    Default How long does it take you to produce a track

    for all your producers out there, how long do you spend producing your original tracks and remixes?? how many tracks/channels??

    I am spending upwards of 2 weeks on my Remixes and a month on my original material.

    I have problems with considering a track as finished - but that may be because I don't usually release tracks commercially. As I progress and gain more knowledge about the tools, I go back to my old stuff and improve it. So, in a way, I have tracks that took 4+ years to make xD.

    When I produced full time I could bang out a remix mastered fully in about 3 weeks when I mean full time I mean as in a few days a week for 4-6 hours.... Originals were slightly longer... These days it's usually a month or more for original in mastered and same for a remix but that's only a few hours a week..... Some of my best ones have taken the shortest amount of time because everything just felt right and came together the way my brain wanted it

    Ha like a month. I get the general idea down within like 2 days, but then the rest of the time is spent on mixing the track, and adding more and more little shit. I usually end up with like 60 tracks.

    Lately, I've been able to finish remixes in a week. I do have a job and only end up working on them maybe an hour a day. Balancing work, exercise, gigs and producing is tough at times so I try to get them done so I can focus on the next thing. Original tracks take me about 3 weeks. Sometimes things just come together quickly. The more you play, the better you get and sooner you finish your tracks, IMO.

    lately i have been spending a 3 weeks to a month writing the base song on my guitar, fiddling with the idea, and a week properly producing it.

    writing it on guitar saves me alot of time infront of the DAW.

    same... a new track or remix every month. it all goes into a pile, most of it i toss out because it is not good, some of it is actual music that is good, means something etc... and some of it i go back to and redo.

    it forces me to be productive lol

    The song I put out today took me 4 days to make, 2 days for mastering to come back, and 3 weeks for artwork.
