A short survey into the struggles of music making. (i.e. 10 mins of therapy)

I'm running a survey exploring the struggles of music making, both beginners and experienced folks welcome.

Thanks kindly!

Not knowing what clients actually want is a source of stress. Imagining someone else running a session 5x faster than me and then people who are used to that coming to my studio is also a source of stress. Then you have to get your head out of that and actually focus on all the basic stuff like gain staging and mic placement and mic choice. And then you have to be a producer at the same time and think ahead about how to comp the takes and arrange the mix so it doesn’t get stale over a 4 minute period of time.

That about sums it up for me. I don’t want to drop the ball on any one aspect of running a session. It all seems so simple until you’re actually doing it with 3 people watching you.
