Top 20 Best Music Producer Memes
1. Snare Sounds Like Sh*t
OK, let’s start with one of the biggest in-jokes in the production world, the crappy snare sound!
This one never ceases to be funny and is the pinnacle of self-deprecating producer humor.
Hey, isn’t this why we have drum triggers nowadays?
2. Analog Vs. Digital
Yeah, we’re all guilty of this, aren’t we? But really, if it sounds good, does it matter?
Okay, keep cool and just tweak a few more of those compressor dials. Screw it. Just hit bounce and normalize!
4. The Glass Is Always Half Empty
We, producers, don’t always have the most positive outlook.
Thankfully it’s normally just a bit of sarcasm when it comes to the labor of love that is creating music!
5. Bedroom Producer
Well, when you put it like this… It’s the 21st century anyway; we only need a laptop and headphones.
6. Start ‘Em Young
This isn’t even a meme. My baby’s first words will be “make some room for the kick.”
7. The Car Test
How great is that feeling when the mix is clear, punchy, and crisp on your monitors and in your car?
Don’t know. IT’S NEVER HAPPENED!
8. Industry Standard!
Excuse the pixelated meme, but this one always makes us laugh. Sure Pro-Tools has a bad rep, but we love it, really.
9. The Newbie
We’ve all been there, and we all know someone like this! This is what presets are for, right?
10. Star Daws
Nothing like a good pun, eh? This one is for all the production Jedis out there.
11. Breaking Bad(ly mixed)
Whoever did this, we salute you! The EQ sweep always has us in stitches. I am the one who bricks wall limits!
12. Night Terrors
Why, oh why does inspiration seek me in the middle of the night rather than the 9 hours I’ve spent in front of an open session with no pre-chorus?
13. Too Many Cooks
This and “Hey, can you put a telephone effect on my vocal?”
14. My Spidey Sense Ain’t Working
Turn down every instrument in turn, then back up, and repeat until the end of time.
15. The Producer’s Most Precious Possession
I swear there is some ghost in my house that steals these and plectrums. When I move house, I’ll find about $500 worth of adapters.
16. Dad’s Finally Proud
True story, I once (for a joke) wrote the cheesiest power ballad I could, and my mom said it was the best music she’d heard me make. Truth.
17. It Helps To Visualize
Not sure if a meme or a really good way of explaining this…
18. Making Waves
I’m looking at you, Waves sale!
19. The Devil Is In The Detail
Follow us for more pro tips. Surely this must sound good, right? RIGHT!?
20. Use Your Ears
Am I noticing the changes because they are actually there or because I spent $200 on this plugin? Oh wait, it’s in bypass.
