Forum Information

Dear users, I have decided to phase out the posting on the forums on this website and move any discussions over to this private facebook group. While the forums were great 10 years ago, they are now difficult to maintain due to constant spam. I spend most of my time just cleaning them up, rather than interacting. This, combined with finding it difficult to directly communicate with other users through several different social media platforms, I have decided to consolodate it all to one group where people can chat with me, ask questions and jibber jabber with other users on a regular basis. I will not make the forums offline as there is a wealth of content, but posting has now been disabled. Thanks to all those who have contributed over the years, and I'll see you over on the Facebook group! -Tom

Welcome, Guest

Hey, welcome to the members forum. This is a place where we all talk about all kinds of stuff.

The next step is to introduce yourself to the rest of the tribe, let us know a little bit about you, where you come from, what you like to do etc.

Just hit reply below, that's it.

Cheers :)

-Tom

Hello. I'm in Seattle. Lived in Alaska for the past 5 years....thats where I'm originally from. Surprise, surprise....theres really no electronic scene up there.....eager to immerse myself into some good dance music here. Haven't found any Psy though....a very elusive genre....

I like your beats, Tom! I'm glad I found this site.

Im glad you put up this site and your live set, its cool to see someone doing what your doing. thanks alot.

Im from Tampa, Florida. I just started out with the whole computer music production and having a blast with it so far, despite the frustrations that come along with learning a new complex program and a new os. Any time I eat sun dried tomatoes it has to be with home made humus and good flat bread.:)

Hey folks,

The name is Ben. I'm in Brissy, Australia but spend most of my time in Canberra. I know it's a sad sad town.

I got onto this site through my love of making music (I wanted to learn more, so I checked out some tutorial stuff on youtube, and this is where I came across Cosm). Funny enough, I have been making electronic music for around 12 years; however, I have never pushed the barriers and haven't got onto any good software till now. Thanks for the insite into ableton Tom. Most appreciated. In the last couple of days I have been playing around and I think my music has improved immensely. Still got a long way to go, but just maybe now I can really push what I know. I'd love to play live at a doof one day, even early in an event.

Thanks again

Ben

PS. Any sort of tomatoes are fine with me. Also, I wanted to try upload a track I have been playing with, any suggestions on where I might be able to do it?

ok lets try that again.

For those listening, just remember this is what I have done yesterday, so it's a foundation. And while it's called \"where is my psy\", it's not psy trance.

Also, Tom. I'm trying to upload now, but I noticed the hover comment for the file attach box still says 120kb max. Just incase it doesn't work

Attachment where_is_my_psy.zip not found

Hey, name's Mike. I've been into electronic music since birth... literally I think I heard an 8-bit synth lead as I emerged from the womb. I'm a live sound engineer by profession and a musician during my time off. Currently residing in the states.

Dried mangos all the way. :woohoo:

Greetings,

My name is Sebastien, I come from France. Im a student in a computing graduate school in Paris.

Im a musician and Im very interested by a lot of different styles of music: mainly Trance, Lounge and Electro, but Rock and Metal too.
I play the drums in my band and the guitar in solo.
May one day I will start working on tunes and samples, but at the moment I don't have enough time (days are too short for me!).

I discovered Tom Cosm in the Boom Festival 2006, Im still addicted to the 1 hour mix that I have on my laptop, that's why I came here!

Hey guys it's Mike from England here. Been using ableton for a week now. Up and running mainly thanks to Tom and his helpful tutorials and live set to play with.

Have even managed to create some tunage that doesn't make your ear drums want to burst.

www.isound.com/nu_mix_gb

I dedicate all 3 of these songs to Tom for pretty much single handedly getting me to a point where i could produce them.

[sarcasm]What an honor i bequeath thee with.[/sarcasm] lol.

Anyway sundried all the way wahoo....
