The contest was only posted yesterday, how can yous produce a track you're happy with in one day? I don't get it.
I participated in an ableton contest where you had to make a track in only 24hs, that super tight schedule kind of obligates you to be super concentrated in everything you do. Since then I try to make or at least have the most part and arrangement of the song in the first day. Sometimes it suddenly fits, if in the first few hours I work with a track I dont feel it, I tend to abandon that idea. This time it worked I guess haha.
You have to keep in mind, that you get more or less finished sounds. When I make a song from scratch, the part which consumes most of my time is the sound design, not the composing.
And one more thing: semester break...
