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.
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…
