Ever wondered why drummers in bands play drum rolls at the end of a section or measure? That’s because “rolls” help create a change in tension before the coming section or measure. Guitarists and bass players use similar techniques before a change to create transitions. In electronic music, there are various methods to achieve such transitions. These are called transition effects. Effects or FX can either be subtle or extreme and they can be used in live performances or recording situations.
Fx are a very important part of a track and can create all the essential movements in your track. They can include any recorded or synthesized sounds used as a supportive element in a track, making smoother transitions from one part to another. The effect shown in the video is that of a Riser Fx or transition Fx that can increase the energy in your tracks.
Almost all music available these days benefits from the creative use of effects, especially electronically synthesised music. With proper treatment, audio effects can really bring your music to life and take the listener to new sonic spaces.
