Soma Labs COSMOS Review, tutorial and 8 performance tips and ideas

SOMA Labs are known for making non-traditional instruments, and Cosmos is no different. Unlike regular loopers, Cosmos records multiple loops at the same time, in stereo – each at a slightly different length. The offset playback of loops quickly results in something almost, but not quite entirely unlike what you feed it. Which as the label says, becomes a drifting, distant memory.

Cosmos also does a few other interesting things, all of which I’ll take a close look at in this video, including its different algorithms, other features, as well as a few pros and cons:
