Hi. My name is Cliff Wallach Greenberg. I am a music producer here at Rok On Studio. Today we're going to learn how to create sweeping noises in music. One of the ways you can create sweeping noises is by using an effect called a flanger. Let's go to the computer and I'll show you how to do it. So, we're here in Pro Tools and we're going to be adding a sweeping sound in to our twelve string acoustical guitar track, which is the green track. I'm again going to go to the inserts, I'm going do at a plug in. I'm going to go to modulation and then I'm going to choose what is called a flanger effect. And with, this particular plug in is called a metal flanger. And what happens here, a flanger is going to give you this sweeping, whoosing sound. Let me show you as an example. So, if Io bypass the sound, you can just hear the straight acoustic with it, this creates a very ethereal kind of interesting sound to go along within your song. As you can hear it adds a certain cool ambient sound. This has been Cliff Wallach Greenberg and that is how you create sweeping noises in music. Thanks for listening.
