlds release. I had been doing it on and off from the get go, but Worlds inspired me. We have the ability to create something beautiful. To lift others up out of their murky depths, even if it's only for a moment. But that's such a powerful thing, because people will want to find it again, or create it again for themselves. I want to do that. I want to pour my heart out and inspire others to do the same. Music has kept me alive all my life, and through it all I realized that I could be a beacon of light in the hearts and minds of others, as others have been for me. It may sound pretentious, but it's an idea I've fallen in love with.

P.S. Sorry like 90% of my posts in this forum turn into emotional rants. :-X

Some emo kid couldn't start a band, so he picked up a computer instead. That's going pretty well.

I dunno exactly why, it "just happened". here is the long story:
It all started with EDM boom in 2011 when more electronic sound got into mainstream radios - I was 15, listening to crap like Flo Rida and Pitbull, I really liked Flo Ridas Good Feeling song, then when I found the original by Avicii called Levels, I was completely shocked by the electric sound and how it was so catchy even if it was instrumental thing (I'm not counting the Etta James sample) - I became obsessed by Avicii and I dug deeper - on his wiki page was mentioned Daft Punk as influence - never heard of them, I played first song on youtube - it was One More Time, and I realized that I heard this song already once when I was 6-7 yrs old and I loved it back then, now was blown away by those nice, unnatural tuned vocals.
Then I found out there is some genre called House and I became regular listener of progressive house - i stalked every possible episode of Eric Prydz Epic Radio and I listenned to it over and over again...
then there was this Pitbull feat Afrojack song - Give me everything, which accidentally changed it all for me - I really liked the piano chords in that song but I already hated Pitbull's shit all over it so I searched for Instrumentals - there wasn't any, only some youtube video with remake of the full song - in the video, everything was played from some weird looking complicated program - that was my first encounter with FL studio. I googled the program, what it is, what it does and how the heck are songs created then.
 After a brief introduction to FL studio I decided I want to make such awesome songs like Avicii, and I tried to remake them (without good results lol), then I learned more and I realized I could try something on my own - first song was a disaster, I'm  still trying to figure out why on Earth I lowpassed C5/C6 strings at like 300 hz, why "climax" was 12 bars long or why I putted reverb on practically everything  ??? (I still have the song somewhere I can post it if you want instant earbleed :D ) but I still kept on learning and now I know I'm capable of creating pretty decent song.

So yes, I'm a child of Avicii and Afrojack, that is producing trap, moombahton and future bass now. Believe in yourself and do your homeworks.

Music has been the corner stone of my life for as long as I can remember, and DJing was something I discovered back in 2001, and being able to share my love of music became a reality.

Then I started to look into producing, because as a musician, it was a natural progression.

I grew up with music. My sister listened to great music when we were growing up, almost my entire mother's side of the family can sing, and we went to a church that had amazing singers and one of the best gospel bands I've ever heard. I knew I liked the arts as a kid so I went through distinct phases of music, creative writing, and drawing. Music was the only thing that stuck and I felt like I was good at it.

Because I like music, and I want to make it. I can't live without music
