How many beats are you making per day / week???

Swear some of you are posting like 20 full tracks each in the showcase then have beats also for the comps.

Movin like you're making a full track every hour?

I'm barely making one a week.

I tend to make the main ideaof something then move on to something else.

Yesterday I did five. i was inspired by something I came across on youtube and gave me that spark. That's also only from being home due ti the virus. Once i go back to work it will be maybe two to three on Sat when I have time.

that used to be me, but I got fed up of having every beat unfinished and when an artist wanted to hear something, it was usually never finished or even bounced to a wav or mp3. Try to finish stuff, at least when you are put on the spot and asked for some beats, you have plenty ready at hand and finished. You can always come back and change things, just keep all the source files.

Lmao I try to average 1 beat / day.

Sometimes though, I wont make a beat for a week, especially if I feel like my music is getting stale. I'll pull-back and listen to music / watch tutorials.

I think making more than 3 beats / day is kinda pointless, but that's just my opinion. Every beat I'm trying to implement something new, and if I can't, I'm not really improving..

probably one a week but i think its normal to have periods where you dont feel inspired im definitly like that when i write or improv on guitar, i was really annoyed yesterday cuz i had a cool drum track but couldn't find anything to play over it, best thing i think is to take a break and recharge your creative juices pushing yourself to make something isn't good if its just not coming out the way you want :)

Yeah @slimegreenbeats @Crispifier kinda hybrid of these two points plus one more...

I think sometimes you just have to make, just plat whatever. Churn out uncensored uninhibited ideas. That way you get something good and natural becauseit comes from feeling as opposed to thought.

It's definitely good to learn something - i tryingto do that now. But it's important to not be too "thinky" in every beat you make.

And yeah Crispi i solved that problem by playing from feel... just play - if it don't quite feel rightor good, ditch it. Tap into your feel and when something catchesyou, keep it.

If it's a good idea but not rightfor your current project, saveit somewhere.

That's how I'm moving now.

You cant force creativity, when you are ready the creative juices will flow, when you are not, they wont, you cant force it.
Like @slimegreenbeats said take a break, watch tutorials, listen to music to get inspired, try something completely different like a completely different genre. Keeping things interesting the half the battle so that we dont stagnate, always try new things, new techniques you picked up in the tutorials and as @Iron Keys said, keep churning them out while you are creative because thats where the experience comes from
