Yeah I do this all the time.eggnchips wrote:I like to increase the attack time on percussive elements such as hats or maracas, taking away the thwack. It kind of blends them into the background, making them more subtle. Great if you're after that kind of mood.
Also I tend to put my single drum samples into individual samplers so I can modulate the ADSR throughout the track. I like to record modulations of the release time throughout the tracks on things like open hats just to make the track move a bit more and so its always changing throughout the track.
Regarding envelopes on synths rather then samplers, there is a trick on the prophet08 using the modulators section to self modulate the attack and decay meaning that you can dial in whatever envelope curve you want. It's a pretty cool effect, that I use all the time on my bass and perc sounds.
