Shaping sound with the Amp Envelope

So once the objects excite the string and the pickups pick up the vibration, signal flows into the amp envelope, over here. So this amp envelope is very similar to what we've seen in a lot of synthesizers in that it has four stages: attack, decay, sustain, and release. And typically, the amp envelope is the most important aspect in terms of determining the articulation of the sound. However, in Sculpture, the articulation is primarily created with the objects and also the material of the string. So depending on the characteristics and the amount of inner loss of the material and the way the string is being excited, you might have a short attack and short decay. Or if it's bowed, you might have a really long sustain.

So you're going to be doing most of your articulation shaping with the objects, but then you can further shape the volume of the sound with the amp envelope. So to demonstrate the amp envelope, what I'm going to do is adjust the setting of the objects to get a ...
