Classic ADSR type envelope generator. Decay and release times can be voltage controlled via a common input for positive CVs between 0 and +10V. Time ranges of the segments: Attack: 0,5mS to 10S; Decay: 2,5mS to 20S; Release: 2,5mS to 20S.
Two switches affect the behaviour of the RS-60 in nine different ways:
- STD/STD: Normal ADSR mode. A gate triggers and holds the envelope up to the release phase.
- HOLD/STD: hold will hold the envelope at sustain level. Signals in the gate input have no effect. A signal at the Trig/Retrig-In restarts the AD phase and keeps the envelope at sustain level until the next trigger.
- ONESHOT/STD: Press the swithc into oneshot position and you´ll fire the envelope once. trigger signals at the Trig-Retrig-In will restart th envelope only when oneshot switch is pressed.
- HOLD / GATED REPEAT and HOLD / AUTO REPEAT have the same effect. Attack and decay phases will be repeated and the module acts as a LFO. Rate is dependent on the A/D times and range from 0.003Hz to 300Hz. A gate at the Trig-Retrig-In holds the signal at +10V, without gate the LFO continues cycling.
- STD / GATED REPEAT: The envelope will onbly be looped when a gate signal is present at the Gate-Trig-in
- STD / AUTO REPEAT: A gate at the Trig-Retrig-In holds the signal at +10V, without gate the LFO continues cycling.
- ONE SHOT / GATED REPEAT and ONE SHOT / AUTO REPEAT have the same effect. the oneshot switch generates a gate and fires the envelope. A gate at the Gate-Trig-in will hold the envelope at +10V, without gate the envelope will be looped.
The envelope signal is present at two outputs A and B and it´s level can be controlled and inverted with a potentiometer.
Similar to MakeNoise´s Maths you can influence the curve of the envelope by feedbacking it: connect the positive output with the CV input for decay/release; the stronger the modulation the shorter, more exponential and punchy the envelope gets.
Usage with Eurorack:
Analogue Systems' modules are designed solely for use in cases and cabinets made by Analogue Systems. Through the use of adaptors or adaptor cables, however, it is possible to connect them to Eurorack cases.
Should you chose to use an Analogue Systems module in an Eurorack case, please note that the warranties are thus void and the use occurs at your own risk! If the module is plugged in incorrectly and therefore damaged the customer has to bear any costs for repair and shipping!
Because of the different position of the mounting holes there will be a gap of 0.5HP (= 2.5 mm) when mounting an Analogue Systems module next to a Eurorack module. Take this into consideration when planning your system. Gaps can be covered with 1.5HP wide blank panels by Doepfer.
