    As a musician, I try not use any particular instrument/sound and make it a signature sound. Contrarily, I just try to make whatever sound I used as hot as possible, so that it will function the way that I intend for it to function...you dig?

    I guess there are advantages to creating a "sound". On the other hand I see the disadvantages as well.... What happens when that sound/trend wears thin, and what used to be hot isn't anymore? Do you give up producing and start managing, or tap dancing, or what?

    My rule of thumb is to strive to make whatever your sound is, innovative. And keep moving music forward. It's our responsibility to the art form.

    i agree with you 100%. Sometimes a particular sound can be misconcepted for structure of a track, or the way a producer uses his beats within the structure. you can sort of recognise aswell producers structures and way of making tracks.

    btw i make electronic hardcore, sometimes use rap lyrics in my tracks, particularly popular with my friends is the dipset movement, so I also like to use his samples. I have particular kicks which define me or can be classified as my own sound and that no other producer can make such a kick. ofcourse this is also with the help of distortion and eq effects. Also in hardcore tend to explore more other sounds in music and implement them into hardcore sound. Hence often hardcore sound can sound different all the time in my books.

    Drums here too, no big suprise. Also bassline is a must. But definetly try to keep switching your sound up, makes it hard to follow.

    Drums and Bassline is most important for me. But I'd say my signature is that Rhodes/Wurlitzer sound. Most of my beats have it somewhere in them..

    I think mine is the piano...any kind. It is just easier to create the melody on a piano. really tho u shouldn't jus have a "signature instrument" i can understand something that stands out to where you can tell itz your beat...but it shouldnt be a specific instrument. you have to constantly change up how you produce...whether it be you tempos, you instruments or just the over all feel of it

    most of my songs use strings in some way. I think if used properly they can give a beat depth and can carry beats along, you have to find the right sounds though, so many tunes i hear have really shitty sounding strings

    Pizzicato and Guitar are my signatures..But it really depends on what beat I'm making what instruments I tend to use more often..
