Lol from what I can tell cyclops is one of the ones who’ve “got it” as far as that term has any meaning
Some people make so many tunes so quickly and consistently and it’s the most admirable shit.
A mate I know is like that. I’ve seen him in ableton. Just has a basic ability to super quickly dedicate his beatmaking to a solid idea that works. Little fucking around back and forth and getting over conscious about the drum pattern. 1, 2 3, and something decent and often something really dope comes out.
There’s certain mindsets you can try to have to be better, I guess. Best I can explain it is vague woke Buddhist shit basically: don’t approach the daw with an ego, don’t sit and evaluate your shit from this or that angle, would this DJ like it maybe etc. as much first-person childlike enjoyment as possible, combined with trained concentration. That’s what I’d guess. This is all based on my personal bs I guess but suppose many are similar.
