I have troubles writing the after-drop section?

How to do this, that and the other. Share, learn, teach. How did X do that? How can I sound like Y?

So yeah, everytime i finished the first drop and i start building the "break" i cant get it to sound good, always seems like im just copy-pasting the intro, wich make it sound boring, has any of you have any tips? Thanks in advance KVRAudio!

copy and paste the intro.

then flip some notes, reverse the rhythm, drop out odd notes, add more notes, chop all the notes in half...


try just using what you have and rearranging it in multiple ways, could spark an idea!

That section should be the peak of the track so write that first and drop stuff in/out during the preceding sections.

"Oooh I dont know. Sounds a bit scary"
"It's not scary. You just lose a sense of who you are and all that sh!t"

This entire forum is wading through predictions, opinions, barely formed thoughts, drama, and whining. If you don't enjoy that, why are you here? :D ShawnG
