Cosm by Studio Amplify

Today Cosm was released by Studio Amplify, not to be confused with Novation's confusingly named Studio Ampify. No, this is from the makers of NOIZ... not to be confused with ROLI's NOISE. Goddamn it. Never mind. Be very confused.

Cosm is a generative ambient app that, like all other ambient generative apps, is inspired by Brian Eno. Simply swiping on your screen creates new melodies. There's a lot of newage stuff in the description here, but it is actually useful in music making and includes Inter-app Audio.

Cosm iTunes Description:

Cosm lets you quickly and easily create your own ambient soundscape to relax and refocus. We believe music and creativity have an important role to play in improving our minds and souls.

People are using Cosm to help with:
• reducing stress
• anxiety
• improving concentration
• falling asleep
• reflecting on thoughts and emotions

# How it works
Cosm combines concepts from cognitive psychology and a style of 'minimalist music' pioneered by composers such as Steve Reich & Brian Eno. You simply tap or swipe to create melodies that combine to create an ever evolving soundtrack to immerse your mind.

Inspired by organic tones such as gongs and the sounds of the natural world, the sonic palette has been carefully crafted to be atmospheric and calming. Each layer of sound evolves over time creating a non-linear piece of music that is both relaxing and captivating.

Once you’ve created your soundscape, save it to your journal along with notes for future listening and self reflection.

# Background
Cosm was created as part of a collaboration between brothers Jonah Fox (Electroacoustic Composer), Alex Fox (Technologist/Producer) with guidance from Dr Chris Howard (Computational Psychology MIT).

# Features
• Save and load sessions to your journal
• Sleep and meditation timer
• Background mode (no screen time)
• Change between scales and pitches
• Inter App Audio (IAA) support [note: Cosm must be opened manually]

There is a tiny official demo. Embedded here is an amazing performance by Martin Neuhold with his guitar.

Yes, the naming is confusing in this realm...
I'm confused... my Roland VG99 had COSM processors.
