- Is it ever possible to get past this, or should I resign myself to the fact I am tone deaf?
Sound design-wise, bringing a house mentality to "proper" techno might not work because it is often not going to go far/weird/deep/? enough. With techno are you having trouble with just your deep clanks and short phrases or are you talking other elements as well? Having a signature sound in a techno track might mean a lot of sound design steps and stages to get a really unique sound, which you then may have to sample just a short part of. You cant let the strict tasteful aesthetic of techno stop you. Tastefulness and restraint come after.

Bro, fret not. Someday you'll be like me. I'm 2 years in, 70 or so acid techno tracks, 4 on the floor, every tune, different tempo, with variations of the same acid line, ripping through a RAT pedal.

Things are on the up and up, with an insane 250 YT subscribers. I'm thinking of hiring a video production manager and a personal assistant to help me out with everything. This can be you too my friend. Keep on keeping on.

Depends on what you do. I have fun. I don't spend too much time on tweaking and mastering. I don't get paid enough. My interest is in crunching out the same tune over and over.

Because it's a magazine for bearded men who like to Rock N' RollA ?
