Vision and Purpose

Maybe it's just me, but I can't create sounds/noise without a purpose! Otherwise, it's just pointless crap! I don't like sitting down without a goal or vision in mind! If it's for learning your gear, or learning synthesis in general, sure! If it's experimenting which, really goes back to learning, sure! Or, if it's specifically for creating a sound to fit into a song, that is also good, but if it's just for shits and giggles, not really interested. Although, tweaking to just see what happens is alright too (once again, goes back to experimenting/learning)! If I were to offer any advice to someone who is creating their own music and creating their own sounds it would be this:

1. Create with purpose and vision! Know what kind of sounds you want to create and where they'll fit into your productions/songs! If you hear something in your head for a particular part of a song, create that sound as close to what you hear in your head! (Think of all the different parts of the sound and how you can go about creating that sound with your synthesizer!)

2. If you are just experimenting or learning, I would suggest have the manual for your synth beside you, so if you need to know what a certain function does on your synth you can quickly look it up in the manual (alternatively, you can just tweak parameters to see what they do as well, but I find it takes up more time and it's quicker to just look at the manual)!

3. Have fun! If you are not having fun then what the fuck are you doing!!
