RTT x Point Blank Artist Production Series Vol. 1: KRNE on Fast Workflow
In partnership with Point Blank Music School, this production series will be recurring with a variety of installments that will include guest posts from hot up and coming artists who will offer inside tips, detailed looks into the minds and tools of producers, as well as tricks of the trade for all you aspiring producers at home.
I say it like the bird Crane, but with a K.. And if you wanna see my workflow in action, you can also make sure to follow me on Twitch where I periodically stream my production sessions. Limit Choice Choice is paralyzing. Too many snare samples, too many new patches, too many plugins. Cultivate your go-to sounds over time and have your reliable presets at the ready when you just need to get an idea out. Using that kick in a few songs starts to make it a part of my signature and recognizable in addition to helping me just choose a kick and move on.
Work Across the Arrangement I see a lot of producers get stuck in the 8-bar loop phase. Once you get a concept for a section down, force yourself to move on and come back to it. Block out the whole arrangement early because once you start pivoting to arranging vs. You may realize that that original 8-bar loop now should sound differently based on the section you wrote to go before it.
Force Yourself to Finish lots Forcing yourself to finish means being okay with imperfection. If you wanna learn to work fast you need to get fast at every stage of production — concepting, sound design, mixing, mastering… That means you have to routinely work across all those phases, and the only way to do that is to finish songs.
The only way to get fast is to go through each stage of production constantly. Not just the one you enjoy hanging out in the most. Work Outside the Studio Studios are great, but get out and try and work somewhere else everyday. Go work at a cafe. On the bus. At the airport. Your dining table. I do a ton of songwriting on public transit. Because working fast also means being able to sit down anywhere, with the most minimal of tools, and get some ideas out.
Think of yourself as a painter who carries around their sketchbook all the time. It may not be handy for writing your next opus, but it might lead to that initial nugget of an idea that turns into something amazing when you get back to your fancy studio. Movin, Dollar Sines, even my Keys n Krates remix all started outside the studio. The initial chords and sample-chop in Movin I remember I made on the bus on my way to work when I had a grown-up job.
And that was the crux of the whole song. Then when I got back to my studio it was just about doing that riff justice by building around it and turning it into a song. The ideas can come all the time, so always be in a mode to capture and explore them no matter where you are. If you find yourself bound to midi, start dropping random wavs into your timeline. The more you practice different ways of working, the more freeing it becomes when your stuck because you can alter your workflow — the thing that probably has you stuck.
When that process feels stale, and get the midi keyboard out and just start recording myself jamming. Every time, you can pick up a couple tricks that can freshen up your approach and lead to new results. And when you really get stuck, just turn off your inner-critic and start doing random, weird things.
Sometimes you gotta make shitty ideas before the one just pops out. You never know how a track will sound. You have an intent, an inspiration or idea, but the workflow transforms your end result and part of working fast is to notice when something new or unexpected pops up and being willing to go with it.
