Hi !!

Thanks for all your replies ! And suggestions !

Answering you Ben, i often play weird drones, i mean sounds with many
different layers intermixed all togethers. Yes, it can be static, but
rhythms are also there.
Basically, i use envelope followers for processing some of my tracks,
and then their control voltages help me for animate my whole sound or
for dynamics effects...
Actually, as i said, enveloppe followers i used work, but they are not
as efficient as i would like : i understand now as we are talking
about amplitude.

Maybe as purposed here, i should build an isolator or a specific
filter at the input and then see what happens.. I gonna check that.
