Attack1 (Attack EG1)
Specifies the time from note-on (when the
key is pressed) until the attack level (maxi-
mum value of the envelope) is reached.

Here you can adjust the settings of the Filter EG, which applies time-variant change to the tone (☞Figure 14-1). Use these settings to specify the
"shape" of the EG1, and use the FILTER parameter "EG1 Int1" (9. Filt1-B page ☞p.34) and "EG1 Int2" (11. Filt2-B page) to specify the amount of
effect that the EG will have. For details on how an EG (Envelope Generator) works, refer to EG2 (☞p.41).
You can use the EG1 as a Virtual Patch source modulate a parameter other than the filter cutoff frequency. (☞p.45)
Decay1 (Decay EG1)
Specifies the time from when the attack
level is reached until the sustain level (SUS-
TAIN) is reached.
Sustain1 (Sustain EG1)
Specifies the cutoff frequency that will be
maintained after the decay time has
elapsed, until you release the key.
EG1 and EG2
As the EG1 (Filter EG) changes the cutoff frequency, the tone will change. However, the
overall character of the sound will also depend on the volume changes produced by
the EG2 (Amplifier EG). For example, setting a long decay for the Filter EG (EG1) will
produce a different sound depending on how the decay is set in the Amp EG (EG2). It's
a good idea to be aware of both the EG 1(tone) settings and the EG2 (volume) settings
as you're editing.
Release1 (Release EG1)
Specifies the time from note-off (when the
key is released) until the level reaches 0.
