>tfw every artist and their brother is putting new stuff out
>tfw haven't even released an ep yet
>tfw probably will be a year before I even have the right things together to do so

Can we get some music making feels going? Let's talk /mu/

You only need a mic and some software to make music. Better equipment doesn't mean good music.

>tfw no friends who are into music
>tfw sentenced to a mediocre life

Yeah, but a lot of my equipment is busted. I just need a few more things and a new guitar, and maybe a keyboard. Eventually a new computer too,

I don't want to really work on a project if I can't get it to sound right.

Get a desktop, then just modify it to handle what program you're using. Get an external hard drive too.

Fuck gifted people, fuck them all

That's not true at all. Where'd you get that from?

>tfw every musician in the area either ants to play AC/DC covers or picked up the guitar 2 monthes ago
>tfw too poor to get hardware for electronic music
>tfw been trying to get into softwares but cannot even manage to get anything decent after a year of practice
I'm starting to consider embracing my statut of talentless hack and make noise. Just noise. Hijack shows with a singing saw or get booked via some fake songs I didn't mae myself.
Fuck it, i don't even want to make good music.
I just want people to hear my shit.
I want to say that I exist, goddamnit.

>finish recording
>want to upload online

>>50318452
You think you could ever even approach any of the truly great artists?
No, you need to have that something, besides hard work
We're just normal people, we're fucking worthless.

Making music is a long process. Getting the right equipment, finding the right recording processes, the right way of working without taking a toll on your creativity, eventually mixing and all that kinda stuff if you wanna do that by yourself takes some time to learn too.

It all takes time, cause even if you have the talent you need knowledge and experience, and it's gonna be very hard to make a song that sounds exactly the way you imagined it in your head.

Being an artist is psychologically demanding and it takes time, you might end up never being truly happy with anything you make. You just gotta do your best and find what works for you.

>tfw released an album on bandcamp
>one year ago
>tried to communicate about it
>put it online with some collective that promote their stuff
>one year later
>it's the most downloaded album of the whole collective
>with 18 downloads
And this is why labels,even small indie labels, still matter for artists.
