Don't forget that there's a video on this topic on this page too! Scroll down!

In this context, when I refer to special effects, I’m talking about relatively subtle post-production effects, including risers, downers, impacts, etc. All of these things are fantastic for adding that extra bit of polish to your productions, and for guiding the listener through your music. Want to build suspense? Use a riser. Want to make an intense part even more intense? Use an impact!

In today’s video, I walk you through my thought process for adding these effects to your music. You’ll learn what you should be listening for, what all of these effects sound like if you’re not familiar with them, and creative ways to process effects made by other producers. Enjoy!
