Extended ADSRs?

I've uploaded a bunch of custom samples that I want to use for creating ambient music.
Problem is - all the factory envelope parameters seem very limited in their range.
Might it be possible (perhaps using a software editor, or something) to extend the range?
Currently, the maximum Attack time, is really very short, less than a couple of seconds...

    you could try modulating the master vol parameter.

    Understood, however I'm not sure how that would affect things as far as polyphony, effects, multiple tracks, etc.

    Option 1: Try the different sample playback modes (cut, once), they respond differently to the envelope

    Option 2: Yes like amiga said, if you want fades, automate the volume - then consolidate the track to a new sample (to save resources and keep it tidy) with (quantized)-resampling (hold Rec + press Play for quantized start/ stop resampling,
    which is probably best when dealing with automation and the sequencer. /Hold Rec and press an aud. pad to instead resample from the start of a sound)

    :)

    Thanks for that!

    there are always going to be work arounds. Having a better envelope is a much better solution since it is intuitive and does not require several steps to get the desired effect.
