Envelope Pattern Node

Create a short, repeating automation pattern, this can be used to control other Nodes.

For example, to control the gain setting of a Gain Node, click Automate from input on the Gain Node’s gain setting, then connect the Envelope Pattern Node to the gain control input.

Settings #

In addition to the settings listed below, this Node also defines a repeating Envelope that can be edited from Node properties.

See Using the Envelope Editor for more information.

Min. valueSets the output value when the envelope is 0.
Max. valueSets the output value when the envelope is 1.
DurationSets the duration over which the envelope is played before repeating.
DeclickWhen set, “clicks” are removed from the output by applying small amounts of smoothing.
Logarithmic outputWhen set, the envelope is squared before transforming to the output range specified through the min value and max value settings.

The output value is interpolated between min value and max value through the envelope. For example, when the envelope defines 0, the minimum value is output; when the envelope defines 0.5, a value halfway between the minimum value and the maximum value is output.

Outputs #

EnvelopeThe current envelope value.

Technical Details #

  • Continues to output its value while paused
  • If placed on the Timeline and there is no clip defined at a particular point in time, always outputs zero, even if the min value setting is set to a non-zero value
  • If placed on the Timeline and there are 2 or more clips defined at a particular point in time, the produced output is the sum of those clips
