As it says on the tin.
I wonder how long I'll manage to push it, but here's the first one, for the very first day of 2019:

Well, it's the second day of the year, and with it comes the second song of the year. :)

Sounds cool! What do you use to make the acid? I'm a big acid fan myself... My last two tracks had it :D

Thanks. :) I make my 303's with ABL3 most of the time and with Subtractor some of the time. Rarely I also use other synths for it. (kHs ONE being the last one I remember using for 303's other than my main choices).

And thanks again Micha1973. :)

Fourth song out. This one was a nightmare to write, the first 4 hours I had no idea if the stuff I was doing will even be useful, but it all turned out for the best over the next 2 hours.

Still going strong here. It's day 6, and for today's song I even dared to sing a bit. :p

7th song done, and that concludes the first week of 2019.

I fully intend to keep going, but we'll see how tomorrow goes.

8th song done, and it actually came out faster than all the previous ones. About 4 hours of work, vs the 6+ hours each of the previous songs took. :)

I burnt out. Feels bad folks. Can't make sense--
Scratch that. As I was writing this post (2-3 hours ago) about to admit defeat and feeling totally shitty about it, I gave it another go (the 5th or 6th time I was gonna stop the project today and then tried again), and eventually this was the result:

I like all of your tracks!
My advice is to post every single track in new topic. You will have more responces. People always read new topics.

Thanks, and also thanks for the tip, but I just thought it'd be inconsiderate to flood the forum with a new song every day. Keeping it all in one thread doesn't push anyone else away. :)

Got the 11th done. It's a good'un, even though the computer BSOD'd twice and tried to ruin my fun. (First time around I lost some automations, second time around I was already saving more obsessively than usual, so lost nothing).

Thanks DrGOA. :)

Here's the 12th one, and as it turns out, it also happens to be my 300th song ever finished. :O

Thanks DrGoa & Micha1973. :)

I'm thinking of taking a break from the writing for the rest of the month, just for the lovely round number of total songs written (though on the other hand, taking a break at 303 songs would be more appropriate for me), and then doing FAWM for another 14 songs in February (which'd bring the total up to 314, another nifty little number :p).
I'm not sure, there have been days where the writing had been a serious struggle and I almost threw in the towel, which was accompanied by feeling like shit about it. This could be a good idea because I don't feel a twinge of failure accompanying the writing pause.
On the other hand, I haven't burnt out yet, so maybe I should keep taking advantage of my creativity and productivity.

Oh, and I had a great (and very challenging) idea for my 303rd song: I'll use 303's for everything. No other instruments (but plenty of effects to shape it into the different roles it'd need to fill). :p

Woman here. I don't know if you're using bro as a none-gendered word or what, but it kinda reads weird to me. :p
