It's by no means perfect but the amount of posts made by members it must show it has its place here, yes?


If you're after pro detailed feedback, go and pay a subscription to any of the many providers that's available on the web, but I bet even then you'll not receive your monies worth.


I'm totally guilty of it lol. I liked it better when our WIPs were individual threads. We singlehandedly killed the music producers promo forum.

don't ever pay for feedback

anyone who is a pro will not charge you unless they can't pay their bills and need to do stupid shit like that ie illgates. Granted you can't just ask a stranger but most pros given your level will give you more time than you think. But generally you have to be rather good and need a little nudge in the right direction .

To be honest, I never understood the purpose of posting WIPs. You should always be your own harshest critic, and only consider a track done when you feel it's done. Then you can just post the completed track and get feedback, and decide whether you want to go back and tweak it or go forward and start a new track.

It's like Joey Jupiter once told me when I was buying his TR-606 - you make a bunch of tracks, and you hopefully find some of them decent enough for a release.

If you spend too much time on a single track, it's hard to move forward. I've always felt that the more I move forward and make new tracks, the more intuitive it became to work with my machines and get inspired. You'll always end up making some tracks that are better than others, and some of your finest work may take you the least amount of time to complete.

Woohoo. This is why we can't have nice things.

Anyway...The purpose of posting a work in progress is "supposed" to be to get some different feedback from other music producers. Maybe interjecting an idea you hadn't thought of, or sparking other creative content.

The thing about the human brain is adaptation...You listen to something of yours for so long, and only have a single perspective on it, there might be things you overlooked, can't hear, or otherwise wouldn't have thought of.

I've had numerous tracks that had input from friends, that positively added to the tune during the creation process. (even from people here *gasp*...)

The real problem is that it's hard to get that around here. Most seem only to care about their own endeavors, and like what was said already, only post a "yeah liked that" just to post up their own unfinished tune. I guess it's hard to really give a shit about someone else...

In theory this forum/thread should be a place for progressing...but in practice...not so much...Add to that the relatively small group of people who frequent here...

There's no reason this couldn't change, however.

Also disagreeing about spending time on a single track. If you know your unfinished track is good, or it caters to you in some way...there's nothing wrong with coming back to it every once in awhile and seeing it out to completion...

Different strokes for different folks I guess.

Nothing wrong about spending time on a track, and if it's unfinished and good, then you should see to its completion, and perhaps not move forward until you do so. If I started a track, I'd generally finish it - even if it took a while - before I'd start on a new one. That may also be because I used hardware, and would have to re-program everything if I wanted to come back to it. But I like hardware for that reason as well, among others. But as you said, different strokes...

I also agree it's nice to have a few friends or acquaintances who can provide some feedback. I've definitely requested a friend's feedback on final mixdowns, as I would often rack my brains about the final recording.

Will do it for 58.5 cents per sentence.

For a limited time...Only the feedback you want. Need a 2 paragraph ego-stroke on how tight that 7-layer kick of yours is? Or maybe just a short 2 word response on how "you suck". 1/2 of proceeds go to the "Hungry producers" charity fund.

I liked the separate threads because it made feedback voluntary. When it's obligated, it just causes people to try to get it over with. When we had separate threads it was a situation where people knew that if they wanted good feedback they had to be an active citizen of the forum. Otherwise, people would just ignore their post. People are way more likely to comment on posts by names they recognize.

So i'd been trying to brush up on my music theory & was trying to write some chord progressions. What started off from three chords turned into a whole track. I'm currently on vacation & don't have access to my studio, so the mixdown probably needs work. Would love to get some feedback:

It has a nice feel to it, the bass sound is great- cutting through rather nicely. It's interesting that although this isn't mastered (i.e. limited to the max) it sounds rather sweet.

I will say it is lacking a bit of complexity (especially in the percussion), so becomes rather predictable. But the elements are good and musically it certainly has potential.

It's at it's best at 3:20 - might be good to listen to anjunadeep to see how they keep interest over a simple long progressive track on their releases.

decent stuff and worth a listen. It sounds like a holiday!

same here, and this topic is rather unwieldy - and doesn't get searched..
