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

Megaset 2.0 - The Premier Ableton Live Template

The Megaset 2.0 is here! I've finally finished my masterpiece. It's been an incredible journey full of joy, frustration and learning, but the end result is worth all those late nights of hard work.

This is by far the most comprehensive, in depth and professional Ableton Live Template I've ever created. It comes with an arsenal of fresh content and new creative ideas, including:

  • A whopping 14 Gigabytes of original audio loops and samples, all chopped up and warped, ready to play.

  • Complex Racks for creating new content and mangling up sounds.

  • Custom Max for Live patches to speed up various tasks, giving you more time to be creative.

  • 31 page manual covering everything from the basics of Live, to chopping up your own tracks ready to jam.

  • Launchpad support with Max for Live patches that totally rewire the way they work.

The thing I am the most excited about however, is my new technique of routing audio through a gauntlet of Audio Tracks with Dummy Clips, with the added ability to sequence Dummy Clips (128 of them over 16 Dummy Tracks) using a simple MIDI clip.

I created a device called Dr. Dummy that listens to the MIDI notes you feed it, turning them into Clip Slot triggering messages. This means you can create your own preset sequences of Dummy Clips, or record on the fly using your favorite external controller (or just the computer keyboard.)

I've performed several live sets using this technique already, and each time it blows me away how easy, fun and simple it is to come up with something totally new each time. It's really changed the way I approach live performance, especially when working with pre-rendered audio samples (however you can send synths as well and get the same result).

The Megaset 2.0 download is available right now for Pro Members.

Note that you will need Ableton Live 9.0 Suite or above to use this Megaset.

Pro Membership is instant and secure, find out more or join up here to get the Megaset 2.0 right now.

The Bullshit Free Dubstep and Glitch Hop Powercourse (Extreme)

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

DubstepGlitchScreenShot

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
