Hi All !

Hope there's no limit to the no of posts in any one day :)

On the peak issue .
I've only played a Mini a few times, eons ago, so my observations on
this stem mostly from my time with the F�nix .

It's EG1 has following controls : Attack time, Peak time, Decay
time, Sustain level, Release Time . The Peak time gives control of
how long the env remains at max level, turning the "shape" into a
trapezoid . When the time's up, the Decay kicks in . At shorter A
and D times this gives more "body" to the hit, as you get full volume
or whatever for this short time . The mini's envelopes are said to
always do this . Having a knob to control this "feature" is way more
versatile . The parameter is not voltage controlled though, in the
F�nix . Could be interesting to let pitch cv (or it's inverse)
control (some of) this peak, or/and velocity, or/and whatever . As
you see, this parameter has to be built into the EG itself .

Ha, ascimatic is fun :)

Now combine this with sustain at zero V for extra enjoyment ...
i hope .

Fog cleared up ?

Take care .

Keep 'em oscillating :)
