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 or join the Discord for realtime chat. 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 or Discord! -Tom

The Bullshit Free Dubstep and Glitch Hop Powercourse (Extreme) Featured

I am very happy to announce the launch of my new tutorial series (and special last minute xmas gift voucher below)

Tom Cosm's Bullshit Free Dubstep and Glitch Hop Power Course. Extreme!

20 High Def videos covering the creation of a tune from start to finish, with a huge focus on 16 full power bassline patches, as well as 20 Ableton live project files to match each video.

I begin by laying down a drum beat, adding some fills, giving it some groove, then jump straight into the synthesis of heavy basslines. I start basic, explaining how things work, why things do what they do, the tools you have available, and end up with some of the most advanced and unique tricks and techniques my mind can come up with. Including:

  • Subtractive synthesis
  • Exploring the harmonic series
  • Frequency modulated (FM) synthesis
  • LFOs, Envelopes and Filters
  • Racks, Chains and Macros
  • Audio and Midi effects (including the vocoder)
  • EQing, Levels and Compression
  • Many other outside the square techniques to get unique sounds


Even if Dubstep/Glitch hop isn't your flavor, the straight to the point "no f#@ing around" pace should get your brain juiced up and ready to smash out your own style.

I've put up one of the videos on youtube so you can get a vibe as to how the series flows :

This series is available immediately to pro members right now from the Pro Download Archive.

I really hope you enjoy this new series and learn a lot from it! I've really enjoyed creating it.

Cheers, Tom
