    Risers & Impacts

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I'm looking for riser and impact libraries--preferably free, otherwise as cheap as possible (under $50 would be great).

    For those who might be wondering what I'm referring to: "risers" create a "rising" sound, and "impacts" create an "impact" sound. (Totally counterintuitive, I know!)

    These effects are typically used in EDM, but I find them useful for all kinds of styles.

    Does anyone know of any decent inexpensive ones?

    Thanks,
    Dirk

    Here's one (dedicated classic, available expansions) on sale called "The Riser":

    I think that this one is used more than most would admit to create/augment their own libraries.

    A dedicated DAW pitch-wheel automation track will turn any sustained note into a riser or a fall

    See if your synth has a long-duration setting for the portamento time---another easy way to do risers/fall with sustaining notes (especially nice if the portamento is polyphonic)

    If you have Kontakt, by this point you probably shudder when you see another impact library, especially as a qualifier for a "cinematic" library. Also, if the samples in effects-based/cinematic Kontakt libraries are open-source, third-party libraries (e.g., Zero-G) that usually have the samples in WAV format (read the specs), they will be available for direct use in a DAW without Kontakt.

    You should check to see if there is a patch library that covers this for your favorite synth (e.g., "Massive Fuel" for Massive from PulseSetter Sound).

    Loops. All over the place in the impact category. A Google search will find them for you for free or for purchase.

    Take any drum/percussion sample and add saturation/distortion/bit-crushing and pre- or post- reverb/delay (and stretching the tail of the sample) to roll your own impacts.

    I hope this helps.
