    So I have a long cymbal crash noise.
    I've reversed it so I can use it as a riser. But now I want the noise as it comes in to smoothly slowly get lower in pitch before the drop.

    Is it possible to do this? Or would I have to layer loads of them, add reverb, a long attack time on each of them and bring them in and out as they hit on to the next note?

    automate the pitch... best way to do this is to drop the cymbal noise direct onto an audio track (no sampler, simpler, impulse etc) then reverse it there... from here add delay and reverb.

    then go to the little 'E' in the bottom left and here you can automate transpose/pitch (y)

    simples! :D

    Or if you load it into a sampler and automate the pitch bend wheel.
