Tom Cosm – Nice & Naughty
We’ve been following Tom’s work for years, his MegaSet principle in Ableton Live was the core inspiration for one of our most popular devices, Follow. Always innovating, the Novation Circuit appealed to his nature of expression and now we proudly present his first pack of patches. Here’s what Tom has to say about them…
I wanted to make a pack that was great for people starting out. Powerful sounds and no confusing configurations. Something that is both half simple and half intense. Nice and naughty has the left 16 patches as good solid foundations to lay down ideas (smooth stabby basses, punchy leads, lush evolving pads etc), and the right most 16 has sounds that can get extreme and have wild variation using the Macro dials.
They are arranged so the first row is basslines, the second row is leads, the third row is pads and the fourth row is FX. I find this the most straight forward way to quickly load in another patch, as I love swapping them out on the fly not knowing what the next one is going to sound like, but being sure the sound is the same category as the last.
The macro knobs change depending on the patch, but usually the first four are OSC and modulation related, the last four are filter, distortion and chorus related.
I hope you enjoy this pack as much as I enjoyed creating it.
