Producers - What do you do for inspiration


Or five beers depend what’s going on the next day


Smething I’ve done a bit recently is sampling dialog from tv and movies, and using that as a song-starter, and it’s helped a lot, and also changed my workflow - I always used to start with drums and bass; but the last tune started with a speech sample that I chopped and pitched, and took snatches of the background ambience/music and turned them into my own pads and atmos. It was good to do something different. It’s also inspired me to rewatch favourite movies and telly shows for sample opportunities.

Oh, and I think this is my first post after lurking for a bit. Hi :wave:


I rarely watch anything now without a pen nearby to note down times of cool bits of audio or sounds in whatever im watching for sampling purposes.
