Kitten Loves Logic Pro, Too! (#music #production #logicpro #ableton #push2

Well, you saw our new kitten being totally fascinated by Push2 in Ableton Live in this video, but now it looks like he loves Logic Pro, too. Even he can’t decide which one to use – lol!

DJ Kat’s Best of FAWM 2022 (#Mixcloud)

I’ve uploaded a DJ track of my favorite songs I did for FAWM 2022.

I encourage all producers out there to finish their tracks and get them out there because that makes it real. That’s how you get better.

All-Star Cast of the “60SKULLS Gimme15bertha” #FAWM #music #corpse #skirmish

The coolest thing about FAWM is the community of fascinating and talented musicians of multiple genres from all over the world. They’ve generously invited me into their world and I’m honored to be counted as one of them, striving to be worthy.

The most talented, in my mind, goes by the name of “Wolf” and has put together an awesome track that will blow your mind, and I don’t use that phrase loosely. He was our “cruise director” for this mishmash of talent, creating and coordinating the birthday party of the century, Bertha’s 60th. Happy birthday, Bertha!

You might find me sprinkled throughout, but I’m the most proud of being called the “DJ” under the name of SBS2018.

Catch a sneak peek by Wolf, whose vocals I absolutely love (David Bowie, right?, followed by the full track available on Bandcamp.

Please like, share, download, and tell your friends (and I never say that either). But I would love for these people to be recognized for their talent, individually and as collaborators.

Btw, headphones recommended.

“Stop” in Logic Pro vs Ableton (#Music #Production)

So yesterday I said I was having such fun playing around with creating a track in Ableton Live and Push 2. You can hear it here.

Well, I couldn’t just leave it there. As I often do, I just had to import the tracks into Logic Pro mainly because I wanted to add some harmony vocals and I prefer doing vocals and arranging in Logic.

Notice how I’m inspired to spin a track with a different vibe depending on which DAW I’m using. Here’s today’s version in Logic.

One seems to be more of a dance track, while the other is more of a jazz number. Hmmm… wonder which one I should pursue… Do you have a preference?

 

2021 Accomplishments, 2022 Goals

I couldn’t let this year pass by without acknowledging what I’ve accomplished artistically in 2021.

The top 3 accomplishments of 2021 are:

  1. FAWM (February Album Writing Month) in February – write 14 songs during the month of February. I believe this is the first year I met that goal
  2. 50/90 (write 50 songs in 90 days – I wrote 60) – meeting that goal was also a first for me – my top 12 (plus a bonus track) were uploaded as an album on Bandcamp.
  3. NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International) – I managed to use all 12 of my membership feedback credits, which is another first for me

The top 3 goals for 2022:

Upgrading my Reverbnation account to Pro for 2022. As for the rest, I haven’t really locked this down yet. Under consideration:

  1. FAWM
  2. 50/90
  3. NSAI
  4. Ableton Push
  5. Fiction

As vague as usual when it comes to writing vs music. Some things I will just have to let unfold.

Wishing you all the best in 2022!

Well, remixes are just too much fun and I found myself doing a little something to Elvis’ “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”
