On the ADSR envelopes? Tell me more...

Actually it is your sequence.

Make it like this:

E-2   --    --   FE
---
---
[  ]
---
---
E-3  --   --   FE
---
---
---  --   --   00
---
.......

Both cases will work. FE turns the gate on and the [  ]   (or the 00 in the trigger column) will turn the gate off.


Here it doesn't make a difference if auto-gate is turned on.
And in case it is turned on, you only would need the note and the [  ] for the gate to work.

Use the same values as the second envelope and you will find out :-)

And delete the envelope commands in the FX lane, these are not needed when the source is 'Gate'.
When the first note comes, then the gate is set automatically (if auto gate is turned on, else use a Trigger with FE) on the note row.
Before the 2nd note you need to either add a note off or a trigger 00 because else there will be no proper release phase of the envelope (except for one-shot)

Currently its now really quiet and still no envelope. Sorry to be frustraiting..

OK, just more to cover:
You are using track 2. Be sure your envelope is also using Gate 2 and then the MOD you want to use.
The note off might be too short before the new note to finish the release phase. And E-3 doesn't have a note off.

Why is there a table running and what does it do?
Do you see the envelope getting into its' phases (red lines in the envelope?).

Don't worry, they work. There is just something that we might miss or can't see in your sequence.

I'm currently contemplating to get a second and maybe a third one of these. They are fairly cheap, only 6hp and for me work just nicely. Together with 4 sine/triangle LFOs (e.g. from a NerdSEQ CV16) and an Intellijel Quad Inverter you can have 4 signals morph between left and right w/o any special additional mixer.

Thanks. I tried this just now, but I'm still not getting snappy envelopes I do get some noticable differences when I adjust the envelope, but its not effecting the notes, just a gradual fade in and fade out as it loops through the pattern.

Edit, actually now i've played with the envelope a bit more, Its just a playin gthe notes with no break or ADSR.. Is there some universal setting I may have on that is messing it all up?

The above comment is targetted towards the CV16 envelopes. I have a project that uses a total of 10 of these and I have to adjust the A and R values when I increase the BPM.
There is a feature request aiming to "cure" this:

IVE GOT IT.

Glide modulate had a value in the current values for track 2. I' set it to zero and hey presto, its doing what it should!

You did say this, I know. I just didn't know where to look.

Thank you for your patience!!

Please load this attached project. I works on the MOD output 2 and track 2 and is only a simple thing. I just tried it. It is set to AD-SR mode.

Thanks for this, but I figured it, it was glide modulate having a value. Feeling extra dumb now, but I really appreciate you counselling me through it Smile
