Virtual instrument maker AIR Music Technology has introduced The Riser, a new synthesizer for “creating powerful transitions.” Created with electronic dance music producers and DJs in mind, The Riser “infuses tracks with progression and hype.”
Central to The Riser are three editable sound generators – sweep, noise, and chord – which allow the user to manipulate the movement, timbre, and tonality of the transition. Three low-frequency oscillators (LFOs) provide modulation duties for each patch, including beat-synced movements and what AIR are calling the “Pumper” effect to modify dynamics. Reverb, delay, and mixer controls allow the user to shape transition volume, effect saturation, and stereo imaging.
The Riser highlights:
- Transition designer optimized for electronic music production
- 3 editable oscillators; sweep, noise, and chord
- 3 LFOs; free-running, tempo-synced, and “Pumper”
- “Pumper” effect creates pulsating movement based on native DAW tempo
- Configurable delay and reverb with wet/dry processing
- Adjustable panning movements and master stereo width control
- AU, VST, AAX; 32 and 64bit; Mac or Windows
