The Ableton CookBook - Rising Synth Transition


Question: How do people in the club know when it is time for them to yell ?


Answer: Because the buildup of the track tells them to.


A buildup or a transition is an incredibly important part of a song because it telegraphs to the listener that a change is coming up: a drop or a different drum pattern or rap acapella looped to just say ?butts? (this happens a lot). One of the most popular and versatile buildups is the ?rising synth? buildup, where a synth tone glides up an octave over the course of a bar or two.


I get a lot of emails asking me where to get that ?Rising Synth VST.? Bad knews: I don?t know of such a thing. Good news: You can make one with Ableton?s simpler!


In this video, I show you how to make a rising synth starting with a single waveform.
