Build-Up Sound for Trance

Tip to easily make a build-up sound for trance songs towards the breakdown.

  1. Use a cheesy synth sound.
  2. Put a long note for over 8 bars (or use a rhytmic synth sequence of short notes – preferably the same note).
  3. Automate pitch bend to go up from bar 1 to 8 over 2 octaves.
    • Just before the end of 8th bar, bring the pitch bend completely down by more than 2 octaves.
  4. Put a high-pass filter that closes or opens from beginning to end.
  5. Add effecs to the sound as you like and automate where you believe this can build even more up. Like adding reverb or delay.
