automations that somehow lift or lower the sound
(filters, delays, pitchbends, pan, any sort of cool effect^).
and than there are samplepacks of lifters/risers/downers/impacts/explosions
or just use a very long reverb on your own sound, record the reverb, reverse it and use it as custom lifter
(advanced: reverse the original signal aswell, before you record the reverb, than reverse back.)
also drumbreaks , just do something fancy with your beat before the part changes.
