4MSEnvVCA Envelope + VCA
- No Hassle
The EnvVCA is a compact, analog EG/LFO with built-in VCA from 4MS. Two Rise/Fall sliders with three-way range switches are the core of this handy module, with envelope durations which can go as fast as 12ms or as long as 20 minutes. A dedicated level slider lets you attenuate the signal, and a Cycle button, with corresponding CV trigger, turns the Envelope into an looping LFO-like signal generator. Both the Rise and Fall times share a single CV control—but both have independent attenuverters, allowing for highly customizable CV response despite the shared input.
The VCA is a low-noise, DC-coupled circuit, making it perfect for audio or CV sources alike. Note that the VCA is coupled to the internal envelope generator—making it simple to use as an end-of-voice articulation controller. The unique Follow jack lets you generate complex modulations, slew, and to add a sustain stage to the envelope...allowing for both AD and ASR envelope shapes.
