Use metamodule as envelope generator

Post by blacbeard » Wed Dec 24, 2014 12:10 am

I have found the metamodule is useful as an envelope generator. With a simple pattern and the slide automation effects, envelopes for parameters such as pitch can be made for more interesting synth patches.

Hi blacbeard, do you have an example metamodule that does what you are talking about. I'm intrigued.

Hi Nopcorp,
Here is an old school alpha juno hoover patch I made. Load the metamodule and play it, you can hear in the attack of the patch there is a quick pitch bend like you might hear in an old rave, gabba or jungle track. If you open the metamodule in edit mode you will see that this is achieved using the pitch slide effect commands.

Other obvious uses for this kind of envelope control would be for making kick drums like 808 kicks and so forth. 808 kicks rely on a basic sine wave with a very rapid pitch drop to generate the click.

On a completely different note, I hope anyone who is interested in the Sound2Ctrl generator will be interested in how I have used it to make an LFO to achieve a meaty PWM sound with the Square oscillator.
