Envelope attack

0 votes

I am wondering why the envelope attacks are all the same on this sound when I am able to get different decays. Is it perhaps where the ADSR sound is placed? I would like to have scaled random attacks in the same way that the decays are functioning.

I hear a difference in the attack durations. To notice a more extreme changes, you could comment out the minimum 3 s or try a smaller minimum offset, for example:

!On1 nextRandom abs * (6 - 3) "+ 3 s"

Maybe the difference between 3 second and 6 second attacks is not so apparent.

I'd definitely use individual ADSRs on each oscilator.
Also the various different math happening after the 'nextRandom abs' is confusing and possibly unneccessary because the abs is already giving you a positive random number from 0-1. You could just scale it with a number or hotvalue while you are testing it
