Tip: Better envelopes through modulation.
I keep reading that the Ds envelopes leave people wanting. Short max attacks, difficulty finding the sweet spot for decay, etc.. Not so.
Need a longer attack? Modulate the envelope positively with its own attack.
Snappier decay? Modulate the envelope negatively with its own decay.
This has really opened up the synth engine for me. Since I learned this tip, I’ve had zero complaints about the envelopes.
