How Am I Ever Going To Find The Inspiration?
I’ve come to the realisation that it’s going to take an extreme amount of effort to get my head into DJ/producer mode. I spend a large amount of time listening to tracks, finding new artists, new songs…it takes up so much time. Add to that work, and the other aspects of real life and the other things I work on, it means that my focus on music creation is very low. I have the motivation from the music that I have discovered and listen to, but I can’t seem to turn this into creation.
I think the main reason that I haven’t put much effort in is because I know to get to the point where I’m producing tracks will require a significant amount of time and patience to begin to learn the ropes, some thing I don’t have just yet. I know I will have to find the time somehow, but I don’t know how. Any ideas on how I can find/make free time?

you don’t have to be a one man band, I work on different projects with different people, some have more time than me but need creative help, some don’t, I’ve learnt to focus on what you do well then get others to fill the gaps.
the last few projects would not have seen the light of day if I tried to do it all myself like I did back in the day.
The problem I have is that I currently don’t have the skills. I need to practise and I need some help in understanding the ins and outs of products such as NI’s Maschine and Ableton Live. I need to sit down and nut them out so I can get started. I have ideas, but I haven’t put the effort in.
