- The envelope is an term to describe how a sounds intensity is
changed over time.
- Envelope Follower
- An envelope follower will monitor the intensity of an input signal
and output a signal which follows this intensity. Envelope followers
can be used to process signals intensity, in such system will the
envelope follower be a form of detecor where as for instance
VCAs can be used as modulators. Example of
such applications are compressors, limiters, expanders, hold-pedals
- Envelope Generator
- A generator which generates an envelope.
Of the many forms of envelope generators can one find
They are combinations of various envelope characteristics like
release which determines the shape and
time of the various phases of an envelope. An envelope is triggered
via an gate or trigg
input. Some or all of the parameters may be controled by input signals.
- Short for equaliser.
- A filter which will raise (boost) or lower a portion of the
frequency spectra while leaving the other ranges relatively
untouched. An equaliser is used to (as the name implies) equalise the
frequency curve so that the total frequency curve of a system becomes
flat(er). Equalisers normaly work in one of more band-pass regions and
may also have an upper and/or lower shelf adjustment.
