how much time do you spend each day doing exercises?
profile
I do 20 minutes, its part of my morning routine: Cafe and soundgym. After I do 15 minutes of music production and 5 minutes of sound scouting, where i look for new sounds =)

I'm curious, @Ruben Degendorfer, are there places you go to find new sounds? I'm trying to do more listening, but I'm overwhelmed with the amount of music out there.

Hi @Oliver Shou ! Right now it takes me about 40 mins. On the first days, it took about an hour.

At first, I assumed that if I took the time to listen super carefully, then I would get the right answers... this wasn't always the case.

So throughout the week I've been developing more of an instinctive style. Following my gut reactions as soon as I sense them. It's been working really well, but doesn't always work, too.

I'm trying to balance speed and instinct. :)

Hi @Dave Soltura

Thanks for the response! Maybe I should practice longer. Takes me about 10-15 mins to finish the daily workout every morning and that's all I do.
