So I'm after some opinions on the use of Acapellas and how you guys use them. I think I'm at the point where I find it difficult to stay interested in a instrumental for too long. I suppose it doesn't help that I make hip-hop music as it tends to be more repetitive than other genres.
Personally, I think it's easier to determine whether or not what you've got could be a 'hit' when you can actually hear someone else over it. The only downside I find it that using acapellas stripped from other beats can muddy up mine.
Does anyone else have trouble getting 'excited' about their beat until they have someone spitting over it? I find it easier to demonstrate to friends as well.
