Γωνίες is a dual envelope generator with unprecedented range and precision, thanks to its unique tempo sync ability. Each envelope has two stages with CV control, adjustable shape, and three modes: trigger, gate and cycle. The attack and release times are tempo dependent and can be synchronised to an arbitrary clock. In cycle mode the envelopes can be used as variable shape, voltage controlled LFOs.
Γωνίες is Greek for Angles, transliterated to English as Gonies.
Γωνίες features two independent envelopes on the left and right side of the module.
The top knobs control attack: the envelope rise time. The second knob sets the fall time, or release. Third knob controls the curve, which ranges from logarithmic, to linear in the centre, to exponential at fully clockwise. Adjusting the shape does not affect the attack or release times.
The toggle switches set the envelope mode: Trigger mode in the down position, Gate in middle, Cycle in the top position. In Trigger mode the envelope will proceed immediately from the attack phase to the release phase. In Gate mode the envelope will stay at maximum output level for the duration of the input trigger signal. In Cycle mode the attack phase will be immediately restarted once the release phase has finished, creating an LFO function.
The two envelopes share a master tempo, which is used to calculate the attack and release times internally. With no clock connected to the tempo input, the tempo defaults to 100BPM. By providing a regular trigger the envelope times will be adjusted accordingly, so given a 50BPM clock they will take twice as long, and at 200BPM they will run twice as fast. Changing the tempo also changes the range of the attack and fall times. At 100BPM the range is ?? mS to ?? mS.
