#jamuary2017 - one jam a day for all of January

Hello,
I just wanted to pop in and tell you about #jamuary2017 that's going on for all of January.
The goal is simple: Post one jam every day for all of January. That's the goal. But obviously if you don't have time, just post one jam here and there when you have the time. The thing is, so many people have joined in, and I guess many of you here too?
Over at Instagram, where most of it is going on, browsing the hashtag #jamuary2017 has become such a beautiful experience, with such a diverse collection of jams on all sorts of instruments. The OP-1 being well represented. Anyhow, I just thought I'd share this project with you guys. Please join in.

Browse what people are doing:

Here's my jam from yesterday where I've been fiddling around with the Sketch sequencer.

I'd be delighted if you joined in, if you like the idea :)

    Started mine a few days ago on my YouTube channel thanks to you @cuckoo and you're right, trawling through all the jams is a real inspiration!
  • @cuckoo I started doing jams on Instagram but my little girl was born on Jan 4 so I'm dealing with a different kind of jam at the mo :-)
  • Hey, congratulations mate !!

  • Thanks guys, funnily enough there's a dude who rocks OT and AR in the local parents group. I'm finally going to be able to lay my hands on an OT. For now however it's all about nappies :-D
  • Shit is getting serious then, eh? ;)

    Pooh jam...
  • Thanks lads. I realise now how underrated sleep is. But at the same time I'm fascinated to have a mini me!
    Let's hope for more of my jams towards the end of month. In the meantime I'll enjoy yours :)
  • Managed to sneak one in! Impossible is nothing. Sky is the limit (almost).

  • Yeah, great vibe!
  • Congrats @lefilou! Enjoy the early months, you get even less time as they get older! :P
  • Good luck and congratulations!
    Kids are the most wonderful creatures. I work at a preschool here in Japan. I love their curiousity!

    Great session, mate! That 0-Coast has such a clear beautiful tone! I wish I could try one out at some point.
  • Yes indeed !
    I chose this little synth because I felt it has a lot of character + it's not redundant with my other gear. I love it !

    And it totally killed my embryon of need for some modular stuff/additive synthesis.
    I'm done with this one.


  • Been having fun watching the videos and I'm ecstatic about all the activity I can see!

    Very inspiring! Progress not perfection. I don't want Jamuary to end. Can we think up a new thing for February?

    I made this

  • There's always the RPM Challenge in February! I too have been loving #Jamuary. These challenges are a great way of beating laziness.
  • Still a week for #Jamuary2017, guys !
    Don't let the month be gone before putting your own little contribution to the incredible response !

    @Cuckoo I am very impressed by the number of jams labelled with your tag : you definitely have a very positive influence on the internet mate !!
    :D
    I wonder if there is a way to get an estimation of the number of tracks that were made with such tag... Any ideas people ?
  • Yeah, props go out to @cuckoo and @jjbbllkk for their great inspirational and positive videos.
  • This jamuary2017 thing is really a great idea. It finally got me to make videos :)
    Now I've added a new entry with OP-1. It is an incredibly incredible device. At least something is undoubtedly great in the below video :)

    Jam with only outboard gear. No presets. Used the PC to record the audio only.
