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.
