Just curious.

Months? One year? Five? I am far from getting a release, I wouldn't release my stuff. But I'm not in a hurry. :o

10yrs. But then again it wasn't easy in '95 without vsts and working purely sample based. Even when they passed the 1Ghz barrier I was still on my 75Mhz pc.

Two years for me. Never had a release 3 years after, I just started to get things rolling again recently. When I was a young 18 year old, music was pretty much what I was doing, I'd go long sessions every other day. It's a lot of hard work to get there, just keep at it :D !

How do you define "release"? A digital label? A self-release? A song which ended up on all the top international compilation CDs?

There is a very tenuous connection between something being released and something sounding in any way good.

It'd be good for you to define your question a bit better - if within a couple of months I'd made an absolutely rubbish sounding song and had it released on a tiny internet label and had zero sales, would that count?

He's probably talking about a release on a label.

OP: Been producing since march 08, haven't released anything yet. I'm not in a rush. Seems that nowadays people are in such a rush to release their ty music.

i have 4 tracks with a pre-contract some changes needed for the release and mastering but nothing signed yet i started 1 year ago... one of the tracks is possibly a hit (at a certain level, i expect just some play but well known djs but no pros) , i'm not concerned yet of this issue of having a lot of tracks unsigned, some of them have quality others not...

One day instead of producing i'll spend my music day sending demos to labels but of course this is not as entertaining :p

as for me i have been messing around with beats ever since i was 12 or 13, but started to take it serious when i turned 18, i guess becoming disciplined just came with age for me, i have been told a few of my tracks can be released, but im just like whats the point?
i dont want to release anything until their good enough to be on my favourite labels.

I was talking about a release via some proper label, digital or physical doesn't matter, the question is how long did it take you to release a mention worthy track.


I just want to get a better idea on how others are doing. :)
