Trifonic: Sound Design – Pitch Sweeping FX

7 May

In this video, Brian demonstrates how to transform any audio sample – he starts with a friggin’ harmonica riff – into a THX-style pitch sweep sound.

This technique is useful for creating transitions and other sound effect elements in your tracks. And, of course, for impressing the ladies.

    Speed up slow down FX works great on vocals. It is possible to get Ligeti (composer, his music was used in 2001: Space Odyssey) like vocal textures by having notes slowly pitch away from a starting note.
