Synth Glossary

An envelope generator generates a signal that changes through the length of a sound, normally to control the loudness of that sound. An example of its use is to control the volume of a piano sound. It creates a signal that goes from low to high very quickly (the loud bit when the key is pressed), then goes down slowly as the sounds gets quieter. They are also used to drive other parts of the synthesizer, for example the filter....


With todays technology it is now possible to recreate all the sounds that the classic analog synths gave us.

Only now we are not limited to poor midi specs and hugely overpriced, secondhand equipment. Not only do these time-machines create the old familar sounds they can also let us create new and exciting sounds with the ease of analog programming.
