Q: Interaction of Gate and ADSR in Amplifier Module

Post by JamminFool » 06 Oct 2005 01:54

hi kasper,
thanks for your help so far.

i'm trying to get a handle on how the Gate in an Amplifier interacts with the release phase of an ADSR used to modulate the Amp knob in the same Amplifier.

should this be a case of using one or the other? what are the characteristics of the gate? it seems to ramp down quick enough that the release phase of an envelope would have no affect.

seems like the recommendation would be to not use the gate if an ADSR is already being used in order to control the ADS phases of the signal, or is there any other interesting effects which could result from allowing the Release setting to interact with the gate (i couldn't tell from my experiments)?

Hi Jammin!

Seems I overlooked this post...
so sorry!

Yes, you are right, I doessn't really make sense to use gate while an adsr is hooked up to the amp.
It makes sense to think of the gate as a "poor mans" envelope....
