i am trying to determine is my M10 Poly Env is working correctly, I have emailed PG about this and he assures me (via a long confusing email) that mine is working ok, but i just need to hear it from other owners. Here is the problem:
the primary envelope works fine but the "attack,attack" envelope seems to work fine until the end of its first cycle where it doesn't drop down to 0 again, it stays stuck on the highest level- now the thing that makes me more suspicious is the two gate/trigger outs the EOC & EOA both have the same issue, staying at highest voltage. They send out nothing (0 volts) when I first turn the module on, but as soon as I trigger it they all send out max voltage and continue to with out dropping back to 0. the EOC trigger output puts out a continuous voltage but momentarily stops when the envelope is triggered. i have been testing this with the CV ins on the Model 13 and when using the "attack, attack" env the gate of the M13 stays open continuously. I have also tested it with a few other modules (eg on filter cutoff/resonance, VCO CV in, etc) and the behaviour is the same.
Now the env diagram on the EAR/PlanB site looks like this:
but this is how mine seems to work:
and here is PG's explanation:
can any of you either confirm or deny this? from the Plan B site i bought this hoping i could control (for example) one VCA with the AD env and a second VCA with the Attack Attack env, but with the AA env staying high all the time and only dropping to 0 at the start of the 1st attack phase this won't work...The Rise Only output is acting fine. It does stay high when it's not active - remember, the second half is an positively offset inversion of the decay function. So low becomes high at the end. Ditto for the EOA and EOC outs. They are gates, not triggers - when the Rise is active, the EOA signal is low. At all other times it's high and it goes high at the end of the attack (EOA) phase. When the Envelope is active, any stage of it (Rise or Fall), the EOC signal is low. When it's not active, the EOA is high and does this at the very end of the cycle.
