Does anyone have else have an “Unfinished Music Bin”? More often than not, I can’t seem to be inspired to finish a particular track. I have a folder of leftover tracks for a rainy day. Some tracks die in it, and some are revived again to make it into a finished product months later. That bin is getting HUGE !

It is wonderful when we can get re-inspired to finish them, at least I feel like I saved a life. However, re-listening to those tracks, I hear why they ended there. I say to myself, “What the hell was I thinking”. Cheers!

The same here. More than half of my stuff ends up in “the unfinished music bin”. On an inspirationless day I reopen them and start to work on them again. But in the end, the only thing the end product and and the original one have in common is the tempo and the key.

Funny that you brought this up! Last night I was just going through my “demos” folder (which is then separated into multiple folders, listening to some of my old work going back to 2003 haha.

I have about 400 – 500 unfinished tracks or pieces of tracks. I always have a really hard time completing something from the demos folder for some reason though…

And there was me thinking I was the only one suffering from this affliction! :-)

However, these days, when I’ve got my sequencer in front of me filled with tracks of uninspiring nonsense, I’ve got into the habit of holding my breath and just selecting all > delete. I just save all the sound settings / plugin setups, and start from scratch next time round.

I find going back to old unfinished works too much like polishing a t**d, generally counterproductive and a waste of precious hd space.
