DAWless Jams by Stoilku, the owner of Octophonic Records and Black Magic Groove, are uploaded on his YouTube channel. His music style in these jams goes around Minimal House and Rominimal.

Why would anyone want to go jam without DAW? 

Well, if you spend most of your day in front of a computer screen because of your job or studies, the last thing you want to do is get home and find inspiration in the same environment. Also, having to deal with your DAW’s crashes and updates is not fun. Another reason is that living in a nostalgia era, a lot of people want to get back to the basics. On top of that, it is more fun.

Watch Stoilku’s performing

In the first two Minimal House jams he used only an Elektron Digitakt, the latest hit from Elektron after the Octatrack and Analog Rytm. Definitely, a most have groovebox for almost everyone who is looking for a new one to add to their studio.

Later on, in his third jam, he went into a more hypnotic style with a groovy melody and ethereal pads. Also, he added to his performance a Roland SE 02, an Elektron Analog Rytm, and a Korg Electribe 2.

Do you want to go jam without DAWs?

Producing music without a Digital Audio Workstation (Softwares like Ableton Live, Logic Pro, FL Studio) is something you will do sooner or later if you are into electronic music. At first, it might be overwhelming to understand new vocabulary like MIDI In/Out, MIDI Thru, Clock, Analog, Digital, Polyphony, of many more words. 

But after research, trial and error with your drum machines, synthesizers, sequencers, and grooveboxes, and persistence, you will be part of the club in no time. Come and be part of the Intaresu Community to connect with more like-minded people.
