    What do you think to the claim that the cure for getting stuck writing music is by doing a whole tune using 1 instrument for all instruments quickly before starting mixing, arranging. etc?
    YouTubers seem to be claiming that is the way to learn to finish tunes.

    Hey Dan..

    I think this is horrible advice.

    This causes the beatmaker MORE WORK.. why only use 1 instrument to make a beat, then you have to GO BACK.. to change the sounds?

    When you make the beat, focus on wise sound selection.  This means trying to get sounds to stand out by them self, even before mixing starts.. then in the mixing stage you’re simply “enhancing” your beat, rather than doing heavy processing.

    Remember, you can play up higher or lower in the octaves to take advantage of your whole FREQUECY SPECTRUM when beatmaking.

    Be careful out there with these “beatmaking tips” nowadays..

    Hey thanks for that advice seems the best by far.
    Don’t think I could make a beat all the way through starting on one instrument only as this would just work against creativity.

    Yes, exactly Dan.

    When you make the beat, the wisest thing you can do is use different instruments spread across the frequency spectrum to make mixing/mastering much easier.

    It allows sounds to stand out naturally (mixing enhances this), and beatmaking is much easier using different sounds.
