Reverse hits

A reversed hit soundOne of the most popular reverse hits is a reverse cymbal. You hear it all the time in pop or techno songs. The reverse cymbal crash leads to the next bar. It works well as a buildup and transition. To make your own reverse hit, try taking a nice loud percussive sound that hits and then gets quieter from there on out. Then in any sound editor such as Audacity, reverse the sound. Save it and import it into your sequencer with a sampler. Then experiment with the amount of time you have to play the sound so that it reaches its peak right at the point where the next bar begins. Check out this reversed sound of a metal barrel being hit (I use this one all the time as a precursor to a huge transition).Example 2: a cool free reverse hit on freesound
