How to create risers in VCV Rack

I just completed a tutorial for music producers who like to put devices called risers in their music.  A riser is a musical noise that starts at a low volume and a low pitch and rises gradually to a quite high volume and pitch. 

Risers are very common in EDM, Pop and Electronica. Risers are used as background or to separate parts of a musical piece or to accentuate tempo or key changes and add excitement.

Sample Riser

As you can hear, risers are not necessarily simple sounds. 

A modular synthesis is an ideal way to create unique sounds including risers. This tutorial uses VCV Rack software modular synthesizer which I have been spending a lot of time with.

I have made three other tutorials about VCV Rack.  This is a YouTube play list including them. 

I also have playlists with much of my production in modular synthesis.

This one is more meditative pieces:

This one is more experimental and up tempo.

Thanks for your attention to my efforts…

Namaste,

Cy
