Seeing as you're wanting an om solution, try the smack fm drums
patches, you can use them quite nicely for bells. I've got some
physical synthesis stuff that sounds a lot like bells too if you want
to have that. If it's actually the pad you mean then lots of osc's
with a bit of detuning always makes for nice pads.
