Not sure if this is in the right category, but I was wondering if more people are planning on participating in #jamuary2021? Would be cool to share jams here in this topic.
I would like to participate this year too. It’s a lot of work, but totally rewarding.
Let’s see how many jams I can post. I have never passed more than day 20.
This sounds fun and a great way to begin the year playing. Are there guidelines? I don’t do videos of my jams, just recordings… Will that qualify as a Jamuary jam?
As far as I know there are no rules defined. It’s basically challenging yourself, get inspired, learn and have fun!
Count me in. I have planned to focus my Jamuary on my Microbrute – combining the creative challenge with focused learning/exploring. I will have it set-up with pedals and Ableton ready to go.
Would love to. Depends on how the CV19 affects workload in the new term.
I’ll do my best to keep up!
So here is my first #jamuary2021 jam (sketch or whatever your want to call this) called ‘The Standoff’. The video was re-editted to fit the sound. For details see the YouTube description.
Happy New Year everyone, here’s my first jam. It feels good to get going. All sounds made with Microbrute + Empress Superdelay VMSD through a little Tech21 practise amp.
MachineDrum, Digitone, Octatrack as the mixer for the drones from the Modular. HydraSynth for the glassy synth arp at the start.
(update: I just noticed that since this embed is a playlist, and because I top-post to it — it updates each day with my submission. Noice!)
Going to try to rock something every day
my first entry, hopefully not the last one
I will probably need to rethink my approach as right now setting up the hardware and then rendering etc. everything takes more time than actual beat making itself so maybe I will resort just to using software or maybe OP-Z. But nonetheless here is the first beat of jamuary - nothing to write home about but still it counts as something
I have used hydra for visuals: https://hydra.ojack.xyz/ but closed the tab before saving the code which I could share with you sorry about that.
Attempting it. First day.
For day2 I decided to try something else and tried recording coldwave loop:
Again it is not my best track but probably that is not the aim of jamuary
The visuals are again made using Hydra. I changed the colors a little in iMovie but the code to generate the pattern is:
osc(40,0.1,1).modulate(noise(4,0)).kaleid(4) .modulate(osc(4+(Math.sin(time*2)), 0, 1)) .blend(noise(20,0.1).kaleid(4).kaleid(4),0.5) .contrast(2).luma().out()
I am no expert in Hydra so it could probably be generated with a lot simpler code
