Shaping the volume with the ADSR

So we've got the amplifier section here, and with the volume knob, we can control overall output level of the instrument. So if I'm playing a note, I can adjust the output level here so it's softer. And like we saw before with ES_E and ES_M, I can use the velocity on the keyboard to control that level. And so I use this Velocity-to-Volume knob here. So I'll set that somewhere in the middle. And so now when I play softly, I get a softer note; when I play loudly, I get a louder note.

So it's responding to velocity, whereas before when I had this all the way to the left here, if I play softly, it's that volume; if I play with more force, it's the same volume. So this allows me to be more expressive with the dynamics of my playing. So, attached to the amplifier we have this ADSR envelope. So it's going to control the contour of the volume of the sound. We've seen simplified envelopes so far in ES E and ES M where they were Attack and Release, or in the case of ...
