    Hi there,
    I would really love a tutorial on arrangement. I know it's a rather subjective and personal thing but I'm finding that it's the most difficult part of producing for me, I can come up with great parts all day but fitting them together to make a finished song that has a nice flow from start to finish is another story altogether. I've managed to do it anyway but I find that I spend way more time arranging and tweaking things than writing all the parts. I've tried using another song as a template but I usually find it more of a distraction than a help.
    And I'd really like to say thanks for everything, your tut's have been invaluable for me and I probably would never have gotten past the initial WTF of Ableton without your "introduction" series. My first EP will have a big thank you to Tom Cosm on it for sure.
    Cheers from warm and sunny Alaska :)

    Hi guys, Feyra Bass has submitted a pumping trance track! I have just added it to Dropbox It might take a while to upload as my account is syncing really slow right now as I am still doing the 1TB back up !

    So, we have 10 tracks now, maybe 11 , I need to confirm. If anyone has been given tracks to upload can they send me the track and artist info and I'll upload it to Dropbox and sort it out.

    I went on another tour of Europe last week with my music project and met up with lucky one again! always great to meet up with him. While I was away I switched off my Dropbox sync / backup and started it up again when I got back. Still 300 files and '5 days' to sync it all, but then I'll have a back up of ALL my files and I can start sorting my data/life out. but I just can't bring myself to do anything until I know all my data from the last 20 years is fully backed up! I've just had too many disks die on me, so i need to get this done. I am sure people can relate with that :)

    What I can do in the meantime is go through this whole thread and work out who is in / who is out and what tracks we now have and work on the album cover. I've been a lazy b*stard CosmicCore-wise this year, really finding it hard to get balance in my energy levels, I put a lot in to my Bossa Nova act releasing 2 albums with that and doing 2 tours which drained me a bit! but once I tune in to my potential and feel full of energy again, I can pump that energy back into Cosmic Core.

    So, I am hoping that once this backup solution is all synced up and my laptop is also running nicely I can get on top of things. I am balancing so much stuff though including normal shift work in an office as well as live gigs, teaching guitar and music technology and of course family commitments. A lot going on, but I will fit it all in! =)

    I think 2015 will be a great year for us. We will have released this album and will have Cosmic Core Volume III out, a multi-genre compilation album , so get your tracks ready for that. ANY style!

    I also have a really good idea too for a project that we can all contribute which would hopefully bring more of us together for live gigs wherever possible. I am quite excited about it and will put together the idea once I have sorted out this album! You are going to absolutely love the idea - I am certain about that!

    I will also work on things like business cards / flyers for us, stuff that will pull us together and feel more of a unit, albeit a worldwide, mostly virtual one! We have a lot of people and a lot of talent!

    Please also keep me in the loop of your events and releases so I can post stories about it on Social media and spread our links amongst friends. I've got us mentioned on Radio in Holland the other day and got tracks played in a pub in Brugge, that's the sort of things we all should be doing, we should be telling everyone all about our project all the time, even though we all have other projects, we will always be part of Cosmic Core and our albums will be around now and into the distant future! the more we can spread the word the more benefit it will have for us ALL =)

    So back to this album, give me another day or so to find out where we are and then we can get on with mastering what we have. Hopefully more tunes will be in too!

    No worries, no stress, it'll be done when it's done... but, if we can still make it by 31st December, how cool that would be! :silly: :)

Why Producing In-The-Box May Be Holding You Back

Being able to make a fully-fledged song on nothing more than a consumer laptop and a decent pair of headphones is a truly amazing representation of how technology has progressed over the last two decades.

It’s cheaper, faster, and easier. The immense joy of musical creation is no longer a luxury reserved for those with money. Instead, it’s readily available for any person willing to dedicate the time and patience.

But this advancement and opportunity comes with a few caveats, one of which is that the music creation process in the eyes of a bedroom producer has been flipped upside down, chopped-up, and compressed into one holistic task.

Is this a bad thing? No. Not at first look, at least. Every producer has a different workflow, and in my opinion, anyone who stays in the game long enough climbs out of the ruts and moves past difficulties in that area. 

Despite this, there is a problem that many developing bedroom producers encounter. The problem of frustration: not being able to finish tracks, taking too long to finish them, or trying to grasp at the enjoyment that you once felt when creating music. This sense of frustration generally has more than one cause, and this article probably won’t fix it, but it may help some of you. 


Quick Chain Select - New Free Utility

This utility allows you to specify 16 individual points on the chain selector, allowing you to jump to that point with a single push of a MIDI assignable button.

There is also a previous/next button to move forward or back through your points.

You can also enter text for each preset, which will be displayed in a popup window so you always know which point is selected.

Tips for Getting Your Tunes on the Radio

So you've crafted the next tech-lord masterpiece and you wanna share it with the world huh? Well let's get to it. Tom has asked me to share some tips with you that may improve your chances of getting played on the radio.


How To Approach Promoters, Artist Managers and Event Organizers

Trying to get booked for events when you are first getting yourself into the scene can be one of the most frustrating parts of being an artist or DJ.

When I first started, one of the things I wish I had hard wired into my brain is the fallacy of expecting of an equal amount of response, attention and effort to that of which you put in when you made a submission. A lot of the time you won’t get anything - but it’s not your fault!
