MUSIC PRODUCTION – What is the envelope of a sound? ADSR Explained

In this tutorial made by the awesome channel Wickiemedia, you are going to learn what the envelope of a sound is. Sound synthesis techniques often employ an envelope generator that controls a sound’s parameters at any point in its duration. Most often this is an ADSR envelope, which may be applied to overall amplitude control, filter frequency, etc. The contour of an ADSR envelope is specified using four parameters:

  • Attack time is the time taken for initial run-up of level from nil to peak, beginning when the key is first pressed.
  • Decay time is the time taken for the subsequent run down from the attack level to the designated sustain level.
  • Sustain level is the level during the main sequence of the sound’s duration, until the key is released.
  • Release time is the time taken for the level to decay from the sustain level to zero after the key is released.

MY OPINION

A really awesome animated video for a clear understanding of the envelope of a sound !
