Pivotal Moment (WB10)

By spry on March 12, 2016 9:48 pm

You know sometimes progress requires sacrifice.  I've decided to take a slightly different approach to the tracks for this weeklybeats season.  My goal of producing a song completely in an hour is still going to remain the same but I'm going to err on the side of quality when I can instead of keeping a strict approach to the time limit.  I'm going to be striving to hit that one hour mark but if the composition requires a set of operations to be fully expressed then I would rather the song sound good than cut the time short. 

So this week I did go over my time limit obviously!  I spent way too long recording my guitar samples at 30 minutes.  If not for that I might have come close to hitting the hour deadline.  20 minutes on drums and accompaniment as well as cropping and resampling my loops.  10 minutes recording structure.  This is where I had my mini crisis because I could have just exported but instead I chose to spend another 30 minutes bouncing down the sidechain, mixing my parts, give it some proper fades and doing a master. 

In the future I hope to slim the process down further with the experience I have gained from this and eventually produce the same quality in less time.  We'll see how close I can get.
