Documentation & Help


A Trapezoid Envelope module with included VCA, taking inspiration from the EMS VCS and Synthi vintage synths, the Trapezoid generator allows simple envelopes and repeating loop. With flexible linear and logarithmic slopes for both the attack and decay phases, plus options for gated or fixed on stage, and single-shot, repeating or gated repeat mode, the module takes the ideas from the VCS/Synthi and allows even more creativity. The module includes a simple VCA path to allow easy use of the envelope with audio or control signals, now with optional linear or exponential modes.

Also sold as part of Andrew Macaulay's Envelope and LFO Collection and included in Andrew Macaulay's Ultimate Bundle.
