Music Producer Life Hacks II

  1. Don’t multi-task. Once you start a beat, see it through to the end. This is the opposite of the advice I gave last time, and I think its better to just finish one project at a time. The only exception in my opinion is if you are making simple loops, then you might want to switch back and forth between several projects at once
  2. Learn the basics of Recording and running a session with an Artist or Band. Learn how to clean up, organize, and mix a session in Pro Tools. If you also know how to run a session and Engineer something with Pro Tools, you can get some work in a studio or run your own Studio business
  3. Take advantage of loops and drum kits. There are many indepenedent Producers selling their own melody packs, drum kits and the major companies like Splice and Native Instruments offer tons of sounds in high quality format.
  4. Get an external hard drive , and backup your projects to it

  5. If you don’t have an external hard drive, keep your projects stored safely on Dropbox or Google Drive
  6. Have your beats ready to showcase to artists on both a website and on your computer at all times! If you don’t have a Beat Store in 2020 you are missing out on opportunities. I recommend having a Playlist in YouTube / Spotify / Apple Music of just your beats.
