timaeus222 Posted October 11, 2013 Report Share Posted October 11, 2013 (edited) This is somewhat related to "what is the first 'good' song you wrote?", but not exactly like it. The first time I liked my own music because of production quality rather than because I wrote it was when I collaborated with Chimpazilla on a Yoshi ReMix. That, however, wasn't the turning point for a shift towards thinking that I had finally gotten "good" at production (that was the biggest arrangement progress for me, actually). The turning point for my largest improvement in production quality was when I had acquired around half a year's worth of independent sound design experience. I was, crudely put, dinking around on Zebra2 for half a year before I really understood what I was doing on it. When I understood (after tons of experimenting and NOT reading the manual for some reason ) what each knob really did and what I should expect when I turn specific knobs and touch stuff on the synth, that's when I could tell my music was finally "good", or not "bad". I could finally start evaluating production based on sound design, and not just mixing, EQ, etc. Essentially, sound design was the major step into improving my own objective sound quality. What was the reason/cause for the turning point of your own music composition, production, or playing skills from "meh" to "hey, this is actually pretty good"? OR If you don't consider yourself "good" in your own opinion, what have you tried to improve your abilities?
