Sylenth1 Tutorial Pt2 (Riser)



Here’s a very quick and simple Sylenth1 tutorial for you… how to create a pitch ‘riser’!

FIRST UP

Select the initial preset from the menu…

NOW
Set an oscillator to your desired waveform (any is good for this as it’s all about experimenting to find interesting sounds to suit your track), for the purposes of this tutorial i am using a saw wave tuned down 1 octave as shown here…

NEXT UP
Draw a long continuous midi note like this…

Sounds a bit boring doesn’t it! So let’s sort that out…

Now for some PITCH MODULATION!
fig4
Go to the ‘MOD ENV 1′ section and select Pitch AB (or just Pitch A), turn the dial clockwise all the way, and raise the Attack slider all the way up (as shown in the above image).

Now play that sound…

PLAY RISER SOUND!
Sounds more interesting now!

Of course this technique can be used to make a variety of riser sounds, using different waveforms, notes, effects, gates, arpeggios etc so it is well worth experimenting with!
