@xox thanks man, that's pretty awesome of you to say.
One of my goals for the next year or so is to a proper release. I'm nearly done with college/university, so i should have more time. I know i need to put more work in, in terms of actual composition; i'm not really satisfied with my output yet. Also mixing and post-production are weak areas. Sometimes i wonder if what i'm doing is too closely coupled to my influences also. I do know that i have a drive to create something, and i never get tired of tweaking sounds and timbres.
I honestly feel like, for a long time now, I've been battling forces keeping me from doing what i want to do the most, which is make music/sound. Or put another way, i've always only had one foot in, one foot in other things like work, school, and programming, but that's true for most of us.
imo your mixing is good enough. do you use programming in music production?
also, i thought that i'll have more time after college but now i see that that i never had more time for music than while i was studying
@programming, mostly no, but I have done some things related to audio and midi programming. For example, i programmed a microcontroller (Arduino UNO/ATmega328p) to be a simple random() based MIDI sequencer, but it wasn't interesting/sophisticated enough for me to actually use in most cases. I have a cortex M4 I wanted to try and do some dsp synthesis stuff on, but i haven't gotten around to it.
I get what you mean about college, but for me I've also had to work near full time on top of it, so i expect my raw amount of free time to increase.... but yeah, i think the insight is we always think we're going to have more time later but it rarely turns out to be the case.
