Why did you decide to start producing?
Which program(s) do you use when producing?
What hardware do you produce with?
The hardware I use when producing my music are a MacBook Pro and Krk KNS 8400 Studio Headphones. I also have a M-Audio Axiom Pro 61 which I haven’t used for a year.
How long does it typically take for you to make a beat?
It depends. A lot of times I’ve been really busy, so I’ll “half-bake” a beat in 10-15 minutes and either leave it alone, or come back to it and add some more instrumentation to it later. However, a lot of the beats people hear from me are made by what I call a “Euphoria.” They usually happen at night after I have had no creative ideas for a long period of time. Generally, A melody would start playing in my head, and after I record that melody on my program, multiple ideas branch off of it, until I hear a “song.” I try my best to make the instrumental sound like the “song” I envision. This usually takes 1-7 straight (yes, straight), hours depending on the complexity of the “song” I mentally hear. During those hours, I can’t take a break or I lose sight or vision of the “song.” When I feel like I’ve done enough, I take a day break, or so, and then take an additional 30 minutes to an hour to finish mixing and mastering it.
