Reply I'm not suggesting this but coffee and cigarettes and some green tea would help a lot Reply Tip No 6:- Watch Zen's Edm Comedy Videos XD Reply I look up tutorials. That's how I've cured my writer's block lately. Reply Here's a thing, tell ur honey she can help you out… At the end of your production session get her to judge your work, if she likes it "2 chicken legs wide open" … If she doesn't "2 chicken legs wrapped" 🍌👙💋❤️ Reply If I get stuck working on a track or want to start a track, i wont go back into the studio until I have 5 ideas written down on paper. That usually gets A LOT done for me Reply good tips bro! Reply thanks for the tips! Reply I just play around until I hear something I like and then it just branches off from there. Reply a tip that helps me alot is, i open ableton, and make different melodies/drops, recorded them in MIDI form and save them on a folder. then in the future when i need a melody for a drop or a melody for a break, i check the ones i created before and use them. it really works! so one day instead of sitting on your studio trying to make a badass drop, just sit down relax and create melodies that you like and save them, it will make the job easier, plus you won't have the pressure of making the final drop and you won't feel frustrated. just play some chords, and if something sounds good, record it, 😉 cheers Reply Ive grown around music, melodies keep coming on my mind almost all the time, but when it comes for me to make the drop I always give up, it always get a crap or very melodic, more melodic then prog house hahaha Reply Would like to add something and hooefully help someone. Save all midi files from ideas you dont want or decide you dont want to finish. They come in handy later. Also when your feeling creative and inspired write alot of chords/melodys and save them as midi. Both of these are good so when you arnt feeling inspired or creative you have your own ideas to get you going. Plua they help fill a blank project file with content quickly Reply if I cant get any ideas most of the time I take a accoustic instrument like a piano orstrings or something put tons of reverb on it and play random notes sounds strange but most of the time it works for me to get a melody Reply Hi Zen,Could you do a video about, finding ones sound?What can we do to sound different.and just be our own.Please.. Reply +Zen World Very useful, as always. Thank you! Reply One thing I would also add, kind of similar to number 3, try to work on the "infrastructure" of your music. Work on collecting good samples, work on making your own sounds, work on making custom plugin settings, etc. It isn't really helping with your creativity directly, but it can help to ensure you don't lose your creative drive fiddling with boring technical things when you should be focusing on the arrangement. Reply heyy zen world…what do you do if u have made a track and u do not know whether if it is any good ? and none of your close friends listen to edm ? could u help please Reply thats exactly that I imagine during the build up how the drop will be! and this is how I get those remix ideas and thats why I like it so much to make remixes. Reply hii zen u make amazing videos….can u plz upload a video or do some videos on how u make melodies and breaks? Reply hey man great vid. Got a request for you. Could you do a vid on getting a sound to have that sidechain/low attack kind of sound people such as Flume and Vanic use often specifically if u could teach in sylenth1. I know i could change the attack or make a sidechain but it seems they are able to control it not sure how. Anyway thanks. Reply Could u make a Build Up Tutorial Video (EDM) ? I didnt found a Good Tutorial and I think youre the right one ! Reply i took a whole year break lol Reply I am 12 year old… NOT 😀 Reply Please make a Dillon Francis tutorial! Like any of his sounds that doesn't have a tutorial yet! Love your tutorials! Reply I sometimes at 2 tho.. Reply I'm confident that I'll have less writer's block than before cause I just recently identified most of my production mistakes Reply perfect timing. I have been having this issue for atleast a month now. Reply i think Tobu should take notes on tip 3. Reply Cool video!Thanks for playing my tracks 🙂 Reply For a couple weeks I've had terrible writers block and I nailed it on the head in figuring out why. Studying a music production degree. I obviously enjoy making my own music but on this degree I'm producing dance music for a board of lecturers that seem to frown upon it. Which took A LOT of the fun out of producing. Anyway I finished my last assignment yesterday, now I'm free. Wrote a new track in pretty much a day. It's mad Reply i m very bad in drop melody cn u jst make video for it ?bcz i like ur tips n hope u ll get more soon 🙂 Reply Can you make a sounddesign tutorial in sylenth on the lead from ocarina from wolfpack and dm&lm?? Reply Tip number 6: Load up, FM8, Serum, Massive, or what ever and make some sounds. That sound can be a lead to your next track. Reply Tip 6: Take a Shower Reply you are great, man!
