    Default Up all night.

    How many of you stay up all night practice mixing?

    How many hours have you practiced in one session?

    Have you ever missed day at work , or school cause of our addiction?

    Made a mash up once stayed up doing it then editing a video together for well over 12 hours (having been awake during the day) so i was awake for almost 30 hours. Killed me the day after , but its still the most downloaded thing I've ever made on sound cloud and even tho its not reli what I'm into now i still think its not bad

    I have yet to miss work because of being in the groove, but I've definitely skipped classes before, or decided not to go out until much later when I've been hitting a solid mix.

    It's just a matter of balance, as with anything in life.

    Ya, once I get going late at night, I may as well not sleep. I start mixing to pass the time, but the adrenaline just keeps me awake anyway. I'd say my longest mix session would be about 8 hrs, with short breaks for snacks and whatever comes up in between. Definitely missed a bit of class the days after, but all the notes are online anyway.

    I think the latest I have been up was around 6 in the morning when I was really in the groove. Thankfully it was a long weekend so I didn't have to work on no sleep.
