Modular Diary

I’ve made a small start on putting together an Audulus version of the Hordijk Dual Envelope generator.

Hordijk mentions in one of his videos that designing an envelope generator is perhaps the most difficult of all the modules in that there are so many possibilities to consider, and that certainly rings true as I’ve begun to explore it.

In this first small patch I’ve adapted some of Stephen Schoen’s uLope modules to include a trigger mode – i.e. the attack time of the envelope is independent of the gate time. This means that a short trigger can result in a long attack swell, or a short attack can be triggered with a broad gate. It’s a simple feature that opens up a number of possibilities. With the attack time set to longer than the clock rate the envelope generator can suddenly starts to function as a kind of clock divider, as Hordijk points out in his NOVARS tutorial video. With in-between settings, e.g. with the gate setting in before the release stage has completed, interesting rhythmic effects can arise.

I’ve uploaded the patch to the Audulus forum.
