    Hey Cosm – what’s the program you use for capturing your videos and getting
    it to automatically apply the bottom keypresses? That’s really useful!

  2. rawstarmusic says:

    You make some serious videos, 1 hour long. Your workflow is so fast that
    you can put on the screenflow while working normally:) Your SO good at
    Ableton, just Cosm us.

    great tutorial Cosm learned alot :)

    Big thanks Tom. I was about sick to death of hearing other information
    types end with “now just resample to make it really crazy” and leave me
    hanging. Glad I was able to see it in actual practice and some fuzziness
    was cleared up. Keep it up mang.

    Reverse reverb on bass is really amazing! )

  8. James Faulder says:

    lol Tom Cosm is the 1 person in the world you’d least expect to be stumped
    by ableton adding a load of random effects, maybe it was just trying to
    help. The first 10mins should be a seperate video called ‘Tom tryies to
    make a bassline but can’t help from giving an in-depth FM synthesis
    tutorial’. Great video, thanks so much

    Hi – is that operator synth only part of Ableton Suite?

  10. André Édipo says:

    The “new audio track” must have these effects as default. You must’ve saved
    it without noticing.

  11. Simon De Thuin says:

    Hi Tom! I already had that bug. Actualy there’s a “gost” selection on the
    effects, so when you clicked on the limiter it also launched all the effect
    before it (look how they are all in alphabetical order). Nice video though
