Envelope Generator II

Version 0.1 from February 2021

Envelope Generator that I built for my modular synth drum machine project. It’s based on the “Simple DIY Envelope Generator” by Look Mum No Computer 🥳


  • ✅ Attack and release
  • ✅ 2 outputs (for e.g. VCO pitch and VCA)
  • ✅ Visual indication a.k.a. LED


Improvement Potential

Unfortunately the output voltage equals the input voltage in this implementation. That means only +5V coming from my sequencer. That is not sufficient for all my instruments on the drum machine 🤷‍♂️. The snare needs a higher peak of 10 V or more in the envelope.

Wait, there's more?
