Holy crapsticks, have I really been doing this for TEN YEARS?!?!?! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Wow. I was 21 when I discovered FAWM, having just purchased a Mac Mini and Logic Pro (It came on 15 DVDs o.o), and now I'm on number 11! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Still haven't managed to be in a position where I can take the whole of February off to concentrate on le muzique, so maybe next year, eh?

Looking forward to getting going! I've been in a piano concerti-meets-synthwave headspace a lot recently, so I'm hoping I come up with some really interesting stuff. ๐Ÿ˜€

Song vidyas can be found on YouTube at


2018-03-01 @ 00:23: Well, I hit 12, even if I'm not happy with some. I have another 6 or so ideas I started on that never went anywhere which I could do something with some day, so all in all much more productive than last year. ๐Ÿ˜€

Now, roll on MALMo! (March Album Listening Month!)

    I dig what Iโ€™ve heard. Def willing to collab next fawm. Thanks for the comments.

    That's a fantastic tip for using the tremolo - thanks for passing it on. The way side-chaining is used usually gives me physical sensations of discomfort, unfortunately. So I can appreciate a technique that is similar to but not exactly like. Thanks!

    Thanks for your kind comment ! ๐Ÿ˜ I wish i was game dev... i mostly do graphics and music ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Before this FAWM, i never really used the Evil Drums library... But when you mix it... its sounds really nice! I guess i changed my mind about it ! For massive, i'm about leaving it and try to manage Serum but i need to find some good songs library... ๐Ÿ˜

  • @timothybracken Feb 2018

    Thanks for the listen and feedback! Haha the synth heavy stuff is not my normal mode of operation, but it helped me come up with a song. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
