Tom Cosm - Megaset .1 (the ultimate Ableton Live set) - Part 2

This is a video tutorial covering my latest and biggest project, the Megaset. For the last 5 years, I have been shaping and toning my Ableton Live performance set canvas into what it is today. Over the last few months I have been working hard to clean this up and turn it into something publicly available. This Ableton Live Set covers many areas including * Compressing the layers of a tune down into a manageable format * Cutting the tune into loops and samples, ready to jam out live * Mixing easily between two, three, or any number of tunes in one single Ableton Live file * Routing audio through sends and sub channels so real time audio effects can be used * Chaining up channels with effects that suit each other * Utilizing blank dummy clips to uniquely automate parameters of effect chains An overview of the Megaset People might think I am mad putting this kind of information online, as it reveals my entire live performance technique which I have spent a large portion of my life mastering. If you are one of these people, please leave now, this isn't for you and you are wasting your time. However, if you are serious about learning what happens behind the scenes in a true live laptop performance and believe that keeping information like this as open as possible can only be a positive thing for the electronic music scene as a whole, this set is here for you to jump headfirst into the deep end and pick up your own techniques as you swim your way out. It has been tried and tested on dance floors all over the world and is now ready for you to get involved. This set is an ongoing project, that will constantly be updated with new versions, similar to how software gets released. I will listen and discuss with those who are using it, and add new functionality as time goes on. The megaset can be downloaded right now - for free - from
