K10 // Dual Envelope
Kilpatrick Format Dual Envelope Generator - 1 Space
The K10 Dual Envelope offers a complete dual-channel traditional style ADSR
envelope generator with a number of interesting additional features. In the
simplest form, twisting the ATTACK, DECAY, SUSTAIN and RELEASE controls and
using the GATE IN will give the envelope control that is so familiar
to synthesists. But the K10 offers even more through the use of a number of voltage
inputs which take the module to a completely different level.
Additionally each of the A, D, S and R stages has an LED which shows when the
stage is active. This is particularly useful when tuning the envelope.
Nearly all parameters on the K10 (except for the SHAPE control) are voltage
controllable. Each of the A, D, S and R stages can be modulated up or down
from the front panel setting by voltage. The parameters can even be modulated while
a phase is active, either speeding up or slowing down the fade in realtime,
or modulating the sustain level.
The PEAK CV IN allows the overall size of the output envelope to be adjusted
by a voltage, enabling velocity-sensitive playing. Combined with the K1 Mixer
Interface running in velocity MIDI to CV mode, this allows fully expressive
A unique aspect of the K10 is the shape control which bends the normally linear
up and down ramps. At one extreme the ramps become exponential, creating a
sharp peak leading to a very punchy sound. At the other extreme a very rounded
logarithmic shape is used, creating fat curves that are high more of the time.
