Plugin Boutique Staff Picks - Solo

The Riser is a one-of-a-kind synthesizer for designing epic and noisy musical transitions of huge proportions. It features all of the tools required in order to compose heart-stopping transitions in one intuitive user-interface: including wave oscillators, noise generators, reverbs, delay, distortion, filters and feedback. In seconds, you can construct and fine-tune rises, falls, sweeps, swells, fades, and more!

Best Feature


The Riser gives you full control over three continuously variable oscillators that form the overall riser. From there, the exact duration of the 'riser' can be determined by whichever MIDI note you choose to play (the higher the note, the shorter the riser). On top of the oscillators, you can also layer and modulate 4 reverb types and 23 filter types to build even more tension. Finally, when you want to release all of the tension you've built, you can reverse the sound of any of the risers to create a huge crash or an impact.

With over 300 presets to get you started, it has never been easier to create massive effects that will have your audience on the edge of their seat. So whether it is main-room EDM you're making or even soundtracks or sound design, if you need an extremely powerful tool make your transitions look no further than The Riser by AIR Music Technology.
