Shepard Tone Effect Tutorial

Have you ever heard about Shepard Tone ? It's a very interesting effect named after Roger Shepard. It's a sound consisting of a superposition of sine waves separated by octaves. When played with the base pitch of the tone moving upwards or downwards, it is referred to as the Shepard scale. This creates the auditory illusion of a tone that continually ascends or descends in pitch, yet which ultimately seems to get no higher or lower.

Electronic Artist - Tom Cosm has created very good video tutorial (actually two parts that last 18 minutes) about Shepard's Tone. Check it out - maybe It won't help you create ie. stunning trance track but the effect is very interesting.

Tom, in this tutorial, uses Ableton but actually any DAW can be used.
