    Na man, that's just part of your head fuckin' with you. I bet pretty much all us have thought/think that same thing at times, and i've also heard top top producers say it on numerous occasions. In fact, most creative people say it at one point or another about their work. It's totally normal bro. Don't take plays and feedback as any measure of how good your stuff is. Both are a VERY hard to generate for the VAST majority of beat makers, and artists in general struggle to be heard/seen, as there is just SO much content out there. Hit me up on PM if you want to hear about my ideas about development as a beat maker/artist and underpinning mindsets for how to best go forward. We have a great supportive community here and I know i'm happy to help any brother out who's having a moment of negativity. 👍

    STBB #604 - Lush Edition There were some great tracks last week, I honestly didn't expect to win. Thank you for your votes! This week I wanna hear some super lush beats. Put me to sleep or make me wig out, the choice is yours. But keep it organic~ SAMPLES This week I've got 2 folders of samples: https://we.tl/t-iOKsQNVGmC FOLEY - I use mostly my own recorded sounds in my music, so I gathered up 21 textures and sounds that I've made for you to use/process. SAMPLES - Three extra samples that I found while digging. RULES: 1) Use at least 7 of the 21 sounds from the "Foley" Folder (layer them up, make em interesting) 2) Use at least 1 of the 3 samples in the "Samples" Folder 3) No outside samples or drums EXCEPT FOR A KICK DRUM (mangle the foley sounds for your percussion! there should be enough there.) 4) Outside synths and instrumentation is fine, as long as you play them yourself. 5) Get creative, make your beat as lush, organic and vibey as possible 6) No time limit, go ham. uhh If this is too hard lemme know, I dont really have much experience with beat battles lol. Good luck! The Fine Print:Upload your beat to Soundcloud, include "STBB 604“ in the title, and POST TO THIS FORUM by Wednesday at Midnight, Pacific time. Try to leave as much feedback as you can and you will receive it back. For easy browsing's sake, you can also go to the STBB page: https://soundcloud.com/stbbcollectionEVERYONE VOTES - by Friday at Midnight, Pacific time Winner: post new sample, rules, etc by Saturday at Noon, Pacific time and upload the sample to WeTransfer

    you’re not wasting anybody’s time. i know i’m probably not alone when i say i’m here to get better and i will and you will too. You can’t let that negative mindset take over your head because that’s when your creativity goes out the window. This beat battle thread is the big leagues in my opinion. So many talented cats in here including yourself. You gotta take your lumps, pick yourself up and brush it off with pride. Get ready for the next round my man. Just remember it’s all for the love.

    Hey man don't give up. Personally, I think everyone I've heard on here who participates in these battles has what it takes to win. There's many different factors to take into account when it comes to voting, like people's taste, style or mood. It's a tough competition! I fell flat on my face this week too but even that can still be quite fun, right? 🤸‍♀️ Keep it up!

    Hey Monexus, It's one entry per beat maker per battle as stated in the default rule set. You just choose which of your beats that you want to stand by this week. You still get a re-post for each beat, but only one is eligible for voting. If you are interested in winning then you need to edit the title of one to non entry. If not any votes for any of your beats this week, won't count and you won't be eligible to win. If that doesn't matter to you leave it as it is. Don't take it personal, HD just trying to help you out bruh.

    Hey brother.First of all you are wasting nobody's time.This is a community for beatmaking/producing. I know that is hard not to think that plays and likes reflects the quality of your tracks but is really not, it doesn't matter.I feel disappointed in myself all the time and I believe that most of the producers feel the same, even the most talented out there.Non commercial music is not a competition.You make music because you need to do it.There were many times that I decided to quit making music but I always end up producing again.Overcoming this feeling of disappointment is key element for someone to become better at what he/she does.If I can be of any help to you or anyone in this forum just hit me up on SC.

    Yo Mox dont be too hard on yourself dude we're all in here developing and pushing ourselves keep going and you will get better just being involved helps generate feedback...if you werent doing the battles your numbers would be even lower besides f*ck numbers they are not the most important part of being creative. Sometimes when I look at the way some members vote I often think 'how has X got the top spot!?' but that shouldnt effect your opinion of them of yourself, everyone likes different styles and you wont be some peoples 1st choice but to one person you may be the best thing they ever heard do it for that one person and do it for yourself dude dont give up...youll regret it
