Riser Effects is the term for the kind of sounds that rise in pitch over time. Sounds that continuously increases the energy and tension build up. However, even though the general direction is going upwards, you can add rhythm or internal movement into the upwards slide to make it more unique. You can also shape the overall curve of the riser over time. These types of sound effects are great for building energy into a new section of your music, for example: Going from a verse into the chorus…But you can also use shorter and less pronounced risers just before you introduce new parts and elements. Riser effects are heavily used in EDM music, and epic cinematic style music. But you can use them in almost any genre. Sometimes you want a more organic sounding riser effect made from real instruments and sounds…and other times you want an electronic style riser made from synthesized sounds, to really add that focused and sharp build-up of energy.
You will learn both from my best guidelines and tips, and from practical live examples and demonstrations. So get ready to create some riser effects, right now!
