Passive pickups are built by wrapping a magnet in multiple coils of copper wire, it’s the oldest form of guitar amplification. Active pickups still use copper coils like passive pickups, but fewer of them, since they incorporate a battery-powered preamp to boost the signal level.
“I’m soon recording my debut single and a follow-up EP as well, therefore I’m working much on my writing and production skills. The most useful thing I learned was the practical approach of creating a tidy score for strings musicians.”
Oh, KanTay (I promise I didn’t make that up, and I am already regretting using it). Before all of this “Famous” garbage happened, Taylor Swift and Kanye West had a hilarious run-in at the VMA’s way back in 2009. Well, not hilarious for them. But super funny for the rest of the world watching.

As you probably already know by now, Logic Pro offers dozens of electronic and organic percussion instrument options, but songwriters and producers working with this DAW often struggle to keep their drum parts from sounding lifeless and conventional, without strategies to put life back into these out-of-the-box samples.

Before founding my current project Madam West, I played and sang solo with my ukulele, usually in reaction to some breakup I was still bitter over. I referred to myself as a singer-songwriter, a term which tends to conjure up an image of a lovelorn twentysomething strumming an acoustic instrument in cowboy boots (which, in my case, was totally spot-on). In the past few years, I’ve come to redefine and expand my own definition of a songwriter. I’ve been lucky enough to meet a plethora of songwriters who push the limits of that stereotype. In addition to singing or playing an instrument, some do their own composing and full band arranging, while others write electronically, producing and/or engineering from home studios.
