Using Sculpture’s Amplitude Envelope Parameters

The parameters discussed in this section apply on a per-voice basis. This is a straightforward ADSR envelope that scales the pickup signals before passing them on to the Waveshaper and filter. The positioning of the amplitude envelope at this point in the signal path produces more natural sounding results because you can control signal levels before sending them to the Waveshaper (if used). The Waveshaper can have a significant impact on the spectral content of the sound, which can lead to synthetic sounding results.

Note: Even with long decay and release times, the sound may decay quickly. This can be caused by high Inner or Media Loss values in the string material section or by objects (2 or 3) that are used to damp the string.
