Not sure if this is a bug or if is a feature request:
In this thread I was exploring how to achieve a visually satisfying envelope for an update to the Korg EX-8000 preset…
I happened on the new ADDSR envelope. I was able to map things correctly when I locked Level 1 to maximum, then Rate 1 is Attack, Rate 2 Decay, Level 2 Break Point, Rate 3 is Slope, Level 3 is Sustain, Level 4 locked to minimum, Rate 4 is Release.
So far so good.
Here are the issues I have encountered:
For the Rate categories it doesn’t matter what the maximum is set to, so in my case as the EX-8000 envelope values go from 0 to 31, I would favor that.
For the Level categories I found that if I only set the max to 31 the Sustain didn’t reach the full height of the display, only when set to 127.
That seems incongruent.
The Rate values are inverse to the EX-8000: 31 is the shortest Attack and 0 the longest.
I would like that either changed or at least have the option to change that.
The labeling when called up and zoomed in on the E1 reads Level 1, Rate 1, Level 2, etc.
I find that not as useful as if I could relabel them with whatever I want.
As workaround this (lowest row) works:
The zoomed in look works well on the E1. The workaround version has issues with the Rates flickering and only the Levels working properly (judging from the animation of the envelope).
As well (like shown in the video of the other thread) the highlighting of the adjustable portion of the envelope when just touching the encoder is off: When I touch the Decay encoder the Sustain portion of the envelope for instance highlights, the Release highlights when touching the Sustain encoder, etc.
I think this pretty much sums up what I experienced with the new ADDSR envelope.
Please let me know if I just don’t properly understand how it is supposed to work.
