The quadlopes is four simple attack & release envelopes. Each envelope can be gated individually and/or simultaneously with the master gate input.
Envelopes will begin the attack phase as soon as there’s a gate present. If the gate outlives the length of the attack then the envelope will “plateau” or enter a sort of sustain stage. When a gate is no longer present then the envelope starts it’s release/decay phase.
Envelopes can be re-gated. If an envelope is halfway through a release and then a gate is re-applied, the attack phase will begin again from wherever release left off. The master gate will re-gate any of the individual envelopes as well.
Any sort of negative gate will be ignored; audio/LFO signals will be chopped in half. Gates don’t necessarily need to be square shaped though, and the rule of [(input voltage x 1.6) = output envelope] applies just as well to different gate shapes (triangle, saw, etc). Therefore gate shape will have an impact on the envelope shape.
Triggers will not do much. They’re basically a fast gate and unless the attack and decay are already super quick then the envelope will not have sufficient time to develop.

- Not an easy build - Not working!Review by James
- I just purchased and built this module. I have built many modules before this, never any issues. This kit does NOT come with a build guide. When I received it, it looked fairly simple.. but the PC board uses symbols for some of the components (which required some research) and after building it.. it does NOT work. I have contacted noise reap to get any info on the circuit and ways to test it so I can track down the issue. Unless you are someone who designs circuits, I cannot recommend this kit at all.
