TPK Recipe: Making A Noise Riser in Ableton Live

A lot of different genres of music use noise risers, it’s the thing that goes whoooooosh as a song build to a climax. Some people don’t understand that it’s a simple effect to make. Learning little sound design tricks like this can take you a long way and save you time and money.

In this video I show how easy it is to build a noise riser, with just 5 ingredients.

When coming up with the video I though I’d be cool to have a riser rack that had different styles of noise in them. The rack I came up with is called, “Paul Riser”. It contains 5 different noises, 2 from my Moog Sub 37. You can get it for free by filling out this survey about TPK or you can buy it.

Ableton Live: Randomizing Samples Playback w/ Random MIDI Device

The Random MIDI device is one of the most slept on devices available in Live. You can have a lot of flexibility, fun and obvious randomization with it. Most people don’t use it because they don’t know where to start and what the parameters mean.

First off Random is a MIDI device so it doesn’t work on audio tracks. Second Random is not generic; it works by randomly generating notes and nothing else. Sure it’s MIDI so you can use another device to turn that in to velocity or whatever you want but in it’s natural state Random will take the note that is incoming and allow to randomize if it will play the original note or a not a certain distance above or below that orginal noted with the likelihood derterined by the change.

So take a gamble and play with Random. The video above will help you see how you can easily create unique hi-hat patterns. Download the project I created for the video and get extra examples using Sampler, a one finger step sequencer and a conga randomizer. All samples can be swapped to your liking.
